Mariah Carey is known for her diva-like behavior, glittering bodysuits, world-class productions, and, last but not least, for always being camera ready.

So when fans caught a glimpse of some less-than-flattering photos of her, they were shocked.

According to In Touch Weekly, some critics called Carey a “big fat lump” and “a sausage encased in glitter.” Some said they felt “sorry for those dancers who have to pick her up.”


In September, Carey and then-fiancé James Packer called off their engagement. Before her body-shaming nightmare, Carey released a song about the billionaire mogul. Packer remained relatively quiet about the breakup until recent weeks, when he said their relationship was “a mistake.”

But now, Carey isn’t the only one getting publicly body-shamed. According to the Daily Mail, Packer has gained some weight.

Although Packer has only sung Carey’s praises — aside from that “mistake” comment — there’s no public bad blood between the pair. Except, of course, when it comes to the media’s harsh headlines.
