Chris Brown has been working on his new music nonstop since getting released from jail on June 2. Even though the singer gained weight while he was in jail, he’s not worried about losing the pounds anytime soon, a source EXCLUSIVELY reveals to HollywoodLife.com.
Chris Brown, 25, can’t be worried about dropping the 20-ish pounds he packed on during his jail stint right now. The singer is currently pulling all-nighters in the recording studio to try and release his next album, X, by the end of the year! Chris is way more focused on perfecting his comeback album than his six-pack abs right now, a source reveals to us.
Chris Brown’s Health: Why He’s Putting Music Before His Well-Being
Most celebs freak out over weight gain, but not Chris.
“Chris is all about his music, and that keg he’s holding onto will fall off in due time,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He doesn’t care about that right now, music and the studio are first. He knows his health is important, but right now he doesn’t have time for the gym. The studio is where his heart is right now.”
Considering how much work Chris is putting into X, we can’t wait to hear it! While Chris isn’t hitting the gym all the time, he IS eating a bit better. “He’s not in jail anymore and being fed like a pig for the slaughter. He’s eating healthy and that’s all he’s doing now. It’s one step at a time,” our source reveals. Chris knows fans are one the edge of their seats for new music — and so that’s where his focus is.
“He’s real mad himself because he knows he disappointed his fans by keep pushing X back. So instead of trying to push his stomach in, he’s trying to push X out, and that’s where his total focus is,” our source explains. “Karrueche is there supporting him and loving all the extra Chris that she’s putting her arms around.”
Chris Brown: Singer ‘Jokes’ About His Weight Gain
Chris actually laughs about his bigger figure. “Chris knows he’s gained about a good 20 pounds and jokes that he can’t fit into most of his clothes. He used to be a 30 in his jeans and he sagged in those. Now, he can’t even get them past his thighs. He’s wearing all new clothes now and he’s buying XL’s and sporting a baggy look for now,” our source reveals. “It’s not an issue for him though. The weight will come off in due time and I don’t think he’s lost a pound yet.”
