Kelly Clarkson will never let the haters stop her from doing her thang!
Shortly after a doctor warned the American Idol champ that her recent weight gain could lead to potential health hazards, the 33-year-old was all smiles as she stepped out for an appearance at BBC Radio 1 in London earlier today, June 4.

Dr. Stuart Fischer — who has never treated the star — estimated she weighs more than 200 pounds. He speculates that she’s gained nearly 100 pounds since her American Idol days.
“Being heavier may help her singing voice, but it will not help her health,” the doctor tells Radar Online. “Obesity is a risk factor for 65 different illnesses, including multiple cancers in women.”

Much of Kelly’s weight gain occurred after she gave birth to her daughter, River Rose, on June 12, 2014. But Dr. Fischer worries that if she doesn’t change her health habits — she may not be around to see River grow up.
He says, “Obesity shortens life by 3 to 5 percent.”
