This morning Ashlee Simpson appeared on Today to perform a song from her new album Bittersweet World. Matt Lauer discussed her engagement to Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz and asked her about all those pregnancy rumors that Pete has been publicly denying, but that the celeb weeklies insist are true. Ashlee tried to play it off, but didn't really give a full denial, saying that "only time will tell with that." She tried to dress her belly down by wearing very loud pants, a slimming black top, and an opened blazer, but thanks to screen caps, we're able to get a look at her tummy, after the jump.


Lookit, I'm not one of those people that's like, "Is she pregnant or did she just eat a bagel?" I'm sensitive about body issues and if someone is a little bloated or something, it's pretty asshole-ish to assume they're pregnant. But these shots are sorta convincing.
