“Empire” star Gabourey Sidibe shocked fans with her shrinking body shape. In a new interview, Sidibe has revealed she underwent weight loss surgery. The 33-year-old had laparoscopic bariatric surgery last May, and in her new book “This Is Just My Face: Try Not To Stare” she opens up about battling bulimia as a child and then being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.
Despite her incredible weight loss, the “Precious” star won’t say exactly the amount of weight that she has lost. ‘That’s personal to me,’ the Precious star told People. Sidibe also believes surgery was the right choice for her. “I was in a war with my body,” the actress said.
