Appearing on the Dr Phil show alongside her mother Nina, 15-year-old Nicolette told the famed psychologist she couldn’t live off such a small amount of money. I mean, that won’t even begin to cover the cost of a Gucci handbag.
“I can’t deal with this,” she said.
Nicolette went on to explain that she’d basically grown up with a certain standard of living, and anything less than that was… Well, let’s not even think about how unimaginably horrific that would be.
“I grew up on a certain lifestyle. She just can’t take that away from me immediately,” she said of her mum.
“If someone took that lifestyle away from her, she wouldn’t like that. And I grew up on it, it’s all I’ve ever known.”
Aside from saying she’d spent $133,000 on her daughter in the past year alone, Nina stayed rather quiet throughout the whole segment.
But Nicolette isn’t completely unreasonable – she said she’d be willing to reach a compromise with her enabling mum.
“I need at least US$2500 a month,” she said.
She then went on to explain the reason she needed all the extra money wasn't so she could grow her designer wardrobe, but because her mum wasn't around much, so she often needed to fend for herself on the harsh streets of Beverly Hills.
"She works all the time. She doesn’t do anything for me. She doesn’t drive me anywhere," she continued.
"Other people would have their mums drive them places... buy them food... make them food, but I have to do everything myself, and I need the funds for that."
