Mariah Carey has undergone gastric sleeve surgery. According to reports, the singer made the decision after being body-shamed. She was unable to handle the harsh critiques since her weight gain. The procedure took place in Beverly Hills by one of the country’s best surgeons.
“Mariah has always been proud of her curves, but this summer, as her Caesars Palace residency came to a close, and then she went on tour with Lionel Richie, she noticed it became harder to dance, and she was getting a lot more criticism online from body shamers.”
Reports also reveal that the cause of her weight gain is due to “late-night eating and cocktails after shows with current boyfriend and back-up dancer Bryan Tanaka.”
Since the surgery, she’s already seeing results and is feeling much better.
