Tessica Brown, who went viral for cementing her hair with
Gorilla Glue, claims the GoFundMe she set up is now under
investigation and she can’t withdraw the funds, which she plans
to donate to charity, she told The Post Wednesday.
The Louisiana native, who’s now out of the sticky situation and
rocking a fresh, natural look, set up a GoFundMe early on in her
plight for help with medical bills and buying wigs but now that
she’s decided to donate the money, the company won’t let her
withdraw it, she explained.
“They won’t even release it to me because that many people have
called and said it was a fraudulent account,” Brown said during
a Zoom interview.
“Every time you look at it it says it’s under investigation.”
When Brown first set up the fundraiser, she only asked for
$1,500 but it ended up skyrocketing to over $23,000. Now that
she’s cemented her viral fame with a celebrity management team
and a merchandise line, she decided she wanted to give back the
“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,”
Brown said, referencing the celebrity plastic surgeon who fixed
her ‘do and the south Louisiana locale she calls home.
“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.”
Obeng, a Ghana native, runs the “Restore Worldwide” foundation
and travels overseas to perform constructive surgeries on people
in developing countries who wouldn’t otherwise have access to
the procedures. Obeng didn’t charge Brown for the procedure to
remove the glue from her hair and she said it was the doctor’s
benevolence, and other donors, who made it possible for that to
“I can show my appreciation for his foundation and also I can
help the next person,” Brown said, saying she wants to donate
$20,000 to Obeng’s charity.
The rest of the cash she wants to use for families in her parish
who she personally knows have been struggling and could use the
money to improve their situations.
“No matter what I do it’s a problem,” Brown, who’s been accused
of putting the glue in her hair as a social media stunt, griped.
A GoFundMe spokesperson told The Post in a statement they “are
in touch” with Brown and “working with her on the withdrawal of
“Prior to the withdrawal, she must clearly state on the campaign
page how she intends to use the funds,” the spokesperson said.
Brown said she did edit the page to say she was using the money
for expenses related to the ordeal but it hasn’t been updated to
reflect her new, charitable plans.
