The North Carolina Beat is learning more about Latavia Washington McGee’s trip to Matamoros, Mexico, for an alleged tummy tuck before she and three of her friends were kidnapped by the cartels.

Latavia Washington McGee is no stranger to the world, having gained viral attention after being kidnapped in March of this year. Three of her friends accompanied her on a trip from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, to Matamoros, Mexico, where she intended to undergo a tummy tuck procedure.

However, sources have been in contact with The North Carolina Beat and said that LaTavia was going to Mexico to establish drug connections on behalf of her husband, Termario McGee. He is currently serving a 10-year prison sentence for trafficking dangerous drugs in Horry County, South Carolina.

In January, Termario pleaded guilty to second-degree trafficking of methamphetamines and second-degree distribution of methamphetamines, according to A*sistant Solicitor Kaitlin L. Cook. In Termario’s initial arrest, the police apprehended him and three others at the Ocean Crest Inn & Suites located at 601 S. Ocean Boulevard. Police reportedly seized one gram of heroin, 31 grams of methamphetamine, as well as Roxicodone and Xanax pills.

Sources tell The North Carolina Beat that McGee’s alleged trip for a tummy tuck was a “drug deal gone wrong.”

And when you really think about it, what woman would take a group of men with her to get a tummy tuck? Seriously,though?

LaTavia McGee and Eric “Wise” Williams were the only two survivors, while Shaeed Woodard and Zindell Brown were found dead.

Sources tell The North Carolina Beat that Termario allegedly sells drugs in prison. He needed LaTavia to bring the drugs back so they could be sneaked into the Kirkland Correctional Institution in Columbia, South Carolina. However, it seems that they messed it up. If you recall, one of the women on the trip, Cheryl Orange, reported that the four friends were missing. According to a police report, she told the police that she believed they were arrested because they liked to do narcotics.
