Human Ken Doll Rodrigo Alves was detained in Dubai after the country’s passport control office couldn’t confirm his identity due to an unrecognisable picture.
Alves shot to fame after spending over £400k on plastic surgery to look like Ken, the boyfriend of popular girls doll Barbie.
He has never been one to shy away regarding the subject of his plastic surgery, however because his face has drastically altered officials in Dubai had no choice but to detain him.

The 34-year-old’s face has changed so much that it no longer resembles the original photo, which lead to border control delaying his return to the United Kingdom.
Despite living a life of luxury, the jet-setter was faced with trouble when tried to enter the United Arab Emirates to attend the launch of a new hotel. Alves was made to wait three hours before he was allowed entry into the country.
Prior to be being detained the Human Ken Doll revealed that he was considering gender reassignment to become a woman – or in his words a ‘Barbie doll’.
Speaking to The Mail Online he said:
I am very happy to be a man for now but I don’t want to an old saggy man. I will do what Caitlyn Jenner did. When I reach my late 50s, I would rather be a sexy old lady then a saggy old man.
To say the Middle East is a hot place is an understatement, temperatures can reach up to 45 °C ! So we’re quite surprised that Alves finds it a nice place to kick back and relax.
