According to reports, Colucci had undergone numerous surgeries to alter various parts of his face in order to resemble Jimin. This extreme devotion to the K-pop singer eventually took a toll on his health, and his body deteriorated following the 12th surgery, leading to his tragic death in the hospital. On Saturday, Colucci had to undergo a procedure to remove his jaw, and he passed away the following day.
It's a tragic reminder of how some fans can take their love for celebrities too far, and it's important for individuals to prioritize their health and well-being over trying to emulate someone else's appearance. Colucci's death is a loss for the entertainment industry and his loved ones, and it serves as a cautionary tale for those who may be struggling with unhealthy obsessions.

While it is perfectly normal to be a fan of someone, it is essential to understand that they are human beings with their own lives and problems. As fans, it is our responsibility to respect their boundaries and love them for who they are, not for who we want them to be.
