TMZ has reported that his body was found in a motel room in the San Fernando Valley on August 21.

The cause of his death is not yet known.

Despite being 14 years older than his idol Justin Bieber, he dedicated most of his life to looking like the Canadian singer.

"By using Justin’s charming baby face as my inspiration, I've been able to restructure my entire look to maintain a much more youthful appearance through plastic surgery," he admitted on the TLC show My Strange Addiction last year.

The reality star also appeared on the TV show Botched, a show that tells the tales of plastic surgery gone wrong, and featured in a band called The Plastics.
