Harris made the announcement on her Instagram in a post October 24 (which has been taken down), writing:
“I permanently changed my eye color with Brightocular and loving it! Thank you Dr. Montasser Menif for the amazing experience and for making my dream come true. I hated wearing contacts just for the color and it made my vision blurry. Blessed to say my vision is perfect after my ice-gray implants.”
The announcement followed rumors that began after Harris made a promotional appearance for her new VH1 reality series sporting the new eye color.
T.I., for his part, was mum on the change before the news broke, telling Power 105.1 FM, “I don’t know. I don’t know. If she’s coming up here for something maybe you can ask her but I don’t know.”
While the Instagram post and corresponding photo have since been deleted, pictures and screenshots of the message can be found on Necole Bitchie.
