Melanie Griffith Skin Cancer ScareNews — By nygal on December 20, 2009 at 5:29 am
Melanie Griffith set Hollywood tabloids into a fury this week when she was spotted with a big black eye caused by surgical procedure, says rep.
The “Working Girl” star, who is no stranger to surgical procedures, left a hair salon on Wednesday with a fairly sizable purple bruise on her right eye, PopEater reports.
Spokeswoman Robin Baum said Griffith, 52, had surgery to remove some early signs of skin cancer from her face, which resulted in the black eye.
The procedure was reportedly performed early enough that future complications should be prevented.
Griffith made the gossip rounds earlier this year when she checked into rehab for a “routine” stay.
The former addict, who is married to Antonioa Banderas, stayed at the infamous Cirque Lodge in Utah in August.
“She is there to reinforce her commitment to stay healthy,” her rep told Entertainment Tonight at the time. “This is part of a routine plan that was designed between her and her doctors years ago.”
