Likeness: Kara Hays had a sex swap op to look like her idol Britney
Compliment: People told a young Kody they could see Britney Spears in him
A Britney Spears fan idolised the pop star so much he had a £60,000 sex change to look like her.
Transsexual Kara Hays, 26, born Kody, had the surgery in 2002 and also had breast implants to complete the look.
She even claims she shaved her head after suffering a mental breakdown in 2007 at the same time as her pop idol, 31.
Kara said that before the change Kody was often mistaken for a girl.
She said: “When people told me they could see Britney in me, it was a huge compliment.
"I viewed her as a very strong woman. Everybody wanted to date her.”
The aspiring actress, from Ohio, US, had severe depression as a child and once went to a school party in Britney’s red skin-tight costume aged 12.
The admission caused a huge uproar in his tiny Bible-belt town in Ohio, USA.
At the age of 15 his parents allowed him to see a doctor and he was diagnosed with gender dysphoria in 1999 and began taking female hormones.
Over the next few years he sprouted breasts, began to freely dress as a woman and changed his name to Kara.
In 2002 Kara underwent a gruelling 14 hour gender reassignment surgery and breast implant surgery, and has so far spent around £60,000 dying her hair blonde and modelling herself on her idea of perfection - Britney Spears.
She added: “Once I changed, school went perfectly normally.”
