In an official statement to the media about breast enhancement surgery, Barrett said, “When someone is considered a s3x symbol there is always going to be rumours and questions about what is real or fake. People should refrain from making snap judgements though when they aren’t aware of the facts. Not everyone with a nice body has done surgery, so that should never be the assumption.”
“I’ve always projected a positive self-image and will continue to inspire young girls to love themselves and always be confident regardless of their body type,” added Barrett.
Barrett confessed that she doesn’t “mind being the centre of attention “and encouraged fans to keep the positive and negative comments coming
Barrett became the subject of plastic surgery rumours online after she posted photos on her Instagram page, which revealed visibly larger bust.
She also added fuel to the fire when she posted a video on her Instagram page with stocks of 100 dollar bills at the Brit Jam party flaunting her body.
The self-proclaimed Curvy Diva is the face of the Magnum 2016 Calendar, has been dominating events as a vibrant hostess.
The Diva took to her Snapchat and Instagram to upload video clips of herself and stylist Keshon Hawthorne laughing at the comments.
“They look stiff and painful… mi Bloodc***t … nuh mek mi belly bottom drop out” Hawthorne said in one of the videos while Barrett laughed.
She also posted a fan made photo of her before and after boobs with the caption “Yanique boob during PNP government vs JLP, she deven need bra again. suh the economy ago stable??” which she followed up with the comment “???????????????I’m done, I swear you guys are killing me
