Urban legend: Cher had her lowest pair of ribs surgically removed to make her waist look slimmer. In 1988 Paris Match magazine published a story claiming that she’d had the procedure done. From there the story circulated to newspapers and magazines all over the world.

Is it true?: No. Neither Cher nor anyone else could have the procedure done even if they wanted to, because no such procedure exists.
