An OnlyFans star dubbed the "Mexican Kim Kardashian" has died following a botched butt-op procedure.
Joselyn Cano, 30, who lived in Newport Beach, California, died on December 7 after travelling to Colombia for the surgery, reports claim.

The service included an open casket with angels on either side and a photo of Cano with "Joselyn" written on the backdrop.

Due to coronavirus restrictions, only dozens of people attended her send-off.
A message played during the stream on the screen read: "Joselyn entered this life on Wednesday, March 14, 1990. She entered into Eternal Life on Monday, December 07, 2020.
"On Behalf of the Family, We Thank You for Joining us. Please Keep the Family in your Prayers. God Bless You and Your Family."
Cano was a model, influencer, and fashion designer who amassed more than 12.8 million followers on Instagram.
The news of her death was broken on social media by fellow influencer Lira Mercer.
"OMG Joselyn Cano died in Colombia getting surgery. That's wild," she wrote.
Joselyn's death has sparked an outpouring of tributes from her fans and fellow influencers on social media.
"What the f**k? Joselyn cano died from getting a (Brazilian butt lift)? That sh*t is crazy," one wrote.
"Rip #JoselynCano. So young and so beautiful," said another.
Influencer Daniella Chevez said: "Rest in peace beautiful! A queen of (social media). Blessings to heaven for you Joselyn Cano."
The surgery in Colombia was reportedly the second time Cano had had a Brazilian butt lift.
Concerns have previously been raised by medical professionals about risks associated with the procedure.
Complications occur when fat is accidentally injected into a patient's vein and enters the bloodstream, forming clots.
One study found that the death rate from the procedure was around one in 3000, but data suggests it could be as high as one in 500, USA Today reported.
