Post Malone says he’s not taking drugs and is in the shape of his life after fans expressed concern for the musician’s health over his recent dramatic weight loss.
The “Circles” hitmaker has been spotted sporting a noticeably slimmer figure in recent months, leading to comments from fans worried about his health. Some shared footage of his recent performances suggesting the rapid weight loss could be due to a sudden illness or even drug addiction.

Post Malone welcomed his first child, a daughter, with his fiancée in May 2022. The 27-year-old rapper has kept the details surrounding his daughter and her mother extremely private. He broke the news of her arrival in the most nonchalant way possible, just weeks after announcing he was expecting a child.
“I woke up at 2:30 in the afternoon, I went and I kissed my baby girl and then I went to play some video games,” Post Malone said during an appearance on The Howard Stern Show, last June.
