Beyonce Knowles may be enjoying quarantine a little too much. Not having to worry about her looks on stage, the former Destiny’s Child star is rumored to be letting herself go in terms of what foods she’s consuming lately.
A so-called Hollywood insider tells MTO News that the wife of Jay-Z has put on a “good amount” of weight recently. The source estimates that the R&B diva is “over 200 pounds” now after piling up the pounds over the past few weeks.
“She’s not quite a BBW yet. But she’s between thick and big girl,” the insider describes Beyonce’s body now. If the insider’s estimate is accurate, the 38-year-old mother of three has gained around 55 pounds from her typical weight of 145 pounds.
Her rumored weight gain aside, Beyonce has been celebrating earning another No. 1 song with her recent collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion. The “If I Were a Boy” singer jumped on the raptress’ “Savage” remix, which landed #1 on Billboard Hot 100 following its release on April 29. The song marks Bey’s first material of music for the year.
Congratulating her collaborator on the song’s chart performance, Bey has sent Megan some flowers, which the latter has shown on her Instagram Stories. “We did that thank you queen @beyonce,” she captioned a Boomerang clip of the flower bouquet.
Megan also shared her excitement on Twitter, writing, “AHHHHHHH HOTTTIESSSSSSS WTFFFFFFF.” Thanking her fans and Beyonce’s Beyhive for making the song No. 1, she added in a separate tweet, “Hotties and the Hive did dat.”
Megan previously emotionally talked about her collaboration with Bey. “Like I really couldn’t believe it. It’s really crazy because my momma was a really huge fan of Beyonce and she used to make me watch a lot of Beyonce stuff,” she said after the song’s release. “When I met her I was like ‘oh my god’ and I didn’t want to be like ‘oh my god Beyonce me and my momma love you like this s**t is crazy and I can’t believe we meeting you.’ “
Feeling honored to have had the chance to team up with her mom’s favorite artist, Megan continued gushing, “For Beyonce to even do a song with me, I really only been out for like 2 years this is the beginning of year number 2, like Beyonce? Beyonce! It’s really crazy. They told me that Beyonce was gonna get on ‘Savage’
