Takagi Reni, of idol groupMomoiro Clover, has fans worried that she may have an eating disorder, due to the alarming rate of her weight loss.

Earlier in March, Universal Music Japan held a public contract-signing ceremony with Momoclo and150 invited fans. At this event, the label held a 'weigh-in' section, for which the members of Momoclo had to publicly weigh themselves in front of their fans. In order to debut, their weights had to be below the "Idol weight", which is calculated at (Height - 100)0.9. However for Momoclo, they had to follow the formula (Height - 100)0.8.

Laughingly, the girls weighed themselves in front of reporters and fans. Unfortunately, only 5 members out of 6 passed the test; Takagi's weight was 0.8kg over the "Idol weight." Thus, she was told to re-weigh herself in 2 months. Takagi re-weighed herself at the end of April, and passed the new condition.

5 months later in October, fans began to worry that Takagi Reni has developed an eating disorder, due to the humiliation she felt at the public weigh-in. Universal Music Japan meant for the corner to be a light-hearted event, but it's hard to believe that they didn't consider how there wouldn't be a psychological repercussion for it.

We've got a photo chronology of Takagi Reni's physical decline, but please be warned that it may upset some viewers:

I remember this... Now the same thing might happen to BiS's Pour Lui - their manager SUSPENDED her from working because he wants her under 100 pounds (which isn't healthy for her age or her height). She's 44 kg and he wants her 42... It's not that serious but the manager doesn't even care and uploaded a video of her crying after being told she can't do any concerts or events. These gross ass companies...

The End
