ꦦ“Mine is a different one than people assume but I ended up having to do that too because my blood work got so bad.”

While the “American Idol” alum didn’t disclose the name of the prescription drug she’s been taking, she insisted it was not Ozempic.

“My doctor chased me for two years and I was like, ‘No, I’m afraid of it. I already have thyroid problems,’” the mom of two, 42, said.

“I dropped weight because I’ve been listening to my doctor — a couple of years I didn’t,” she told at the time.

“And 90% of the time I’m really good at it because a protein diet is good for me anyway. I’m a Texas girl, so I like meat — sorry, vegetarians in the world!”
