Steve Harvey allegedly became more egotistical since he lost 30 pounds.

In its Oct. 17 issue, National Enquirer claimed that Harvey decided to lose weight because he will be turning 65 years old in January 2022.

Other than his weight loss journey, Harvey also became more obsessed with looking good to the point that he waxes almost his entire body.

“Steve turns 65 in January and about six months ago, he decided he was going to get in the best shape of his life, really just give himself a total makeover. He started working out with his trainer as often as six days a week, lifting weights, and doing cardio. He also went back to eating really clean and healthy, no fried food, less sugar, that kind of thing,” the source said.

Before he started his weight loss journey, Harvey allegedly tipped the scales at 260 pounds. He was photographed on a yacht with his wife and everyone noticed how big his belly was.

After losing 30 pounds, Harvey now weighs 220 pounds at 6-foot-2-inches.

“Steve looks amazing. You can tell he feels great by the way he’s strutting around. He’s got this newfound body confidence and so happy that he’s dropped all that weight,” the source said.

However, even though Harvey’s friends are happy for him and his transformation, they are allegedly convinced that the talk show host had some professional help.

There are rumors that Harvey had his chest and jaw sculpted. And he’s allegedly become so obsessed with his chest that he waxes it almost every day.

“Lately, he’s always smooth and shiny and wears the shirts to show it off, even at work, which he never used to do. Steve has always had a huge ego but ever since he debuted his new look, it’s gone over-the-top,” the source said.

While it is true that Harvey lost a considerable amount of weight recently, there’s no truth to the tabloid’s claim that he’s become so obsessed with his body.

In fact, Harvey previously explained that he just committed to loving and taking care of himself more after years of yo-yo dieting. 

So, it's possible that the host is just proud of his progress as would anyone who will also lose 30 pounds.

As for Harvey being obsessed with waxing his chest, there’s also no proof that this is the case. And the speculations exist simply because Harvey has been wearing clothes that flaunt his bare chest.
