Trina's appearance at the BET Awards 2023 sparked weight gain speculations and rumors that she is pregnant. This is not the first time the rapper has been the target of pregnancy rumors based on her weight. Trina once shut down the rumors that she was pregnant because of her weight gain saying that she was naturally that curvy and could never be 100 pounds.
Trina, as described by XXL, is the "most consistent female rapper of all time." She rose to prominence in 1998 when she appeared on the Trick Daddy single Nann N*gga and since then, she has only gotten more famous and moved forward. In 2013, her single Pull Over was ranked number 27 in their Top 50 Best Rap Songs by Women. A year later, she was included in Billboard's list of the "31 Female Rappers Who Changed Hip-Hop."
She recently gave a power-packed performance of her greatest hits at the BET Awards 2023 after which the social media were flooded with comments about her weight gain and pregnancy speculations. Because she appeared full-figured, many assumed that she might be pregnant. Here's everything to know about Trina's weight gain!

Trina's (@trinarockstarr) appearance has once again sparked weight gain speculations and pregnancy rumors. She recently showed up at the BET Awards 2023 and gave a power-packed performance alongside Trick Daddy. She looked amazing donning a red bodysuit as she sang her greatest hits and she had every audience bopping their heads along during her performance. It was a great moment that did not last for long.
Because soon after the performance was over, people began discussing the rapper's body and making comments about her weight gain on social media. Many seemed to think that she might be pregnant in 2023 because she supposedly looked that way. It's not the first time people have made such kinds of pregnancy speculations about her based on her weight. This did not sit well with her fans who jumped to her defense against these intrusive and repetitive speculations.
They slammed the baseless rumors saying that Trina could have just gained a little weight and it's illogical to conclude that she is pregnant based on her weight since she has looked that way for a while. After all, there were similar pregnancy rumors and weight gain speculations following her appearance at the BET Awards 2021 where she didn't look much different than she does now. And turned out that she was not pregnant at the time.

The Here We Go singer's fans are p*ssed that people are still speculating that she is pregnant and commenting on her weight gain after they have proven to be wrong about the same assumptions before. One of her fans wrote that people are so used to seeing all the fake bodies prancing around that when a real one shows up, they begin to wonder if she is just thick or pregnant. Another slammed the pregnancy rumors saying that Trina could just be bloated or she could just have undergone a little weight gain plus, she has been looking thick for quite a while.
Trina Had Gotten Tired of Her Weight Gain and Pregnancy Speculations More Than a Decade Ago!
While rapper Trina has not responded to the comments about her weight gain and her looking pregnant and her fans have largely defended her against those, she has not always maintained silence about people making those comments on her body. These kinds of speculations have been going on for way too long, since more than a decade ago, and about a decade ago, she hit back at people making these baseless claims.
In 2011, when the rumors that she was pregnant surfaced after she appeared a little bigger while filming a video for Hit It Right, she released a statement where she said that she was never going to be 100 pounds because she doesn't do diet pills or any other crash diets and she was always going to be a woman with curves. She also said that every woman is not supposed to look like a broomstick and that she was comfortable in her own skin with all her curves and assets.

That decade-old statement should give people an idea of how Trina feels about the comments on her weight gain and pregnancy rumors. They should stop making any speculations about her body based on her weight because she does not like that and also because she has had a fuller figure for quite a while and it's stupid to think she's pregnant every time she makes a public appearance.
In an interview, talking about her relationship with weight, Trina said that she used to be skinny and that she and the scale used to be great friends until she turned 35 after which her relationships and being a mom to two teenagers triggered her weight gain. She revealed that she tried to lose weight when she saw herself look big on the television and when the things in her closet stopped fitting her but her weight loss did not last for the long run.
