A rep for the star says the black eye was caused by surgery to remove early stages of skin cancer from her face. Luckily (so says her spokesperson), it was done early enough to prevent further complications.
I'm sorry, but would the procedure, which would remove a portion of the skin, really blacken that whole area around her eye?
Or could it be just an embarrassing case of botox gone bad?
Or something ELSE she doesn't want to explain!?!
