Charice: Botox Treatments for Glee Debut

Pop starlet Charice is gearing up for her debut on Glee – and she’s getting a little help from Botox to look her best.

The 18-year-old Filipino singer underwent Botox treatment and a skin tightening procedure to “look fresh on camera” and to narrow her “naturally round face”. Charice‘s treatments were performed by cosmetic surgeon Vicki Belo, who filled ABS-CBN television about Charice‘s makeover (via AP).

Filming for Glee begins at the end of this month, Charice said.

At first we were skeptical about this rumor — but then we watched the below video. Check it out for proof!

UPDATE: Charice’s rep tells Us Weekly that the Botox was used “to relieve a jaw problem similar to TMJ.”

“It did not hurt; it relieved the pain,” her rep added. “You’ve seen her face – she doesn’t have a wrinkle in it so she wouldn’t need it for cosmetic purposes. The Glee people are thrilled with the way she looks which is why she got the part.”
