Sex op Tiff: My fiance didn't know - but fell for me anyway; 'It's true love', says transgender model whose boyfriend is paying for operations.
BI R M I N G H A M beauty queen Tiffany-Rose Davies is set to marry the multi-millionaire who has lavished PS50,000 on her.
It sounds like a fairy tale romance.
But what makes it startlingly different is that the beautiful brunette used to be a man.
And her Arab businessman boyfriend has splashed all that cash on cosmetic surgery to change Tiffany-Rose from a him to a her.
She says the 28-year-old property developer, who first got in touch with her on Facebook, wants her to marry him so they can live together in Dubai.
Tiffany-Rose, 23, will only name him as Yaser, but says he has been visiting her for the last two years.
During that time he has spent more than PS20,000 on nights in hotels, champagne and clothes.
"It's true love," says transgender Tiffany-Rose. "He is my ideal man - tall, dark, handsome and extremely charming. "He got in touch with me on Facebook and has been over to see me eight times over the last two years.
"He has spent thousands of pounds on me and wants to marry me next year.
"It's a huge decision to marry him and go over there to live but I will do it. I haven't given him a definite answer yet but in my heart I know he is the one for me."
She says that when Yaser first got in touch, he was unaware she was a transexual.
But despite the initial shock, she says he has fallen for her.
"He was very upset at first," admits Tiffany-Rose. "We did have our problems for a while.
"But he says he loves me and doesn't want to lose me.
"We have never had sex - I am making him wait to prove he loves me. He loves me for who I am but knows I want to make the full transition and has been funding my cosmetic treatment.
"He has a lot of property and money from inheritance and told me he is worth PS40 million.
"It is a big decision to go and move away from my family and live abroad but I am in love and he wants me to be his princess.
"I am on the waiting list for a full sex change operation on the NHS but he wants me to go private and is offering to pay the PS20,000 cost of the operation.
"But I want other cosmetic surgery including a boob job and work on my lips and nose, so altogether it will be around PS50,000."
She says that she will have the full sex change before they marry - and they have tentatively talked about dates next year.
"I want our first night together to be very special," she explains. We have even been talking about having a family together in the future and adopting children.
"I am so happy and so looking forward to our future together."
Tiffany-Rose hit the headlines back in February after Benefits Street star White Dee's manager Barry Tomes refused to let her audition for a new allgirl pop group called Office Girls.
He was barred because biologically he is still a man.
White Dee, real name Deirdre Kelly, defended her in a heated row with Mr Tomes but he stuck by his decision and refused to let her sing.
Tiffany-Rose is planning to take part in Miss Transgender England and will compete at the Birmingham heats taking place on August 22 at the The Penthouse at The Loft Lounge in Bromsgrove Street, Birmingham city centre. The winner of the grand final will scoop PS5,000.
She also has ambitions of becoming a transgender underwear model, and says she bases her style on her heroines, Kim Kardashian, Cheryl Cole and Britney Spears.
Tiffany-Rise was formerly a boy named Niall and claims she knew from the age of 13 that she wanted to become a girl.
She began experimenting with make-up and, at 16, enrolled at a college to study hairdressing.
It was there that she began to accept her new identity and, a year later, started calling herself Tiffany-Rose.
