'American Idol' judge Randy Jackson has gastric bypass surgery

By Reality TV World staff, 07/19/2003 

"American Idol" judge Randy Jackson, who in the past has been critical of less-than-svelte contestants on the FOX program and adviced them to lose some weight to improve their presentation, has apparently now decided to take his own advice... in a drastic manner.

According to the New York Post, "Inside Edition" is reporting that has had gastric bypass surgery in an attempt to lose weight. Jackson, 46, underwent a procedure called the Fobi Pouch last week at the Center for the Surgical Treatment of Obesity in Southern California.

"The patients who undergo this kind of procedure are usually morbidly obese," surgeon Dr. Basil Felahy told "Inside Edition." "By giving [the patient] a small pouch which is going to be his stomach from now on, the main stomach and bowel attached to it is bypassed."
