Torn and ready! Paulini, 36, shows off her slender frame in spontaneous gymnastics photo … after THAT fat-shame incident on American Idol in 2003
She was told by Australian Idol jury member Ian Dickson that she & # 39; more suitable clothing & # 39; during a notorious incident in 2003 about fat burning.
But Paulini Curuenavuli, 36, had the last laugh after showing her slender frame in a spontaneous gym photo on Wednesday.
The singer wore a pair of black leggings and shows off her muscular diaphragm in a white trimmed sports piece as she is surrounded by training equipment.

& # 39; I don't normally leave my body, but you have to expect great things from yourself before you can do them, & she wrote the Instagram post.
The former reality TV star wanted to show her slender physique in recent months and played a model for the Stellar magazine in March.
It was the figure of the Australian-Fijian star that was the subject of perhaps the most infamous moment in the history of Australian Idol.
Controversial: Paulini was memorable told by Australian Idol jury member Ian Dickson that she & # 39; more suitable clothing & # 39; in 2003
Judge Ian & # 39; Dicko & # 39; Dickson came under fire after commenting on the then 21-year-old Paulini & # 39; s unique golden dress during the very first season of the show.
He abruptly criticized the tight golden dress that the singer was wearing after one of her performances at the show.
& # 39; You need to choose more suitable clothes or lose some pounds, & # 39; he said.
In 2014, the singer told Women's Day that the moment on television has touched me a lot & # 39 ;.
& # 39; (It) made me feel confident. I went back on stage and began to sob, & she said.
Hard criticism: & # 39; You should choose better fitting clothing or lose some kilos, & # 39; said Ian (photo) at that time
In 2017, Ian finally regretted his remarks and sent a message to Paulini via the website on Wednesday Dave, Sam and Ash show on Hot 91.1 FM.
& # 39; I can't believe it was 13 years since I said those eleven everyday words that had set the Australian media on fire & he said.
& # 39; I was trying to be nice at the time, you can believe, but I'm glad you did such great things & # 39 ;, he thought.
After a joke about how are & # 39; cruel little words & # 39; the pair & # 39; the Australian reality TV power couple & # 39; the ex-music performer born in England ended in a real tone.
& # 39; What I want to say is, I am so proud of you girl, you get them, & # 39; he gushed.
