In this pure case of obsession, a British woman by the name of Claire Leeson has taken her obsession with Kim Kardashian so far that it’s caused her to go into debt.
The 24-year-old during an interview with ThisMorning(pictured below) revealed she has spent almost £20,000 (N5m) to look just like Kim Kardashian, splashing out on everything from boob jobs and bum padding to shoes and clothes.
"When I left school friends would tell me that I had a resemblance to Kim. So, I watched Keeping Up With the Kardashians and realised I had the same amount of siblings and that we have the same kind of arguments and things going on. I thought she was so beautiful and I really wanted to be like her."
Leeson has had a boob job, teeth whitening, hair extensions, nails, spray tans and has purchased a ton of shoes, clothes and makeup. And due to her lavish spending, Claire, who spends £4,500 on her hair extensions alone, has accumulated over £6,000 in serious debt.
But according to her, these drastic steps she has taken to appear more like the Kim, 33, are an attempt to gain self-confidence after being severely bullied in her childhood.
"I've had my teeth whitened, then I wanted my boobs enhanced... and with pictures [of Kim] explained to my surgeon that I wanted to look like this. I also wear bum padding - it's a silicone base. Pants with silicone inside. They feel very real... and hopefully will end up having that done because my bum is never going to be as big as Kim's is.’
I do work but the job I do doesn't pay as much... so it's credit cards and debts up to my eyeballs. I've had [bailiff] letters, but I just ignore them and I say to myself that I will pay them - but as soon as money comes in I just think about getting my Kimmy on! And I'll buy the new hair, make up or whatever...
I look at Kim so much and would love to be exactly like her because sometimes I feel like I'm not fully confident all the time within myself. My family are really worried, but they are so used to it now, but I know that I want to be happy.
I was badly, badly bullied over my looks and it took me ten years to realise that I wasn't unattractive. I was so badly bullied that I didn't want to be alive anymore.
At the moment, I feel like what I'm doing might not be right but I feel it’s what is best for me for the time being because when I get my Kimmy on I feel like I'm unstoppable and untouchable and I feel like no one can stop me and I can make something of myself. I see another photo her below.....
