Jimmy Jam before and after weight loss.

How did Jimmy Jam Lose Weight? Is He Ill?

James ‘Jimmy Jam’ Harris is worrying his fans since 2018. He was quite a healthy man, but now, his slender body tells a different story.

Jimmy Jam came to be after he partnered up with Terry Steven Lewis to create soulful R&B/pop music. The duo together has over 41 top ten hits in the US. With that many hits, he should’ve surely collected a huge fanbase.

Now, following his skinny self, the world is quite concerned about the singer’s health. Is he sick? Or has he been in a weight loss stint?

Well, all of us were in awe of the meatier look on Jimmy Jam, but in 2018, he shocked the whole world. On Jan 29, 2018, when he appeared at a Red Carpet event, he was, well, healthy.

However, a few months later, he had a different look on him; he seemed a little leaner. A year later, on February 11, 2019, Jimmy appeared at the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Party, and we were pretty shocked to see what he had turned into. He looked as if he had lost near to half of his weight.

Up until that point, he looked quite healthy, to say the least, but exactly a year later, at Elton John’s Oscar Party, Jimmy amazed his fans with a very willowy look.

What did His Fans Think About His Thinner Look?

Jimmy Jam’s body transformation created a buzz on the internet; his fans started worrying about him. On May 2, 2019, a fellow singer, Keith Sweat, took to his official Facebook page to share Jimmy’s weight loss. Well, this swooped in a decent number of comments on the post.

A fan by FB handle, Diane Alexander divulged that Jam looked sick and hoped he was alright. Another fan, Tom Mason, said he looked great and different from what he used to look.

Around September 2019, a fan wrote that Jimmy had lost most of his weight in 6 months in 2018.

Jimmy lost most of the weight in a 6 month period in 2018. If it was an illness, we probably would have heard by now. He played with Janet in MN a few nights ago.

Another fan, however, compared his weight loss with musician Prince, who died in 2016. His fan wrote,

Anyone see the Soul Train Awards? It was an amazing finale; Jimmy Jam continues to concern me. He’s losing weight like Charlie Murphy. Prince going downhill the same way but died before he looked as sick.
