AUSTRALIA. (THECOUNT) — Post Malone fans expressed concern after the singer appeared to have experienced dramatic weight loss while exhibiting some strange movements while on stage in Australia.

Fans feared the singer, 27, was about to become another “Amy Winehouse” after he was captured on video performing in a t-shirt and cargo shorts while on tour in Australia.

Via TMZ:

Sources close to Post tell TMZ … there’s no need for fans to be alarmed, because he’s not on drugs or sick, in fact, it’s quite the opposite.

Our sources say Post previously gained some weight for a movie role, but ever since he’s been adhering to a strict diet and working out. Post’s been touring since September, and he does a 90-minute set, and we’re told that’s contributing to the weight loss too.

Many fans maintained there was no cause for concern as Malone was just being Malone.
