She may have gotten rid of her permanent do, but that didn’t stop her from getting a new permanent smile. Gorilla Glue Girl Tessica Brown is still flaunting the perks of going viral as she shows off new teeth via her instagram today.
The journey for Tessica is clearly one that will go down in social media history. It started with a simple Tiktok in February explaining why she hadn’t changed her hair in over a month due to using industrial adhesive, to her now making a small fortune off merch on popping up on TMZ everyday.
The Louisiana woman found her true saving grace is Beverly Hills doctor Michael Obeng. The surgeon created a special procedure through trial and error that allowed him to figure out how to remove the glue. He also performed the $12000 procedure for free, allowing Brown to do other things with the $24k she’d raised on go fund me. She instead decided to donate it to Obeng’s charity.
Shortly after, Obeng saved her again when she decided to do a “mommy make-over” with him. The popular package which includes liposuction, Brazilian butt lift and new breast, required a pre operation screening. It was during this screening that Obeng found lumps in both Brown’s breast that he was able to remove, possibly saving her life.
While its unclear if Obeng is also responsible for her new teeth, one thing that is for sure is that Brown is making a fortune off her misfortune.
She’s a full out social media star at this point.
People took to social media to comment on her new teeth and continued coverage weeks after having the glue removed.
Commenters had mixed reactions to the new smile. Some users began alleging GoFundMe donations paid for her teeth with comments like:
“Welp y’all paid for her teeth😂💀”
“That was thanks to all them donations”
“That’s the money from gofundme..😂”
Some social media users praised the social media star for getting a bag and immediately fixing her teeth.
