Would You Pay To Look Like Kim Kardashian?


According to reports, a desire to look like reality TV star Kim Kardashian made a 24-year old Claire Leeson from London to cash out $30,000 on a number of cosmetic surgeries.

Leeson started watching ‘Keeping Up With Kardashians’ in 2009 and became instantly obsessed with Kim, and even related to her in many way, one of which was the same number of siblings.

We have the same kind of arguments and things going on,” she told ITV’s This Morning. “I thought she was so beautiful and I really wanted to be like her.”

The transformation didn’t come cheap at all, but she was ready to pay. A breakdown of her biggest expenses looks something like this: more than $8,500 for breast implants, many hundred on teeth whitening, as well as more than $1,700 for just spray tans.

Then, there are the constant wardrobe and makeup expenses to stay up to date with the star’s ever-changing style.

Leeson also revealed the dark reasons for her transformation. The 24-year old came from a long past of bullying.

I was told every day that I was the ‘ugliest thing alive’ and I should ‘kill myself,‘” she said through tears.

Now, she is much happier, having her new look. The trouble is her procedures have already driven her into quite a lot of debt and the Kim lookalike isn’t done yet.

It may not be right, but when I do it, I’m unstoppable and no one can touch me,” she finished.
