Man Who Spent $100K To Look Like Justin Bieber Found Dead

The man who spent more than $100k on plastic surgeries to resemble pop singer Justin Bieber has died, TMZ reports.

35-year-old Toby Sheldon achieved a degree of notoriety after appearing on the reality shows Botched and My Strange Addiction, where he talked about his obsession with looking like his favorite pop singer, who he described as “perfect” and “extraordinary beautiful.” In 2o14, he released his first single, “Justified,” with musician Adam Barta, an EDM song and ode to Bieber.

Sheldon’s body was discovered in a room at a Motel 6 in the San Fernando Valley on August 21. He had been reported missing since August 18. Police initially thought his disappearance was in connection to a recent breakup with his boyfriend. Drugs were found in the motel room, though it’s still unclear how exactly Sheldon died.

Since the news broke, friends and fans of Sheldon have been mourning on Twitter:

My deepest condolences go out to the family of Toby Sheldon. He was good person with a great heart.
