Get this: Internet conspiracy theorists have alleged that Beyonce is only pretending to be pregnant and that she and rapper/husband Jay-Z hired a surrogate to carry their child to term instead. Sounds nutty, right?

The evidence cited is an interview Beyonce gave to Australian TV in which her baby bump appears to fold in the middle, leading some to believe that she’s wearing padding.

Beyonce’s rep has denied the rumors, calling them “stupid, ridiculous and false” in a statement to ABC News.

What do you think? Is Beyonce truly expecting or is this all part of some elaborate plot to dupe the public?

Review the video evidence below and watch closely when Beyonce sits in her chair:
