Tessica Brown finds lump in breast during enhancement consultation with Gorilla Glue doc
Brown believes the incident with Gorilla Glue led her to this important discovery
Tessica Brown, who the internet christened the “Gorilla Glue Girl” after accidentally using the construction adhesive on her hair, sadly has a new issue to deal with.
Gina Rodriguez, Brown’s manager, confirmed to TMZ that during a pre-surgery consultation for a breast augmentation with Dr. Michael Obeng, the man who successfully removed the Gorilla Glue from her hair, lumps were discovered in her breasts.
Obeng discovered masses in a mammogram earlier this week. The masses have now been removed surgically and are currently being tested for cancer.
According to TMZ, Brown, 40, who is a mother of five, reportedly believes the incident with Gorilla Glue led her to this important discovery and is grateful to Obeng for detecting the masses early.
On Friday, Brown posted a video on Instagram promoting a partnership with Obeng and Aesthetic Medicine. They will be giving away a breast augmentation and liquid facelift in Beverly Hills, California.
The more than $20,000 that was raised in a GoFundMe for Brown has since been donated to Obeng’s Restore Foundation to provide reconstructive surgery services for people in need.
Since going viral, Brown has created merchandise which features her face. The products include shirts, sweatshirts, and sweatpants and can be found on her new website “Tessica: Bonded For Life.”
Brown has also hired an agent from Gitoni, the firm that represents celebrities like Blac Chyna, JWoww, Khadijah Haqq, Natalie Nunn, and Jessica Dime. The New York Post reported that Brown also signed with BMB Talent.
