The 39-year-old occasionally shares pictures wearing little to no makeup and fans have observed that she has some light blotches on her face, mostly around her brows.
In one posted a few days ago that featured Countess and her daughter, she captioned the clip, “Loving me regardless of my skin Situation” (watch below).

In another image, she stated that her “skin situation” was actually vitiligo when asked by followers.
MadameNoire noted that studies have found a particularly strong association between vitiligo and autoimmune thyroid disorders. Countess has spoken about her own thyroid condition when she was on “Hollywood Divas” and said the swelling impacts her tone when she talks and sings.
This isn’t the first health issue she’s shared publicly. Vaughn was a guest on “The Doctors” in 2014 and talked about suffering hair loss due to the weave/wig glue she used. During that time she denied having vitiligo when the skin discoloration began. She’s also had liposuction to help enhance her weight loss goals.
“I went to the dermatologist but he did not let me know the long-term effects of the infection. I have skin discoloration and people assume I have vitiligo,” she said. “I use makeup to cover up, especially the skin under my eyes. Skin came off of my ears. I draw in my hairline with an eye pencil. I had to go through this to teach my little one, ‘you have to love yourself before anyone else will.’”
