Don't mess with the Beyhive! Beyoncé is finally responding to the rumors surrounding her seemingly bee-stung lips.
The "Hold Up" singer's publicist, Yvette Noel-Schure, is going on the attack after reports accused Beyoncé of getting injections to her famous pout — and confirmed that the 35-year-old did, in fact, wake up like this.
"Did you know that in addition to weight gain there is often a dramatic change in the blood flow in the system and increased fluid causing swelling?" she told Gossip Cop. "Do you know that often women’s gums get swollen? Do you know that it sometimes affects our speech, our ability to chew intently and a host of other things?”

She continued, "But the sacrifice to our faces, our feet, and our entire bodies is something we welcome because we bring beautiful humans into the world who will one day combat your hate and negativity. I stood silent during Beyoncé's first pregnancy when you thought it was okay to bully her like the cowards you are when you accused her of never being pregnant, but I simply cannot this time.”
Beyoncé announced she was expecting twins with husband Jay Z in February and the couple is already making preparations to ensure everything goes smoothly during delivery. Unlike daughter Blue Ivy, 5, who was born in NYC, the twins will be born at LA's Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
"They scheduled the C-section and prepared an A and a B team as decoys to confuse photographers and fans, and everyone signed confidentiality agreements," a source told In Touch. "Jay and Beyoncé have also been arguing with the hospital about the use of security cameras. Jay doesn’t want cameras in the room, hallways or elevators, which is an impossible request,” says a source."
The insider continued, “They also made a plan to have everything fully catered so they don’t have to socialize in the hospital.”
