I Spent $10,000 On Myself For Christmas, My 3 Kids Get Nothing & They’re Fuming




  • Carla Belluci spent £8,000 on herself over the holidays and she did not buy any gifts for her three children.
  • She said her kids should earn their own money and buy their own gifts if they want.

38-year-old influencer Carla Belluci has recently attracted a lot of mixed reactions from netizens after sharing how she spent $10,000 (£8,000) all for herself on Christmas. Yes, she did not buy anything for her children and no, she’s not feeling any guilt about her decision.

According to the mother of three, her children Jayden, 13, and Tanisha, 15, should earn their own money from social media. Meanwhile, 18-year-old Jermaine decided not to celebrate the holidays with them this year.

Carla got new veneers, touch up Botox an fillers. She also spent on clothes, shoes, facials, and manicures. She bought nothing or her children, which has since sparked arguments in their home.

Carla defended in an interview:

“I don’t care if people call me spoilt or selfish. I know I deserve my £8,000 spending spree. Spoiling kids at Christmas is wrong. I think parents who spoil their kids this year are hypocrites.

“I am a brilliant mum and am using COVID Christmas as a life lesson. I want my kids to be social media stars and withholding gifts this year will teach them to make money for themselves.

“Lockdown stressed me so I need to spoil myself. I have always bought the kids nice things at Christmas throughout the years. It’s Mummy time now.”

“It sounds harsh,” said the single mom from Hitchin, Hertfordshire, “but I know they’re on their social media feeds doubling their efforts for promotion deals, just like the Kardashians and Kylie Jenner, so I consider myself a super mum for inspiring them. They needed a push to get their Instagram careers off the ground, so that’s what I gave them. If toddlers can make money from Instagram collaborations, I see no reason my kids can’t.”

“If they want Christmas gifts, they’ll have to buy them for themselves – like I did,” Carla stressed.
