Karma! Awuff trouble: Brazilian model who grabbed $70k after she sued Chris Brown for assault is in a coma Following Failed Secret cosmetic surgery
A Brazilian model, who sued Chris Brown for assault, is fighting for her life in a hospital after suffering complications during "unnecessary" liposuction procedure.
Liziane Gutierrez, 32, has been placed in a coma by doctors in Istanbul, Turkey, after suffering a severe reaction to anaesthesia while undergoing cosmetic surgery. Her family claim the operation was unnecessary and they objected to it, but the model had been determined to have the operation done despite their objections.
Without telling her family, she secretly flew to Turkey earlier this month, after surgeons in the US refused to operate and advised her against doing the procedure as there was no excess fat to extract. Relatives said they only discovered on Thursday that Gutierrez was in a life-threatening condition
"Liziane is in Turkey, but not even the family knew that she had travelled there for aesthetic purposes," said a male family member, who didn’t wish to be named.
"She had some kind of reaction to the anaesthesia and to spare her, doctors put her in an induced coma. She had already expressed the intention to do liposuction, but since there was almost no fat, no doctor wanted to perform this surgery."
The relative revealed when doctors refused to operate in the US, Gutierrez booked the procedure in a hospital in the Turkish capital.
"Actually, she didn’t want anyone to know she was having plastic surgery and went to Turkey to do the surgical procedures after doctors in the United States said it was unnecessary and refused to do it," the family member said.
In 2017, Gutierrez won a civil lawsuit against rapper Chris Brown after she claimed he attacked her in a Las Vegas hotel room. She is said to have received around $70,000 in compensation after claiming member of Brown's crew assaulted her while confiscating her cell phone at a luxury party held by the R&B star.
