Adele’s former personal trainer, Pete Geracimo, has come to her defense after seeing “negative commentary” regarding the singer’s dramatic weight loss.
Adele showed off her weight loss earlier this week as she celebrated her 32nd birthday. Geracimo revealed on Instagram that despite “fat-phobic accusations” made against the star, it was never about weight loss, but about getting healthy.
“It’s disheartening to read negative commentary and fat-phobic accusations questioning the genuineness of her amazing weight loss,” Geracimo wrote on Instagram of a photo of himself training Adele during a swim session. “I could not be prouder or happier for her! This metamorphosis is not for album sales, publicity or to be a role model. She is doing it for herself and for son Angelo.
