Blac Chyna has opened up about the recent reverse cosmetic procedures she's undergone.
In recent months, the 34-year-old model - who now wants to be known by real name Angela Renée White - has been radically altering her appearance, but not in the way you might think.
Instead of adding cosmetic procedures to her list, White has been reversing the effects of many of her aesthetic alterations, including dissolving her facial fillers and removing tattoos.
In an interview with Tamron Hall, White explained why she got so many cosmetic procedures done in the first place - starting when she was just 19 with 'illegal' silicone injections.
"At the time I was suppose to go to school but I didn't have the money [...] so I had to figure out how to get some money and that's when I started to dance.
"I was an exotic dancer for six years from the ages of 18 to 24-years-old and being inside the strip club or any of the gentleman's club, you look around and I'm super young and looking around at the other women [...] and looking at myself thinking, 'This is not it'. This is not going to make the money'.
"So I felt the pressures of trying to hurry up and build my body when I should have just waited until I was older because [when] you're 19, 18-years-old, your body's not developed. My mindset wasn't thinking about that and nobody was telling me right from wrong."
White explained she ultimately started getting cosmetic procedures because of her 'insecurities'.
However, on reflection, she notes: "Being in the industry, you want to have this image of yourself to look perfect and it's no such thing as that."
White's changes to her body resulted in her growing more famous and her subsequently gaining more money too, however, she recently realised she was 'using the sexual part [of her body] to make money and gain from it' and wasn't happy doing that anymore - having since deactivated her $240 million OnlyFans account too.
It was when 'a lot was going on' in her life and she was having 'so many negative things' attached to her 'body, soul and mind' when White found faith - recently getting baptised - which helped spur on her decision to reverse some of her cosmetic procedures.
White adds: "It would affect my day-to-day and just different things in my life."
Agreeing with Hall, White confirmed she recently realised she wanted to 'refocus not on fame' but on her 'faith' and that 'included the transformation of [her] body'.
