Who here remembers when part-time pop singer Ciara was temporarily disabled? The Atlanta transplant raised eyebrows when she attended a Thanksgiving charity event in a wheelchair back in the day.

This photo was taken by celebrity photog Prince Williams at a Thanksgiving party at the world famous Cascade skating rink in Atlanta in 2011. Ciara, then 25, required a wheelchair after undergoing successful surgery to repair a condition called hammer toes on both feet.

According to her publicist back then, Ciara was one of the organizers of the event and she didn't want to disappoint the children by not showing up.

Also pictured are Ciara's longtime friends Polow Da Don, left, Ludacris, 2nd from right, choreographer Devyne Stephens, 3rd from left, and Big Boi of Outkast, far right.

  • joel adams

  • pure_rachet

    I had the same surgery on both feet but didn’t require a wheelchair. I can say my feet will never work the same!

  • Mz_Opinionated

    Is this when she got her feet fixed? I had to look online when I continued to see all this nonsense about her and "chicken feet and bat comparisons".

  • Alextra Ballard

    Sooo that explains Ciara fvcked up feet

  • MsPam

    Goodies is the only song I like of Ciara’s music. I only like it is because of Petey Pablo

    Ciara has aged well it's been nearly 10 years since. I really hope she doesnt go down same path as Jada Pinkett Smith and let bitter people convince her she needs surgery and "enhancements". Jada is looking more like her true self again recently though. Ciara is a pretty woman, gifted dancer and writer slightly above average singer compared to all the pop singers but she seems extremely impressionable and all about image at times.

    Ok so...to all women out there considering freezing your eggs or ivf, DONT!! Keep your babies inside of you!!! Freezing your embryos is not a good option ivf is a rich mans joke and its not NATURAL!! A young couple in California gave birth to somebody elses child!!! Smfh!!! Yes our eggs die off by 40 & older. but you can naturally fertilize your own babies and keep them fresh all on your own through a healthy diet!! Not some stupid freezer where ur embryos can get switched up also one clinic a year ago lost power and millions of embryos died!! Never completely trust scientists and doctors always trust GOD first!! If its planned for you to have a healthy baby you will!!!

  • Let them eat cake

    25 and hammer toes already??

  • Queen B

    With surgery and botox....she better not lol

    huh?

  • thatonechick_

    Them feet was raggedy! lmao

  • Yui

    Dancing

  • sunni_daze

    That's her.

  • Gloria

    This switch up happened at ONE IVF clinic out of how many existing IVF clinics? Many families with reproductive issues have greatly benefited from this and for you to suggest that those who can benefit from this NOT pursue this option based off of the actions of ONE IVF clinic switch up is just ignorant.

  • Nita Pie

    When she was bow wow girlfriend or is this 50's era cause her 50 was together for a few years

  • Alextra Ballard

    ?

    Cdfu ??? at a Wisdom toe...wdf

  • MsSapphire9800

    Well this should end the facial plastic surgery theory about Ciara...the thinner she get the more structure her face look.

  • CoTToNCaNDie SWeeTAsGolD

    OMG I thought ya'll was bullshyttin' when ya'll said that girl had something done on her feet!!! I just died laughing at the comment on the other post that said the foot surgery didn't work!! https://media0.giphy.com/media/fdYfG04FjU7jmQWiku/giphy.gif

    Shabadaba dweeb dweeb dweee

  • Renee26

    I know a few couples who have children from successful IVF and the babies look like their parents. To each their own. It's hard to tell someone who struggles to carry a child that "it just isn't meant to be". Where there's a will there's a way.

  • Renee26

    Damn!

  • Coy little wink

    Lolololo

    Lolololoooo

    My friend had successful IVF her tubes were blocked. Thankfully we all have free will hun

  • Coy little wink

    I've never looked at her feet up close. According to y'all the surgery was not a success...

    Polow blew up and disappeared

  • Coy little wink

    Looks like she had a nose job to me...

  • dazja

    Is Demetria still with Roger Bob?

  • Dasright

    I have identical twins through IVF and they look just like my husband. Healthy, happy babies. They were born 9 weeks early and only spent 5 days in NICU.

    Docs make accidents, regardless of the type so should we never go to the doc and just "trust God"?

    It’s sad how folks love to demean unproblematic black women. I’m glad to see Ciara’s growth in the industry and life

  • lovelygamour

    yeah, ciara is annoying but i dont understand why she gets so much hate. and i`m one of the people who called her a tryhard for trying to lock in MR FUTURE.

    i put ciara and bowwow in the same category as far as the hating goes. the hate makes no sense. especially bowwow cause all your favorite rappers love him. they copy that man even when he hiding. and everyone tries to bed his women. lol.

  • lovelygamour

    i couldve sworn she left and cameback with a new nose. wasnt people laughing about it?

  • Coy little wink

    Lol...

  • lovelygamour

    I agree with you but i will add that ivf should be for people with health issues. ivf goes wrong for a lot of people and its just swept under the rug. couples have spent their life saving on ivf just to get pregnant the regular way a year later.

    ivf babies also have health risk that arent spoken about.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I bet. That man has hits!

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    ugly feet matters ??????????

  • Desi

    Dey ain't repair shit!!! I've seen dem toes in recent pics, and they need to re-break dem thangs just to straighten em' out.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    They not demeaning it’s true she had the hammer toes

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    I don’t like Ciara

  • Lovely1

    Wait. I thought the story was that she did this while dancing. lol She was saying that in interviews about some dance move she tried to do. Silly me for believing that.

  • Logan Roberts

    Sigh.

  • Nhere

    Yes, I remember commentary on one of the blogs revealing open toe footage, could've been this one. Soon thereafter she had broke foots.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    At least she fixed them.

  • Howard Alum ?

    Wow, I remember Ciara went under surgery to shorten her toes ? thanks Sandra ?

  • ???TheRider???

    Can we get a before & after for comparison?

  • millz

    ???

  • T Young

    Where is the pic of her hammer toes then? She actually had her pinky toe shortened on each foot. She never had hammer toes. Celebs currently with hammer toes include Beyonce, Oprah, Kelly Rowland, Naomi Campbell and many more.

  • speakinmymind

    I agree. Spice's comment is ignorant, callous and irresponsible. Some thoughts are better kept in your head.

  • Guess Who

    LMMFAO.

    Sandra...what prompted this fuckery full o' subtle - but not subtle - shade?

  • Guess Who
  • ???TheRider???

    Thank you. I now remember this from a few years back.
