Over the weekend, a paparazzi site named The Hollywood Fix shocked netizens when it claimed that 2 members of BLACKPINK – Rosé and Jennie – might be pregnant.
The absurd assumption came after the 2 K-pop stars were spotted shopping for children’s clothing at Couture Kids On Robertson in West Hollywood, CA. It’s social media posts have since gone viral online.
As you can see from the screenshot above, The Hollywood Fix’s tweet alone has garnered 3k retweets, 12.8k quote tweets, and 13k likes. Even its YouTube video has gained 128k views alone. Korean sites such as AllKpop and Koreaboo were also baffled by The Hollywood Fix’s clickbait title.
Although some suggest that they were buying some gifts for Halsey’s baby, it was later reported that Rosé surprised Belgian fashion designer Anthony Vaccarello with some children’s clothing for his newborn baby. They even took to their Instagram Stories to post about Rosé’s visit.
The pregnancy rumours were quickly dismissed by Blinks. However, many were surprised that the BLACKPINK members still found time to visit California, despite just announcing that “BLACKPINK The Movie” will be dropping in August, in celebration of the girl group’s 5th anniversary.
Fans can also look forward to the much anticipated “4+1 Project”, although it’s still unclear what the “+1” in the title means. One thing is certain though, the “+1” isn’t referring to a baby. And no, the fan edited photos from Twitter below aren’t real either.
