For months, people have been wondering whether or not Demi Moore was pregnant. One week she had a big tummy (um, empire blouse thank you very much) and the next week the tummy would be gone, then back again the following week. Well, a couple weeks back, the National Enquirer did a cover story on how Demi supposedly had a miscarriage at 5 months. I was never convinced that she was pregnant to begin with and if it actually was true, the whole story was just too sad to print or gossip about so I chose not to cover it. Well, now it seems that the whole story was bogus even to the point where Star Magazine pulled a follow up article to The National Enquirer's "exclusive" at the last minute after the New York Daily News Gatecrasher column questioned whether there had ever been a baby to lose.
Radar's Fresh Intelligence had the following scoop: “Star was going to follow up the Enquirer ‘exclusive’ with its own story claiming Demi had given premature birth to a stillborn five-month-old boy over Memorial Day weekend,” says a tabloid whistle-blower, who slipped us a copy of the killed spread, slated for the August 15 issue on stands last week.
The somber three-page article praises Moore and supposed baby daddy Ashton Kutcher for “carry[ing] on” in the face of their fake miscarriage, then speculates that the imaginary tragedy could either “bring them together or pull them apart.” To ease the grief of America’s supermarket shoppers, the story has the couple recovering from the nonexistent blow by spending “several weeks in seclusion, healing as a twosome.” The caption on a photo of Kutcher, Moore and her three daughters adds bittersweet reassurance that “Ashton can still be a ‘dad.’”
“The pages were done, laid out, and sent to press on Friday,” says our insider. “But suddenly last Monday, the story was pulled. No one would say why. It just disappeared. But everyone thinks that either Bonnie got spooked by the Daily News item or the Enquirer got a nasty legal letter from Demi’s attorneys. Or both.” AMI spokesman Stu Zakim explained that the only reason the story was yanked was because “Star’s policy is not to report on miscarriages. It’s an invasion of privacy.”
Um, ya. Ok.
Update: For those of you who keep asking me whether or not I think she is pregnant or ever was, the answer is no, as you can see from the recent picture below of Demi leaving the gym.
