The Booty Chronicles
More Health Scares
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.
That drug dependency led her to miss a meet-and-greet at a radio show that occurred nearly two years ago, where a young lady with cancer had skipped out on her chemo treatment for the day in order to see K. Michelle. Management at the radio station had the knee-jerk reaction to distance themselves from K. Michelle, until they asked her about it and found out that she had missed the meet-and-greet because she was “sick”. HHMW has reported on the story:
K. Michelle — who recently declared she’d only answer to the name Kimberly — began to explain that during that time she was “sick,” depending on Percocet and Adderall to get through every day. “They were tryna put me in rehab. I was taking, like, Percocet and Adderall to stay up,” she shared.
She went on to say that she wasn’t eating and weighed much less than she should have, with her doctor constantly warning her about her dwindling health. She then said that on the morning of her appearance, she “completely slept through the morning show.”
While the devastating effects were plastered in headline after headline at the time, no one talked about the damage control the singer did afterwards. After revealing that no one on her immediate team “wanted to” wake her up, she said she personally called everyone to apologize for her mishap.
“I called every single one… every single one of them people that came to y’all morning show,” K. Michelle began. “I called them, FaceTimed them myself. And even the girl with cancer said, ‘We know that’s not like you.’”
“I would never leave nobody sitting there waiting. I hate being late going on stage,” she said. 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.
A Beef Reignited
Interestingly enough, one of K. Michelle’s former rivals visited Steve Harvey’s talk show shortly after K. Michelle to discuss the topic of implants and plastic surgery. The former, and possibly renewed rival was singer and television personality Tamar Braxton.
On the show, Braxton made comments that would ultimately be perceived as shots fired by K. Michelle. On the topic of butt implants Braxton said the following;
“I just think that you do have to do your research. But you can’t be thinking you’re gonna go ahead and have plastic surgery on the Groupon. Ain’t no plastic surgery on sale! Like that’s not gonna happen. And if it’s on sale, 9 times out of 10, you’re not supposed to get it from the person that’s having a sale. Don’t do that.
After the show aired, K. Michelle let loose a flurry of tweets seemingly directed at Braxton, but without any definite indicators. “Ugly face a** milk dud”, she tweeted. Michelle followed it up with two others:“Tell that to your left nostril broke joke” and “You so called paid all that money and your nose still doing the Gangsta lean 😇”. Seems like the beef they squashed at the 2015 BET Awards may be back on.
After K. Michelle’s surgery, it was revealed that her doctor, Dr. Michael Niccole, was only able to remove 40 percent of the injections, because a full removal of the injections would be impossible. Apparently, the injections had been comprised of thousands of small pellets that expanded once inside of the booty.
“They’re not supposed to be inside the body,” Dr. Oz explained. “It’s illegal to inject anywhere. So …whoever did this, did something that we knew wouldn’t be good for you.” Dr. Oz also noted the possibility of the pellets being carcinogenic, which would present a whole different set of health risks if that was the case.
NEW BOOTY ALERT
Although she has shared pictures of her re-redone booty on Instagram in the past, she has taken them down… But just recently, K. Michelle shared a picture of what her booty is looking like today. On top of the update, K. Michelle explains in the caption that her new old booty may be sparking an attitude readjustment in her. Additionally, she encourages her audience to practice self-love without the aid of body modification. Check out the photo above, and the caption below:
So today I forgot that I don’t have a big ass anymore. I looked at this picture and said girl your attitude is 2bad for your ass to be this small, it’s time for self readjustment. Big booty bish mentality with a real snack in the back. Lol. I’m kidding! I feel great and as spicy as ever. One more surgery Tuesday. Imagine loving yourself minus enhancements and likes🌻
Now that K. Michelle’s booty drama is soon to be in the past, she can rededicate her full attention to her career in music and business. K. Michelle’s most recent music project was her fourth studio album, titled Kimberly: The People I Used to Know, which dropped in December of 2017. The tour for the album took place over the span of a month, from February to March. Recently, K. Michelle shared a video on her Instagram that included a caption that explained how her health has impacted her ability to create music, but said that she’ll be back in the game soon:
