The man who spent over $100,000 (£64,600) in order to look as much like Justin Bieber as possible, has been found dead in a motel room.

The 35-year-old TV personality originally went missing in West Hollywood on August 18, but was found in a Motel 6 room three days later, the Hollywood Reporter confirms.

According to the Los Angeles Coroner’s Office, the cause of death has not yet been determined, even following an autopsy.

Tobias appeared on a 2014 episode of E!’s plastic-surgery series Botched, where he revealed spending over £100,000 in order to look like Justin Bieber, referring to the pop star as “extraordinarily beautiful.”

Following the show, he quickly became a viral sensation online, appearing on websites such as Reddit and Imgur and trending on the likes of Twitter and Facebook. He also appeared on TLC’s My Strange Addiction and had been pursuing a music career.
