T.I. Reveals His Theory Behind Sammy Sosa’s Unrecognisable New Appearance

TI and Sammy Sosa

The former baseball star sported a dramatically different look this week.

T.I. has shared his thoughts on former baseball superstar Sammy Sosa's dramatic transformation.

TMZ caught up with the 'Whatever You Like' rapper to ask him what he thought of Sosa's startling new look after the former sportsman stepped out with significantly lighter skin this week.

The 48-year-old first appeared with a lighter complexion in 2009, and people have since questioned whether or not he has been bleaching his skin.

Sosa himself said in the same year that his whiter appearance was the result of a skin-softening cream.

However, T.I. believes that Sosa's shocking new look is a result of something else entirely.

"It's self hate," he told TMZ.

The Dominican-born former Chicago Cubs player appeared to be in London this week celebrating his birthday with his wife, Sonia Sosa.

After images of Sosa emerged online, fans took to Twitter to express their shock and dismay at his appearance.

Sosa is yet to comment on the reports.
