A WOMAN who fooled the world into believing she had three boobs now wants to go under the knife and get a third breast for real. Jasmine TriDevil, 25, claims she has found a surgeon willing to perform the unconventional surgery and is hoping to "make history" by becoming the first woman in the world to get a third breast implant. In an exclusive interview with Sun Online, Jasmine - whose real name is Alisha Hessler - revealed that after her hoax in she began wearing her prosthetic boob frequently and loves the way it feels.
A year-old Florida woman who claimed she had plastic surgery to place a third boob on her rack claims said she's no hoaxer. But an incident report filed with the Tampa International Airport Police Department shows that she was carrying 'a 3 breast prosthesis' in luggage stolen from her in early September. If people don't believe it, that's up to them.
Tridevil's story, hoax or not, has reached practically every corner of the Internet. A look at her website's WHOIS data reveals that Tridevil's real name is Alisha Hessler, a Tampa native who grabbed the media's attention in December after making a man who allegedly assaulted her hold a sign at an intersection with the words "I beat women, honk if I'm a scumbag. In return, Hessler declined to press formal charges.
Jasmine Tridevil, a wannabe popstar, shot to internet stardom last year when a picture appearing to show her with three breasts went viral. Her newfound fame divided opinions, with some amazed and others suggesting that her third breast was just a wearable prosthetic. Several news outlets also suggested that she had even reported a "three breast prosthesis" stolen when her bags went missing at Tampa Airport in Florida, US, last year.
Update: A police report about a stolen 'three-breast prothesis' appears to show the story is indeed a hoax. Alisha Hessler reported the unusual item was stolen from her luggage at Tampa International Airport earlier this month, the Smoking Gun reports. An American woman raised a few eyebrows after claiming she had plastic surgery to create a third breast.
Snopes also reports that Tridevil's domain is registered to Alisha Hesslerwho runs a "massage parlor" in Florida called Golden Touch which boasts that it is a " provider of Internet hoaxes since " and a "specialist in massage for three-breasted women.

In the initial frenzy of interest in Jasmine Tridevil and her purported third breast, lots of linking and re-posting of the same information and images occurred. However, few looked very deeply at the claims made by the woman shown in the images or her agents, or whether such a modification was even feasible. Instead, multiple media outlets took her claims at face value and ran it as a straight news story with no corroboration other than self-provided images that could easily have been faked : they contacted no one who knew or had seen Ms. No third party images of Tridevil have emerged, and while she claims to have booked appearances on Jimmy Kimmel Live and Inside Editionno evidence has surfaced suggesting that they or any other media sources have vetted her story.
