Salim and Aysha Mehajer don’t care about money, you guys!
The newlyweds made this statement from their brand-new suburban nightmare of a McMansion to New Idea, while clad in a series of extravagant outfits reminiscent of a circa-2005 Posh and Becks. You know, when they moved to LA and tried to be all Hollywood?
A white piano, an astroturf-covered bar and a “vast underground garage” that fits his 10 cars — these are the trappings of the world’s most infamous deputy mayor. Seriously, can you name any other deputy mayors? Thought not.
Posing unaffectedly beneath a perspex-and-white-marble staircase, Salim Mehajer, 29, a property developer in addition to his local government role, told the mag that it’s not about rampant, insatiable consumerism (OK, those weren’t his exact words).
Money isn’t important; no, it’s just that he likes to have things no one else does.
Why that has to be 10 cars including a Ferrari and a Rolls Royce, and a “personalised swimming pool” (is his face at the bottom of the pool in mosaic tile? That would be amazing, actually. If I was a rich girl, la la la la etc), and a “moss-clad outdoor sauna” as opposed to, say, a sixth thumb, or a pet ocelot, is just semantics.
As he sat in his private dressing room in a pair of Louis Vuitton slippers paired with a dinner suit, Mehajer told New Idea that he doesn’t even know what that over-the-top wedding really cost.
And as for suggestions he’s had some alterations done in the facial department, he is shocked and appalled.
“I take is a compliment that people think I’ve had work done, to be honest,” he told New Idea. His wife insists it’s just a really great cleansing and moisturising routine, but won’t be drawn on her own facial refurbishments.
