Celebrity tattoo artist Keith McCurdy, a k a Bang Bang, has opened up about some of his troubled clients, including Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato.
“Right before I heard [Selena’s] taking some time to work on her mental health, I talked to her,” he exclusively revealed. “She was going to come in and get tattoos with a couple of friends and she seemed in great spirits. She sent me a video describing what she wanted to get.”
But in the end, “Our schedules didn’t match, so we didn’t do it . . . We have a working relationship, so I do respect the boundaries,” he said.
Gomez reportedly entered rehab due to stress over being hospitalized twice in two weeks for complications from her kidney transplant. The pop singer suffers from lupus.
Meanwhile, McCurdy also told “Page Six TV” he hasn’t spoken to Lovato since she entered a rehab facility.
The tattoo guru recalled past conversations about substance abuse.
“It’s relatable. I sympathize with it. She’s really brave . . . I’ve had a ton of conversations with her about substance abuse and struggling through it, growing up and being the center of all the attention in the room and the pressure . . . I haven’t spoken to her since she had her issue, but I sent her a message, saying ‘I love you,’ ” he said.
Lovato was hospitalized for a recent drug overdose after her assistant reportedly found the former Disney star unresponsive at her Hollywood Hills home and called paramedics.
She then headed to rehab, but was seen out in LA over the weekend.
McCurdy’s clients include Gomez’s ex, Justin Bieber, as well as Rihanna and Miley Cyrus.
He recently revealed Bieber has a new face tattoo as part of a couples’ tattoo done for Bieber and rumored new wife, Hailey Baldwin.
