The “We Go Up” rapper got word of the rumors and took to Instagram live to set the record straight.
Chilling in her red and blonde wig, Nicki is seen all smiles talking to her fans, letting it be known that she is indeed not pregnant.
“ Wait, did I say it wrong? Umm, I meant to say I’m not pregnant, I’m Fat!” she says in laughter.
