Jesse James Decker broke down in tears while talking about the cruel comments she’s been receiving about her body.
The songstress, 33, took to Instagram on Tuesday to call out a Reddit board which she recently learned ‘rips’ her apart ‘on a daily basis’ over her weight.
‘It’s pretty awful, and I cannot believe this is still happening in the world — that people are doing this,’ she told her 3.7million followers, admitting ‘Yes, I have gained weight, 100 percent.’

Decker was honest with her fans, explaining how she’s tried to have a more healthy relationship with her body.
‘I used to obsessed over it,’ she said. ‘I tried to stay a certain weight, and most recently, over the past year, I decided to just let myself live.’
‘I work out, and I eat what I want, and I 100 percent am 10 pounds heavier than I used to be,’ Jessie went on, noting she used to weigh around 115lbs.
Pivoting back to the ‘disgusting’ Reddit boards, she asked: ‘How can you wake up and live with yourself?’
‘I’m shaking because I cannot believe what I’m reading.’
Jessie began to get emotional as she admitted: ‘It is hurtful, and I am such a strong, confident person, and I always have been, but it does hurt my heart a little that people are ripping every little thing about me apart.’

The former reality star, who is a mother of three, went on to condemn bullying of any kind, saying: ‘It’s me and it’s bullying and it’s not OK.’
‘I hope my daughter doesn’t grow up in a world where people do this to her because it’s wrong.’
‘I think we all need to do better,’ she went on before noting she herself ‘isn’t perfect.’
‘Just know you’re not alone,’ Jessie told followers. ‘I’m going to wipe my tears and pull myself together because I’m a mom.’
Decker’s confession comes after the star told DailyMail.com about her new perspective on fitness, saying: ‘I shifted my whole thought process on dieting at the top of this year.’
‘I would count my calories and diet and do more cardio but I realized that wasn’t working for my body anymore.
‘It was effective throughout my pregnancies when I needed to lose baby weight but I needed to adapt to my body and now my body wants to be strong and fuel up.’

Earlier this year Decker revealed another type of body transformation, unveiling her newly augmented breasts for fans in May.
At the time, she said she went under the knife because ‘you only life once.’
‘I treated myself… to new boobies!’ she said on Instagram as she posted in a bikini.
‘After deciding we were done having babies I was finally ready to go big or go home ha! I had breast reduction and lift a couple years ago when they were hanging down to my belly button but with having such elastic skin and not being happy with the size I decided to do it.
‘They were so big and perky before children and I wanted them back … plus some. I feel great; I’m super happy with them and felt like a brand new woman when I was trying on our new @kittenish swim and loving the way they finally filled out the tops like I wanted it’s not for everybody but it was certainly for me! I always say, you do you and do what makes you feel confident and sexy. #YOLO.’
