A reality TV star who spent more than $100,000 to look like Justin Bieber has been found dead in a California hotel room, according to a report.

The body of Tobias Strebel, 35 — who went by the name Toby Sheldon — was found in a room at a Motel 6 in San Fernando Valley Aug. 21, the LAPD told TMZ.

Police reportedly found drugs in the room, but did not reveal a cause of death.

Strebel was reported missing Aug. 18 and police believed a recent break-up with his boyfriend may have been linked to his disappearance.

Photos of the aspiring singer went viral in 2013 after he had received multiple plastic surgeries to look more like Bieber, including “smile surgery” to have a comparable grin. As a result, he was featured on the E! reality show “Botched” last year.

During that appearance, Strebel said: “What brought me to Bieber was the whole package: the full cheeks, the full temples, the bright open eyes, the full luscious lips, and spatial framing … (he’s) just extraordinarily beautiful.”
