Woman charged with manslaughter in botched butt lift death of Queens 22-year-old
EXCLUSIVE: Cops charged Tamira Mobley of Wood-Ridge, N.J., with manslaughter and felony assault for the death of Tamara Blaine, of Jamaica, Queens, who was found in the Liberty Inn Hotel in July suffering from a seizure. The victim’s mother said she tried to report her daughter missing to cops. ‘When I looked for her, nobody was there for me. That’s just the way it is. Black people only have value when they die,’ Lola Blaine said.

A 22-year-old woman who died under mysterious circumstances in a Manhattan hot sheets hotel last summer was the victim of a botched buttocks lift — and now a New Jersey woman has been charged in the death, police sources said Tuesday.
Tamara Blaine was suffering a seizure when police were called to the Liberty Inn along the West Side Highway in the Meatpacking District the afternoon of July 8. Blaine, who lived in Jamaica, Queens, died a short time later at St. Luke’s Hospital.

The medical examiner ruled Blaine’s death a homicide Oct. 7, noting the puncture wounds in her buttocks. The official cause of death was “a systemic silicone emboly due to a cosmetic silicone injection of the buttocks,” officials said.
On Monday, cops busted self-described cosmetologist Tamira Mobley, 28, of Wood-Ridge, N.J., and charged her with manslaughter and felony assault. Sources said she killed the victim during a botched butt lift using silicone.
Mobley, who has a previous arrest for forgery in the Garden State, was arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court on Tuesday. Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Bruna DiBiase ordered Mobley held in lieu of $100,000 bail.

On the day of the incident, Mobley used her credit card to pay for a room at the Liberty Inn, which bills itself as “your rendezvous for romance” and has hourly rates. About two hours later, she called the front desk and told an employee to call 911 because Blaine was having a seizure.
he suspect stayed until the Emergency Medical Service arrived but fled before police came. Detectives later tracked her down using her charge card.

Blaine’s mother, Lola, of Jamaica, Queens, lashed out in anger about the case Tuesday.
She said she tried to report her daughter missing to cops but was told nothing could be done because the victim was an adult.
“When I lost her, nobody helped me,’’ the mother said. “When I looked for her, nobody was there for me. That’s just the way it is. Black people only have value when they die.”
Lola Blaine said her daughter was in good health when she last saw her.

“I went in person to the precinct to explain to them. Nobody was there for me,” she said. “They don’t give a damn. They look at her like she’s less than a dog.”
The mom said that when police did respond to her home, they asked if her daughter was mentally retarded or unstable. When told she wasn’t, they said, “There’s nothing we can do. She’s 22,” the mom said.
Lola Blaine said she only learned her daughter was dead when she got a bill from the morgue.
“What am I going to say about her now that she’s dead?” the mother added. “Only someone who has the same problem can understand what I’m going through. Nobody else.”

Friends described Tamara Blaine as someone who liked fashion and always took care with her appearance.
“She liked to look good,” said Monet Robinson, 22. “She liked to look nice. She always switched her style up.”
According to the website for the J. Foster Phillips Funeral Home, which handled her service, Blaine attended grammar school in Flatbush and Saint Albans, then went to St. Joseph’s and Forest Hills high schools.
She had a child, Amari Bermudez, and was taking college classes.
“As a part-time freshman in college, she always remained level headed and determined to make a life for her son,” the site said. “We can only hope that our future generation will have the drive and determination that Tamara did.”


  1. Everybody wants big butt breast wrinkle free face, and don’t want to go to a professional. This thing is getting out of hand wa know man no attracted to natural anymore. Me want a man run in pon this if u guys r not attracted to us ladies that don’t do up our bodies why all these women doing all this to themselves. Now her son is motherless, because of her stupidity.

    1. Remember men are visual meaning they look look look look look see chirps uckf den stat again some women are insecure and want men attention so they will enhance parts of their body so man can look look look………….

  2. i think they should free this woman because she did nothing wrong.

    she neva hold a gun to di gal head an juk har wid di poison inna har batty.

    if dem still naah learn seh fi happy wid weh god give dem, or go to a professional, den dem fi tek weh dem get, sickness, botched bodies and death. kmt

  3. Some people thought process just different!
    LUNDUN if you didn’t have the money to get a authentic but job
    & you hear about a link & you end up dead would you not want justice.????
    This dirty bitch is a self proclaimed cosmetologist not doctor or nurse
    She didn’t hold a gun to her head but she gained that young lady’s trust & also assured
    Her she would be ok!!!!! The dirty whore know what she was doing .. It is immoral yuh know you don’t have the proper training etc to do butt injections you know what the consequences are but sake a money u gone tek ppl life & that is ok!! Ah shoulda 1 trillion dollar bail !!!! This batty shit a get outa control!!!! I wish it would just stop this is soooo sad!!! I blame dem dutty pussi strippers & rappers people wise up have a mind of your own! Even breast augmentation can lead to cancer. Do not put anything in unu body that is foreign !!!! Ah sa! Accept in uself nuh man gal dead left her poor Likkle son this grieve mi

    1. mrs finson esquire u are indeed right madam when you so rightly pointed out my thought process as being umm…different.

      in you book that you just so passionately wrote, you mad it even clearer that my somewhat different thought process is reasonable considering the very description you attributed to said “cosmetologist.”

      NO!! i would not go to a “link” to put anything in my body, because when it comes to my health and my body, i believe in paying double, just so the healthcare provider sees the value i place on my motherfu-cking life and well being.

      i would go to a “link” for a phone, a designer bag, a designer shoe, an expensive bedroom set, a car, a house, a bus pass, a… you get my drift?

      so my lord, again i say your lordship, set that woman free, she did nothing wrong.

      1. Of course she did something wrong, and by your own words, “she put poison inna har batty”, that’s why she has been charged and is on 100k bail. If it wasn’t illegal she would have a shop advertising and registered as a legitimate business.

        Blaming the victim is like blaming smokers who have cancer. If the product you sell is unfit for human consumption then damn straight you should be held accountable.

  4. She did everything wrong because if this was a real doctor they would be charge,,, go to jail for life I say,,, go to school like every other doctor and then you could perform on humans. Vanity is a sin!

  5. I don’t think she did anything wrong, if you want batty u ave 2 option. 1)get u lazy ass up and do some squats or 2)go to a licenes butt surgion and spend your money. My mother always tell me anything cheap nuh good u can’t mek a cobbler do a professionals job, these young lady do not value dem life. A which type a medical procedure tek place inna hotel room. Sorry that a life was lost but a hope it open up people’s eyes.

  6. RIP to the deceased…but common sense tell you to be cautious when you are doing these minor cosmetic surgery. Look how ugly and nasty the self-proclaimed professional look. She should never have been allowed to touch my hand much less batty to inject…..straight prison ti har too damn wicked
