Jaheim, the smokey voiced R&B singer known for soulful hits like ‘Put That Woman First’ has returned to the scene with a new look.
Fans of the New Jersey native (real name Jaheim Hoagland) hit social media to voice concern over his health after recent photos he posted on Instagram show him with reddish hair and a much thinner physique.
The platinum recording artist burst on the scene in 2001 with songs like “Just In Case” and 2003’s “Put That Woman First” but now in 2018, the singer looks quite different than many remember.
In some of photos, Jaheim’s face appears gaunt with scraggly grayish beard and chapped lips. The photos have evan caused some fans to speculate about possible drug use.
For the record, Jaheim has noted that he’s a vegan now and is simply eating healthier these days.
The soulful singer is also still making music as he notes in a recent caption:
