The "Circles" artist has recently found himself at the center of fan speculation, including concerns that drug abuse could be the cause of his change in appearance.
But Malone, 27, finally cleared things up in a new Instagram post on Thursday, April 27, where he jumped on the app from his tour stop in Antwerp, Belgium to tell fans, "hello everybody, I hope you're having a great night. i wanted to say that i'm not doing drugs. i’ve had a lot of people ask me about my weight loss and i’d suppose, performance on stage."
"i’m having a lot of fun performing, and have never felt healthier," he explained, crediting his new lifestyle to the fact that he is now a father. The Grammy-nominated rapper became a dad last spring after welcoming a daughter with his fiancée in May 2022.
"i guess dad life kicked in and i decided to kick soda, and start [sic] eating better so i can be around for a long time for this little angel," he continued in his Instagram post. "next up is smokes and brews, but i like to consider myself a patient man… lol!"

"i just wanted to say hi, and hopefully i’ll be posting more on here, my brain is in a super dope place, and i’m the happiest i’ve been in a long time," he added.
