'Real Life' Barbie And Ken Fall Out - Ken Retaliates By Dressing Up As Barbie

When real life Ken - Justin Jedlica - met real life Barbie - Valeria Lukyanova, no one really expected them to actually get into a relationship.

After all, when you pair two people who have spent most of their lives dressing up to resemble dolls, anything goes.

What we didn't expect though, was for Jedlica - who has had over 100 surgeries to resemble Ken (we're guessing not in the neutered pants-department, however) - to persist in his feud with Lukyanova, sorry, Barbie.

After their first meeting, Jedlica spoke out about how he thought Lukyanova was a fake. In his latest outburst, the 32-year-old likened Lukyanova to a drag queen and to prove his point, dressed up like Barbie, pink dress and all.

The bone that really seems to stick in Jedlica's craw, is that Lukyanova has only had breast implants done - the rest is make-up and lighting.

The Daily mail reported him as saying: "Valeria presents herself as a real-life Barbie doll, but she is nothing more than an illusion who dresses like a drag queen. Unlike me, who has spent nearly $150,000 permanently transforming myself into a human Ken doll, Valeria just plays dress up."

Earlier, in an interview with HuffPost Weird News, Jedlica said: "I do find her beautiful," he said in an email. "[But] it appears to me that much of her look is added makeup, fake hair and 'slimming' corsets ... Drag queens have put on the same illusions with makeup and costumes for years."

Jedlica, of New York City, is certainly the real deal in terms of body modification - but that isn't something to be envied.

He's had around 90 surgeries to get the "muscular" body and chiseled face he has today. He's been injected with silicone all over his body, has had several nose jobs, and plans to continue his work. So far it has cost him about $100,000.
