Veteran r&b singer Mariah Carey has finally come forward to address speculation that she may be pregnant after months of rumors and allegations. The superstar released a statement saying not even her publicist is certain of her alleged pregnancy status.
“I appreciate everyone’s well wishes. But I am very superstitious,” she wrote on her website Wednesday. “When the time is right, everyone will know-even Cindi Berger [her publicist].”
Last week, Carey’s husband, Nick Cannon, publicly said he would neither confirm nor deny pregnancy reports.
“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it time and time again — when my wife feels like talking about whatever she wants to talk about, you will hear it directly from her. We know that we’re public figures and that’s something but…that’s something that you want to keep near and dear… until you’re 100 percent sure in any situation…There’s a certain time limit that you’re supposed to wait before you actually can officially say that you are. You’ve got to take all those things into factor and it gets really heightened when you’re one of the most famous people in the world because you don’t want to mislead anybody.”
