Slick Woods attended the Puma x Balmain clothing launch on Thursday, shortly after it was revealed she was battling melanoma cancer.

The 23-year-old model, real name Simone Thompson, casually announced that she was undergoing chemotherapy on Instagram on Wednesday and reporters at The Shade Room subsequently claimed she had told them she was suffering from stage three melanoma cancer.

And Slick proved that she wasn’t letting her health battle get her down when she made a public appearance at the launch of fellow model Cara Delevingne’s clothing collaboration with Balmain’s Olivier Rousteing and sportswear giant Puma at Milk Studios in Los Angeles.

Dressed in black trousers, a baseball cap, sneakers and a denim jacket, she styled the look in an interesting way by securing the bottom buttonhole to the top button, exposing her shoulder, midriff, and green mesh vest top.

The launch was also attended by models Alessandra Ambrosio and Shanina Shaik and stars including Amber Heard, Eva Longoria, Bella Thorne, Machine Gun Kelly, and G-Eazy, who all sported pieces from the boxing-inspired collection.

The Savage x Fenty model referred to her medical treatment when she shared a photo of herself sticking out her tongue while out with her boyfriend Micky Munday and some friends.

“How I feel about chemotherapy, shout out to everyone that gotta go through it #atleastimalreadybald,” she wrote in the caption.

As fans expressed their shock at the news and sent their well wishes, Slick shared a picture of a pouting child and urged her followers to “stop treating me like a victim”.

Slick gave birth to a son named Saphir, who she shares with model Adonis Bosso, shortly after walking the Savage X Fenty show in September 2018.

Machine Gun Kelly would visit Tommy Lee to seek his advice about parts of the script for upcoming Motley Crue biopic The Dirt.

The actor/rapper, real name Richard Colson Baker, plays the drummer in the biographical drama, based on the band’s 2001 autobiography The Dirt: Confessions Of The World’s Most Notorious Rock Band, alongside Douglas Booth as Nikki Sixx, Daniel Webber as Vince Neil, and Game of Thrones star Iwan Rheon as Mick Mars.

Machine Gun Kelly shot the film in Louisiana earlier this year and admitted that he would regularly seek Lee’s advice over points in the script he wasn’t sure about.

“I would pull up to his house. I remember throwing the script in his lap one time and was like, ‘Dude, this is such a weird… this couldn’t have gone down like this.’ He was like, ‘Nah dude, it was just like this,'” he recalled to Billboard.

“And I’d be like, ‘Well, say it how you said it’, and he said it, and it was like, ‘That’s exactly how I would have said it.’ We’re so similar, it wasn’t too far from home for me.”

The 28-year-old acknowledged that there is probably somebody who looks more like Lee than he does, but he is certain he has the right attitude for the job.

“It’s about the aura,” he explained. “I’m sure there’s someone who looks identical to Tommy… but you can’t be an actor and play Tommy Lee, dude, you have to be a rockstar. There was only one fit for that role.”

To prepare for the part, the Bad Things hitmaker took drum lessons and the cast were brought down to New Orleans a month before the shoot and lived together, so they felt like “best friends” when production actually began.

“Aside from the obvious of taking drum lessons and taking that seriously, I just went and lived the lifestyle that he was living,” he added.

Besides The Dirt, Machine Gun Kelly has completed work on sci-fi thrillers Captive State and Bird Box, and is currently filming Big Time Adolescence. After that, he plans to focus on music career once again.
