Thirty-four-year-old Kelly Mayhew was pronounced dead on arrival at the St. John’s Episcopal Hospital where she was taken after a butt injection went awry.

On Saturday, Mayhew and her mother traveled from Maryland to Rockaway, Queens, to receive black market butt shots from an unlicensed person. This was done on the recommendation of a friend of the family. Note: Friends don’t let friends get illegal butt shot injections, especially when the fake doctor’s “office” is located in a basement.

According to Mayhew’s mom, Kelly couldn’t breathe minutes after receiving the alleged silicone shots in her butt. She died in her mother’s arms after several attempts by her mother and the paramedics to perform CPR. As soon as Mayhew started gasping for breath and gurgling, her bootleg plastic surgeon fled the scene – a makeshift office – in an SUV.

    I don’t know where to go with these stories… especially if you are paying for cosmetic procedures that is not performed to cure some disease or health issue.. having a fat azz for guys to disrespect you and fond over is not worth dying for in my opinion.

    I can’t understand why I keep reading stories about this happening. I get that there’s a lot of pressure especially for young women to live up to a certain standard of beauty but why gamble with your life and go to someone that isn’t licensed to perform this kind of procedure. Cosmetic surgery is dangerous enough even when being performed by skilled Dr.’s. Get a second job or take out a loan if it is that important for you have this done. It’s hard to have compassion for a person that does something so foolishly reckless.

    Seeing that she already had ASS, I don’t have any sympathy or empathy. She didn’t even Need That Shit! My question is to her mother, how come you didn’t stop this girl from doing this? Its like, two for the Price of One. Both of you were punished at the same time for this Stupid Decision for Ass Shots! I’m sorry she has to bury her child, but like the old saying goes, “You Get What You Pay For” Obviously, she didn’t Pay Much… so sad.

    These are the things that happens when you’re not happy with what “GOD” have blessed you with. Start loving yourselves for who you are! R.I.P. Kelly!
