TAMPA (CBS Tampa Bay) — One “Belieber” took his obsession with the pop superstar to a whole new level.
According to Closer, aspiring musician Toby Sheldon has spent nearly $100,000 over the past five years on plastic surgery to look like Justin Bieber.
“It’s Justin’s smile that gives him his youthful look. So I had my upper lip lifted [and] my bottom lip plumped out,” Sheldon said.
Sheldon’s infatuation with Bieber reportedly began in 1998 when he first burst onto the scene.
Closer reports Sheldon has had smile surgery, eyelid surgery, Botox injections and hair transplants.
“My smile surgery took more than a month to recover from,” Sheldon said. “And, after my eyelid surgery, I couldn’t open my eyes for a week.”
Despite Sheldon wanting to walk in Bieber’s footsteps, hopefully he won’t go down the legal rocky road his idol has gone down.
Customs agents reportedly searched Bieber’s luggage at an airport in Puerto Rico this past weekend, but no drugs were found. In August, Bieber and his entourage reportedly had their luggage checked by drug sniffing dogs at a Fort Lauderdale airport. No drugs were found there either. But marijuana was reportedly found on his tour bus in July while he was crossing into the U.S. from Canada and in April while he was in Sweden.
He could easily go with Miley Cyrus if he tires of the Bieber look, actually all that would be required are a few minor hairstyle changes and letting his tongue hang out.
