"I met Andre almost 30 years ago when I came to the United States," Iman says. "Through the years I have witnessed his gaining weight. I have been alarmed by it and wishfully thinking that he'd get back on course and lose the weight. My main concern has been about his health. I jumped for joy that he actually did something.
"Andre, I am so proud of you! And I am so happy that you're finally taking hold of your life and your health. Please stay on course. Forget about fashion—it's all about health. Forward, Andre. Love you."
