A 17-year-old has shared snaps of his car collection worth more than £1.7 million – even though he only passed his driving test in February.
Jack Watkin, a Rich Kid of Instagram , has been bought a Rolls-Royce, two Bentleys, two Mercedez-Benzs, a Range Rover Vogue and a Porsche – all courtesy of his wealthy parents.
The teenager regularly flies to holiday resorts via his family’s private jet and spends thousands on designer shopping sprees.
Jack says the most he’s ever splurged on a single fashion item was £500,000 on a Bvlgari watch
Jack, who is still in full-time education, says:
“I’m used to people being jealous of me – whether they’re teenagers or adults! I can handle all the envy.
“I know my life is different to other teenagers because I’m very blessed. I don’t have to worry about jobs and I have unlimited funds.”But my life is not easy. My dad has worked very hard to make sure I can have all these nice things.
“Our private jet doesn’t just fly itself; our pool doesn’t just clean itself; all my cars don’t automatically fill themselves with petrol.
“My dad has to make the money to do those things. It takes a lot of maintenance.”
Jack’s father made his fortune in the property business
“The jetset life is so normal to me, I’ve been doing it since I was a child. We just have a private jet because my dad hates queuing at the airport. So I love travelling to the Bora Bora or Dubai for a quick holiday. But when I’m in London, I’ll often dine in Nobu or The Dorchester.
“I order a lobster or steak. I never look at the price of the bill because eating is essential.”
But what Jack most likes to spend his pocket money on is clothes – often blowing £15,000 in a single shopping spree.
He counts Balmain, Yves Saint Laurent and Fendi as some of his favourite designers – blowing £15,000 in a single shopping spree.
Jack explains: “Fashion is my main expenditure. People should come to the charity shops near me because I donate all my Balmain blazers that are out-of-season to them!Most of my outfits are worth around £10,000 to £15,000. But when it comes to jewellery or watches, there’s no limit. My most expensive piece is a £500,000 watch
But I think I’m much more mature than most teenagers because I’ve been able to buy expensive watches and cars all by myself. I can cope with that responsibility unlike other teenagers.””I love social media and I get a lot of nice comments from my followers. But I also get so many people online asking me for money too!
“When I receive these requests, I just think where is your dignity? Obviously I’m not going to give them any money because I don’t know them.”
