The famous Justin Bieber look-alike, Toby Sheldon, was found dead in a San Fernando Valley motel, reports TMZ.
Known for spending over $100,000 to look like the Biebs, Toby was an internet sensation who even appeared on TV shows like My Strange Addiction and Botched.
The reality star had reportedly been missing since August 18, leaving his friends very worried. “This is very unusual for him to be missing. He hasn’t done anything…..not shown up for no reason….no note or anything,” friend Mel Espinoza told ABC 7.
Another friend later said, “I knew something was wrong with him when he wouldn’t answer his phone. When I heard that him and his boyfriend had broken up, I knew he wouldn’t take it easy. When he went missing I had a feeling that he would hurt himself. I didn’t know that he was taking drugs so this may have been his first time. He was very depressed. He was hurting and just didn’t know what to do.”
Police later revealed that there were drugs in the room where Toby was found, though his cause of death is still unknown.
During an appearance on My Strange Addiction, the JB mega fan confessed, “Some people buy fancy cars or fancy mansions. What I do with my money is I get surgery to look more like Justin Bieber.”
He did just that, as you can clearly see from his Instagram that he used to show his love for the singer.
