Remember the teenager who tried to sue her tattoo artist? It turns out that the star-faced teenager has confessed she made the whole story up. Previously, Kimberley Vlaminck claimed that she’d fallen asleep while a tattoo artist inked 56 stars on her face, ignoring the requested three stars. As details of her story began to fall apart under scrutiny, Vlaminck revealed the truth.
It’s not as though she decided to come clean on her own, though; she confessed while being secretly filmed by a hidden camera. “I asked for 56 stars and initially adored them,” she said in front of a TV crew. “But when my father saw them, he was furious. So I said I fell asleep and the that the tattooist had made a mistake.”
The tattoo artist in question, Rouslan Toumaniantz, had always maintained that Vlaminck wanted all 56 stars. Threatened with a lawsuit, he maintained his innocence but offered to pay for half the cost of laser tattoo-removal treatment. “Kimberley is unhappy and it is not my wish to have an unsatisfied client,” he’d said. Now he’s taken that offer off the table, but it remains to be seen whether the star-faced liar will keep the ink.
It’s good to see that the truth will out.
