Josie Cunningham, 23, made headlines in March when she got the UK’s National Health Service to pay for her breast implants. However, now she’s changed her mind.

The Leeds native is asking taxpayers to foot the bill for her implants to be removed and reduced, reports the Mirror. The mother of two claims that she is unable to find modeling work due to the negative attention surrounding her artificial boobs.

“I don’t want to spend my life being known as the girl with massive NHS boobs, so having smaller implants is the only option,” she said. She also thinks that the NHS is responsible for this surgery as well since it provided the means for the first one.

“I’m looking into charities that could help, but I think it’s down to the NHS because they made them so big,” she explained. She alleged that people would follow her in the street, calling her a slut and demanding their money back.

She is an aspiring “glamour model,” meaning lingerie or topless modeling. It’s unclear what type of charities would come to her rescue.
