Baseball legend Sammy Sosa has been looking very different these days!
Last night, Sammy grabbed some attention for his physical appearance at DuJour's Jason Binn and WellNEST Celebrate Miami Beach's Art Basel kickoff party at the Confidante hotel. Sosa’s complexion has become lighter over the years, sparking rumors that he is bleaching his skin.
Rapper T.I. recently shared his thoughts on Sosa’s skin, telling TMZ, “Self-hate.”
Back in 2009, Sosa addressed rumors about skin lightening on Univision Spanish’s Primer Impacto" program, saying, “It's a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and whitens my skin some.”
“It's a cream that I have, that I use to soften [my skin], but has bleached me some,” Sosa emphasized. “I'm not a racist, I live my life happily.”
Of his lighter complexion, Sosa said, “What happened was that I had been using the cream for a long time and that, combined with the bright TV lights, made my face look whiter than it really is.”
