MAG: Selma Blair is “Scary Skinny,” Weighs “90 lbs.”

Truth rating: 0

By Michael Lewittes


“SCARY-SKINNY ALERT!” blares a sensationalized headline from Star about Selma Blair.

Citing an invasive paparazzi photo of the actress walking her baby son sans bra, the mag says Blair looks “skeletal” and “incredibly thin,” with a “frighteningly prominent” ribcage.

According to the tabloid, “She’s been under tremendous stress since separating from Jason Bleick but is refusing to acknowledge her increasingly frail, gaunt figure.”

A so-called “friend” of the Cruel Intentions star tells the tab, “She’s scary-skinny right now. Her friends and family are really worried, but she is in denial.”

The purported pal alleges, “She’s so sickly looking, she must weight about 90 lbs.”

Star’s “source” claims that after Blair’s reported split from Bleick, “She stopped taking care of her appearance and health.”

Of course, this is the same publication that claimed Miley Cyrus’ family was staging a weight intervention, and that Angelina Jolie had plummeted to 98 lbs. in a “health crisis.”

Much like those previous tales, this story is completely inaccurate.

A rep for Blair tells Gossip Cop, “She is not 90 pounds, and she is fine.”
