Paris Jackson could be pregnant — and engaged — at age 16. According to KpopStarz, the only daughter of the late Michael Jackson posted a photo on Instagram in July that appeared to show off a sizable baby bump. While there have been claims that the photo was just taken at a bad angle, the rumors just haven’t stopped. Jackson’s rep refused to comment on her personal life, and that stirred the rumor pot even more.
According to Christian Today, the baby rumors picked up speed after Paris was spotted checking out engagement rings with her unnamed boyfriend. Also, sources say that the 16-year-old was spotted drinking water rather than wine at dinner one night (forget the fact that she’s underage).
“I saw her at dinner and she twice made a toast drinking water instead of wine. That and the prominent stomach bulge got people talking. It’s highly unusual to toast with anything but a full glass of wine.”
Paris Jackson has posted other photos of herself over the past two months, and it’s clear to see that Paris doesn’t have a baby bump — or anything close to one. A simple peak at the following photos should put the pregnancy rumors to bed — even if the engagement rumors keep coming.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, there has been quite a bit of backlash from fans in regard to the rumors. Many people have taken to Twitter to defend Paris, saying things like the rumors were made up to make the Jackson family look bad.
The media is stupid, saying Paris Jackson is pregnant because she toasted with water instead of wine… WTF she’s 16 she can’t drink wine..

Paris Jackson hasn’t commented on the rumors at all, but it does seem obvious that she isn’t having a baby. Since her suicide attempt, Paris has been really focused on staying happy and being in a good place — the tabloids certainly don’t help her maintain a positive outlook, but hopefully she doesn’t give them too much of her time.
