Tobias Strebel, who spent over $100,000 in an attempt to look like his idol Justin Bieber, has been found dead in a hotel room in Los Angeles.
Tobias (who went by the name Toby Sheldon), 35, had gone through numerous surgeries including hair transplants, lip surgery and a chin reduction to look like Bieber. He had appeared on TV shows My Strange Addiction and Botched to discuss his procedures.
He was originally reported missing in Hollywood on August 18, but was sadly found dead in his Motel 6 hotel room three days later. His cause of death has not yet been confirmed.
Like the pop star, Toby had also recorded his own music. Speaking on My Strange Addiction about his desire to look like the singer, he said:
“What brought me to Bieber was the whole package… the full cheeks, the full temples, the bright open eyes, the full luscious lips… his full head of hair. [He’s] just extraordinarily beautiful.”
Our thoughts go out to Toby’s family and friends at this sad time.
