After receiving social media comments speculating that she has an eating disorder, Ariana took to her Instagram Story to hit back at the speculation. Ariana said she achieved her weight loss by working out and eating healthy, and blasted the "ridiculous and awful" comments about her size.
"I'm so over everyone acting like I lost 50 pounds overnight," she wrote. "I was 167 my sophomore year, 145ish the end of my junior. Started really working out, eating healthy, etc. January of 2020. I am now 118 over a year and a half later. I was 125 last summer."
"Please stop," she continued. "I do not have an eating disorder. I worked my a** off to get to where I am today. I am not sick. This is ridiculous and awful to say to someone. Stop commenting on people's bodies and worry about yourself."
"Well, she's 18 now, so it was like, 'Do it!'" Kim told ET. "I think she's been dying to be 18 so that she could do something like that or do her lips or do whatever – she's been dying to be 18."
Kim said Ariana looked "great" in the outfit and also said she was OK with her getting lip fillers like her and her eldest daughter, 24-year-old Brielle.
"She's blessed in that arena, but, you know, after watching Brielle and I, she's probably a little bit more motivated," Kim acknowledged. "But I'm like, 'You're 18.' Until you're 18 you can't do anything and that's kind of been the rule in my house, so she turned 18 a month ago, so we're doing OK."
"It's a couple thousand dollars a day, for sure," Kim said of the family's hair and makeup costs while filming Don't Be Tardy. "That's just the makeup and the styling of the hair. Not the wig itself, or the clothes."
