A mum has defended hiring a troupe of strippers for her daughter’s 18th birthday and said anyone who has an issue can ‘jog on’.
Influencer Carla Bellucci is splashing out a whopping £10,000 for her daughter Tanisha’s birthday on 3 February, which includes around £600 for three strippers to ‘wait on her and her friends hand and foot’.
Mum Carla, a former glamour model, is refusing to spare expense when it comes to marking Tanisha’s 18th and will be serving up bottles of £200 Dom Perignon champagne as well as hiring an Instagrammable doughnut wall, a magician and a DJ.
In an interview with Fabulous, Carla accepted that the OTT bash might attract some negative comments but said she doesn’t care.
She said: "My eldest daughter Tanisha will be turning 18 on February 3rd and I am going to make sure it will be a day for not only her but the whole village to remember.
"Rather than popping a sad £5 Prosecco, I am going to make sure Tanisha’s first taste of booze is from a bottle of £200 Dom Perignon champagne and I want to make sure she does it in style.
"She’s going to see Magic Mike Live the week before she turns 18 so I thought, ‘Why not continue the theme?’ so I have booked three strippers to wait on her and her friends hand and foot.”
Carla stressed that the strippers bits will be covered by a ‘little apron’ and that the booze will be strictly off-limits for anyone under the age of 18.
"I know full well that local mums will be horrified by the idea,” she added. “But at the end of the day she’s an adult, I don’t see the issue!"
Like most of us, Carla admits that she’s feeling the pinch and has had to ‘budget a little’ due to rising bills, but she’s still happy to drop a cool £10,000 on the day and is also treating Tanisha to a trip to Paris as ‘she will only turn 18 once’.
Carla, who lives with her partner Gio, Tanisha, son Jayden, 15, and 12-month-old Blue, said she knows not everyone will agree with her party plans - and its hefty budget - but says they can ‘jog on’.
And once back from their trip, Carla says her daughter will be ‘keen to set up her own Only Fans account’ and that she’ll be as ‘involved as possible’.
