Ronnie Coleman Now: Here’s What The Former Mr. Olympia Winner Is Doing In 2021

Considered one of the greatest bodybuilders of all time, Ronnie Coleman won his first professional title back in 1995. He went on to become an eight-time Mr. Olympia winner, a record he holds for most wins alongside fellow champ Lee Haney. But where is Ronnie Coleman now? Is there any truth to the rumors that he can no longer walk? Here’s a look at the life of retired pro bodybuilder Ronnie Coleman in 2021.

Ronnie Coleman Won The Mr. Olympia Bodybuilding Contest In 1998

Coleman admits that when he first started lifting weights, he didn’t intend for it to become a career. “I just worked out and competed because I was given a free membership to the gym,” the former pro said in a 2019 interview with Bodybuilding.com “It was just a way for me to save money on gym memberships. Because all of my life I have considered weightlifting just a hobby. Even when I got into bodybuilding it was still a hobby, but just on a different level, or in a different form.”

But once Coleman starting winning competitions, he realized it might be his destiny to go pro. In 1995, he won the Canada Pro Cup — his first competition as a professional. He won the title again in 1996, and took home the IFBB Grand Prix Russia title the following year. In 1998, Coleman won his first Mr. Olympia title, which is considered the most prestigious bodybuilding award in the world. He went on to win the title seven more times in a row, for a total of eight consecutive victories, before he was finally defeated by Jay Cutler in 2006.

Ronnie Coleman’s Body Slowly Started To Break Down Over The Years

Of course, all that heavy lifting began taking a toll on Coleman’s body over the years. The champ said he got used to living in pain and continued working out despite suffering serious injuries. Coleman even admits he completely ignored one of his first major injuries, a herniated disc. “There was a loud crunching sound,” he explained on The Joe Rogan Experience in 2020. “I lost a little strength. I heard it, but the athlete in you is like, ‘Let’s go on.’”

While Coleman was able to minimize his ailments at first, there eventually came a time when he could no longer ignore the fact that his body was breaking down.

“The first time you herniate a disc it’s as if you stack a bunch of cans on top of each other and you snap one out,” he told Joe Rogan. “Well after a while the other ones are going to start falling out of place, too.”

Doctors Warned Coleman That He Could Become Paralyzed

Since retiring from pro bodybuilding in 2007, Coleman has had more than a dozen major procedures to correct his issues — including two hip replacements and 10 back surgeries. , he revealed that he’d spent over $2 million on surgeries that had done more harm than good — and was afraid he might never be able to walk again.

“I’ve had too much damage done to my body from all these surgeries,” he admitted. “A lot of it has to do with the way the surgeon performed the surgery. And the surgeon that I’ve had the last three surgeries has been really bad and caused a lot of damage to my body so I don’t know if I’ll be able to walk, but I’m gonna give it my best shot. But I think if that surgeon had to perform these surgeries right, then I would have been walking a long, long time ago.”

What Is Ronnie Coleman Doing Now In 2021?

Luckily, Coleman was not left paralyzed by his surgical procedures. He continues to work out and shares tons of weightlifting content with his 1.1 million YouTube subscribers and 4 million Instagram followers.

Nevertheless, the former Mr. Olympia champ is still paying the price for years of 800 lb. squats and deadlifts. In his 2020 Joe Rogan interview, he admitted that he can only walk a short distance without help. “I can walk, maybe from here to that wall unassisted but after being up for so long, my legs get real weak,” he said.

And while the former pro is still huge, you can tell his body has atrophied and is not as strong as it used to be.

Still, Coleman told Rogan he’s grateful that his condition isn’t worse. The heavyweight also credited stem cell therapy treatments with helping him reduce his pain significantly.

“Every time I get one it gets better and better, so I just gotta keep getting it. I’ve got another one in May. Every time I get one, I feel improvements. I’ve had two so far,” Coleman said of the treatments. “The pain is gone now. I’ve only got a little bit now, not a lot at all. So it’s getting better.”

Report: ‘Seething’ Kris Jenner Out To Ruin ‘Twisted’ Kanye West

Report: ‘Seething’ Kris Jenner Out To Ruin ‘Twisted’ Kanye West

Was Kris Jenner trying to ruin Kanye West’s life to get back at him for all the “nasty things” he said about her daughter Kim Kardashian? A tabloid recently claimed Jenner wouldn’t stop coming after him until he came “crawling” on his hands and knees with an apology. Gossip Cop looked into the rumor.

Kris Jenner Still “Flinching In Fury” About Kanye West?

The Globe recently reported that Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Kris Jenner had turned into a “savage lioness” in her efforts to protect daughter Kim Kardashian from her estranged husband Kanye West. In fact, the tabloid insisted, the 65-year-old momager was determined to make West “so miserable he’ll wish he’d never been born.” Ultimately, her hope was supposedly to have West “crawling on his hands and knees with a heartfelt apology after all the nasty things he said and did,” a source told the outlet. 

“There’s not a day goes by that Kris doesn’t flinch with fury over what Kanye did to Kim and the whole family in general,” the snitch added. Though West has behaved in a manner that Jenner probably doesn’t appreciate, the tabloid insisted that Jenner was still “seething” over “bipolar Kanye’s shocking public claim” at an election event last summer where he revealed sensitive information about his oldest child during what Kardashian later referred to as a bipolar disorder episode. 

In the months since Kardashian filed for divorce, West has reportedly cut off all contact between himself and his estranged wife and seemingly skipped out on his youngest son’s birthday party that Kardashian organized. Despite all those recent happenings, the outlet focused on something that happened almost a year ago at this point. What the momager did have a problem with, the source continued, was the fact that he “ghosted” the entire Kardashian family. 

“She thinks he’s being especially bitter and twisted and it’s obvious that he’s trying to ghost the whole Kardashian family like they never existed,” the tattler whispered. While Kardashian was content to let the divorce play out without engage in petty antics, her mother was more than “happy to take the lead on her behalf. Until West apologizes for everything he’s done to her family, Jenner reportedly doesn’t plan to give him a moment of peace. 

Jenner to Make West’s Life A Nightmare?

“Until that happens she’ll have no issue calling him out and making life as difficult for him as possible. She has a lot of influence in Hollywood and plenty of dirt that will embarrass him plenty,” the tipster noted, “whether it’s by plot lines on the Kardashian reality show, trickling information out or rallying others to bring him down.” In conclusion, the source left West with an ominous warning, hissing, “He’d better watch out!” If this tale sounds too melodramatic to be true, that’s because it is. 

The tabloids love to paint Kris Jenner as some sort of mastermind and meddler who delights in nothing more than manipulating the people around her into getting exactly what she wants from them. According to this particular outlet’s reporting, this is something that Jenner has mastered. So why is it that West is still as famous and popular among his peers as he’s ever been? 

Could it be that Jenner isn’t the methodical manipulator that she’s rumored to be and that the outlet simply made this all up? That sounds far more reasonable to us. Besides, Jenner seems to be extremely competent, so if she’d really decided to ruin West, chances are he’d be ruined, not dating Bradley Cooper’s model ex Irina Shayk. His life is far from ruined, despite this outlet’s ridiculous musings. 

It doesn’t surprise Gossip Cop at all that this outlet would make up such a silly story. We already took the Globe to task recently for claiming that a “desolate” Kanye West had swelled up to over 300 pounds in the aftermath of his divorce from Kim Kardashian. The shady outlet even went as far to claim Kardashian used to be able to curb West’s “gobbling,” but that his compulsive eating was out of control without her oversight. That was not only untrue but needlessly cruel as well. That should be this tabloid’s new motto: untrue and needlessly cruel.
