Vincenzo Zurlo, who claims to be the alleged victim of Jimenez De Rodriguez, told NBC Miami he met her through a friend. After several months of Botox treatments, he asked her about a nose job.
Jimenez De Rodriguez allegedly offered a second corrective procedure after Zurlo ended up unhappy with the first procedure and suffering from extreme pain.
However, Zurlo told the station that the results were also frustrating. According to him, Jimenez De Rodriguez ruined his life, adding that he paid $2,800 for the surgery.
