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. See what he wrote below:
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.”
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.”
