Since Beyonce triumphantly revealed her growing baby bump at the 2011 MTV VMAs, there have been whispers doubting the bun in Bey's oven. Some even claim that the mommy-to-be is really rocking a prosthetic belly. Now, Beyonce's publicist has come forward to dismiss the rumors.

The statement comes after MediaTakeOut.com's most recent allegation that the diva's pregnant stomach had briefly appeared to strangely shift and deflate during an interview for an Australian television program.

Beyonce's publicist Yvette Noel-Schure tells ABC News that all this prop belly fuss is, "Stupid, ridiculous and false."

Since revealing she was expecting, Beyonce hasn't exactly shied away from the spotlight, proudly showcasing her baby bump in risque maternity wear throughout the recently premiered video for 'Countdown.' Here's hoping Bey continues to have the same "bump confidence" until she's scheduled to give birth in February.
