Sam Smith has been very vocal about his struggles as a child.
Not only has he revealed that he had problems with sexual identity as a boy, but he’s revealed his struggles with weight as well. On Jameela Jamil’s new Instagram show, “I Weigh,” Smith shares that he once had liposuction.
“At the time, I think I was very happy about it.”
He then adds:
“It didn’t really change anything. I think I put the weight back on in two weeks because I haven’t figured out my relationship with food, so it didn’t really change anything. But being 12 years old and having liposuction on your chest is quite a big deal.”
Smith was just 12-years old at the time of the surgery. However, after being teased about his weight, he says it was a decision that made him feel good about himself.
Now at the age of 26-years-old, Smith is finally starting to be more accepting of his body image. On Instagram, the singer danced in a mirror, after just getting off of a flight. “Feeling bloated and gross after my flight so thought I’d post a mirror selfie of my sexy bloated boobies coz we are friends. Finally,” he wrote as the caption.
