A bikini model who previously sued pop star Chris Brown is helping re-build Ukraine, and is still taking her sexy snaps in the active warzone.
Liziane Gutierrez, who successfully sued Brown back in 2016 following an altercation in Las Vegas, traded her "empty" life of glitz and glamour to help those in need. Her trip to Ukraine has seen the former starlet get her hands dirty with rebuilding homes.
Her volunteer aid work has seen a change of pace for the swimwear model who boasts over a million followers on Instagram. Dubbed "Brazilian Kim Kardashian", Liziane is now in Oblast, which she claims to prefer over life in the United States.

Even with the risk of death which comes from being in an active warzone, Liziane says it is far better than partying in the US. She said the "glamorous life" can feel "empty" at times, with charitable acts giving her something better to do.
Liziane said: "I love my life, but at the same time that glamorous life is kinda empty. I can guarantee that I love way more being in Ukraine volunteering than being at a special gala event in the US.
"I have become a way better person since I started my volunteer work here. Every single smile and thank you is the best payment I’ve received from work in my life." There is still time, of course, to post the odd sultry snap to her Instagram.
She added: "I have a collage that I did with me in a pic that’s considered sexy and me working on construction as a volunteer in Kharkiv – I can definitely do both. I don’t understand what difference it makes if the same person that loves to help also likes to take sexy pics too."
Her time in the warzone has been riddled with worries too, with the star saying she received death threats from Vladimir Putin fans. She has managed to exceed her own expectations though, initially believing she "wouldn't be brave enough" to stick around.
She said: "When I first came to Ukraine at the beginning of the war to volunteer I thought I wouldn’t be brave enough to stay for a long time. I’d be working hearing air raid sirens all the time, Russian missiles hitting not too far away from me, but the more I was helping, the stronger I was getting.
"Of course sometimes we are scared; I was in Kharkiv not long ago and then the Russians attacked out there. But we are trying to bring people back, to try to get the economy back to what it was before the war, and to get families together again."
Her experiences in Ukraine have since convinced the model she would "move here" and that she is far happier in Ukraine than the US. She added: "Here, since the beginning of the war, I fell in love twice. It’s different, I don’t know how to explain."
