In a recent press stop to promo the album, she stopped by The Real daytime talk show to chat everything, from getting out of her controlling relationship with R. Kelly to all of the work she’s had done on her body.
Although the Memphis native was naturally curvy before having any procedures, she said she was insecure and thought that “Maybe if I had a huge butt, I’ll get even bigger love.”
Years after her butt implants, however, K. Michelle says she’s ready to take them out because they’re affecting her health. After severe aching, she went to get checked for lupus and later discovered that her legs were actually too small to support her butt.
The singer, whose latest single “Kim K” is about the beauty restrictions society places on black women, said that people don’t talk about the health repercussions of super-enhanced surgeries. “I’ve literally gone to doctors who don’t want to touch it,” she shared.
Fortunately, K. Michelle found a doctor who’s willing to remove the implants next month.
Her doctor told her that he sees this issue all the time, although people aren't as candid about it. “But imagine if you don't have the money to get it out,” she said. “So you got these butt shots and you're in pain, but you don't have any money to get it out of you. They don't tell you about that.”
Sending love and support to K. Michelle during her surgery, and thx for being so honest and vulnerable ❤️ ! Watch the interview clip here:
