New Idea Magazine made headlines this week after speaking to a “Top US obesity expert” Dr Edward Jackowski, who they quoted as saying Kyle “won’t live another six months at the rate he’s going”.

“Between chain smoking, fast food, lack of exercise and stress on set, the average person wouldn’t even be able to get through the work day,” the medic said.

Needless to say, the article has shaken those close to Kyle, with girlfriend Imogen taking to Twitter to express her dismay at the headline…


Jackie O got Dr Jackowski on the line to quiz him about the claims he made.

“I thought it was interesting that a doctor would go on record and actually say something like that,” Jackie said.

Dr Jackowski was very defensive, and denied saying the quotes New Idea published.

“I can’t speak on [New Idea’s] behalf,” he said.

“I never said someone would be dead in six months, would never do that to any human being, that’s not what I’m about, so I don’t know where you got that information from.”

Dr Jackowski’s response was very interesting. Listen to the full interview below.
