Nicki Minaj dismissed internet rumors that she is pregnant with her second child.

The rumors started after Nicki recently performed at the Essence Festival in New Orleans.

The rapper was greeted by a huge crowd who turned out to be watching her as she arrived at a cafe for a meet and greet in London. The line wrapped around the block.

The Barbie was in London, England, where she headlined the Wireless Music Festival on Sunday, July 10.

While answering questions on Instagram Live prior to the concert, a fan asked, “Are you pregnant?”

Nicki replied:

“Am I pregnant? Oh, I wanted to tweet this: I’m not fat, you guys, I’m pregnant. Oh wait. Did I say it wrong? I’m sorry. I think I said it wrong. I wanted to say I I’m not pregnant, I’m fat. But thanks guys for all the congratulations.”

Nicki’s husband, Kenneth Petty, was unable to make the trip to London with her because he was on home custody in Calabasas, California.

Petty pleaded guilty to failing to register as a sex offender when he moved to the West Coast from New York.

He was sentenced to one year of house arrest, followed by three years of probation last week.

Petty spent four years in prison in 1995 after pleading guilty to the attempted rape of a 16-year-old girl.

Nicki and Kenneth have a toddler son nicknamed “Papa Bear.”
