Naya Rivera has come under fire from haters claiming her naked pregnancy pics purposefully came out on the same day Kim Kardashian’s did in order to steal the spotlight away from her rival. But she says it’s just one big coincidence and she has proof!
Naya Rivera is slamming everyone who thinks that her naked pregnancy photo shoot for Yahoo! was timed to steal the thunder away from Kim Kardashian. The 28-year-old Glee star took to Twitter on Aug. 11 and said it’s “awful” anyone would assume she would even think to do something like that and said media outlets are trying to “make something out of nothing.” To hear more about Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy, head over to iTunes and download the latest HollywoodLife podcast for free!
“I chose to share pregnancy photos because I think this is a very beautiful and special time in my life,” Naya wrote on Twitter Aug. 11. “Media outlets know that when you give your photos and an interview to run a story you never get a choice as to when it runs. So trying to make something out of nothing based on stupid assumptions is awful. Such a shame. Especially when it comes to a woman and her beautiful pregnancy journey. Instead of creating non-existent drama the media should be celebrating all the beautiful soon-to-be mamas.” We have to agree with Naya, she had absolutely no control over when Yahoo would release those pics. She didn’t even post any of the naked pics to her Instagram the day Kim posted hers on social media.
Kim’s photo was to put to rest the rumors swirling that she’s faking her pregnancy: “First they say I’m too skinny so I have to be faking it … Now they say I’m too big so I have to be faking it … SMH! Some days I’m photographed before I eat & look smaller, some days I’ve just eaten & I look bigger. It’s all a part of the process,” she also added. “I think you all know me well enough to know I would document the process if I got a surrogate. Everyone’s body is different, every pregnancy is very different! I’ve learned to love my body at every stage! I’m going to get even bigger & that’s beautiful too! I’m blessed to even be pregnant & even luckier to not have preeclampsia as far as I know, so I don’t have the swelling issue this time! They also say your body carries a boy different than a girl! Whatever the case may be I’m grateful to God for this miracle & no matter what rumors or comments you throw my way this time they truly don’t affect me!”
HollywoodLifers, do you think Naya’s pics were released to compete with Kim’s pregnancy pics?
