Blac Chyna wants to be known by her birth name, Angela White, after getting breast and butt reduction surgeries
Blac Chyna now wants to go be known by her birth name, Angela White.
It comes after the reality star recently underwent breast and butt implant reduction surgeries.
"It's getting back to myself," she said.
Fresh off her recent breast and butt reductions, Blac Chyna has said she now wants to be known by her birth name, Angela White.
The reality star revealed earlier in March that she'd had breast and butt implant reductions. She also revealed that she'd had her facial fillers removed.
White said the surgeries were the first steps in "changing my life and changing my ways."
In an interview with Forbes published on Thursday, the 34-year-old star said the next step is adopting her birth name.
"Well, it was given to me by birth, but mostly for me it's getting back to myself," she said. "Because you know being in the entertainment field, everybody always calls me, 'Hey Blac Chyna, Chyna, Chyna.' Nobody ever calls me Angela."
"So sometimes I would kind of like forget who I am, because it's always about the brand, brand, brand, and not the person," she said.
White added that though she wants to go by her birth name, it's "definitely not the end of Blac Chyna," but more a clear separation between brand and person.
"I think now it's more the separation of it," she said. "Like, if I'm performing or things like that, that's Blac Chyna. But if I'm home and I'm with the kids or if I'm doing my business stuff and I'm doing deals, that's Angela. Like how we are sitting here and having a conversation, this is Angela.
"Now, if we go, and we gotta get glam, hair, nails makeup, we got costumes, that's definitely Blac Chyna."
Elsewhere in her interview with Forbes, White revealed what inspired her recent changes.
"I just started working out, sobriety, and my bible, that's it. Those are the three things that I have been sticking with for the past seven months," she said.
"And just over that time, it has shown me like, 'OK, who are you? What is it that you want to do? What is the example that you want to set? Like, how are you feeling? Is this really you?' We put on hair and makeup and designer clothes to cover up something. And I want to put my insecurities aside and really step into the light. Like, my own light."
White said that while she was anxious to make the changes at first, the support she has received from her fans has made her realize she is making the right decisions.
"Everybody has been supporting it," she said. "So I'm like 'OK, this gives me the courage to keep going and see how far I can go.' So, it makes me feel really good. I'm glad I did do it."
