ly obese woman who weighs 542lbs (38.7 stone) has said she’s ignoring warnings by doctors over her size in a bid to lay claim to having the world’s biggest hips.
Bobbi-Jo Westley, from York, Pennsylvania, currently measures at 95 inches around her thighs but says she’s hoping to eclipse the 99-inch record currently held by LA-based Mikel Ruffinelli since 2013.
Her quest is being wholly supported by her fans online, for whom she poses naked, and while she admits she’s scared of dying, she says her unhealthy pursuit is ‘just something I have to do’.
Bobbi, who lives with her husband, said: ‘My hips are what makes me unique. It’s what makes me ‘me’. When I realised that there where men out there who like my shape, I was kind of surprised.’
She said: ‘I get all kinds of presents and messages from my fans, some of them ask ‘will you marry me?’ which is kind of hard because I’m already married.’
