The American rapper reassures fans about his well-being and attributes weight loss to a healthier lifestyle.
American rapper, singer, and songwriter, Austin Richard Post, better known as Post Malone, has been at the center of recent controversies and rumors regarding his health. The 27-year-old musician has experienced a meteoric rise to fame since the release of his debut single, White Iverson, in 2015. However, a recent video of Post Malone appearing emaciated, malnourished, and seemingly disoriented has caused fans to worry about his well-being.
In the past, Post Malone has admitted to using drugs, but he claims to have given them up. The recent speculation about his health has led some fans to fear that he may be relapsing. To address these concerns, Post Malone posted a heartfelt message on his official Instagram account on April 28, 2023.
The rapper reassured fans, stating, “I’m not doing drugs, I’ve had a lot of people ask me about my weight loss and I’d suppose, performance on stage.” He attributed his weight loss to healthier choices, explaining that he gave up soda and started eating better. “I guess dad life kicked in, and I decided to…be around for a long time for this little angel.” Post Malone also mentioned that he’s been spending time in the studio working on new music, adding, “My brain is in a super dope place, and I’m the happiest I’ve been in a long time.”

Despite Post Malone’s reassurances, some fans remain convinced that he has relapsed and is using opioids or methamphetamine. These drugs are known to cause weight loss, as they suppress appetite and increase metabolism. It is plausible that fans are associating Post Malone’s sudden weight loss with drug use, given the well-documented effects of these substances.
However, the majority of fans continue to support Post Malone, believing that he is simply exhausted from touring and committed to a healthier lifestyle. As fans await new music from the rapper, they also hope that he remains focused on his well-being and continues to share his journey with them.
