Tessica Brown has no plans on filing a lawsuit against the Gorilla Glue company, despite recent reports.
Earlier this week, TMZ announced the Louisiana woman hired an attorney and was thinking about taking legal action against the adhesive company. The report said she took issue with the product labels which failed to explicitly warn against usage on hair. Brown, however, claims the rumors are false.
“No, I’ve never ever said that,” she said during an interview with “Entertainment Tonight.” “Again, I don’t know where all of this is coming from. Because at this point, everybody is saying it.”
In the interview, she explained that she only took to social media because she was in dire need of assistance.
“The reason I went to the internet — because I was never going to take this to social media [but] the reason I took it to social media was because I didn’t know what else to do,” she explained. “I knew somebody out there, somebody could have told me something. I didn’t think for one second it was going to be everywhere.”
Brown’s viral video found her explaining her failed attempt at replacing her usual Göt2b Glued spray with Gorilla Glue. It sparked a wave of social media jokes and criticism claiming she shared the video for clout purposes.
“If y’all knew me, y’all know I would never, ever do anything for clout. If y’all knew me, y’all would love me,” she said in response to the allegations. “Everything that y’all saying, call me, talk to me. I will talk to you. I really would talk to a lot of people. I’m not that person y’all trying to make me out to be.”
When asked whether she had regrets of posting the video, the woman replied, “Definitely. I told my son today, ‘I wish I could just, I mean, go back because I’m over it.’”
Brown flew to Los Angeles for a meeting with Beverly Hills-based plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Obeng. She was able to take her ponytail out but is still in the process of removing the glue from her hair.
