Italian Model Speaks Out for First Time Following Her Ex’s Acid Attack
Italian model and aspiring singer, Gessica Notaro has been left tragically burnt following an attack. Notaro’s ex-boyfriend, Jorge Edson Tavares, allegedly threw acid over her in a revenge attack.
The 28-year-old shows how strong and brave she is by appearing on TV, to courageously reveal her scarred face. She wants to prevent this from happening to others and show she will live on. Gessica bravely revealed her scars on Italian TV channel, Canale 5’s Maurizio Costanzo.
She met Tavares, three years ago when they were both working in a dolphin aquarium and after they split up, he stalked her and got increasingly jealous.

Terrified, she went to the police, but achieved only a restraining order.
Consequently, on the night of the attack, Gessica had been out with friends. While she was out, she saw Tavares creep up alongside the car and throw a bottle of acid into her face.
I DID MY OWN TWO MONTHS OF PRISON. CAN’T LIVE LIFE AS I USED TO. I CAN’T GO OUT IN THE SUN, AM CONSTANTLY TRAPPED IN THIS MASK AND MY FACE HURTS ALL THE TIME.
EVEN WHEN I’M BETTER, I WILL HAVE SCARS ON THE INSIDE FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. I WILL ALWAYS BE SCARED TO GET OUT OF MY CAR AND WALK HOME BECAUSE I WILL RELIVE THAT SCENE AGAIN AND AGAIN.
