From a victim of abuse to a prisoner and now a pop-culture phenomenon, Gypsy Rose Blanchard has been through it all.

On Tuesday, May 7, the 32-year-old showed off her shocking transformation via Instagram, as she shared a split photo comparison featuring a present-day selfie and a picture of herself in 2009 at age 18, when she was still suffering from her mom Dee Dee Blanchard's Munchausen by proxy illness.

'Gypsy Rose: Life After Lockup' premieres on June 3.

In the photo from roughly 15 years ago, Gypsy could be seen smiling in a wheelchair outside of a hospital. She wore a Tinkerbell sweater and held onto two stuffed animals.

At the time, her mother had been lying about her age and falsified medical records to pretend she had leukemia, muscular dystrophy, vision and hearing impairments and seizures.

Because of Dee Dee, Gypsy was wrongfully treated for these diseases — which led to the former prisoner losing her teeth. Gypsy's mom would also shave her head to further convince people of her fake cancer diagnosis.

Alongside the likely triggering photo from way back when, Gypsy attached a recent post-prison selfie, which showed off her new nose job and fresh tattoo she had done last month during a romantic getaway with her boyfriend, Ken Urker.
