Rumors that the 13-year-old singer was pregnant began swirling on social media over the weekend. E! Online reports that CNN’s iReport apparently picked up the story, which has since been deleted. Salon has a screen shot of the story here.

Black used Twitter to put the rumors to bed: “I thought it was May 15th . . . not April Fools Day. I'm absolutely NOT pregnant.” Since “Friday,” which was recently covered on “Glee,” went viral, Black has been the victim of some pretty rough Internet criticism and bullying. I guess Internet stardom isn’t all “fun, fun, fun, fun.”
