Female rapper Azealia Banks is trending this morning - with rumors that she may be pregnant.

Azealia was in Europe yesterday, as she made a busty appearance in white top and pencil skirt at the Brixton Electric Nightclub in London.

But it wasn't just her outfit, or her music that got her trending. It was her belly.

There have been rumors for weeks on social media that Azealia is pregnant. And the pics that were released from last night's performance appear to confirm the rumors.

Azealia has been in the news lately as she is in the middle of a high stakes legal battle, between Elon Musk - the founder of Tesla - and the Securities & Exchange Commission.

Azealia made extraordinary claims about Elon's mental state. And the US district court of northern California has subpoenaed her to testify in the ongoing lawsuit against Elon by a group of the company’s shareholders.


Azealia was in the news last week when she sparked some more controversy when she made offensive comments about the Irish and Irish women after an encounter on an airplane. She went on to describe Irish people as "a bunch of prideful inbred leprechauns who have ZERO global influence."

Since her social media rant, an Irish lawyer responded to her words with a statement in which he asserted that Banks' words are punishable by law apparently, explaining that anything deemed to be hate speech on social media is a crime.

"Hi #azeliabanks [sic] in light of your recent comments on #instagram about Irish women & Irish people generally, perhaps I can introduce you to the #CommunicationsAct2003 (s127) before you land in England," said Tomas McGarvey.

According to McGarvey, Section 127 of the UK's Communications Act of 2003 says that it's an offense to "send a message that is grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character over public electronic communications network."

Banks took to Instagram to address Mcgarvey's new revelation and accused the threat to be spurred form racism, adding that if her actions are punishable by law, then so are the responses that she's gotten.
