Fans fearful that Post Malone could also be shedding pounds because he’s abusing drugs and alcohol may very well be those who’re “Paranoid.”
The 27-year-old singer, who’s in recovery for alcoholism, has noticeably shed several kilos. A recent video of him, wearing a T-shirt and shorts onstage in Australia, has some fans fearful that illness and even addiction may very well be the cause.
“Man’s lost hella weight,” one commenter responded to a distinct clip, with one other agreeing, “Is it me or is he getting skinnier.”
But Malone, whose real name is Austin Post, is definitely doing quite well, a source told TMZ on Tuesday. They claimed he began his weight reduction journey to slim down for a movie role but has been maintaining a weight loss program and exercise routine ever since.
Malone has been on tour since September and running across the stage throughout his 90-minute set, which they are saying is also helping to maintain the burden off.
In a comment on an Instagram video, his dad, Wealthy Post, even assured fans who fearful about Malone that his son is the “healthiest he’s been in years! Mentally and physically.”
The Post has contacted a representative for Malone for comment.

Malone faced the same situation in 2020 when fans feared for his health after he was seen falling onstage while belting “I Fall Apart” in a viral video.
“I’m not on drugs and I feel one of the best I’ve ever f—king felt in my life,” he told concertgoers in Los Angeles. “And that’s why I can bust my ass for these shows, and f—king fall on the ground, and do all that fun s—t.”
The Grammy-nominated “Circles” singer was hospitalized in September 2022 after suffering a nasty onstage fall every week prior during a show in St. Louis.
Fan-captured footage showed Malone walking down a ramp when he stepped right into a hole that wasn’t covered. He quickly fell to the stage and may very well be heard moaning in pain.

He apologized profusely for canceling a subsequent Boston concert an hour before it was imagined to start but told fans that he was “having a really difficult time respiration, and there’s like a stabbing pain at any time when I breathe or move.”
Malone and his fiancé, whose identity he keeps under wraps for privacy reasons, welcomed their first daughter around May 2022.
