Friends close to the original American Idol are worried about the star’s recent and drastic weight loss. Clarkson has reportedly lost 60 pounds in the span of mere months and the loss has been impacting her health in a negative way. A source close to Clarkson revealed that the “She’s tired all the time, complaining of stomach issues and even getting dizzy spells. It’s very scary.”
This is not the first time Clarkson’s weight has been a source of talk. In 2018, Clarkson disclosed that she suffered from an autoimmune disease. The thyroid disorder was what led to her weight loss, not exercise.
Clarkson has spoken out against the media’s obsession with her body. “The media has always been obsessed with [my size]. And I have felt conflicted over the years. Do you address it? Do you talk about it? Because then you just add to the noise,” Clarkson said in a 2017 interview with Daily Mail.
“But people like me [need] to talk about it, so I don’t really mind carrying that flag. I love that people come up to me and say: ‘Because you are comfortable in your skin, you have made me more comfortable in mine.’ That’s the best compliment ever.”
