British heiress, Tamara Ecclestone's mother tells her she has "mental problems" because of her spending, RadarOnline.com can report.
The 27-year-old socialite – the daughter of Formula 1 billionaire Bernie Ecclestone and Croatian model Slavica Ecclestone - admits she loves her huge wardrobe and accessories collection, though her mom gets annoyed when she sees her excesses.
She said: "I am aware of the recession. My mom is always having a go at me about my spending – when she sees all the clothes in my dressing room she tells me I have mental problems. But I can't pretend this isn't my life.
"OK, I feel bad about it sometimes, but it doesn't make me a horrible person. I'm not going to lie and say I don't love clothes and bags.
"Some people need crack cocaine, I just need shoes. Some people collect art, I collect Birkins handbags."
Tamara also admitted she has staff to clean her house, though she undertakes her own chores at weekends.
She told Grazia magazine: "Mom did everything herself – she even cleared her own dishwasher.
"I don't. I do at weekends though. I know it's bad."
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Petra’s big sis recently posed for a stunning photoshoot with famed photographer Tyler Shields.
Tamara posed for a series of super sexy shots, at one point lounging naked on a bed surrounded by one million British fifty pound notes.
“I told her I had a crazy idea and that I wanted her to get a million pounds in cash so we could shoot with it, 24 hours later I was sitting in her bed with her and a million in 50s!” Shields wrote on his website.
And according to Shields, Tamara is a down to Earth gal. “She loves A1 steak sauce,” he claims.
We will be able to find out for ourselves soon, as Tamara will soon be starring in a new reality show called Billion $$$ Girl and is hoping the program will show the “real her.”
