Designer Marc Jacobs admits posting a nude selfie on Instagram earlier this week while flirting with a fan.

Jacobs ‘fessed up about the Instagram nudie, and said it’s not a big deal, so people need to calm down.

“Yeah, I accidentally posted a pic of my bare ass and took it down,” Marc told Paper magazine July 1. “I was flirting with someone I met on Instagram. Meant to send it by DM. Oops, my mistake.”

Jacobs, 52, is single after reportedly splitting from porn star boyfriend Harry Louis in 2013. Marc apologized to anyone offended by his nude Instagram photo, but said it’s no big deal.

“I apologize to anyone it offended,” said Marc. “I’m a gay man. I flirt and chat with guys online sometimes. BIG DEAL!”

Jacobs looks fantastic and has maintained his 30-pound weight loss since 2006 with weightlifting workouts and a low-carb diet. Marc is fitter now at 52 than he was at 32, thanks to a strict low-carb diet and daily weightlifting workouts.

“I went from 21 percent body fat to 5 percent body fat and I had muscle,” said Jacobs. “I was in and out of the hospital because I had flare-ups of ulcerative colitis. I’d be in the office for 16 hours a day, six of which were in the bathroom because I was so ill. I ate nothing but junk food.”

The health crisis gave Marc the wake-up call he needed to drastically transform his lifestyle and body. Jacobs adopted a strict diet that banned caffeine, sugar, white flour and dairy and incorporated lots of healthy omega 3 fats and nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables.

Other celebrities who have lost dramatic amounts of weight on a low-carb diet include Kendra Wilkinson, who lost 55 pounds on a ketogenic-based Atkins diet and Tim McGraw, who lost 40 pounds on a low-carb Paleo diet.

Tim McGraw lost 40 pounds with a low-carb Paleo diet and CrossFit.

Low-carb diets such as the ketogenic, Atkins and Paleo diets fuel rapid weight loss by forcing the body to burn fat for fuel, said obesity expert Dr. Eric Westman, co-author of Keto Clarity.

Marc also worked out one to two hours a day, six days a week and was stunned by how much better he looked and felt.

“It affected me so much,” said Jacobs. “I became so much more confident. For so many years, I felt so insecure, so inferior, and I still have those moments, but I have a newfound confidence since I got in shape and changed my diet.”
