• Amelia Hamlin said in a resurfaced interview that she underwent breast reduction surgery at 16
  • She revealed one of her nipple piercings became infected and was in danger of "going into sepsis"
  • The model was recently linked to Scott Disick

Amelia Gray Hamlin opened up about the painful experience she went through when she was 16 that led to her undergoing breast reduction surgery.

The 19-year-old model, who was recently linked to Scott Disick, talked about why she needed to have the operation in a resurfaced “Skinny Confidential: Him & Her” podcast interview. Hamlin explained that one of her nipple piercings became infected, adding that it started when she attended Coachella.

“When I eat eggs, I either get strep throat, or I get strep in parts of my body," Hamlin said.

She explained that while at Coachella, she consumed a lot of eggs for breakfast, which was why she had strep. Unfortunately, the infection spread to one of her breasts because she just had her nipples pierced.

“I had a 104 degree fever... my left boob was out to here. I was 16 and had mastitis, whatever the heck that is,” Hamlin said of the condition, which is defined as an inflammation of breast tissue and most commonly occurs in women who are breastfeeding.

“I went to the emergency room, they told me, ‘You have a kidney infection.’ No, I didn’t have a kidney infection. [I] had to go to Cedars [Sinai [hospital’s] special disease doctor and he was like, ‘Yeah, you have strep in your left breast,'” she continued.

The specialist also said that she was 12 hours away from going into sepsis. Hamlin called the scary ordeal “the worst thing I’ve ever been through.”

Moreover, she revealed that the swelling didn’t disappear even after she became healthy again, which was why she had to undergo breast reduction surgery. Hamlin also pointed out that her bosom became “uneven.”

“I'm not going to lie, I've never talked about this, but I had to fully get surgery. I had to get a breast reduction," she said.

“I think my mom’s gonna kill me but I’ve never said that,” she joked.

Her revelations came amid speculations that Lisa Rinna’s daughter is dating Kourtney Kardashian’s ex after they were spotted spending time together multiple times. Recently, Hamlin and Disick were seen hitting a Santa Barbara beach.

In late October, they attended a Halloween costume party, with Disick dressing up as Ace Ventura, Jim Carrey’s character in the 1994 movie "Ace Ventura," and Hamlin donning a colorful bra and pink shorts.
