Reality TV star Alex Unusual, was reported to have rejected a 2018 Range Rover birthday gift when she celebrated her birthday in february. She has however confirmed the news in a new interview.
She opened up to The Punch that though it was hard to believe but she is not carried away with material things and it was not the 1st car she had rejected.
“I rejected the first car I received on my birthday. For me, it was not just about the gift but where it was coming from. The second car given to me was from love. Responsible fans put their money together to get me the car, while the former was from someone who liked me.
It is okay to like me but I didn’t feel it was right to collect a car from an admirer. He could decide to collect the car from me anytime he felt like. If I collected the car and I told him I didn’t want a relationship later, what would happen?”
The reality show finalist said she was aware that many ladies would jump at the offer but she didn’t regret her decision.
“The man felt I was too proud when I rejected the car gift. But I am not a proud lady. I know many girls will take the vehicle; it was a 2018 Range Rover (for crying out loud). But I am Alex Unusual; I am not the type who can be wooed with material things.”
I have rejected money and material things many times. The car gift was just one of them.
“This year’s birthday celebration was amazing and I am happy I am growing. All my birthdays are always filled with so much love but a night before my birthday, I cried a lot. I had a quarrel with my mother, manager, camera guy and stylist.”
