Nicole Richie is denying rumors that she’s pregnant. Per Us Weekly:
Nicole Richie would like to clear the air.
This past week, the fashion designer and mother of two became the subject of fresh pregnancy rumors after some blogs claimed she was sporting a baby bump in new photos.
Richie, 29, told UsMagazine.com in a statement Friday:
“Contrary to recent speculation, I am not pregnant. This irresponsible reporting continues to feed an atmosphere of self-doubt and insecurity. To publicly point out a change in anyone’s body is mean spirited and cruel. People’s bodies change and change again. This is not newsworthy and is a waste of valuable media space that should be used for more important issues.”
Nicole Richie initially became famous for being Paris Hilton’s chubby friend. She became more famous for her attempts to conquer Castle Grayskull. She peaked when she got pregnant the first time, ostensibly to stay out of jail. When you’ve built your entire career off of publicity, pregnancies, and off of your body fluctuating between overweight and Auschwitz escapee, this speculation really shouldn’t bother you so much. You know what should bother you? People who don’t use turn signals. Oh, and people who go the wrong way on the highway. I know, right? How annoying!
