How obsessed can one be in a celebrity? Well, if you look at Claire Leeson the answer is – a lot! The 24-year-old British woman has spent over $30,000 on breast implants, hair extensions, spray tans, makeup and clothing just to look like Kim Kardashian. On ITV’s “This Morning”, Leeson explained that the extreme measures she’s taken to look more like Kardashian were done in an attempt to gain self-confidence after being bullied as a teen.
“I’ve had my teeth whitened, then I wanted my boobs enhanced … and with pictures [of Kardashian]explained to my surgeon that I wanted to look like this,” she told. “I also wear bum padding – it’s a silicone base. Pants with silicone inside.”
The huge obsession over the Kardashian sister came after some of her friends told her she looked like the reality star. “So I watched [the show]and realized I had the same amount of siblings and that we have the same kind of arguments and things going on,” she explained. “I thought she was so beautiful and I really wanted to be like her.”
There is only one problem with Claire’s behaviour – she’s running out of money for more improvements! “I work, my job doesn’t pay enough … I’ve used credit cards to pay for everything. I’m in major debt. I say that I’m going to pay them but as soon as money comes in I just think about getting my Kimmy on,” she explained, adding: “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 feel strong … and I feel that I have built enough confidence to love myself a little bit more.”
One thing is for sure – if Claire doesn’t stop with her attempts to look like Kim, she’s going to have to change her whole life because of all her debts.
