In brief: Yes

Male or female, gaining body fat is likely to make acne flare.
Nobody really understands why though of course hormones are suspect. Please take this warning as an invitation to do something positive -- change how you think about food and fitness. Eat only to satisfy hunger, get into a gym / fitness culture, and give yourself a gift far more wonderful than just good looks -- good health again.
