In June 2018, the mother of one opened up about undergoing four surgical procedures to remove her black market butt injections. She told People magazine that the silicone spread throughout parts of her lower body, damaging her tissue and threatening her overall health.

“It’s the scariest thing in life, and I’m a tough girl,” she said at the time. “I had these lumps and I was very disfigured.”

The singer said she’s learned her lesson from her botched experience and that it’s changed her overall perspective on life.

“I’ve gone through a physical transformation, a mental transformation, I think I’m more tough,” she continued. “I don’t take a minute for granted. And hopefully this [transformation] will go on through the rest of my life and not just through this healing process, but so people can tell the difference in my fight. It’s even stronger.”
