Barbie and Ken are in a bitter feud. New York native Justin Jedlica, who has spent over $150,000 and had 90 cosmetic surgeries to look like Matel's Ken doll, publicly mocked Valeria Lukyanova, dubbed human Barbie.
According to the Daily Mail, Jedlica dressed up as a drag queen version of Lukyanova to prove to people that anyone could look like Barbie and she was a "total fake." He told the British newspaper that he wanted everyone to know that the "real-life Barbie was anything but real."
"Valeria presents herself as a real-life Barbie doll, but she is nothing more than an illusion who dresses like a drag queen," he said. "Unlike me, who has spent nearly $150,000 permanently transforming myself into a human Ken doll, Valeria just plays dress up."
In 2012 rumors surfaced that Lukyanova was fake and photoshopped her pictures so she would look more doll-like. TheDirty.com posted a video of the Ukrainian model and pointed out that she looked drastically different than the pictures she posts online.
There were also other rumors that she had some type of surgery to help her keep her tiny frame. Lukyanova responded to the claims on her Facebook page writing "I'm happy I seem unreal. It means I'm doing a good job."
Jedlica, however, claims Lukyanova is his "nemesis" and wants to expose all her secrets to obtaining the Barbie look.
"As soon as you wipe away all that makeup she's just plain Jane and there's absolutely nothing special about her," he said. "Valeria has been my arch nemesis ever since we met each other earlier this year, and by dressing up like her twin I wanted to prove that anyone can look like Barbie, even Ken!"
"And in all honesty, I think I make an even prettier Barbie than she does," he added.
The pair first met in February during a TV appearance and didn't hit off. At the time real-life Ken said he thought Lukyanova was beautiful but told the Huffington Post "it appears to me that much of her look is added makeup, fake hair and slimming corsets.
She responded by telling The Sun, that she keeps her incredibly thin frame by working out and Jedlica should not call anyone fake.
"He would do better not to comment on who is plastic and who is not," she said. "I think he is a handsome man - but he overdid his lips."
