Lindsay Lohan‘s younger sister, Ali, wants to set the record straight about pictures that show her looking skinnier than ever and with what some see as a remarkably different face. Ali has recently signed a modeling contract with Next Model Management.
In an exclusive statement to RadarOnline.com, Ali’s powerhouse publicist, Steve Honig says: “Aliana has never had any type of plastic surgery in her life, nor has she ever considered it. Her success as a model lies with her natural looks and she has no interest in changing that.
“During the past two years, she has gone through a normal teenage growth spurt that has made her taller and slimmer. It has also slightly changed the composure of her face, all of which is typical of what happens to kids in their mid to late teens. It’s what most people refer to as the awkward stage. Ali is growing up, that’s all.”
Ali’s modeling agency told RadarOnline.com: “Contrary to recent reports, I can confirm that Aliana Lohan has not had any surgery.
“As a young girl who is growing up, it’s natural for her facial features to change slightly, and we see this with many of the younger models we represent. Aliana is a beautiful 17-year-old girl who is growing into her face and body, as is the norm for someone of her age.
“We take pastoral care of our models very seriously and encourage the models to maintain a healthy lifestyle and body shape.”
