This woman spent S$37.3K to look like Kim Kardashian
Claire Leeson has spent over US$30,000 (S$37,300) on surgery just to make herself look like her idol, reality star Kim Kardashian.
The 24 year old Essex, England, resident admitted getting breast implants, hair extensions, spray tans, make-up and clothing similar to what the 33-year-old star has.
In an interview with ITV's This Morning on July 14, Leeson explained that getting bullied as a teen was a huge blow to her self-confidence and that her plastic surgery has helped her regain her confidence.
"I've had my teeth whitened, then I wanted my boobs enhanced ... and with pictures (of Kardashian) explained to my surgeon that I wanted to look like this. I also wear bum padding -- it's a silicone base. Pants with silicone inside."

And she still has intentions on putting in more implants to further increase the size of her backside.
Leeson said that her friends told her she resembled Kardashian and that was why she became obsessed with looking more like her.
"So I watched (the show) and realised I had the same amount of siblings and that we have the same kind of arguments and things going on," she said. "I thought she was so beautiful and I really wanted to be like her."
You'd think that getting all these surgeries done meant that Leeson is quite well-to-do. Think again.
Leeson admitted on This Morning that she's in significant debt. She charges everything to her credit card and has not been able to pay off much of her debt.
She's even received threatening letters from creditors. But that still isn't going to stop her from achieving her dream.
"I work, my job doesn’t pay enough … I’ve used credit cards to pay for everything. I’m in major debt. I say that I’m going to pay them but as soon as money comes in I just think about getting my Kimmy on," she explained.
"When I get my Kimmy on I feel like I’m unstoppable and untouchable and I feel like no one can stop me and I can make something of myself. I feel strong … and I feel that I have built enough confidence to love myself a little bit more.”
