Tessica Brown shocked social media, when she applied Gorilla Glue to style her hair and could not get it out.
While going through the trouble of having the glue removed, she set up a GoFundMe account. But, unfortunately, she cannot access the money.
In an interview with @nypost, Tessica said the money she planned to donate is currently inaccessible.
“They won’t even release it to me because that many people have called and said it was a fraudulent account,” Brown expressed.
“Every time you look at it, it says it’s under investigation,” the Louisiana native added.
Initially, the account was set up to receive only $1,500 but it exceeded that number and $23,000 was raised.
Since having the glue removed by Dr. Obeng and growing a fan base, Tessica decided to donate the money instead.
“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,” Tessica said.
Tessica also added, “That’s going to be pretty upsetting because who are y’all to say, you know, this was a fraudulent account? For one, Dr. Obeng brought me from St. Bernard Parish to Hollywood, like I seen the sign, to take this out of my head, like this man didn’t have to do none of this.”
A GoFundMe spokesperson stated they are “working with her on the withdrawal of funds.”
The spokesperson also said, “Prior to the withdrawal, she must clearly state on the campaign page how she intends to use the funds.”
According to The Post, Tessica stated she did update her page to reflect how she would use the money. But it hasn’t been updated to show her plans to donate to a charity.
