Dancehall entertainer Spice has revealed that she is not pregnant.

Spice set tongues wagging this week when she posted an image on Instagram with what appeared to be a baby bump.

The photo set off a frenzy on social media with fans and entertainers congratulating the 40-year-old for what would have been her third child.

However, many were not convinced saying the photo appeared to be a publicity stunt.

It appears the naysayers were right.

Speaking during an emotional Instagram Live session on Friday morning, Spice revealed the photo was a metaphor.

Explaining to her fans, Spice said the image was intended to represent her rebirth after a medical scare following surgery in the Dominican Republic last October.

Spice revealed her midriff during the Live session, showing a scar. She said that’s where she’s now fully healed from surgery last year.

“I never said I was pregnant. I said God has been good to me and that photo is just me celebrating my second chance at life,” said Spice during the session.

Spice went on to apologise to those who may have been offended by the initial social media post.
