The woman known as Pebblez da Model was captured in Memphis and charged with illegally brokering a butt shot procedure that resulted in the death of an Atlanta woman.
Karima Gordon, 37, died after undergoing the illegal procedure at the Mississippi home of street practitioner Morris Garner, 52, (pictured below) who is not legally licensed to perform such procedures.
Police arrested Garner on April 6, 2012 and charged him with depraved-heart murder, after Gordon’s autopsy revealed she had been injected with cement and other industrial substances.
A depraved-heart murder, also known as depraved-indifference murder, is a legal term for a crime that demonstrates a “callous disregard for human life” and results in death. The charge carries a life sentence.
After Garner was arrested, he named Pebblez da Model as his go-between for women who sought his illegal services.
Pebblez, real name Natasha Stewart, was arrested on January 3, 2013 and charged with being a fugitive from justice in connection with Gordon’s death. Police also took Shannetria Newberry into custody. It is not clear what role she played in Gordon’s death. Both women are being held at the Shelby County jail without bond.
According to the Associated Press, Gordon met Pebbles in New York and paid her $200 for the referral to Garner. The Associated Press located a Twitter page maintained by Karima Gordon with only 1 tweet sent out to a Twitter user named @PebbelzDaModel.
Pebbelz Da Model’s Twitter page featured photos advertising Garner’s work. The photos showed Pebblez with grossly deformed buttocks and hips, consistent with butt shots or butt implants.
Pebblez’s massive 48-inch buttocks made her a hot commodity in rap videos. She was highly favored by rappers who were too dumb to know the difference between a real butt and a fake one.
In this blog post, former Dallas stripper Zeralyn explains how low self-esteem led her to undergo a similar butt shot procedure.
In the video below, Pebblez discusses her favorite sexual positions and her “hustle.”
“When you a hustler you know how to get money, and I get money a hundred different ways,” she said.
