Mrs Fernandez-Versini reveals that the reason for her weight loss is due to grief over her father-in-law’s death.
We love it when stars get feisty, and our girl Cheryl has stood up for herself in the best way ever, by calling out the body shaming trolls on Instagram. Go on, Mrs Fernandez-Versini!
Someone commented on a photo of Cheryl on Instagram calling her a “bag of bones” after she was pictured looking thinner lately. Unfortunately, it seems the weight loss was caused by stress over the recent death of her father in law, and Cheryl spoke out to defend herself.
She posted, “I am so sick and tired of it being ok to call somebody too thin or a ‘bag of bones’. I would never dream of calling somebody too fat and that they should maybe cut down on their food intake? What is the difference? You have no idea what I have been through. Just losing my father in law v recently and everything that comes with that.
“Not that I am or should justify myself to anyone. I’m so f sick of people thinking it’s ok to be mean or body shame anyone. And it’s woman on woman. Have some respect and maybe think there may be reasons why before opening your mouth please."
Cheryl also added that being slight runs in her family, “I am just tired of the ignorance...At some point it’s just enough. Some people are naturally thin. My mother is all of 4’11 and six stone something. And is incredible healthy and happy.” [sic]
Cheryl has been there for her husband Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini after the recent death of his father and he treated her to a surprise trip to Italy for her birthday. Best couple ever? We think so.
