Tamara Ecclestone blasts ‘spoilt’ daughter Sophia slurs

She has been plagued with ‘spoilt’ claims, since her gilded life was laid bare on ITVBe reality show Tamara’s World.

Yet Tamara Ecclestone and Jay Rutland’s daughter Sophia is far from this, as the 33-year-old billionaire heiress insisted her darling ‘Fifi’ is grounded and down-to-earth, as she revealed to Closer magazine the wholly-un glamorous elements of her life.

The 33-year-old daughter of Formula One mogul Bernie was adamant the tot was far from spoilt, as she detailed the list of her ‘typical’ activities, such as a love of Sainsbury’s, her ventures on to public transport and her respectful nature.

Last week, Tamara’s followers were quick to scorn her for ‘spoiling’ Sophia with a life-size cake, mountain of presents and lavish birthday party at a London eatery.

But Tamara insisted her critics are just ‘envious, jealous and insecure’, when she clapped back at trolls on Instagram after she was harangued by commenters on her posts about adorable Fifi’s celebrations.

‘Never do the envy, jealous and insecure,’ she wrote. ‘Be the hustler, the well-wisher, the go-getter.’ She posted the cryptic message last week, alongside the simple caption, ‘Never,’ to reiterate her point.

Echoing her annoyance, she defended her darling daughter in the interview, as she said: ‘Fifi’s not spoilt. She loves going on private jets but she also takes the tube and the bus! She’s even been on the subway in New York.

And she’s addicted to Sainsbury’s. I’ve taught her that she speaks to everyone exactly the same – whether that’s the cleaner of the CEO. When she goes on play dates with the other children she shares all her toys.’

Proud Tamara had filled her social media feed with updates about her daughter Sophia’s very special fourth birthday on Saturday. 

She threw a glittering party, with little Sophia seen starting the day clad in a pair of custom-made  ‘4 Fifi’ pyjamas and sat on a multi-coloured mountain of presents.

Tamara was presented with her first cake of the day, a blue butter cream single tier cake, beautifully decorated with a rainbow and topped with a pink Care Bear.

Later, at a party held inside upscale Japanese eatery Benihana in Chelsea, Fifi was presented with a second, mega cake bigger than the tot herself.

‘Happy Birthday to the special little Girl who is just to good to be true. Fifi is four. Thank you for completing us we love you more than you will ever know.’ 

However not all of Tamara’s followers were supportive of Sophia’s lavish day, with some accusing Tamara of spoiling her child.

One follower wrote of the youngsters presents, ‘I mean seriously, does she need all of them?!’

Another added: ‘This is called being spoilt….. and kids in Africa are dying from hunger!’ while another wrote ‘to many gift’s spolit rich child’.   

One fan blasted Tamara for sharing the luxury day on social media, writing: ‘ I hate social media present piles ☹️ making other parents feel inadequate if they aren’t going to same extreme for their child. I know it has no baring on if you are a good parent or not but I just don’t see the need to share.

‘A lovely picture of Sophia on the sofa or at the breakfast table would suffice. Anyway if I had the money chances are I may do the same but I just would not plaster it on social media x’

Although many fans stuck up for Tamara, with scores wishing the little girl a happy day and one writing: ‘They are a happy family just trying to live their life (money doesn’t come into it). If you genuinely can’t be happy for them, then we all know your bitterness is actually jealousy. ‘

Devoted mother Tamara has a history of laying on extravagant birthday celebrations for her beloved daughter with Sophia’s first birthday party featuring a balloon castle, a petting zoo and a zebra at a cost of around £70,000.  

Zebras, sheep, puppies and ponies were just some of the animals that were seen arriving at the family home, which had been kitted out with pink balloons crafted into ‘S’ shapes in honour of the youngster.

Each animal had its very own station complete with a gazebo and pink name sign and a balloon artist was also seen making his way into the family home.
