Well, the woman who claims she added an extra breast to chase away men is making it big. Last night she was interviewed on local CBS affiliate WTSP in Tampa and that story has gone everywhere!
Her story that started on social media, has spread all over: Entertainment Tonight, US magazine New York magazine and TMZ.
Here’s the deal: A 21-year-old Tampa massage therapist who calls herself “Jasmine Tridevil” apparently loves the number 3 so much she claims to have added a breast.
She reportedly paid $20,000 for the surgery and claims she signed papers to never reveal the doctor who performed the surgery.
“I figured people would be skeptical, but it’s true. I recorded the surgery and it will be on my show,” Jasmine Tridevil told WTSP.
Take a look at the YouTube video has now has had more than 3 million views!
During an on-location interview, WTSP reporter Charles Billi asked for a flash of the breast, to check out the goods himself. After all, he needed to authenticate the claims.
Jasmine Tridevil gave him only a quick peek. So he asked for another look, to which she responded: “I’m not ready to do that right now because it’s in episode six of my show.”
Yep, Jasmine Tridevil is apparently shopping a reality show (who isn’t these days).
And the light bulbs go off. Fraud?
Well, Snopes says her claim of having three breasts is FALSE.
The site, which separates fact from fiction, says the woman is a model with a questionable past.
“Photos on a modeling page linked with one Alicia Hessler closely match the circulating images of Jasmine Tridevil, and profile pictures on Hessler’s YouTube page strongly resemble the woman in the “third breast” photos,” Snopes says. “It’s also worth noting that the JASMINETRIDEVIL.COM domain was registered by someone named Alisha Hessler, and Jasmine Tridevil herself bears a striking likeness to Tampa-area massage therapist Alisha Jasmine Hessler. (A web listing for “Alisha’s Golden Touch” massage web site now bears legends identifying her as “Provider of internet hoaxes since 2014” and “Specialist in massage for three breasted women.”)
“I got it because I wanted to make myself unattractive to men. Because I don’t want to date anymore,” she told Real Radio 104.1 in Orlando. “Most guys would think [the extra breast is] weird and gross. But I can still feel pretty because if I wore makeup and cute clothes, I can still, you know… feel pretty.”
True or not, Jasmine Tridevil’s story copies Hollywood.
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s 1990 film Total Recall features a woman with three breasts.
