Model Slick Woods has stunned fans by revealing she's undergoing chemotherapy for an undisclosed illness. The Fenty Beauty star, real name Simone Thompson, made reference to the medical treatment in a post on Instagram as 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," the 23 year old wrote in the accompanying caption.
As fans expressed their shock at the news and sent their well wishes, Slick took to her Instagram Story timeline to urge followers not to pity her, declaring, "Stop treating me like a victim."

She stopped short of sharing further details about her condition, but she received a few supportive messages from famous friends like actress Taraji P. Henson.

"You are already on the other side of this heathy and strong like it never happened. I adore you," the Empire star commented, while Power actress La La Anthony wrote, "Love u sis ".

Representatives for Slick, who famously went into labour moments after walking off the runway for Rihanna's Savage x Fenty fashion show in September, 2018, have yet to comment on the model's health issue.
