Gorilla Glue girl Tessica Brown gets 17 proposals, invites Porsha Williams to wedding
Tessica Brown revealed that after the unfortunate February incident, she has received at least 17 marriage proposals — both from men and women
After getting a lot of media attention earlier this year for a huge goof-up, Tessica Brown aka Gorilla Glue girl is back. Recently, she appeared on ‘The Domenick Nati Show’ and claimed to have received more than a dozen marriage proposals. Brown had became famous in February 2021 after she put herself in a very sticky situation by applying Gorilla Glue on her hair to set them. The Louisiana-based woman, who is also a TikToker, then shared a video on her account warning others.
She shampooed her hair several times, and also went to the emergency room, but to no avail. However, eventually, a Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr Michael Obeng came to her rescue and 'de-glued' her hair with a medical-grade glue dissolver. The procedure reportedly costs $12,500 but Dr Obeng did not charge anything. After the surgery, he had said, “When I found out this was a reality, you can only feel compassion and sympathy for Tessica. The surgery went well. Tessica is doing well. She's awake. The hair crew is doing her hair.”
'Gorilla Glue girl' Tessica Brown FINALLY gets hair 'unstuck' after LA's Michael Obeng performs free surgery
On Tuesday, June 22, Brown went live on ‘The Domenick Nati Show’, where she revealed after the February incident, she has received at least 17 marriage proposals — both from men and women. When the host Nati asked her why she used the glue on her hair. She chuckled and said that it was the nearest to her and she was not able to find her regular setter. The mother-of-six also said that she has been using the glue for her Christmas decorations and they always fall down. She didn't think for a second her hair would get stuck.
During the live show, Brown also said that not just Beyonce’s stylist offered her wig, she was also contacted by Porsha Williams, Jesseca Dupart, Moniece Slaughter, and ‘The Real’. She disclosed that Williams even sent her a wig. In total, she received 43 wigs. Besides these, Brown shared she has no idea about any lawsuits against TikTokers or Gorilla Glue. She added that there are no pending lawsuits. However, while opening about her personal life, she said she will be getting married in 2021 and plans to invite Williams to her special day.
Earlier, Dr Obeng had described the situation of Brown to PEOPLE when she arrived at his office. He said, “When she came to us, she had a lot of anxiety, and the first goal was to curb that anxiety, make her less anxious. Imagine what it's like to have your scalp constantly under tension for a whole month. The hair was all matted down and stuck to the scalp, and you can't move it, it's like wood or glass.”
He added, “You should have seen the tears of joy when she could finally run her fingers through her hair. That young lady has been through a lot, and I'm glad that she has finally has this, and that she is finding relief, and she's gone on to her normal life now.” Brown had also expressed her happiness at the time and stated that plans to "embrace" her natural hair. “I just want everybody, the women my age, the women older than me, the little children, my children — we need to really realize our hair really don't make us. If I would've just left out of here without spraying [the Gorilla Glue], it would've gotten messed up, I wouldn't have went through all of this. It's not worth it at all,” she noted.
