According to an insider close with Jay-Z, the rapper has apparently denied all rumours surrounding his wife's uterus. The rapper apparently told Hot 97 Program Director Ebro Darden that there is nothing to the rumours, with the DJ relaying the news to his audience during Monday's show (May 20).

Darden, or Old Man Ebro as he is known in more hip circles, said on air that he emailed Jay over the weekend to congratulate him on the news, however the rapper's response seemed to put a dampener on any potential baby showers. Ebro said on the morning show, "I emailed on some congratulations, send my love to the family, blah, blah, blah," with Jay's emailed reply simply saying; "It's not true. The news is worse than blogs."

Jay-Z Apparently Denied The Rumours Himself

Beyoncé has also addressed these rumours, presumably, by posting an Instagram photo this weekend that read; "I can't stop the rumors from starting, and I can't really change peoples minds who believe them, all I can do is sit back and laugh at these low life people who have nothing better to do than talk about me." The 'Crazy In Love' singer took the photo down soon after and hasn't commented on the situation since. So, we guess that the rumours aren't true then. Or are they?

The rumours began circulating heavily on Friday and seem to have been shot down almost immediately, so is this a genuine cry for privacy from two of the most watched people in the world or a rouse to keep the pregnancy a surprise? We're guessing it's the first one.
