Sahar Tabar, who went viral after sharing distorted ‘Angelina Jolie lookalike’ photos online has been jailed for 10 years.

Sahar Tabar became a viral sensation several years ago after she shared photos to Instagram, suggesting she had dramatic cosmetic surgery procedures in a bid to look like her idol, Angelina Jolie.

The Iranian 19-year-old, real name Fatemeh Khishvand, was reportedly jailed for her activity on social media, having been charged with corruption of young people and disrespect for the Islamic Republic.

The Guardian reports that Khishvand’s lawyers confirmed the news after she was initially faced several charges, including blasphemy, inciting violence, gaining income through inappropriate means and encouraging youths to corruption. The report states that the teenager confirmed she had been cleared of two of the four charges against her but was hoping to be pardoned on the remaining.

The report states that Khishvand’s lawyers asked for her to be bailed and pointed to her age at the time she committed the alleged offences.

An old report from Hollywood Life states that Khishvand later revealed that the images were faked using a mix of dramatic makeup and photoshop.
