A NATURAL bodybuilder known as the “Liver King” who attributes his toned physique to an “ancestral lifestyle” has been accused of taking performance-enhancing drugs.

Brian Johnson says he’s reduced his muscular physique thanks to a diet that includes raw liver and other animal organs – but leaked emails now say he’s spending a whopping £9,000 a month on steroids.

Johnson, who lives in Austin, Texas, first rose to fame for his extremely toned physique and unusual eating habits in August 2021 when he began sharing insights into his lifestyle.

His “Primal Fare” diet, part of the nine “Tenets” program, also includes animal lungs and testicles.

However, the father-of-two has now been accused of taking performance-enhancing drugs by another bodybuilder, who claims he accessed leaked emails allegedly sent by Johnson.

However, Johnson has previously said his body is 100 percent natural and is kept in shape through intense exercise and his diet.

An hour-long video posted to the More Plates More Dates YouTube channel addresses the question of whether bodybuilders are “nude.” [natural] or not,” the host, known only as Derek, says he dug up the emails believed to have been sent by Johnson.

Claims in the footage, titled The Liver King Lie, say the correspondence showed Johnson confessing to wanting to grow the Liver King brand and admitting to spending a substantial £9,000 a month on human growth hormone.

The emails are said to have been sent to an unnamed coach in 2021, the same year the Liver King began posting on Instagram and building his fan base of more than 1.7million followers.

The video was released on Monday and quickly garnered attention, garnering more than 675,000 views in less than 24 hours.

Many viewers were quick to blast the hunk, with some hoping it would encourage others to be honest about their steroid use.

One commented: “This had to happen. I’m surprised he’s lasted this long.”

Another said: “Hopefully this is a game changer for the fitness industry and will lead to more transparency.”

A third person wrote: “Man it’s great to see that it’s finally been made clear that what we all knew was true. I feel sorry for the few people who thought he was smart.”

Johnson has previously been accused of taking steroids.

When Joe Rogan alluded to his possible steroid use, Johnson said he was just glad to be exposed to a wider audience.

The hosts of Barstool Sports podcast Pardon My Take also accused him of taking PEDs – performance-enhancing drugs.

In response, however, Johnson said, “I’ll be honest, I take PEDs: I prioritize, execute and dominate every damn morning.”

When contacted by Rolling Stone about the allegations, he neither confirmed nor denied broadcasting the news.

Johnson wrote in an email to the publication that his “message has always been about” the thousands of people who attempt suicide or die every day, noting that “our people are suffering from record levels of depression, anxiety, autoimmune diseases , barrenness and dejection suffer ambition in life…our young men suffer most…lost, weak and submissive.”

He pitched his Ancestral Living brand as a “solution,” emphasizing, “This is my fight!”
