Everyone had a friend growing up who was given everything they ever wanted. At the time you were jealous, but growing up, you learned to appreciate the way your own upbringing molded your character because those kids turned out to be horrible brats. These are the types of spoiled brats this article is about. I’m not going to be talking about all the pampered kids out there – I know, there are lots of them, but most of them still grow up to be decent human beings. Instead, let’s focus on the bitter ones; who’s fortunate upbringing up has dramatically damaged their character for the worst.
10. Cherylyn Futch
According to her mum, Cherylyn has blown $100,000 on clothes, make-up, fast cars, and fine dining. She has an unbelievable 17 credit cards, all maxed out and, by her own count, is $25,300 in debt. She says that being able to go out and buy whatever she wants makes her happy. One time, when she visited Disneyworld with her mom on vacation she got upset she didn’t get fine dining so pushed her mom’s fish fillet in her face.
But Cherylyn says that it’s not her fault because her ‘lazy, moody and mean mother’ raised her to be that way. In her own defense she said: “I blame her because growing up I didn’t have to do anything”. Which is ironic, because clearly that meant her mum made a lot of sacrifices, but when asked if she appreciates any of it, she replied no.
But the best part is when she pawned family heirlooms. In need of money, she took her mom’s priceless jewelry to the pawnshop and sold it. Then when asked if she appreciated the BMW she was gifted by her parents, she said she would have preferred a Mercedes.
Her response to it all? “She grew me up, didn’t she?” Maybe she should’ve better spent that time on English lessons…
9. Lil Tay
This 9-year-old is a self-proclaimed ‘rapper’ who burst onto the scene next to fellow Instagram brat ‘Woah Vicky’ at Coachella. Not content just being extremely fortunate in life, she’s garnered a followed by flaunting what can only be her family’s wealth in front of other people’s faces with videos saying ridiculous things.
She supposedly drives a two hundred thousand dollar sports car without a license. Also, Instagram suspended her for using the n-word.
But the facade all came crumbling down when two investigative reporters discovered that the Mercedes she used in her videos was actually her mom’s boss’s work car and the five houses she claimed to own were empty homes being sold by her mom’s real estate company.
8. Toy Tantrum
This kid was making such a scene, a bystander did the only logical thing in such a scenario: film it and post it into YouTube. Supposedly, he was throwing a tantrum over a 3 dollar toy, and he turns into an immovable anchor to try and force his parents to buy it for him. His parents repeatedly tell him to get up, but he just keeps on refusing. One stranger even approaches and attempts to understand what’s going on, and exposes the ridiculousness of the situation.
Thankfully, nobody bought him the toy in the end. That would have been the worst thing to do, as it would have just rewarded this type of behaviour. This clip is sponsored by condoms, no doubt. That kid must have been a spoiled brat for the majority of his life to act like that, it’s just crazy.
7. Brandon Davis
In seventh place is socialite and spoiled brat Brandon Davis, the super-wealthy grandson of oil tycoon Marvin Davis and BFF of Paris Hilton.
You might know him from previously coining the term ‘firecrotch’ for nemesis Lindsay Lohan or calling ex-girlfriend Mischa Barton, “Mischa the Heifer”. Here are just a few examples of his antics…
On one binge Davis spent $300,000 on a single casino night in Vegas. It turns out, though, that he was playing with unpaid markers, which he then refused to pay for. The two casinos had to sue him and the Clark County District Attorney’s office stepped in and ordered Davis to pay off the debt, plus interest, of $323,962.
The man who has lived his life without rules has been arrested for cocaine possession, given a DUI after totalling his Mercedes-Benz, and has checked into rehab twice.
He was even arrested back in 2011 for reportedly punching comedian Ben Gleib. Davis is also known by the nickname ‘Greasy Bear’ because he has more oil in his hair than comes out of his family’s oil wells.
6. Conrad Hilton
There had to be a Hilton in here somewhere, and in sixth place is the younger brother of the famous family, Conrad Hughes Hilton the third.
In 2014 Conrad was on a flight from London to Los Angeles when he, naturally enough, needed to relax. According to court papers he “repeatedly entered the bathroom to smoke marijuana and tobacco”, taking it upon himself to disable the smoke alarm… on a trans-Atlantic flight.
When flight attendants attempted to stop him, he shouted “”I am going to f*cking kill you,” and attempted to punch one of them. He carried on…
“I could get you all fired in five minutes. I know your boss!” the court documents allege. Hilton allegedly told a flight attendant: “My father will pay this out, he has done it before. Dad paid $300,000 last time,”. During his tirade, Hilton allegedly yelled, “I will f*cking own anyone on this flight; they are f*cking peasants.”
Later, Conrad Hilton, after more antics at court, he pleads guilty to misdemeanor assault.
But there’s plenty more where that came from. Like any self-respecting mega-rich troubled child he’s totaled at least one car, this time a BMW in a high-speed police chase. At 21 he faced a felony charge of reckless evasion of a peace officer. There’s no doubt he thinks he’s above the law.
Since his plane antics, he’s violated his probation on multiple counts including trespassing, failing drug tests, and not completing any of his treatment programs.
Oh, and it gets better. Less than a week after receiving his sentence he was arrested outside the house of his ex-girlfriend- for violating the restraining order she had put on him. Who is his ex-girlfriend? Hunter Daily Salomon, daughter of actress Elizabeth Daily and poker player Rick Salomon. Ring a bell? That’s right. The same Rick Salomon who shot to fame for making a sex tape with… Conrad’s older sister Paris.
Of course, Paris has long been setting an example for Conrad, like when she was escorted by police from the stadium during a World Cup game in 2010 for allegedly smoking marijuana. She’s also been arrested with weed at an airport in France, with cocaine in Las Vegas.
Also, she famously stormed out of an interview on ABC after being asked whether she was insecure that her fame might be fading. I think that answers the question.
5. Vorayud Yoovidhaya
He’s the Thai grandson of the founder of Red Bull and… an international fugitive. In 2012 he allegedly killed a police officer in a hit and run with his Ferrari, dragging the man’s body 200m down the Bangkok street.
His family is rich, very rich, and he had his father pay the officer’s family $97,000 to stall the civil lawsuit. To put that in perspective.. the car involved in the accident was itself worth a million dollars. The 27-year-old was charged with drunk driving, causing death by reckless driving, and escaping arrest…. since just a few days after the accident he fled the country. He’s still wanted by Interpol on the federal charges, but nobody knows where he is.
Yoovidhaya’s family is worth $5.2 billion, according to Forbes. At this rate he could run over 53,608 more police officers before they’d be broke… or one officer a day for the next 146 years.
4. Rachel Canning
We’ve all had arguments with our parents, but have you ever taken your parents to court? That’s exactly what New Jersey teenager Rachel Canning did after her parents stopped supporting her lifestyle.
Of course, Rachel was eighteen and had moved out of home. But she still wanted them to pay her private school tuition, $650 a week in child support, her future college tuition and, obviously, her legal bills. She claimed her parents were abusive, and had contributed to her developing an eating disorder.
The judge refused to grant Rachel’s request for emergency funds, asking “Are we going to open the gates for 12-year-olds to sue for an Xbox? For 13-year-olds to sue for an iPhone?”
You’ll be pleased to know that Rachel has since withdrawn the suit and moved back in with her parents.
3. Audrey Lexus
The original spoiled brat of the social media era was Audrey Lexus. Her mom has to take Valium to relieve the stress of having her as a daughter.
She became famous for her tantrum when her mother gave her her sixteenth birthday present too early. What was it? A Lexus. Which wasn’t what she wanted. She stormed out of her party and sent everyone home, canceling her birthday.
Hey Audrey… if you don’t want your Lexus, I’d be happy to take it off your hands.
2. The Beverley Hills Brat
Then there’s this girl, the ‘Beverley Hills Brat’. Her real name is Nicolette and as a fifteen-year-old she appeared on Doctor Phil with her mom.
When her mom lowered her monthly allowance from $5000 to $1000 she just went into credit card debt. According to Joel, family friend, and Nicolette’s chauffeur, she doesn’t have any friends because of the way she treats people.
Her only future goals are wearing designer clothes, being rich, and not working. When Dr. Phil suggested she should work as a volunteer at a local soup kitchen, she started crying hysterically from the thought.
She has beef with her mom and claims she was never loved as a child, only given money, which probably explains her bad attitude. Even so, her parents finally relented and gave her the $150,000 Mercedes G Wagon she had always dreamed of.
That meant that her mother, a doctor, had to take the bus to work. She probably needs a reality check more than an allowance cheque.
1. Liesel Pritzker Simmons
Finally, we have a special kind of spoiled brat. One that uses her powers for good. The Robin Hood of brats, if you will.
Liesel Pritzker Simmons, heir to the Hyatt fortune and child actress, sued her father and cousins for six billion dollars. Yes, you read that correctly. She sued her own family, for six billion dollars. She claimed that they had taken money from trusts that had been established for her and her brother. After dragging on for three years, both parties settled the lawsuit and Liesel walked away with a cool $280 million in cash as well as control over other trusts valued at close to $170 million. Her net worth is now upwards of half a billion dollars.
So, what has she chosen to do with the money she clawed from her parents? Strangely enough… Philanthropy, that’s what. As well as earmarking $50 million for impact investing, she’s given $50 million to start a charitable foundation focusing on education.
She invested the rest in fair trade, sustainable and fossil-fuel-free companies.
On becoming filthy rich she escaped her fame and notoriety in the United States to teach yoga to heroin addicts in India and then to do work doing manual data entry in Tanzania.
“I didn’t earn this money,” she says. “And I’ll be damned if I’m going to screw it up!”. So, I guess there is hope out there!
What do you think? Who were the most annoying, most entitled, and most spoiled brats of them all? Let me know in the comments section down below… Thanks for reading!
