Cardi B on the Time She Got Illegal Butt Injections
For $800, Cardi B received butt injections in an apartment basement in Queens, New York.
According to an interview with GQ magazine, Cardi stated that having a bigger butt helped her make more money as a stripper. Plus, her boyfriend at the time cheated on her with a girl who had “a fat, big ass.”
Brazilian butt lifts tend to cost around $9,000, so her $800 procedure could be considered a “steal” if not for the unbearable pain and complications Cardi went though. “They don’t numb your ass with anything,” she said, “It was the craziest pain ever. I felt like I was gonna pass out. I felt a little dizzy. And it leaks for, like, five days.”
The doctor who performed her procedure was eventually thrown in jail after one of her patients allegedly died on her operating table.
In the end, it is better to be safe than sorry if you decide to go under the knife for such cosmetic procedures.
