By Jack Crone for MailOnline. The woman who set the internet on fire last year by claiming to have three breasts has broken her silence to insist she's not a hoaxer. Jasmine Tridevil became the subject of intense online scrutiny and doubt after extraordinary images suggested she had become the first woman in the world to have an artificial third breast fitted.
In the initial frenzy of interest in Jasmine Tridevil and her purported third breast, lots of linking and re-posting of the same information and images occurred. However, few looked very deeply at the claims made by the woman shown in the images or her agents, or whether such a modification was even feasible. Instead, multiple media outlets took her claims at face value and ran it as a straight news story with no corroboration other than self-provided images that could easily have been faked : they contacted no one who knew or had seen Ms.

When the investigative action news reporter asked if she could " hold it up a little longer so we can get a better shot of it," she stated that she didn't feel comfortable with it just yet.
Now that story seems to be unraveling. But the woman who calls herself Jasmine Tridevil isn't backing down. She also hired a camera crew to film her so that she can star in her own MTV reality show.
Tridevil's story, hoax or not, has reached practically every corner of the Internet. A look at her website's WHOIS data reveals that Tridevil's real name is Alisha Hessler, a Tampa native who grabbed the media's attention in December after making a man who allegedly assaulted her hold a sign at an intersection with the words "I beat women, honk if I'm a scumbag. In return, Hessler declined to press formal charges.
