Demi Moore is quashing rumors that she’s expecting. She told People Magazine, "The rumors are just that: rumors."
Moore’s rep Stephen Huvane said: "Having another child is something Demi would like to do, but she cannot at this time say she is pregnant."
As to be expected, boyfriend Ashton Kutcher is handling the rumors with humor. When asked by David Letterman on his show whether his girlfriend was pregnant, Ashton said, "not that I know of. I mean, we had sex this week, so it could be." He also said, "If she is (pregnant), I gotta go find some guy and kick his ass."
On MTV’s Total Request Live, he said, "I took a pregnancy test this morning. I peed negative."
If Demi is not pregnant, how do rumors like this get started and continue to fester? It’s one thing for Star or In Touch to speculate when celebs are going to have a baby or tease on the cover "Trista and Ryan’s Baby Plans" like it’s a done deal when the only allusion to it is them saying "yes, we want to have kids eventually." It’s quite another for Star to have a cover story announcing "Demi Pregnant at 42!" when the star claims it’s not true. Could this be a rumor created by Ashton’s publicist to help promote his new movie with Bernie Mac, "Guess Who"?
How do you think these rumors get started? (Please refrain from commenting if you are going to say something blatantly negative.)
