'Illegal' plastic surgeon, 50, charged with manslaughter after butt-lift death of Kim Kardashian fan Christina Gourkani | The Sun
A WOMAN who allegedly posed as a plastic surgeon has been charged with manslaughter after an OnlyFans star died following a botched butt-lift.
Christina Ashten Gourkani, 34, known as Ashten G online, died in hospital last month after having silicone injected into her body in a hotel room in California.
Police say Kim Kardashian fan Christina hired Vivian Gomez, who does not have a licence to practise medicine, to assist her with the procedure.
It is alleged Ms Gomez, from Florida, gave Christina "several injections" of silicone in her buttocks on April 19, according to San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
Ms Gomez, 50, was arrested on April 20 at Fort Lauderdale Airport, and has since been charged with involuntary manslaughter and practising medicine without a licence, reports People.
The coroner’s office is still investigating Christina's death, Wagstaffe said, and a toxicology report is due to reveal what was in the injections.

"It is so scary because you really just never know when you're going to die from it."
