Australian influencers are taking over the US headlines, it seems.
And now it’s Aussie nude vegan blogger Freelee the Banana Girl who’s at the centre of the drama this week.
Yep, you read that right.
She really is called the ‘Banana Girl‘.
So what’s all the fuss about?
Back in February, the YouTuber from Queensland packed up her things and moved to the South American jungle to live off-the-grid – naked and fed only by the organic fruit and vegetables she has grown herself.
“11 years ago I renamed myself Freelee during a waterfast because freedom is what I hold most sacred in life,” she wrote on Instagram in February.
“Since then I’ve been shedding the layers that hold me back. I freed myself from the 9-5 slave drive and moved to the jungle.
“I spend most of my day nude; free of restrictive clothing. I feast mostly on organic fruits and vegetables picked from the land.
“I shower in monsoonal rains and drink from pristine creeks. I quit an unhealthy relationship and found peace.”
Not only does Freelee want to be naked all the time in her quest to live a free life, she also doesn’t use makeup, shampoo, or shave.
And despite keeping up appearances for her 425,000+ Instagram followers and her 785,000 YouTube subscribers with constant posts and updates, she claims to live in a tent, using only solar-powered energy.
But in the past few weeks, 37-year-old Freelee’s (real name Leanne Ratcliffe) followers are getting a little suspicious about her supposed “off-grid” lifestyle.
And quite frankly, we can totally see why.
After all, despite her “off-grid” lifestyle, Freelee’s been spotted driving a car and her ‘tent’ definitely looks a lot more like a house.
