Derek BlanksAfter a series of surgeries earlier this year, K. Michelle is celebrating the news that now she is healthy and can have children.
With the caption, “I’m doing the holy dance,” she commented on Instagram, “Guess who was FINALLY given the go ahead to carry my own babies? ME! Man, It’s been a journey. No surrogate needed. Embryos can come out the freezer.”
“I’ve been so to myself and in prayer and thought,” the former Love & Hip Hop Hollywood star continued. “Now headed out to open doors on another business. It feels like Christmas, I’ve been so scared! Babies and business, LIFE AINT THAT BAD.”
Michelle has regularly documented on social media her health problems after receiving butt injections six years ago. In April, she said needed steroids to walk and was rushed to the emergency room four times. Michelle then needed a six-hour surgery to remove silicone that had spread to other parts of her body, and she later required two blood transfusions.
The “V.S.O.P” singer is featured in the BET Truth Series documentary, Killer Curves: Bodies To Die For, which investigated the popular and sometimes fatal trend of body modifications in the black community. These modifications, used to exaggerate curves, are often referred to as black market cosmetic surgery, as they are usually not performed by licensed medical professionals.
In the film, Michelle shared her struggles with body image, and explained why she decided to get the procedure in the first place.
“After I got my butt shots I felt like I had confidence, but then [I had] headaches all the time,” she said. ”I couldn’t even walk.”
