Reality star Katie Price was reportedly "furious" as she struggled to access her iPhone using the device's facial recognition feature.
The mum-of-five, 41, is said to have "smashed the [phone] screen in anger" when it wouldn't unlock because of her swollen, post-surgery face.
Speaking to The Mirror Online, a source claimed the ordeal left Katie "furious".
They told the publication: "She couldn't remember the passcode and since her surgery the phone has refused to accept facial recognition.
It was a bit scary, it was confirmation that her appearance is dramatically changing.
"She finds it funny now but initially it was a bit scary, it was confirmation that her appearance is dramatically changing.
"She's smashed the screen in anger because she keeps making to many wrong attempts and the phone locks her out [sic]."
ED! has contacted Katie's reps for comment.
They said: "It's as if Katie has an addiction to going under the knife.
"It's becoming so obsessive, and it's clear she needs some help – now. Katie is forever saying that she looks in the mirror and only sees the next thing that needs fixing."
The pal also claimed that Katie's other friends have told her how good she looks but it doesn't seem to register, adding: "If she can't see it and she won't listen to anyone, then we are begging her to get a bit of help."
Katie was said to have been in intense pain and was even "terrified" her ears were going to fall off.
Her old friend Kerry Katona spoke out about Katie's changing appearance recently, admitting that seeing snaps of her looking bloodied and bruised "was pretty awful".
She wrote in her New! magazine column: "Seeing pictures of my friend Katie Price after her recent surgery was pretty awful. Those wounds!
"And her ears look really big. I imagine they're swollen from where the face gets pulled up, but, that said, the last time I saw her they looked weird. I love Kate to bits but I think she's crossed the line."
The two pals were believed to have fallen out but Kerry recently celebrated her birthday with Katie, putting the rumours to rest.
