Fans imitating their favourite stars isn’t a new phenomenon. Recently, an Iranian girl who underwent a lot of surgeries to look like Angelina Jolie has left the fans baffled, now yet another case has made its way to the headlines.
As per the latest reports, a former Versace model Jennifer Pamplona underwent the knife multiple times as she spent almost $600k in an attempt to transform herself into a beauty mogul Kim Kardashian’s lookalike. Now, she has paid $120k to ‘detransition’ back to her former appearance. As per the latest New York Post reports, the 29-year-old model had to undergo approximately 40 cosmetic operations over a 12-year period in an effort to look like a celebrity, however, she soon realised that her pleasure was only at the surface level.
The former Versace model claimed that people often addressed her as Kim Kardashian after spending the hefty amount and undergoing multiple surgeries.
"People would call me a Kardashian and it started to get annoying. I had worked and studied and was a businesswoman. I had done all these things and had all these achievements in my personal life, but I was only being recognized because I looked like a Kardashian.", Jennifer told Caters.
In 2010, Jennifer Pamplona underwent the knife for the first time when she was 17. Back in the day, Kim was just starting to establish herself as a household name. After her first surgery, Pamplona quickly became addicted to operations that would make her look like the newly-minted Hollywood A-lister.
According to the report, she underwent more than 40 procedures, wherein three were rhinoplasties and eight operations on her bottom, including butt implants and fat injections, to emulate Kardashian’s supersized booty.
To note her sudden transformation as Kardashian’s lookalike helped her gain fame and garner Internation acclaim.
However, soon, the happiness faded. “I discovered that I was addicted to surgery and I wasn’t happy, I was putting filler in my face like I was in the supermarket,” Pamplona admitted. “It was an addiction and I got into a cycle of surgery equals fame and money, I just lost control of everything. I went through a lot of hard times.”, she further said.
Unfortunately, after years of feeling low over her looks, the model decided to go back to her normal looks as she started to suffer from body dysmorphia.
She later tracked down a doctor in Istanbul who said he could help her revert to her original appearance.
