Rep: Charice Gets Botox to Relieve Pain, Not for 'Glee'
Contradicting report the 'Note to God' singer underwent Botox injections to change her appearance for the FOX hit series, her rep says the only cosmetic thing she's done having her hair colored.
Filipino star did not use Botox to narrow her "naturally round face". In response to report claiming the 18-year-old singer underwent Botox injections and an anti-aging procedure "to look fresh on camera" before making her debut on "Glee", her representative has clarified that the procedure was "absolutely not cosmetic."

Ruling out the cosmetic purpose as the reason behind the treatment, her rep explained the Botox injections were taken for muscle pain in her jaw. To Us magazine, the rep claimed the singer, who made her big break on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" at age 15, has "a jaw problem similar to TMJ," and the treatment "relieved the pain".

"You've seen her face - she doesn't have a wrinkle in it so she wouldn't need it for cosmetic purposes," Charice's rep stressed further. "The Glee people are thrilled with the way she looks which is why she got the part." The rep additionally noted that the only cosmetic thing the "Note to God" singer has done is having "her hair colored at the Brad Johns Studio at Elizabeth Arden" in New York City.

Earlier, celebrity cosmetic surgeon Vicki Belo told ABS-CBN television that Charice underwent a 30-minute Thermage skin-tightening procedure and Botox injections to make her "naturally round face" more narrow. In the same interview, the singer said the treatment was part of her big preparations for her debut on season two of "Glee".

Charice is expected to film her part for the FOX hit musical comedy at the end of this month. She is taking on the role who will give serious competition to 's Rachel Berry. "All people will be anticipating how will Charice look? Is she good enough to pit against Rachel Berry? So of course there is tremendous pressure," she said of her part.
