A Gallery Of Black Celebrities Accused Of Bleaching Their Dark Skin

Here we are in 2017 and some people still think “light is right” in Hollyweird. This week we have reality star Milan Christopher accusing his ex of bleaching his skin. Remember Miles Brock from Love and Hip Hop Hollywood’s first season?

Welp, Milan is saying the music artist gave himself the Sammy Sosa treatment. It wouldn’t be farfetched. We’ve had candid celebs, like Azealia Banks, publicly admit to lightening their skin for one reason or the other. Take a look.

Do you think Milan is telling the truth?

Well, Miles wouldn’t be the first to do it. Hit the flip for a list of more celebrities accused of bleaching in the past.
