Yes. Those are her words. Claire Leeson, a 24-year-old ride-or-die fan of Kim Kardashian, dropped around $30K to look like the reality TV star. Or what she likes to call “getting her Kimmy on.”
This is Claire Louise Leeson.
This Londoner had a boob job, among other plastic surgery procedures, to better resemble her idol.
This is her explanation: “I was badly bullied at school and it took me two years to realize that I wasn’t [what the bullies were calling me].”
“I was told every day that I was the ‘ugliest thing alive’ and I should ‘kill myself.’”
This obsession has put her in massive debt, but it’s slowly paying itself off. She sometimes gets paid to impersonate Kim at events.
“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.”
The change has also boosted her confidence and built up her self-esteem.
“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.”
