There are good ways to spend $30,000, like paying off student loans, your car note or even just putting some away for a rainy day. But there are also bad ways to spend $30,000, and 25-year-old Claire Louise Leeson is a perfect living example of what not to do with $30K.
Ladies and gentlemen … meet the “Kardashian Klone“ aka the “British Kim Kardashian“ aka another person who has spent a ridiculous amount of money in an even more ridiculous attempt to look like their favorite celebrity.
Claire Leeson started kardashian-ifying herself when she was 17 years old. She said in an interview with the U.K. talk show This Morning, she was bullied when she was younger, and was was told every day that she was the “ugliest thing alive” and should “kill myself.”
Leeson said she’s had a lot of work done, including getting a boob job, her teeth whitened, hair extensions, butt pads, expensive make-up, spray tans, a new wardrobe, etc. The grand total for everything comes out to be around £20,000 or about $34,000 USD.
According to Metro UK:
She’s had to put the funds on credit cards, admitting during an interview on This Morning today that she has debts “up to my eyeballs” and has even had bailiff letters.
But it doesn’t matter, as she says: “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.”
Leeson also explained that she wears pants with silicone padding to mimic Kim’s famous booty, but she’s actually considering getting butt implants as the next step in her kardashianification process.
