Kingston, Jamaica: - Recently, rumours have been circulating that Ce'Cile is pregnant, and it has also rumoured that she is pregnant for Bounty Killer. Ce'Cile has decided to make a statement to clear up all gossip once and for all.
"No, I am not pregnant, I was never pregnant and I have never been romantically involved with Bounty Killer nor have I ever said that I was."
The rumour started when Ce'Cile decided to test just how rumours can start, due to rumours that had been spread about the artiste in the past.
"It's amazing how things can get out of hand. On Friday June 1st, I appeared on Hype TV's Up & Live to premiere my new video Goody. Anju Val (Hype TV VJ) had mentioned rumours about me having had breast implants. Amused by this new rumour, I remarked that I am never sure how these rumours get started but am intrigued by them. Jokingly, I said to Anju Val that we should start our own rumour and see how far it gets. On live TV, I said, while laughing 'OK Anju, let us say that I am pregnant for you'. It still amazes me that even though I actually said that we were joking about it, people ran with it.
"As for Bounty's involvement, I'm not quite sure why his name came up, think we were seen together at an event, and probably because people now thought I was pregnant, they were looking for the baby daddy, so now it's Bounty's baby. I'm still in shock at how this has gotten out of hand".
On September 14, The Jamaica Star printed an article where Ce'Cile denies the pregnancy rumour, however, they mistakenly had her quoted as saying that she started the rumour about her being pregnant for Bounty Killer.
"The rumours don't upset me, people will always say things about people in the public eye, but the fact that I was now being made to look like I started a rumour about being pregnant for Bounty for publicity really upsets me." - Ce'Cile
The Star has since printed an apology (September 20) where they explained that Ce'Cile was misquoted.
"I'm glad that they have apologized. Not sure how many people will read it, but at least they made the gesture. I just want to put this behind me and focus on my work. But I did prove my point. Rumours can be started very easily. People want to talk about people, especially artistes, and they will pick the words that they want to use to create a sensational story"
Ce'Cile is now back in Jamaica since completing her Japan tour promoting her latest album Bad Gyal on the Japanese AVEX label. She will next perform in Jamaica at Curefest on October 14 at the Trelawny Multi Purpose Stadium.
