All the singer wanted for Christ­mas was to slim down, stat!

NW - - News In A Flash -

She’s long yo-yoed with her weight, but a hero has fi­nally come along to help Mariah Carey beat her bat­tle with the bulge once and for all – her sur­geon!

Uh-huh, the mum-of-two, 47, has ap­par­ently had a sneaky gas­tric sleeve put in to help her slim down – and stay that way.

“[She] un­der­went the pro­ce­dure about a month ago. She is al­ready see­ing some good re­sults, and she feels a lot bet­ter,” a source re­cently re­vealed of Mimi’s de­ci­sion to un­dergo the surgery, which re­moves part of the stom­ach so that the pa­tient feels fuller, quicker.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, strug­gling to dance on stage and cruel taunts about her weight led the diva to bite the bul­let and have the surgery.

“She’s happy with this new chap­ter in her life,” an­other source tells En­ter­tain­ment Tonight, adding that Mariah had be­come dis­cour­aged by end­less di­et­ing.

“She al­ways fluc­tu­ates and it makes her up­set, but it’s hard for her to man­age.”

Mean­while, a bang­ing new bod isn’t the only change in Mimi’s life. She re­cently dumped her long­time man­ager Stella Bu­lochnikov – and ap­par­ently it was in favour of her toy­boy Bryan Tanaka!

“Bryan be­lieves that he should be the one run­ning Mariah’s day-to-day life,” a pal says of her back-up dancer beau.

In­deed, Bryan was sup­pos­edly the driv­ing force be­hind Stella getting the boot and had been plot­ting her exit for ages!

While Mariah’s camp have shot down the claims, pals think Bryan, 34, is hardly man­ager ma­te­rial.

“This is a full-on Brit­ney-andKevin Fed­er­line sit­u­a­tion,” says the pal. “He has ma­nip­u­lated the sit­u­a­tion to take over her life and push out ev­ery­one else, and Mariah just can’t see it. He knows noth­ing about man­ag­ing an iconic artist.”

THEN From flab in July... ... to fab ear­lier this month, fol­low­ing her gas­tric sleeve op NOW
