AceShowbiz - Kanye West may need to join his brother-in-law Rob Kardashian's newly-started gym session to regain his fit physique. The 42-year-old rapper has been mocked by Twitter users as it seems that he has gained a massive amount of weight.
The hip-hop star was spotted stepping out with his wife Kim Kardashian and three of their four children, North, 6, Saint, 3, and Chicago, 1, for a fancy family dinner in Los Angeles on Sunday, June 30. For the outing, Kanye donned a black crew neck sweatshirt teamed with navy pants, sneakers and sunglasses.
The loose outfit, however, couldn't hide the extra pounds that he has piled on in recent months. After pictures of his Sunday outing went online, people took to Twitter to comment on his bigger size and some of them were not nice.
"Kanye looks like Sherman Klump from The Nutty Professor," one wrote. "Is he wearing a fat suit," another sarcastically asked. Someone else mocked the fashion designer, "Yeezy got bigger t*ttys than his wife." Another compared Kanye's looks to his wife Kim's, "Kim Kardashian is always ready for the camera. Kanye on the other hand."
Kanye admitted in 2018 that he had a weight issue. The "I Love It" hitmaker revealed he had an unpublicized liposuction procedure that factored in his struggle with opiods addiction. "I was drugged the f**k out. I was drugged out. I was on opioids. Two days after I got off opioids, I'm in the hospital. Two days before going to the hospital, I was on opioids. I was addicted to opioids. I had plastic surgery because I was trying to look good for y'all," he said.
He further opened up about his decision to get plastic surgery, "I got liposuction because I didn't want y'all to call me fat like y'all called Rob [Kardashian] at the wedding and made him fly home before me and Kim got married. I didn't want y'all to call me fat so I got liposuction, right? And they gave me opioids, right? And I started taking two of them and then driving to work on the opioids."
Kanye said at the time he took a total of seven pills a day. "Then there was talks in my camp like 'Ye's popping pills. ... Two days later, I'm in the hospital. I was taking two pills a day at the time. When I left the hospital, how many pills do you think I was given? Seven! I went from taking two pills to taking seven. So the reason that I dropped those tweets and everything is because I was drugged the f**k out," he said of his breakdown in 2016.
Kanye said he has since been on medication following his breakdown and hospitalization for his mental health issue.
