A woman who is known for splashing the cash in Dubai has sparked outrage after sharing how she blew over $2 million in only a week.

Linda Andrade, the well-known wife of Dubai millionaire Ricky Andrade, who made his fortune through Crypto and Forex (foreign exchange market).

A video has gone viral detailing how the self-proclaimed ‘Original Dubai Housewife’, who is originally from California, lived up to the phrase “If you’ve got it flaunt it.”

In the video, which shows Linda’s spending spree and has amassed over 580,000 views on TikTok, we see how she spent a massive $2.5 million in a week.

So what exactly did she buy, you ask?

The massive expenditures were broken down into a $1,411,088 deposit, $356,214 on shopping, $229,141 in cash, $7,210 on chocolate, $201,200 in gold... and here’s the fun part.

Linda reportedly spent $216,789 just because it was a ‘random Wednesday’ while she reserved $52,210 in ‘fun money’.

Her previous videos have seen her boast about spending $16,000 in one day, sample 24K gold cup of coffee and the moment her husband arranged for a “Happy Birthday message” to be displayed on the Burj Khalifa.

The newest clip did not go down well among TikTok users, with many people flocking to the comments to lament on Linda’s fortune flexing.

“How do you have infinite money like this bro,” one confused TikTok user.

“Nahhh I cry when I spend $10 at McDonald’s,” someone else confessed, while another said: “So like is there ever a day where you don’t spend anything?”

“This is not a flex. This is a waste,” a TikToker wrote. “Rich people can’t read the room.”

Linda has previously addressed the reactions to the extravagant videos and addressed speculation about her marriage over whether she married Ricky just for his money.

“I don’t have any shame in flaunting a gold-digger aesthetic,” the 23-year-old Dubai bride said in an interview with The New York Post.

Linda said she met her husband before he was rich. In fact, Ricky was working as a dishwasher technician when they started dating.

“It’s been such a long journey, and Ricky knows the truth.”

Linda also comes from humble beginnings after relocating from Amman, Jordan to anaheim California, when she was just two. The family of six lived in a one-bedroom apartment until her dad Fouad opened an electronic repair shop which specialised in repairing mobile phones and computers.

Linda credits her dad’s strong work ethic in helping her know what she wanted in a husband.

Linda and Ricky’s meet-cute was at a gym when she was 16 - he gave her his number because his mobile phone was broken.

"When I met Ricky, I saw all those similar traits [to my father] in him,” she said. “I wasn’t looking for a wealthy guy, but I was looking for ambition. And, above all, a good man.

"Money’s not the end-all, be-all — because you could be with someone who’s rich and treats you like crap, you know?”
