An Iranian Angelina Jolie who was apprehended and sentenced to 10 years has been released from an Iranian prison on Thursday 17th December 2020.
The teenager whose real name is Fatemeh Khishvand in an effort to make herself look exactly like Angelina Jolie reportedly had 50 surgeries done in other to achieve her aim.
Fatemeh Khishvand is a social media influencer, who is known for sharing heavily distorted images of herself online was released on bail just days after she was handed down a 10-year jail sentence over her social media activity, according to local media reports.
She had already been in jail for 15 months when she received her sentence.
Her Instagram following had amassed over 500,000 people – and led to her being dubbed the “Zombie Angelina Jolie”.
According to The Guardian, she was arrested and charged with blasphemy, inciting violence, gaining income through inappropriate means and encouraging youths to corruption.
While she was later cleared of two of the four charges, her lawyer announced last week she’d been handed down a 10-year sentence.
Back in April, her lawyers pushed to get her freed from jail after claims she had contacted coronavirus.
Journalist Masih Alinejad confirmed on Twitter that Tabar had been released, following “media pressure”.
“Today Iranian teenager who posted heavily distorted images of herself online and was jailed for 10 years has been freed after massive media pressure,” she wrote.
