star Nicole 'Snooki
' Polizzi is reportedly three months' pregnant.
The 24-year-old earlier this month denied rumours that she is expecting a baby
with boyfriend Jionni LaValle, but it has since been alleged that MTV is actively hiding the development out of fear that viewers will snub her upcoming spinoff
with Jenni 'JWoww' Farley.
"MTV went into crisis mode after they found out," a source told Page Six
. "They're trying to hide it because it would greatly affect the creative direction of the show."
The publication also claims that Polizzi has made plans to profit from her transition into motherhood and become "the next Kourtney Kardashian".
Appearing on Good Morning America
at the beginning of February, Polizzi clarified: "I definitely do want kids, but I'm not pregnant. Being pregnant should be a real thing and a happy thing, and I'm not."
Representatives for MTV and Polizzi have declined to comment on the story. > Jersey Shore star Snooki: 'I've cut down on my drinking'
