Photos showing Janet Jackson has piled on the pounds look set to scupper her plans to release a keep-fit DVD.
The singer has history of food demons but delighted fans when she showed off a svelte and toned figure for a 2006 pop video shoot.
She claimed at the time a healthy diet and exercise regime had helped her shed excess fat and vowed to make an inspirational keep-fit film insisting, "If I can do it, anyone can."
However, photographs published in Friday's (06Jul07) newspapers tell a different story.
Taken poolside at her Miami mansion, they depict an out-of-shape Jackson in a shapeless T-shirt and sports trousers to try and hide her widening figure.
