Keeping up her looks turned fatal for 34-year-old Christina Ashten Gourkani, known as Ashten G. She held an incredible resemblance to reality star and businesswoman Kim Kardashian. Ashen actually earned money as a celebrity lookalike for the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star.
She recently passed away at a California hospital reportedly after a sudden cardiac which followed her latest cosmetic surgery to fulfill her aesthetic goals of being a celebrity lookalike.
Christina’s death was detailed in a recent GoFundMe made by her family, who say they got a call last week from another family member, frantically screaming that she was dying … something they say “instantly shattered our world.”
“In the early morning hours at approximately 4:31am on 4/20/2023 our family received a tragic phone call from a family member who was frantically screaming and crying hysterically on the other end of the line…Ashten is dying…Ashten is dying…,” the GoFundMe read. “A phone call that instantly shattered our world and will forever haunt our family for the rest of our lives. After arriving at the hospital shortly after the phone call our family continued living a nightmare as we were informed that her health and wellbeing had continued to decline in a downward spiral for the worse after suffering from a cardiac arrest. Her sudden and tragic passing is currently being investigated as a homicide related to a medical procedure that took a turn for the worse.”
According to the San Mateo County’s District Attorney’s Office as of May 1st, 2023 Ashten hired Vivian Gomez, 50, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., to assist her with her buttocks enhancement. Gomez does not have a license to practice medicine.
Gomez traveled to a Burlingame hotel and gave Gourkani “several injections” of what is believed to have been just silicone on April 19, according to DA Steve Wagstaffe. The coroner’s office is still investigating Gourkani’s death, Wagstaffe said. Shortly thereafter, Gourkani began having health issues, and according to her family’s GoFundMe, she died in the early hours of April 20 from a heart attack.
Ashten isn’t the only one who has been seeking plastic surgery enhancements in the last few years. More Black women are getting it done too.
