Remember when National Enquirer did this unjustified “death”-loaded article on Lisa Marie Presley’s weight gain? Take a look here! Well this week, they are targeting no other than Mariah Carey.
Has Mariah Carey turned herself into a foodaholic – just a few calories away from hitting a deadly high of 200 pounds?
â€œMariah looks like she has really let herself go,â€ revealed a source close to the singer.
Mariah has packed on a whopping 57 pounds just in the last two years, says a concerned source. And her ballooning weight – now approaching an all-time high of 192 pounds – has brought her to the brink of life-threatening medical problems, warns an expert. But pals say the hardworking diva is under tremendous stress and is resorting to food binges to relieve her frustrations.
â€œTurning 40 was a big thing for Mariah, and she’s been trying repeatedly to get pregnant. Combined, the two things have hit like a one-two punch and stresses her out. She is turning to food for comfort.â€
To make matters worse, Nick Cannon is sending the wrong message – telling Mariah there’s â€œjust more of her to love.â€
For the past several weeks, Mariah – who turned 41 in March – has been dropping hints she may be pregnant.
â€œMariah’s been coy about the whole pregnancy thing right now to deflect attention from her weight gain,â€ said the close source. â€œShe doesn’t want to have to address it. And Nick keeps telling her how beautiful she looks.â€
When Mariah and Nick got married, she weighed 135 pounds. But over the past two years, Mariah has been cooking mac & cheese, fried chicken, pizzas, et cetera. â€œNick has even suggested that her food is so good, she should think about writing a cookbook.â€
Where she once was rumored to have undergone liposuction (in the fall of 2008), now â€œshe has turned to high-calorie late-night snacking and she’s at her heaviest weight ever. Her attitude is not to fight the weight gain, but just to go with it.â€
LOL or… possibly true… or plain sad?
