Tila Tequila Cutting Herself? Photos Shows Deep Scars on Arm
Tila Tequila Was Photographed Out and About With Deep Scars On Her Arm Leaving Some to Speculate She is Cutting Herself
Tila Tequila is known for wanting media attention and a few days ago she was spotted shopping in a rather sexy secretary-type outfit with what could be a scary accessory - deep scars on her arm.
According to RadarOnline, they spoke to a doctor who told them:
“These are self-mutilation scars,” Dr. Joseph Haraszati, who has not treated Tila, told RadarOnline.com after looking at the photos. “It looks like there are some burn marks too. Cutting and burning are a common combination among women.”
It was about 10 days ago that Tila Tequila apparently woke up and said she found her arm gushing with blood, which prompted many to speculate she had attempted suicide. She told everyone that her alter ego 'Jane' had made her attempt suicide, but it was not really her.
Dr. Haraszati says that most of the scars look old and deep cuts such as the ones Tila described would take four to six weeks to heal. He said that some of the scars look newer than others, but he thinks most of them are over a month old. If that is the case they would not be related to what she said was her alter-ego suicide attempt.
One of the marks looks like a possible suicide attempt according to the doctor:
“The self cutting itself is not a suicidal act,” he told RadarOnline.com. “However, there is one line close to her wrist that goes directly across, which is often a sign of a suicide attempt. That one looks fairly deep whereas the others look more superficial.
Cutting can be a way of relieving emotional pain.
“It looks like she uses some sort of blunt object, not a knife, but it still does quite a bit of harm,” Dr. Haraszati continued. “It implies that she’s been doing this for quite some time because cutters tend to progress from dull to sharper objects.”
