Sammy Sosa white Los Angeles, Nov 14 (THAINDIAN NEWS) After denying it multiple times, Sammy Sosa has now finally admitted that he has bleached his skin. Sammy Sosa has in fact also revealed the products that he used that have caused his skin to lighten to drastically. The former slugger admits that he used a skin bleaching cream, a fact he initially denied.

Sammy Sosa appeared on a Univision program and shed ample light on his lightened skin: “I’m doing well, doing well, thanks to God. A little surprised by the tsunami of attention,” Sosa said in a Spanish interview with Univision reporter Tony Dandrades Tuesday. “”It’s a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and whitens my skin some.”

“I use a cream to keep my skin smooth and soft. I apply it before I go to bed. When I was playing for Chicago all those years, I was in the sun a lot for 1 o’clock games,” Sosa initially said. “The flashes (from the cameras) also made my skin look lighter. I’m surprised with the controversy this has caused.”

In the photos, Sammy Sosa’s skin appears multiple shades lighter than usual, which led to all sorts of Internet speculation. “He’s not trying to be Michael Jackson,” former Chicago Cubs employee Rebecca Polihronis, who talks frequently with Sosa.
