Beyonce cancels show in Belgium, cites dehydration, exhaustion

Beyonce has canceled a show in Belgium, citing dehydration and exhaustion as  rumors of a second pregnancy continue to swirl around the pop diva.

The singer, 31, was advised by doctors to rest and will be missing her Tuesday show at Sportpaleis in Antwerp. The show will be get another date and tickets can be reused on the rescheduled day, her publicist told the Associated Press in a statement.

Beyonce, who launched the powerhouse "The Mrs. Carter Show" world tour last month in Belgrade, Serbia, is also waiting on word from doctors to decide whether she'll appear at her second Antwerp show Wednesday at the same arena. The tour is set to wrap up on Aug. 5 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

On Monday, reports from music insiders picked up steam, alleging that Bey could be expecting her second child with rapper Jay-Z, her husband of five years. The superstar has spoken publicly about expanding her family and giving her 15-month-old daughter Blue Ivy "some company;" however, none of the reports have been confirmed. Instead, her reps have been trying to shut down the rumor mill.

A source also told People that Bey was "planning for another baby after her tour is over and things calm down just a bit," while TMZ reports that the pregnancy rumors have been circulating for weeks and the dehydration and exhaustion excuse is "commonly known in the entertainment industry as 'What you tell the media when you don't want to tell the truth.' "

Whether or not she's pregnant, sounds like nothing is calming down in the world of Mrs. Carter any time soon.
