Reality TV star Tobias Strebel, who shot to fame after he had thousands of dollars worth of surgery to look like Jusin Bieber, has been found dead.

The 35-year-old was found in a hotel room in California. Although there were drugs found in the room the cause of death is as yet undetermined.

Tobias had appeared on numerous reality TV shows, such as E!’s Botched and TLC’s My Strange Addiction which documented his numerous plastic surgery procedures.

According to sources Tobias, who went by the stage name Toby Sheldon, initially started his physical transformation in a bid to prevent his hair from thinning.

'What brought me to Bieber was the whole package'

However, once the prepubescent Justin Bieber exploded onto the scene in 2008 Tobias became obsessed with looking like the star. On a 2014 episode of Botched Tobias exclaimed his love for the pop star.

“What brought me to Bieber was the whole package: the full cheeks, the full temples, the bright open eyes, the full luscious lips, and spatial framing… [Justin's] just extraordinarily beautiful.”

Tobias was reported missing at the time of his death and was last spotted on August 18th. Police reportedly stated that the reality star’s disappearance may have been triggered by a breakup with his boyfriend.
