Kandi Burruss had a major surprise for her daughter Riley Burruss‘ 16th birthday earlier this week. “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star surprised her teen with a custom Porshe Cayenne the day before she turned the big age but some fans felt it was an overly pricey first car.
“I had to surprise my baby girl @rileyburruss today with her car,” Burruss said on Instagram Tuesday, Aug. 21. “Her #Sweet16 is tomorrow but I figured she would be super surprised & not expecting anything if it was the day before her bday. I put the nickname that @nickiminaj gave her on the floor when you open the car door. #Rilez.”
Several fans praised the hard-working mom for giving her deserving daughter the gift.
“She’s a wonderful young lady!! She sooooo deserves it!!”
“Awesome!!! She’s so deserving of it ”
“Yesss Black folks buying they kids Porsche’s outchea. We winning .”
But many others didn’t think a luxury crossover SUV was appropriate for a 16-year-old.
“Nuh-uh a 16 years old does not need a Porsche 😖.”
“That’s a whole lot of car for a 16-year-old. Be careful.”
“I’m sorry but this is way too much for a child’s first car. What did you get Todd’s daughter btw? Riley has always been portrayed as being a spoiled brat on RHOA but this is a whole other level.”
“It’ll be wrecked in no time and mommy is just going to go out and get another one only for that one to get wrecked in no time too and the cycle will continue… Smdh!”
However, many defended the expensive present.
“If u dont think she deserves a Porche what’s ya biz. Buy your 16-year-old sweets from Target and have a bed and sleep. U didnt buy the Porche yet you’re drinking Panadol for another man’s headache. Plsssss Go and sleep in the forest, hungry goat.”
“Interesting comments. Wealthy people have a different reality than the average 9 to 5 joe. They can afford ‘living their best life.’ If most people had even half of Kandis money, they would do the same for their kids too.”
“I’m soo shocked to read all of the shady comments about what she decided to get her daughter for her birthday lol! It’s just a car calm down! And sorry if she has it to give why can’t she? Stop hating it’s not like she didn’t work hard all of her life to get to this stage!”
