After Riverdale’s Lili Reinhart Blew Up Over Kim Kardashian’s Rapid Weight Loss, The Reality Star’s Trainer Responded

At the 2022 Met Gala, Kim Kardashian caused quite a stir for the umpteenth time in her career. The theme for this year’s prestigious fashion event was “Gilded Glamour,” so the opulence was overflowing, and the 41-year-old fulfilled the brief by wearing the iconic 1962 dress that Marilyn Monroe wore when she sang for JFK. Kardashian revealed that fitting into the piece in time meant foregoing carbs and losing a lot of weight fairly quickly, to the tune of 16 lbs. As a result, quite a few people including Riverdale’s Lili Reinhart called her out on social media, for what was perceived as a “disgusting” and “harmful” rapid weight loss message. The reality star herself hasn’t responded to the judgmental accusations, but her trainer surely has.

The minimal time fram for the 16-pound loss didn’t read well in Lili Reinhart’s book for obvious reasons, as the actress has been very candid in the past about her own struggles with body image and body dysmorphia. However, the trainer behind Kim Kardashian’s controversial transformation, Don Brooks, argues that the actress is working off of “misconceptions” about his client. Brooks, a celebrity fitness trainer who also runs the exclusive DON-A-MATRIX fitness center in Los Angeles, said this when speaking to TMZ:

I think one of the misconceptions people have about Kim is – she works like really hard, right? I was there through the process, so it wasn’t like a ‘starving yourself’ type of thing. I mean, she just went on a well-balanced diet, and at times, you know, she wouldn’t eat as much. But then the second thing was she would be in the gym and put the work in.
