Mariah Carey’s dramatic weight loss reportedly came from gastric sleeve surgery.
The singer got the surgery six weeks ago because she felt “extremely insecure about her weight,” a source told Entertainment Tonight.
“She always fluctuates and it makes her upset,” the source told. “She lives in denial about it; she has the tags cut out of clothes, so she can be blissfully unaware of her size.”
The “Hero” singer showed off her new figure in a tight black dress last week at her hand and footprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
Last year, Carey credited her “Mariah’s World” weight loss to a diet of Norwegian salmon and capers.
A rep for Carey did not return a request for comment.
