K. Michelle hit us last winter with the news that she was bidding farewell to her infamous big booty (gasp!) she had enhanced with illegal butt shots years ago before she hit the big time. At the top of January, she went through with butt shot removal and didn’t skip a beat. The R&B songstress was quickly back on tour showcasing more natural curves, however she revealed this weekend that things didn’t go as smoothly as she made it look.
Kimberly Michelle Pate explained to her fans in a lengthy Instagram post everything that went down post-removal. “For 26 cities I was on steroids to walk and keep down infection causing me to get off stage and be rushed to ER over 4 times and then the next day back on stage,” she wrote.
“I later found out the silicone had spread and I would be rushed back into surgery. Last Wednesday I entered surgery barely functioning with my legs and an infection. The surgery to remove all of this from me lasted a long 6 hours.”
She continued to reveal that even after the long surgery, she had to be rushed to ER for 2 blood transfusions and is currently undergoing therapy so she can heal and walk properly. Yikes! But she’s not letting this ordeal get her down. In the same post she talked about her excitement for her twins coming later this year via surrogate. The 34-year-old is already a mother of one to a son, but decided to conceive through a surrogate after a Lupus scare led to fertility issues.
We’re wishing her the best on her recovery so she can take care of the babies on the way. And if K. Michelle’s story doesn’t scare you out of getting black market butt injections, maybe this woman’s VERY graphic story will.
