Friends and family are reportedly “concerned” and “confused” at the latest pictures which show the former pop star reclining in a deckchair at the 5-star resort – possibly too weak to sit upright in the scorching sun – as well as getting into a taxi and carrying a bag.
Appearing frail and possibly about to buckle under the weight of the atmosphere, the much criticised mother of two was lambasted in the media in 2009 after gaining noticeable weight following the disintegration of her marriage to the former sports star.
Recent unconfirmed rumours she’s become addicted to a dangerous, cult-like 100 calorie a day diet began to circulate shortly after the pictures first surfaced.
Speaking to The Shoe Horn from his practice in London’s Mayfair, Dr Rupert Parish, who’s seen many examples of people with eating disorders, was asked to comment on the newly published pictures.
Unwilling to draw any conclusions, the York-born general practitioner offered some unnerving analysis:
“Eating disorders can become major health problems for some people, including celebrities…”
We only hope the media’s seeming obsession with the much scrutinised single mother’s weight problems won’t lead to another rapid ballooning and hospitalisation as she rebounds from the criticism.
