An unusually large-breasted and wide-hipped Instagram model nicknamed the “human blow up doll” who underwent over 100 plastic surgeries reportedly died on April 18.
Kristyna Martelli, a model known on social media for her extreme bodily decisions, has reportedly died at 23 years old.
“[RIP] beautiful I still can’t believe it,” tweeted Amy Anderssen, a friend of Martelli’s.
While her death has yet to be officially confirmed at this point, a Martelli Facebook fan page also paid tribute to the model.
“Yesterday, the most beautiful and amazing woman in the world passed away,” Martelli’s Facebook page read about the model, who has over 600,000 Instagram followers. “We will always love you. You are gone but not forgotten. REST IN BEACH KRISTYNA MARTELLI.”
Rumors are now circulating across various social media platforms about Martelli’s death. Many think Martelli, who Dnoble Daily reports first went under the knife at age 17, died as a result of her surgeries.
“[Martelli] passed away a few days ago while having a procedure done,” reads The Industry On Blast’s Instagram page. “During surgery she had a seizure and died.”
Such speculation is sparking fierce debate over plastic surgery, with many deriding Martelli for her enhancements.
“There should be a law against this when ppl have … plastic surgery more than 10 times!” a Facebook user wrote on Ent! Breaking News’ page. “Smh why, why, RIP.”
Others thought Martelli suffered from mental illness and low self-esteem, and that the doctors should have been more careful.
“But the doctor though,” another Facebook user commented. “He should have realized a few procedures ago that she had mental issues and turned her down for further work.”
One grief-stricken Facebook user went so far as to write a poem to the late model about her alleged lack of self-love.
“Now that you’ve gone All that’s left is a Bra of holes All that’s left of the dreams you hold, Butt of Gold, Cherry lips you told And the memories of what love could be If you were pleased with what u see,” read some of the poet’s lines.
However, Martelli denied having self-image problems.
“The reason of all my surgeries is simply because I wanted to bring my body looks to another level and I regret nothing about any of them,” she once wrote on her website. “I was never unhappy with what I looked like, I was just simply amazed by all these girls with these plastic looks and went and bought myself anything I needed to look like them!”
“I developed a passion to enhance my body to become the definition of plastic’s perfection,” she added. “I just absolutely fell in love with it, it’s not just a passion, it actually became my hobby, my life.”
