Jaden then shared two recent bulked-up photos of himself and compared them to an image of him performing at Coachella in 2019, where the singer appeared much thinner.

The musician chalked up a lot of his previous gut issues to his sweet tooth. ‘I do have pain,’ he said.
‘I eat so much sugar that I have a candida buildup that happens in my stomach.’
Jaden said that the source of the pesky sugar was his breakfast of choice – pancakes – which his grandmother revealed he’s been eating every day since he was a child.
‘Just doing that for literally the past like, just my entire freaking life of 23 years, I feel like it’s just built up for a long time,’ he said.
