The Daily Mail is reporting that 7 year old, Poppy Burge, received a £7,000 voucher for a future Liposuction procedure from her mother for Christmas. This follows and equally inappropriate birthday present from Sarah Burge, a 51 year old plastic surgery addict known as “The Human Barbie”, a £6,000 voucher for a future breast augmentation.
Well so much for little Poppy’s body image and self esteem.
“I put the voucher in her stocking – there’s nothing wrong with that” Ms Burge told the Daily Mail, “She asks for surgery all the time. She wants to look good and lipo is one of those procedures that will always come in handy.”
Burge, who has spent over £500,000 on her own surgical enhancements, that’s about $780,000, is determined to transform her daughter into a super model.
“I see these vouchers as investing in her future – like saving money for her education.” Burge said.
Burge first made headlines in 2010 when she confessed to teaching her then six-year-old daughter to pole dance. And since has been in the spotlight numerous times – for all the wrong reasons.
Last year,in an interview with Closer Magazine, she said in reference to the £6,000 voucher for a future breast augmentation, “Poppy begged me for a boob job, so I gave her the voucher so she can have it after she’s 16, when it’s legal.”
“If she develops naturally big boobs, she can have something else done with it.”
Poppy said in response to the breast augmentation voucher, “I wanted…a voucher for surgery…it was a dream come true. All my friends were jealous. I can’t wait to be like Mummy with big boobs. They’re pretty.”
Sarah Burge’s other children Charlotte, 27, Hannah, 17 and step-daughter Jazzy have already had Botox and are planning further surgery of their own. She celebrated her 51st birthday with a round of surgery including a facelift, bottom implants and liposuction.
“Some people think it’s controversial and I get angry when strangers say I’m a bad mother because I don’t think there’s any harm in giving her this gift.” Said Burge. “Poppy is a normal kid who is good at sports and loves playing outside.””I’m just supporting her and making her dreams come true. Looks are a big part of how our futures pan out – there shouldn’t be a stigma around wanting to look good.”
I have no words left to describe how appalling this is. Tell us what you think in the comments.
