Kim Kardashian’s looks are the source of both envy and inspiration for many, but Jordan James Parke took his obsession with the pop culture icon to the next level.
Parke, 23, a makeup artist from Birmingham, England, has spent nearly $160,000 trying to look like Kim. He’s had his lips filled 50 times and has fillers in his chin, forehead and cheek, in addition to laser hair removal. He has also had his eyebrows repeatedly tattooed on.
However, Parke’s plastic surgery has had serious consequences. He recently appeared on the E! TV reality show "Botched" (video below), where he revealed he can “no longer move his face” and his lips are leaking. He has to smear Vaseline on his lips every 10 minutes to combat chronic dryness.
“I’m addicted to lip-fillers," he said on the show. "The bigger, the better. I’ve never felt better about myself. I laugh when people try to insult me by telling me I look plastic or fake. Do they think I’m going for the natural look? If I was, I’d ask for my money back.
“I can’t really move my face," he added. "I want just a little bit of definition and they just got bigger and bigger but any attention is good attention."
Parker then requested additional plastic surgery from Doctors Terry Dubrow and Paul Nassif to slim down the appearance of his nose. The doctors, who specialize in repairing botched plastic surgery, declined Parke’s request for surgery and explained, due to the size of his lips, he wouldn’t be able to breathe out of his nose.
Still, Parke is set on altering his appearance.
“Whenever I see a new procedure, I have to try it," he said. "I’m in the clinic so often I get a discount. I do borrow money off my family. But I have worked hard, in sales and at a health club."
