She’s a little self-conscious about her weight.
Mariah Carey reportedly went under the knife for a gastric sleeve surgery after sources say she was feeling a little uncomfortable with her weight. Surely a superstar like Mariah feels a lot of pressure to stay slim and look good, but she was never exactly “fat.” We question the move when she probably could have just got a trainer and went hard for a couple of months to get in shape.
She showed off a slimmer figure while being honored at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood last week. According to ET, she had the surgery about six weeks ago. Trolls online had been ripping her weight, and she allegedly became extremely insecure about her body following the stream of negative comments.
Gastric sleeve surgery decreases the size of the stomach so that patients eat less and lose weight quickly. “She always fluctuates and it makes her upset,” the source says. “She lives in denial about it; she has the tags cut out of clothes, so she can be blissfully unaware of her size.”

On her show, Mariah’s World, she had claimed her weight loss was due to only eating Norwegian salmon and capers.
Guess she needed drastic measures so she could slim down for her most important season: Christmas. That’s her money season.
The Grammy winning songstress is rumored to be starting a new residency at the Venetian Las Vegas in 2018.
