Rodrigo Alves, the “Human Ken Doll” has now made the startling announcement that they are now transgender.
The 36-year-old told the UK’s Daily Mirror they had been living a lie by spending more than $650,000 to look like Barbie’s beau, Ken.
“I’m known as Ken but inside I’ve always felt like Barbie,” Alves told the Mirror, adding she will now go by Roddy with dresses and high heels on the menu.
“I finally feel like the real me. Glamorous, beautiful and feminine.”
During her Ken phase, the Brazilian plastic surgery enthusiast had four ribs removed, a “cat’s eye” eyelift and a plethora of nose jobs that caused her nose to crater.
Now, she wants D-cup breast implants, wider hips and bigger lips.
On Instagram, the male Ken is gone. Welcome, Barbie.
“For years I tried to live my life as a man. I had a fake six-pack put in, I had fake muscles in my arms, but I was lying to myself,” she told the Mirror.
“I’m a woman and have always had a feminine brain. Now my body matches my mind.”

And she says she’s enjoying the leers and wolf whistles her feminine looks are getting her.
“I will have a penile inversion and my testicles will be removed. That will be the final step,” she said.
“Before that, I’m having silicone breast implants. I’ll be able to wear dresses that show my cleavage and look sexy. I’m very excited.”
Ahead for Roddy will be facial feminization surgery, forehead reshaping, the removal of her Adam’s apple and jawline shaving.
“Growing up, I was very feminine and used to play with dolls and wear my mom’s dresses and heels,” she said, adding that after a photo shoot she decided she was all woman.
“Within a month I was diagnosed with gender dysmorphic disorder and given the option to start the appropriate medication to transition,” she told the newspaper.
“Before, people looked at me because I looked very androgynous and weird for a man. Now I hope they are looking because they think I am a beautiful woman.”
