Singer Rihanna is reportedly not pregnant.

Fans decided the singer was hinting at pregnancy during an interview at her annual Diamond Ball on Thursday night, according to a report published by TMZ.

Sources close to the singer, however, claimed Rihanna is definitely not pregnant, TMZ reported.

In the interview, Rihanna referenced giving birth.

“I’m a black woman,” Rihanna said in an interview with Essence. “I come from a black woman who came from a black woman who came from a black woman and I’m going to give birth to a black woman. That’s who I am. It’s the core of who I am in spirit and in DNA. And I always stand up for what I believe in and who I love and who I know, who I respect.” (RELATED: Report: Rihanna Becomes The World’s Richest Female)

Fans took the “I’m going to give birth to a black woman” pretty seriously, and social media blew up with the rumor.

“I found out Rihanna is pregnant and I’ve cancelled my appearance at school today … IM TIRED OF BEING CHEATED ON,” one social media user tweeted.

“Ok, so Rihanna is pregnant actually for real! She said ‘I’m gonna give birth to a black woman’ RIP next album, hello lil RiRi,” another user added.
