When Big Butts Kill: A Woman Reveals Her Experience With Illegal Butt Injections

Some women get their butts enhanced illegally and actually live to tell about it. We caught up with a 29-year-old New Jersey clothing boutique owner who got shots of an unknown substance to enhance her derriere at some random woman’s house. The woman, Anivia Cruz-Dilworth was arrested late last year for botched surgeries, which landed several women in the hospital with serious complications.

As far as our boutique owner, who chose to remain anonymous for this interview, she has had her bigger butt for over a year and a half without any complications but she regrets having gone through with it despite increased attention.

Here she explains how pop culture’s obsession with women like Kim Kardashian and Jennifer Lopez lead her to getting shot up with some unknown liquid that was in a Poland Spring bottle.⎯Starrene Rhett

What procedure did you have done?

I got injections.

Is that the hydrogel?

We don’t know what it is, she went to jail for⎯it was about 9 people that she did and they ended up in the hospital.

You didn’t even go to a licensed surgeon, this changes everything!

No. We’re really talking about what’s going on in the street right now. I was in NJ. What’s going on over here is that girls want bigger butts. People are doing their butts over here and I don’t know what she was putting in it they said it was something that had to do with cement from home depot and she was injecting it into people and she⎯it was 7 months ago because she got locked up recently and charged wit malpractice. If you look on the Internet you’ll see the article, you’ll see her picture.

So it was someone different who did the British girl who died recently, right?

I know of that but it’s not her but all of them are using the same things to inject and with the British girl it didn’t go well with her body system. It broke down her body and the rest of the girls [in NJ]⎯one they were doing butt injections at the back of the salon and I guess they were finished and as they were walking to the door somebody burst open.

Wow, so you’re one of the lucky ones.

Yep. I’m one of the lucky ones. I don’t know what she put in me and I just had a tragic accident in October where I broke my neck front and back. I broke my c4 and my c5. I was in Miami on vacation and I got in the car with my sister’s friend and he was drinking and he flipped the jeep 5 times and they had to cut me out the back so I don’t think anything abnormal is in me because I had to do two surgeries and they went through my whole body and didn’t see anything abnormal. But some people use⎯like, there’s a guy in Jersey who uses animal fat and injects girls with it and Anivia, the girl who was doing everyone⎯she was using⎯you know the lining of the walls that you use to cement⎯that clear stuff? She was using that. You can find her all over the Internet, just look up “injections,” they’re from New Brunswick. She did about 20 people that got sick.

How much did you pay?

It’s $500.

That must have been a significant step down from what a surgeon would charge.

Yes. If you did the natural surgery it would have been like $3,500.

So why would you go to an unlicensed woman not knowing anything about her or what she uses?

My friend did it and she looked good. I mean, I already have a butt but I guess it was vanity. A lot of people say that people don’t pay attention to things but it’s⎯you know how you see all these videos with women with the big booties? It’s like I need to have a big booty for somebody to want me⎯well that’s the concept I get from the whole thing and that’s where that came in. everybody is seeing all these people with big booties on TV and they want it so I found a way to get it, not knowing that it can make you sick.

Jordyn Woods Talks Being "Bullied By The World" After Tristan Thompson Drama

In her first interview since appearing on Red Table Talk, Jordyn Woods shed light into the bullying that she endured in the aftermath of the Tristan Thompson cheating scandal that may have ended her relationship with the Kardashian-Jenner crew.

As previously reported, Woods was busted kissing Thompson, Khloe Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend, during a party at his house. After her Red Table Talk interview, Khloe attempted to blame Woods for ruining her family, but after receiving backlash, the reality star changed her tune.

During an appearance at Nigeria’s Homecoming Festival last weekend, Woods spoke about how the public backlash gave her an understanding of what it feels like to be a black woman.

“My little sister was bullied in school and I wanted to show her that if I was bullied by the world you can [get through it],” she said in a video from a panel discussion that was published by the Daily Mail. “I understood for the first time what it’s like being a black woman in  society, and how we can be so disrespected and nobody can really understand to that extent until you have to live it.”

The appearance in Nigeria marked Woods’ first trip to the Motherland. Despite being bullied online, Woods has seemingly bounced back stronger than before the Kardashian drama. After her initial interview with Jada Pinkett-Smith, Woods was flooded with support and has reportedly been scoring various business opportunities in light of the incident.

Diddy Opens Up About Kim Porter In Emotional Interview

Diddy is opening up about the day his “life turned upside down.” In the May 2019 issue of Essence magazine, the 49-year-old mogul speaks about hopping into “mommy mode” after the shocking death of model/actress Kim Porter, who was his ex-girlfriend and the mother of four of his children.

“She was unforgettable,” Diddy told writer and producer Dream Hampton. “That day turned my world upside down. Three days before she passed, she wasn’t feeling well. She had the flu, and she sent the kids over to my house so they wouldn’t get sick. One night I was checking on her, and she was like, ‘Puffy, take care of my babies.’ She actually said that to me before she died.”

Diddy graces the magazine’s special 49th anniversary cover alongside his and Porter’s 12-year-old twin daughters, D’Lila and Jessie, as well their 21-year-old son, Christian, and 27-year-old Quincy Brown, Porter’s son with Al B. Sure. The Bad Boy Records founder's tween daughter Chance, who was born weeks before the twins, also appears on the cover along with Justin Combs, Diddy’s 25-year-old son with Misa Hylton.

In the six months since Porter's death, the “unconventional” blended family has been working through the massive loss of their beloved matriarch. Porter, 46, died last November following a bout with lobar pneumonia.

Although Diddy believes that Porter was his “soulmate” the pair endured ups and downs that they were eventually able to “heal” from, he explained.

“The betrayal really affected Kim,” Diddy said in reference to his infidelity, before admitting that he feared that he may lose his “best friend,” at one point in their relationship.

Building “trust” mended the emotional wounds. “There was total trust,” he said. “Whenever I was around her, I felt as though God had his hand in it. I always felt like God had sent her. Nobody could love me the way she loved me, especially as, you know, as crazy as I acted. I mean, she loved me through some real s**t.”

DJ Paul Sues Travis Scott For Copyright Infringement

DJ Paul has filed a multi-million dollar copyright infringement lawsuit against Travis Scott for allegedly stealing his music.

According to TMZ, the Three 6 Mafia member accuses Scott of snatching a portion of the hook from his 1997 track “Tear Da Club Up,” for “No Bystanders” off the 27-year-old rapper’s Astroworld album.

Paul claims that the hooks to both songs are “virtually identical and strikingly similar,” reports The Blast. The lawsuit also notes that the songs sound so much alike that Scott changed his lyrics from to “f**k da club up,” “tear the club up” during his Grammys performance in February, without Paul's permission.

The Memphis native is asking for at least $20 million in damages. However, TMZ reported that Scott reached out to Paul sometime Tuesday (April 23) to potentially work out the legal matter.

The “Sicko Mode” rapper has faced multiple lawsuits over the last two years, including being sued for canceling a music festival performance. Last week, Scott lost a nearly $400,000 lawsuit after being sued for pulling out of a party during Super Bowl weekend. In 2017, La Flame was hit with a lawsuit brought on by a fan who was paralyzed after sustaining injuries during one of his concerts.
