It has been reported Instagram model Kristyna Martelli, nicknamed the “human blow up doll”, passed away on the 18th of April. The 23-year-old known for her large breasts and wide hips was reportedly the subject of more than 100 plastic surgeries.
“RIP beautiful I still can’t believe it,” tweeted Amy Anderssen, a friend of the model.
Although her passing is yet to be officially confirmed, her Facebook fan page has already paid tribute to Martelli.
“Yesterday, the most beautiful and amazing woman in the world passed away. We will always love you. You are gone but not forgotten. REST IN BEACH KRISTYNA MARTELLI,” a statement on the Facebook page reads.
The passing was followed by rumors circulating across various social media platforms about the cause of Martelli’s death, with many viewing the excessive surgical procedures as the main cause.
“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.”
Understandably, the news has sparked a hot debate over the implications of plastic surgery. Numerous social media users have criticized Martelli, who according to Dnoble Daily first went under the knife aged 17, for her life choices.
“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.
Other users have speculated that the model suffered from mental illness and low self-esteem and lay the blame firmly at the doctors’ door.
“The doctor should have realized a few procedures ago that she had mental issues and turned her down for further work,” another Facebook user commented.
One grief-stricken fan even went so far as to write a poem to the late model.
“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.”
However, Martelli has denied having self-image problems in the past.
“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 for enhancing my body to become the definition of perfection,” she once said. “I just absolutely fell in love with it, it’s not just a passion, it actually became my hobby, my life.”
