Please don’t jump down my throat for reporting this – as it appeared in National Enquirer, the least reliable of all tabloids, I seriously doubt its veracity, but thought it warranted a mention and that’s why I am categorizing it as a "rumor" and nothing else.
According to the National Enquirer, Demi Moore has suffered a miscarriage in her fifth month. An unnamed source is quoted as saying, "Demi thought she miscarried because of her age — but a doctor said that was absolutely not the case." According to an "insider," "Demi developed a problem with her placenta during her fifth month of pregnancy, and she miscarried and lost the baby. It’s rare for problems like this to occur in the second trimester, but it’s not without precedent. She was crushed at losing the little baby she wanted so much."
This could explain why Demi has been seen until very recently wearing baggy clothes and hiding behind large purses. This could also explain why she and Ashton never announced a pregnancy to begin with- for fear that an age-related or other complication like this might happen. This could also explain why she was most recently photographed looking extremely svelte.
If the rumor is true, it’s awful and I feel very sad for the couple. If the rumor is not true, I feel bad that it is being reported as such.
