Say it ain’t so…
A gothic hip-hop artist who is facing trial for manslaughter told the court in her testimony on Friday that she used to give Amber Rose butt injections before Rose became famous.
And what’s more, she called the model “a walking billboard” for her illegal (not to mention unsafe) injection work.
Padge-Victoria Windslowe, aka Black Madam (a nickname that harks back to her days running an escort service), was also dubbed the title “the Michelangelo of buttocks injections” because thousands of people have requested her services.
She is charged with killing 20-year-old Claudia Aderotimi, a London breakdancer, with illegal butt injections (specifically, a lethal dose of silicone and Krazy Glue) in 2011.
The 45-year-old took the stand on Friday in Philadelphia and name-dropped some of her clients, including Rose. She allegedly gave Rose multiple injections that continued up until two days before the breakdancer’s death.
About Rose being a spokesperson for her butt injection services, she said, “[Rose] brought a lot of girls from VH1.”
During a cross-examination, Black Madam admitted that Rose’s ex-boyfriend Kanye West even drove her to one of the procedures when they were dating. Furthermore, she said that she was supposed to perform a “correction” on rapper Nicki Minaj, but it never happened.
Black Madam claims she has been performing silicon injection services for almost 20 years after learning it from a doctor in Thailand and in South America (the one who performed her sex-change operation), she said Thursday. She added on Friday, “I told (clients) I’ve been doing this for years, I’ve done it to myself and my friends, and I was trained by a nurse up in Washington Heights (in New York City) back in 1995,”
She performed the cosmetic “surgery” on exotic dancers, trans women and musicians who were interested in filling out, and uses the same products on herself. However, silicon injections are incredibly risky, if not deadly.
Aderotimi and some friends travelled to Philadelphia to have Windslowe give her the injections. They did the procedure in an airport hotel, and when Aderotimi started having trouble breathing and became disoriented, Black Madam left the scene. The dancer died from a pulmonary embolism when the low-grade silicon spread to her heart and lungs.
Windslowe added to the court, in response as to why someone would choose her over a licensed practictioner, “I was the best, and I don’t mean that to be cocky.” She charged about $1,000 to $2,000 depending on how much silicon is used.
Neither Rose nor Minaj have yet to comment about the claims.
