Island Boys Star Flyysouljah Reveals Details Of Fight Which Reshaped His Face
| Last updated
One half of the Island Boys, Alex Venegas, has revealed details about the fight which reshaped his face.
The social media star revealed that the reason behind his facial irregularity was because he was so young at the time of the fight, that his flexible tissue in his nose, or cartilage, hadn’t fully developed, and was thus damaged.
Venegas said in the video clip: “Good question. Matter of fact, when I was a child, actually very, very young, I’d say like a toddler or whatever the case might be, I got into a fight.
“You know when you’re so young, your cartilage,” he explained, pulling on his ears and nose, “is very, very fragile, and I got into a fight, broke it, and never got it fixed.”
The TikToker, however, isn’t ashamed of his differences, and refuses to call on plastic surgery to correct it: “It’s a flaw of mine that I just capitlise over. I feel like it makes me, gives me more of that image that I like.”
“I got the money to fix it, I don’t think I’ll fix it, though.”

NHS England states that damage to cartilage is “a relatively common type of injury”, but most often involves the tissue around the knees, hips, ankles and elbows which are more likely to be damaged either through wear-and-tear or a sports injury.
They also explain that minor cartilage injuries can heal on their own, but more severe injuries to the tissue may need surgery.
The conversation about his childhood fight comes as the Island Boys were recently criticised for a resurfaced video, in which one of the Island Boys were reported to assault a woman and then began crying after she retaliated.
Fans took to the comments section of Venegas’ most recent video, writing comments like “I’m a cryland boy” in order to tease the TikToker for the resurfaced clip.
Others wrote, “who saw the vid of him crying” while another asked, “so is it you or your brother who hit that girl and then started crying when she hit you back”.
The resurfaced video has since been removed from TikTok.
The two men behind the viral fame have previously been revealed to have a fairly serious criminal history.
Speaking on the No Jumper podcast, Alex explained how he and his fraternal twin would always get into trouble with the law while they were growing up in Florida.
They revealed on the podcast that they had charges related to burglary, robbery, and drugs.
