Setting a Good Example
For a while, butt injections seemed to be a popular thing. The procedure’s 15-minutes-of-fame ran out shortly after the numerous horror stories began to circulate though. Pictures of deformed bottoms flooded social media feeds, acting as a deterrent.
Unfortunately, “Love ‘Em All” singer K. Michelle is one of the many women who found herself dealing with health issues after getting the injections. So, the star is getting her natural curves back.
Health Over Everything
K. Michelle — also known as Kimberly — got her implants removed at the beginning of the new year, but fans will get to relive it with her, as the procedure will air on Dr. Oz’s show Tuesday, Feb. 27. After the implants began causing her pain and other health issues, Kimberly decided that they had to go.
“I didn’t start to feel any pain or have any issues until like a year ago and my health just started to decline,” the star told Dr. Oz. “I had seen some stories of a lot of women who were going through the same thing and it was like discoloration, it was pain in your back, it was migraines, it was super discomfort.”
“It’s like you always have this intuition when you know you might want to ignore it but I couldn’t ignore it anymore, and it just wasn’t worth it to me,” she added.
Her dwindling health not only affected her overall well-being but also her career. K. Michelle broke down into tears while on Maryland, Virginia radio show The Fam In The Morning, as she explained how the procedure subsequently lead to a dangerous drug dependency.
“They were tryna put me in rehab. I was taking, like, Percocet and Adderall to stay up,” she shared.
“I was really sick”
Her unhealthy relationship with the prescription pills lead to her missing an important fan meet and greet set up by KYS. “And the rumor was she just didn’t show up,” host Quicksilva recounted. “It really got personal because we had a young lady, who was a cancer patient, and she had chemo that day. She skipped her chemo to meet K. Michelle. So, she was so let down when K. Michelle didn’t show up.”
He then said that “the powers that be” essentially “black-balled” the singer afterwards, refusing to play her music and invite her for interviews. Explaining her side of the story, the “Can’t Raise a Man” artist couldn’t maintain her composure.
After revealing that she accidentally slept through the event, she said, “I called every single one… every single one of them people that came to y’all morning show.” “I called them, FaceTimed them myself. And even the girl with cancer said, ‘We know that’s not like you,’” she added.
“I would never leave nobody sitting there waiting. I hate being late going on stage,” she went on. She then shared that she was shocked at how her illness was treated, referring to being shunned by radio stations, adding, “If I’d have died, then everybody would have been like ‘oh my God, I loved her.’”
“I was really sick,” she said, beginning to cry. The artist then warned women about butt injections, saying that getting sick is inevitable. “What women don’t know, what’s going on right now, if you got those shots four or five years ago, you’re gonna be sick. It’s no avoiding it. It’s nothing you can do to avoid it,” she said.
