Natasha Stewart also known as Memphis hip hop entertainer and model, Pebbelz Da Model, who was found guilty and convicted of manslaughter in the fatal butt injection case of Karima Gordon, has been sentenced to 7 years in prison for her role in death of the victim.
On Friday, Pebbelz Da Model was handed down a 7 year sentence for allegedly accepting $200 to refer victim Karima Gordon, 37, of Atlanta, to get illegal silicone butt injections administered by unlicensed nurse Tracey Lynn Garner (Morris Garner).
The 40 year-old Stewart, known in the hip hop industry for her enlarged buttocks on her small frame, admitted to referring Gordon for butt injections, but stated she was simply trying to help an ‘insecure’ person get what they wanted.
Gordon, after receiving injections allegedly by Garner of a fake silicone similar to cement, died of silicone embolism in the lungs just one week after receiving the injections in March 2012.
Judge Bill Gowan of Mississippi sentenced Stewart to 7 years with 8 years suspended for manslaughter while at the same time ordering her to serve 5 years for conspiracy to commit culpable negligence manslaughter.
Pleading for mercy in her sentencing, Stewart expressed regret for Gordon’s death saying her “deepest condolences” go out to the victim’s family and friends and added that she was “deeply sorry.”
Stewart faced up to 25 years but received a lighter sentence for never being in legal trouble before.
