Transgender hip-hop star sought in butt injection death case

A woman from London died in Philadelphia early last week after receiving cosmetic injections in her buttocks and investigators now consider a transgender hip-hop singer as a person of interest in the case.

The singer, who goes by the name "Black Madam," has apparently been identified as the person who gave the botched silicon injections to 20 year old Claudia Aderotimi who died Tuesday.

Authorities say the illegal procedures took place inside a South Philadelphia hotel room. Aderotimi apparently complained of chest pains and shortness of breath sometime after the procedure.

Three other British students accompanied her to the US for the procedures. Police say one of the women had been to US with Adertomi before. During that visit, they say the women had butt injections and Aderotimi wanted the procedure again.

Her friend had hip injections and suffered no medical complications according to police.
