Janet Jackson piled on the pounds following the death of her brother MICHAEL - because she has always found comfort in food when she's low.
The superstar has battled weight issues throughout her career and admits she turned to high-calorie treats to help her cope following the death of the King of Pop last summer (09).
She says, "It's stress. When I'm feeling down, I do turn to food. Normally people don't eat; they don't have an appetite... It's just the opposite; you eat everything."
