Mariah’s Drastic Weight-Loss Measures
Mariah Carey has undergone major surgery to lose weight.
According to a source close to her, the diva (who was previously proud of her curves) has recently decided to take serious action after her weight “skyrocketed”.
The 47-year-old songstress was tired of being body-shamed on social media after her recent tour with Lionel Richie.
Carey, who just days ago was honoured with a handprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, also found it harder dance while carrying a few extra kilograms.
Carey has previously been praised for her weight-loss and fitness. In 2011 she was hailed by the media for losing 10 kilograms in just a few months, after giving birth.
The procedure Carey underwent is called “gastric sleeve surgery” and involves the removal of a large portion of the stomach.
By reducing the stomach to 15% of its size, the patient feels fuller from eating less.
The singer had the surgery a month ago, and is reportedly already seeing a difference.
The source added that Carey is also feeling much better about herself since the surgery.
