He had to come out and stop the rumours. This was his response,
“I didn’t have any plastic surgery. I’m not sick, it’s called running and eating better! You understand? I’m in my 30s now. All these ridiculous stuff that I read “He’s sick, he’s on drugs”, get a life! I just changed how I ate and began to run.”
