Social media has shredded through the veil that once separated the uber wealthy’s opulent shenanigans from prying eyes, and revealed an unbelievable world of R55 000 Versace handbags and red bottom shoes.
One individual who is forcing the internet to pick its jaw up from the floor is 26-year-old Roma Abdesselam.
Her job is simple: spend as much of her parents’ money and has gone on to call herself a professional stay-at-home daughter.
When asked where her family’s wealth comes from, Abdesselam refused to comment. Thankfully, her 83k Instagram followers don’t have to worry too much about how she spends her family’s cash as she proudly flaunts her shopping sprees on the social media platform.
So, just what are a few of her favourite “splurges?”
New eyebrows for a whopping $600 (R10 000), followed by a shopping spree that costs upwards of $1353 (R23 000) for skincare and perfume, $2774 (R45 000) on the best lingerie, and $4485 (R75 000) on clothing.
While money appears to be no object, her parents recently attempted to curb her expensive appetite by limiting her monthly allowance.
“I never used to have an allowance but eventually my parents put one in place because I was spending around $150 000 (R2,5 million) a month,” she stated.
But while Roma spends her days swiping her parents’ credit cards, don’t call her unemployed.
“I have turned spending (my parents’) money as a stay-at-home daughter into a job, and that’s been very, very fun for me.”
While the above is certainly enough to leave the Average Joe’s blood boiling, you’ll be happy to know that Roma merely started her account on TikTok during lockdown as a goof which seemed to garner the attention of thousands who found themselves trapped indoors.
The truth? She’s actually a 40-year-old dermatologist making her own money, but who wouldn’t love to be a stay-at-home daughter.
