A 22-year-old Manchester, England, man reportedly spent almost $28,000 to look like the Kardashians.
James Holt said he spent thousands of dollars on butt implants, lip fillers, cheek filler, Botox, and filler under his eyes and on his jawline, The Sun reports. He also said he’d be willing to have ribs removed to achieve an hourglass figure.
Five years after his first surgery, Holt appeared almost entirely different than he did before.
"I’m going to be really fake looking – that’s the look I’m going for," he said, according to The Sun. "I love the Kardashians, especially Kylie and Khloe, but Kim is past it now. I love that big butt and small waist look. Since Kylie started getting big lips a year ago it’s become really fashionable. Mine are bigger than Kylie’s now.”
Holt said he planned to change his look since he was young and booked his first surgery at age 17.
“I went to college the next day expecting everyone to be amazed and to comment on my lips, but no one said anything,” he said.
“I went back the next morning and had another 1.5ml put in, but still no one noticed. By the end of the week I had 6ml and everyone said it looked amazing. I loved my look. It was big and juicy and it was just what I wanted.”
Holt had a close call, however, when lip filler began to leak and he was rushed to the hospital to fix the botched surgery. That didn’t stop him, though — he continued to get filler every two months on top of other procedures.
He reportedly squeezes into a size eight corset to achieve the Kardashian girls’ hourglass figure, but he’s so far been unhappy with the results.
“I was using it to push the ribs in to make them smaller, but as soon as you take it off it goes back to normal,” he said. “I want six ribs removed because I think I have too much ribcage. It makes me look bigger than I am.”
To fund his procedures, Holt said he has three sugar daddies who he exchanges explicit photos of himself for the money.
“You’ve just got to squeeze as much money out of them as fast as you can,” he said. “And when they start [pressuring] you to meet them, you block them.”
“My two main sugar daddies know me and have met me, but I’ve not had a sexual relationship with them or any others,” he said.
“I don’t know what they’re getting out of it; they don’t get much from me. They’re just making me happy.”
Though he said he has lots of admirers, Holt admitted that not everyone has been on board with his look.
“Lots of people will do double-takes and whisper stuff to each other," he said. "Some are really bold and they’ll come up to me and say, ‘Look at the state of your face’ or ask me if I’m afraid my lips will explode.
“I don’t care though; if they’re looking, they’re looking. I’m having these procedures to draw attention and occasionally that attention can be negative.”
In a similar instance, a British man reportedly spent $150,000 on extreme surgery to look his Kim Kardashian, his idol, E News reported. The surgeries included Botox, eyebrow tattoos, lip fillers and a chin filler.
“I absolutely love everything about Kim Kardashian,” Jordan James Parke said, according to E News. "I think she's everyone's guilty pleasure. For me, she is the most gorgeous woman ever. Her skin is perfect, her hair is perfect -- everything about her is perfect. There's no one I'd rather look like."
