Kim Kardashian lookalike's tragic death prompts warning about cosmetic surgery dangers

The reason behind the death of a woman resembling Kim Kardashian has been revealed as horrifying. According to reports, the 34-year-old OnlyFans star, Christina Ashten Gourkani, who had spent a large sum of money on cosmetic surgeries to resemble the celebrity, died due to cardiac arrest caused by silicone injections in her buttocks. The procedure was carried out by an unlicensed practitioner, Vivian Gomez, in a hotel room. Ms Gourkani underwent the risky procedure and tragically passed away in the hospital last month. The Daily Post reported that Ms Gourkani hired Ms Gomez, who does not possess a medical license, for the enhancement. Ms Gomez now faces serious charges for her actions.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe revealed that Ms Gomez administered "several injections" of silicone to Ms Gourkani at a hotel in California on April 19. Ms Gomez was subsequently arrested at Fort Lauderdale Airport in Florida on April 20 and will be extradited to Redwood City in San Francisco. She is facing charges of involuntary manslaughter and practicing medicine without a license, which resulted in great bodily injury.
