Previously, the content creator’s family said that she had passed away following a ‘medical procedure’ which led to a cardiac arrest.

But now, further information has come to light.

According to The Daily Post, Gourkani hired Vivian Gomez – a Florida woman who allegedly does not have a license to practice medicine – to assist her with an enhancement.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe says Gomez travelled to a hotel in California where she is believed to have given Gourkani ‘several injections’ of silicone on April 19.

The ‘unlicensed’ practitioner was arrested on April 20 at Florida’s Fort Lauderdale Airport.

She will reportedly be extradited to Redwood City in San Francisco.

Gomez faces charges of involuntary manslaughter and practising medicine without a licence resulting in great bodily injury.

The coroner’s office is still investigating Gourkani’s death.

Last month, the content creator’s family took to GoFundMe to launch a fundraiser for her funeral which raised $6,607.

The fundraiser’s bio includes a lengthy statement expressing the family’s shock and heartbreak.

They say this is something that will haunt them for the rest of their lives.
