Britney Spears' rep denies tummy tuck and depression rumors

11/10/2005 at 02:34 PM ET

_01bs Leslie Sloane Zelnick, the publicist for Britney Spears, has commented on rumors that Britney is feeling depressed after the birth of son Sean, and that she had a tummy tuck following her c-section delivery. Leslie says, "She is not depressed, nor has she had a tummy tuck…She is a 23-year-old mom who was in amazing shape before she got pregnant and was able to get back in shape after the baby arrived."

Personally, I don’t think Britney’s weight loss is all that surprising – she’s 23, she was in relatively good shape (although I don’t think I would go as far as Leslie and say ‘amazing’ shape) before she got pregnant, is burning extra calories breastfeeding, and has great genes ( look at her mom, a skinny minnie after three children), but people like to feed the rumor machine anyway. Speaking of rumors, Leslie did not comment on any of the Kevin partying/moving out of the house/separation gossip that has been going around recently.

I think people harangue her far too much about her weight. And, if she had a tummy tuck, who gives an [expletive]. People get criticized for being fat and grotesque; then when they do something about it they get gigged for taking steps to correct an imperfection they are unhappy living with. No winning. Let’s give women’s bodies a break for once. And, the only dead weight Britney needs to lose is called KFat.

I had my first baby at 22 and my stomach didn’t take long to firm up again. It’s much easier to regain muscle tone at a younger age.

I also had a csection with both my kids. I was 19 with the first and 21 with the second. I was also in great shape with my first but I never got my body back. But, I do know a few women who went through csections at a young age and had their size 5 bodies back within 6 months. I also did not breastfeed either of my children. I think Britney was in great shape before and is used to working at it to keep fit. Her mom had 3 kids and is in great shape too. My mom gained 60 pounds when PG with my brother and was back to a size 3 in 2 months. Some things are genetic, some aren’t!! Who cares if she had a tummy tuck anyway. More power to her!
