Beyonce Answers Abandonment Rumors

Published by PETA.

When we got calls about rumors that Beyoncé supposedly abandoned her dog Munchie at the offices of her record company, we suspected that the rumor mill wasn’t quite getting the story straight. So, we contacted Beyoncé’s people.

We’ve had an up and down relationship with the Dreamgirl over her past fur-wearing, but lately it’s been on the ups, as she hasn’t been seen in fur the past two winters. Today, we were happy to learn from Beyoncé’s rep that—as we expected—the Munchie tale is far from the truth and that the dog hasn’t even been to the record company’s offices in months.

The rep calls Munchie a pampered pooch whom everyone adores and says that Beyoncé and her cousin (the pup’s main caretaker) are still crazy in love with him. Because they travel quite a bit, Munchie is usually left with family or friends—never at the record company.

We are glad to hear that Beyoncé isn’t leaving her “baby boy” behind, and we’re certainly happy to hear that Munchie is “irreplaceable” to his guardians.
