So a hot topic on the blogs right now is the recent photo of baseball player Sammy Sosa (from the Dominican Republic) and his wife, Sonya at a Latin Grammy award event last week.
As you can tell his skin looks completely different in the comparison shot with his wife that was taken a few years ago (pictured below).
Many agree that he bleached his skin, some even say that he is suffering from Vitiligo, but a friend of his recently spoke with The Chicago Tribune and said this:
“He’s not trying to be Michael Jackson. He is going through a rejuvenation process for his skin. Women have it all of the time. He was surprised he came out looking so white. I thought it was a body double. Part of (the photo appearance) is just the lighting. He is in the middle of doing a cleansing process to his skin. The picture is deceiving.”
He said, ‘If you saw me in person, you would be surprised. When you see me in person, it is not going to seem like the picture.’
“People who saw him in person did not react the same way. He can’t believe it is such a big deal.” [SOURCE]
