Mariah’s se­cret weight-loss surgery

Singer takes dras­tic mea­sure to ‘feel sexy again’

Heat (UK) - - This Week - KATIE HOL­LOWAY

It seems that all Mariah Carey wants for Christ­mas is a smaller waist­line (yes, we went there) – so, given that the singer only has a few weeks to lose weight, she’s had a gas­tric sleeve fit­ted.

As heat told you ear­lier this year, Mimi had gained 4st thanks to her (ac­tu­ally quite ap­peal­ing­sound­ing) wine and mash potato diet, tak­ing her to 13st. But af­ter grow­ing tired of on­line abuse about her fuller fig­ure, she re­port­edly un­der­went the op­er­a­tion last month, which re­stricts the amount you can eat.

“She would stay up late at night read­ing com­ments about her­self on­line while tuck­ing into desserts for com­fort, and she knew she had to take ac­tion,” heat’s in­sider says. “She couldn’t give up her food when she was feel­ing this mis­er­able. She wanted to give her­self a break and a con­fi­dence boost to get through the hard times she’s been hav­ing.”

But Mimi’s not just re­ly­ing on med­i­cal help, as the booze and pota­toes seem to be off the menu for the time be­ing. “Mariah’s started a full body-blitz pro­gramme to make her­self feel sexy while she tries to get back on top,” our source ex­plains. “She’s hired a top LA di­eti­cian, a new trainer, and or­dered a gym to be in­stalled in her Hol­ly­wood home.” If all goes to plan, we’ll be see­ing the singer in some sexy fes­tive out­fits, as she’s al­ready lost over 2st.

“She had got to a point when none of her stage out­fits fit­ted her any more. They are all cus­tom­made, but Mariah al­ways says she’s a size smaller than she re­ally is, so when the dresses ar­rive, she’s al­ways spilling out of them,” our source adds. “For her Christ­mas tour, she’s got a very tight fes­tive red rom­per she wanted to wear, but dur­ing re­hearsals she couldn’t even get it on.”
