Just last month, Japanese superstar Ayumi Hamasaki, 41, surprised everyone when she announced the birth of her baby boy. Although the identity of her baby daddy remains a secret, many people believe that it's her rumoured dancer boyfriend, who is 21 years her junior.
And now, she's back at work, practicing for her concert next week.
The singer's almost instantaneous bounce back to form has raised eyebrows among netizens.
Comparing her latest IG pics to her past photos, netizens commented that Ayumi doesn't look like someone who has gone through pregnancy, which further fuelled their suspicion that she had a baby through a surrogate.
The reason they even think that of Ayumi is because she had not shown any signs of pregnancy over the past year even though she was photographed a number of times.
There are also netizens who say that the singer looks "drastically different".
While some argued that she's now “completely unrecognisable” because she has had “too much plastic surgery", others say that Ayumi looks so different because of her "postpartum glow".
