Just two months ago, Jessie James Decker revealed she was feeling "confident and sexy" after undergoing a breast augmentation — but on July 13, she broke down in tears when she discovered that multiple people had been body shaming her online.
In an Instagram Story, the Kittenish founder revealed that she came across a Reddit thread where people were "talking about, apparently, how fat I've gotten, and how boxy and how terrible my body looks."
"It's pretty awful," she said. "I just can't believe this is still happening in the world, like that people are doing this."
The mom-of-three noted that she has gained weight recently, but she's content with her physique.
"I used to obsess over it, try to stay a certain weight, and most recently over the past year I decided to just let myself live," she explained. "I work out and I eat what I want, and I 100 percent am 10 pounds heavier than what I used to be. Truthfully. I used to weigh like 115, and I'm not anymore! I eat what I want, and I'm happy with that."
That being said, Decker admitted that reading such harsh comments "does make you stop and look in the mirror and go, 'Is there something wrong with me?' Am I gaining weight, is there something wrong with me?'"
The "Wanted" singer insisted that despite her fame, she's as vulnerable as anyone else when it comes to self-doubt.
"I just want people to keep in mind that I'm a person, I'm a human being, and your words hurt me," she expressed. "And I know that I'm not perfect, but you pointing out my flaws about things I'm already insecure about, it already hurts me. And it doesn't feel good to be picked on or bullied or ripped apart."
The star concluded her video by asking people to follow the mantra of "if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all."
"If you don't like me, then leave me alone. If you don't like what I have to say, if you don't like what I have to do, if you don't like anything about me, then stop paying attention to me. Just leave me alone," she stated. "Don't obsess over what I do. Don't look at my pictures, don't look at my videos, don't look at my posts. If you don't like me, leave me alone."
