K Michelle Opens up about Regret over Getting Black Market Injections to Enhance Her Body on 'Dr Phil'
K. Michelle is opening up about how much she regrets getting black-market injections to enhance her body. The singer/reality star also opened up about the years-long life-threatening effects of her decision.
K. Michelle has always been honest about her decision many years ago to get a butt augmentation procedure.
"It was on the black market, but I went to a person that was well known in my music circle… He was not a doctor; he does this in a hotel room. He told us that it was gel – some type of gel – when it was actually free-floating silicone in your body. So, I didn’t have any real symptoms until like five, six years later."
When the show host asked why she wanted to get silicone injections in the first place, K. Michelle said she just "wanted to be real thick."
"What was so messed up, Dr. Phil, if you pull up old pictures, I was already curvy," she admitted.
"I was pleased at the time, and then I started to look like an ant," K. Michelle continued. "Then one morning I woke up and my legs gave out. Just out of the blue, I just woke up and fell."
Later on, in the show, K. Michelle held nothing back as she tried to discourage a mom-of-five who was bent on getting a butt lift.
The "Love & Hip Hop" star previously underwent butt reduction surgery but continues to experience complications
"Do you know that they literally had to cut my tissue out of me?" asked the singer. "I have holes in my body."
"I have no choice. I have to go back ‘cause it’s pulling skin and causing pain. They told me I was gonna have to redo it. This has been a year of process; I’m going into two years with this. So, I have to go have a reconstructive surgery that I’m supposed to do next week. I am devastated; like scared, terrified."
During a radio interview last month, K Michelle also suggested that her music career had something to do with the decision to get body enhancements.
According to BET, the "Fallin'" singer said she had butt enhancement injections because she wanted to "feel beautiful" and get "ready to be the perfect artist."
Per Bossip, the "Love & Hip Hop" star previously underwent butt reduction surgery but continues to experience complications. K. Michelle was reportedly on Dr. Phil as part of press rounds for a new TV show she’ll be launching soon to help other women take out their butt injections.
