The 18-year-old social media sensation originally gained popularity following her 2016 visit on Dr. Phil. On Oct. 10, she posted to Instagram to address recent comments over her looks. The actress also discussed the cosmetic treatments she had already undergone.
“I received a 1/2 syringe of lip fillers a couple months ago, as well as veneers, Sculptra, and silicone in my buttocks,” Bhabie, whose actual name is Danielle Bregoli, said beside a collage of herself over the years. “I’ve stated that several times to you.”
“What is the point of my applying cosmetics if it does not improve my appearance?” she inquired. “I’m only 18; why would I undergo full face reconstruction when I have no idea how I’m going to appear as I age?”
The viral celebrity responded less than a week after she published an Instagram video of herself clutching numerous Chanel bags on Oct. 4. That post drew a flood of comments from social media users who speculated on whether she’d just undergone cosmetic surgery.
“Only when I wear makeup and/or wigs do you guys claim I had surgery and compare me to pictures of me at 13,” she said, alluding to her age when she appeared as a guest on the daytime talk program. “Nobody else seems the same at 18 as they did [at] 13, 14, everyone has developed a shine. You’ve all grown up, and you’re all aware of what’s going on “‘.
This is not the first time Bhabie has taken direct aim at remarks regarding her beauty. In April 2020, the artist also turned to social media to deny intentionally changing her skin tone to resemble Black, a practice dubbed Blackfishing.
She finished her message by promising to be honest if and when she decides to get plastic surgery “When I do get my nose fixed, I will gladly inform you. However, the amusing part about me is that I am terrified of being placed under anesthesia, and so would never do so for some looks unless it was a life-or-death scenario or anything for my health.”
