Selena Gomez isn’t “wasting away,” despite a bogus new report alleging she’s starving herself “to be a size zero.” The article claims the singer’s loved ones are worried about her supposed extreme weight loss, but the story is completely inaccurate. Gossip Cop can exclusively set the record straight.
A so-called “source” tells OK!, “Her waist is teeny and she’s dropped at least two dress sizes recently, everyone’s worried. She barely touches her meals and works out like a fiend every day, often fitting two or three sessions into one day.” The outlet’s questionable insider adds, “She loves looking skinny but says she’s not reached her goal yet and is continuing to diet the whole time. It’s typical of her addictive personality, once she gets onto a cycle like this she’s unable to stop.”
However, Gomez doesn’t appear to be any thinner than normal based on recent photos of the singer on set of Woody Allen’s upcoming movie. Additionally, Gomez’s health issues also play a role in her physical appearance, as weight loss is one of the side effects of lupus. Of course, the singer also recently underwent a kidney transplant. Even if Gomez has dropped a few pounds as of late, it’s certainly not due to over-rigorous exercise and dieting, as the site asserts.
Regardless, Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Gomez, who exclusively assures us the magazine’s report is completely “false.” We’re told the singer isn’t obsessed with losing weight, nor are her friends and family concerned she’s striving to become dangerously thin. This is simply a non-issue. Of course, we’re not surprised by the tabloid’s phony article.
Gossip Cop recently busted OK! for making up a story about The Weeknd “creating a rift” between Gomez and her family, which isn’t at all the case. Shortly before that nonsense, we called out the magazine for wrongly alleging Gomez was caught kissing a “mystery man.” There was no truth to either of those articles, and the publication’s latest one is equally baseless.
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
