Justin Bieber 'lookalike' Toby Sheldon found dead in motel room
A Justin Bieber 'lookalike' who spent $100,000 (£65,000) to look like his idol has been found dead in a motel room, his representative has confirmed.
Toby Sheldon was reported missing on 18 August and was last seen in West Hollywood. The 35-year-old’s body was discovered in a room in Motel 6 in the San Fernando Valley on 21 August.
The circumstances of his death are unknown and no cause of death has been given, according to Deadline. Drugs were found in his room, a law enforcement official was quoted as telling TMZ.
He appeared on the 2014 reality television show Botched and My Strange Addiction about his obsession with looking like Bieber.
Describing his decision to undergo plastic surgery, he said: “What brought me to Bieber was the whole package: the full cheeks, the full temples, the bright open eyes, the full luscious lips and spacial framing. [He’s] just extraordinarily beautiful."
He told TLC in 2014: “Some people buy fancy cars or fancy mansions. What I do with my money is I get surgery to look more like Justin Bieber.”
