Be mindful of who you co-sign. Pebbelz Da Model, born Natasha Stewart, says she was just helping out the late Karima Gordon when she referred her for silicone injections in her butt.
However, Gordon died from the procedure, and a jury has found Stewart, famed for her 48″ booty, guilty of culpable negligence manslaughter.
Reports Yahoo! News:
Stewart, of suburban Memphis, Tenn., was found guilty Friday in Jackson, Miss., in the death of 37-year-old Karima Gordon of Atlanta.
Authorities say Stewart, an adult entertainer also known as Pebbelz Da Model, took $200 for a referral to the alleged injector and falsely represented that the injector was a nurse.
Stewart testified Friday that Gordon was insecure about her body and wanted help fixing previously botched buttocks enhancements. Stewart said she connected Gordon with the woman performing the injections to help her out, not for money, but she said Gordon insisted on paying her.
Stewart had been charged with “depraved-heart” murder, defined as a “callous disregard for human life” resulting in death, which carries a maximum penalty of life in prison. She also had been charged with conspiracy to commit depraved-heart murder.
The trial lasted two days and it took the jury four hours to find Stewart guilty. Stewarts was also found guilty of conspiracy to commit culpable negligence manslaughter and faces up to 20 years in prison for each charge.
