GORILLA Glue girl Tessica Brown found lumps in her breasts just weeks after an operation to remove the adhesive from her hair.
Brown's doctor found the lumps while doing a pre-surgery prep for breast augmentation earlier this week, according to her manager.
Brown, known online as Gorilla Glue girl, rose to fame after a posting a TikTok video asking for help after she used the sticky adhesive to set her hair.
The viral video led to Brown getting a celebrity management team, a merchandise line and even a sketch on Saturday Night Live.
Her manager, Gina Rodriguez, told TMZ that Brown's doctor, Dr Michael Obeng, discovered the lumps while they were doing a prep for a "mommy makeover," which would include a breast lift and implants.
Dr Obeng also performed a free operation on Brown to get the Gorilla Glue out of her hair.
During the pre-surgery procedure, the doctor discovered a lump in each breast and quickly sent Brown to have the lumps removed.
Her manager said they are now being tested for cancer.
Brown said that she believes the whole Gorilla Glue ordeal led her to the moment when the lumps were discovered and could be removed before any disease progressed.
After the Gorilla Glue incident, Brown set up a GoFundMe page to help raise money for wigs and to deal with the strong adhesive that was stuck to her head. It has since raised more than $23,000.
Last week, social media users began accusing Brown of fraud and using the viral video to gain fame and trick people into donating to her cause.
Her GoFundMe page was locked and the company said it was under investigation.
After Brown underwent a free operation by Dr Obeng to remove the Gorilla Glue from her hair, she pledged to give the donations she raised to charity.
But she claims the funds have since been frozen – telling the New York Post, "They won’t even release it to me because that many people have called and said it was a fraudulent account.
"Every time you look at it it says it’s under investigation."
The Louisiana native claims jealous online critics have disputed her intentions to distribute the funds, resulting in her GoFundMe access being blocked.
It comes after she hit back at social media users trolling her and suggesting she faked her predicament to win clout on TikTok.
"I’m like, we can donate to Dr Obeng… and the rest of that I’m going to donate it to three families in St. Bernard Parish," Brown explained to the Post.
She planned to "show my appreciation for his foundation and also I can help the next person," by donating $20,000 to Dr Obeng's "Restore Worldwide" foundation.
The Ghanian doctor travels to developing countries to perform procedures patients do not have access to.
Brown planned to bung the rest of the cash to help struggling families in her local parish, but complained: "No matter what I do it's a problem."
