New 'Glee' star Charice used Botox for pain, not wrinkles, rep says
At a recently held press conference in Charice's native Philippines, the young star admitted to a skin-tightening treatment and Botox "to look fresh on camera" for the Fox hit.
It's a questionable procedure, given the star's age -- Botox is widely used to temporarily eliminate wrinkles -- but her publicist says the injection wasn't a vanity move.
"She's had Botox for some jaw pain she's experiencing," the rep said in a statement.
People points out that Botox is occasionally used in the treatment of TMJ. Charice will play a fellow student and competition for Lea Michele's Rachel Berry.
