Jimmy Jam's Weight Loss: Fans Suspect He Underwent Surgery to Lose Weight!
Jimmy Jam has enjoyed a long career in music with his buddy Terry Lewis. But gone are those days when he used to be celebrated and talked about for his music, now he makes news for the changes in his weight, other than the recent news of him and Terry Lewis getting inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Just two years ago, when he made headlines for his drastic weight loss. Though he never revealed it, his wife reportedly said that he had lost 25 pounds.
We were used to seeing Jimmy Jam a certain way, a certain size, a certain weight. But that was all disrupted in 2019 when he showed up at an event looking like half a man of his former self. The weight loss was so drastic and not something that happened gradually so fans could ease themselves into his new looks after the massive and quick transformation.
It was like one day, he was fat and the next, he was not. Jimmy Jam really took everyone's breath away when he attended an event with his wife Lisa Padilla at the Clive Davis' pre-Grammy party in February 2019, with his dramatic weight loss. It was just a few months ago that he walked the red carpet along with his daughter Bella Harris looking the way he always looked, what fans now say was his original weight.
But when he walked into the party, Jimmy Jam was a different man, and a few months after that, he shocked everyone again with yet another weight loss when he showed up at Elton John's Oscar party looking even thinner than he did at the pre-Grammy party. He really was just half of what he used to be previously. It was concerning because none of these changes happened gradually. Fans never knew to expect this.
They started worrying about the musician because he never acknowledged his weight loss and never told the cause of his drastic transformation. They began to think that he must be ill with some kind of serious disease which might be causing him to lose weight so rapidly.
Jimmy Jam's fellow musician Keith Sweat even posted on his official Facebook page about his weight loss transformation. Many fans commented on the post. And while some people thought that Jimmy looked different and better than how he used to look, the majority of the fans expressed their concern for him. They were troubled by his drastic change and hoped he was alright.
Even then, Jimmy Jam continued to maintain silence about his weight loss and did nothing to ease the concern of his fans. Time went on and he was fine. He didn't appear to have any health problems. Fans realized that he was not down with any disease and started to wonder how was it possible to lose so much weight. Then, they began to speculate that he must have undergone weight loss surgery which must have changed him dramatically within a span of a few months.
But that speculation of Jimmy Jam having undergone weight loss surgery was put to rest when his wife Lisa revealed in a press interview that he had lost 25 pounds after months of rigorous diet and intense workout schedule. He must have really committed to the whole thing.
And when he finally broke the silence about his weight loss, he said that he felt the need to lose weight for his health as he wanted to be healthy. He also revealed that it was difficult but worthwhile. Since then, he has continued to adhere to his meal plans and exercise routine. He has, thus, lost a lot of weight since two years ago.
