“If I was to guess, it is over 40. It was an addiction and I got into a cycle of surgery equals fame and money, I just lost control of everything I went through a lot of hard times.” She said,
“At one point I was just having surgeries to look like a Kardashian, I couldn’t do my own things like acting, as I was just known as a Kardashian lookalike.”

“There are people who make it [surgery] look good on Instagram but life isn’t perfect, and being addicted to surgery isn’t a good thing.”
