An American woman (and presumably a huge fan of Total Recall) has sensationally had a third breast surgically implanted… if you believe her story.
The 21-year-old (who goes by the name Jasmine Tridevil) apparently wants to be a reality TV star… and has begun to chronicle her life in Tampa, Florida via her very own Facebook page. Posting a number of videos to “show the struggles she faces because of her surgery,” it could well be the most astonishing internet hoax we’ve seen in a long time…
“I got the surgery because I wanted to turn off guys,” he said in one her videos. “I know it sounds crazy but I don’t want to date again ever. I still like to feel pretty.”
Of course, the very idea of a triple-breasted woman has already got my hoax-sense tingling… and you only have to pick away at the surface to find that all is not as it seems.
Who Would Do The Surgery?
Even in the good, old United States, I’m not sure there’s any cosmetic surgeon stupid enough to risk everything for the supposed $20,000 price tag. Jasmine claims that she visited over 50 different surgeons before finding someone willing to perform the operation… and even then, he insisted on her signing a non-disclosure agreement. Apparently. But while medical experts told Jezebel that the operation is indeed possible, it’s highly unlikely that any doctor would run the risk of violating any number of codes of ethics.
Her official website
It looks as though ‘Jasmine Tridevil’ has already been busy sorting out her very own official website (now offline) at www.jasminetridevil.com. And the best part? It was registered by a woman named ‘Alisha Hessler’… and Snopes managed to track down her massage business – Alisha’s Golden Touch. Apparently a “provider of internet hoaxes since 2014”.
A Triple-Breasted Prosthesis
The most damning evidence of all comes from gossip-mongers TMZ who have managed to dig up a police report involving Hessler and a stolen suitcase. It looks as though the young wannabe filed a report of a baggage theft with the Tampa International Airport Police Dept. And while the local PD managed to track her suitcase down, the contents were filed as part of their inventory… and it contained “A 3 Breast Prosthesis.”
There we have it – thankfully, it looks as though Tridevil’s Third Breast is a hoax… and we can all sleep a little better knowing that humanity isn’t quite as depraved as we thought. Still, for fans of extra cleavage, there’s always Total Recall.
