An influencer who once revealed he spent almost £250,000 on cosmetic surgeries to look like a Barbie doll, is now ‘living as Ken’.
Oli London, 33, from Hertford, stunned the world in 2018 when he revealed he’d spent over £75,000 on surgeries to look like K-pop star, Jimin from South Korean boyband BTS.
Now the controversial star is back with another shocker – saying he’s ‘de-transitioned’ his feminine appearance to look like Barbie’s fictional boyfriend Ken, whilst his best friend Aliia Roza, 37, styles herself as Barbie.
He says he regrets undergoing some 32 cosmetic operations – including cat-eye surgery – which have left him with painful lock jaw as well as ‘paralysed with facial muscle movements’.
He explains: ‘I have changed my face so much I am pretty much paralysed with facial muscle movements.

‘I have six titanium brackets with 24 screws inside my chin and cheeks holding the bones together so sometimes I get jaw lock when I yawn and it’s really painful.
‘I regret a lot of it but I am happy with my Ken look and small nose and eyes’.
Oli says his exhaustive list of past surgeries were done to look like his idol Barbie.
His best friend Aliia, even styles herself as the real life doll, having spent ‘millions’ to achieve the look.
Oli and Aliia have been best friends since 2018 after he started work as her personal shopper, helping her find ‘the most beautiful stuff’.
He added that the besties love going out dressed as Barbie and Ken.
He said: ‘Last year I was living as a Barbie after I came out as trans but now I am back to living as Ken since de-transitioning and becoming a man again.
‘I previously spent £233,000 plus on 32 plastic surgery procedures to obtain my doll like look.

Oli says the besties love going out dressed as Barbie and Ken, however they used to attend high profile events dressed as Barbie together
‘Aliia has spent millions over the years to live her life as a real Barbie. We both attended the Cannes Film Festival last year as Barbies.
‘But this year, since I de-transitioned to become a man again, we are like Barbie and Ken and had custom made matching outfits which we wear for red carpets at Cannes Film Festival and Venice Film Festival and any other special events’.
Although Oli has lavished hundreds of thousands of pounds on his outward appearance, he says he’s in search of something ‘missing inside’.
He speaks on the challenges he’s faced along the journey of discovering himself, and realising he can be Ken without doing the ‘harmful stuff’.
He said: ‘When I transitioned to being a woman I had all of this praise and love but something was missing inside.

‘I thought all my personal struggles were because of my gender identity, but then I realised it wasn’t.
‘I had some therapy and went to church. Doing all this surgery doesn’t make me happy.
‘I needed to strip it back and realised I can still feel like a Ken doll without doing harmful stuff’.
Oli underwent his first surgical operation at age 23 in Korea, to change his nose shape.
He continued to have regular cosmetic surgery, including six nose jobs, jaw surgery, and even eye surgery to make his eyes more feminine.
