British make-up artist Jordan James Parke adores Kim Kardashian so much that he spent a whopping $150,000 on cosmetic procedures, just so he could look like her. He has undergone over 50 surgeries including botox, lip and cheek fillers, eyebrow tattoos and laser hair removal.
Jordan revealed that he became obsessed with the star of reality TV series Keeping Up with the Kardashians after watching just one episode. “I love everything about Kim,” he said. “She’s the most gorgeous woman ever. Her skin is perfect, her hair, everything about her.”
After all his surgeries, Jordan does appear to be an exaggerated version of Kim – a look that has brought him quite a bit of criticism. But he isn’t too bothered because he actually seems to like the way he looks now. “I laugh when people try to insult me by telling me I look plastic or fake,” he said. “Do they think I’m going for a natural look? If I was, I’d ask for my money back.”
“I’ve never felt better about myself,” he added.
In fact, Jordan is far from finished with altering his looks. Next on his list is a nose job, and he wouldn’t say no to increasing the size of his lips either. “I’m addicted to lip fillers. The bigger, the better. Whenever I see a new procedure, I have to try it. I’m in the clinic so often, I get a discount. I do borrow money off my family. But I have worked hard, in sales and at a health club.”
Jordan tries to emulate Kim in other areas as well – he recently splurged on the star’s favorite vampire facial. The $700 cosmetic procedure involves blood being drawn out of the body and injected into various points on the face. Jordan has also spent over $90,000 on designer clothes and bags from Prada, Chanel and Louis Vuitton.
He obviously spends a lot of money on his unique lifestyle, a habit he learned from his mother. “I grew up with my mum who would spend the last pound in her purse if she wants something. Now, if I want it, I have it. My mum also likes to buy me things, which I am very grateful for. I am a little spoilt, I have to admit,” Jordan accepted.
