11 Celebs Caught Fake Flexin' for the 'Gram

They need to step their game up.

Published May 11, 2017

We idolize celebrities not only for their fame but their riches as well.

But sometimes either that abundance of cash is misused or worse, they don't have it to begin with.

You never know what kind of financial situation someone's in. Maybe it's stunting for the 'Gram that's helping these stars go broke.

Well, we decided to sit back and remember 11 celebrities who thought we wouldn't notice them trying to show out on a budget.

  1. Bow Wow

    Not the fake mansion ploy!!!

  2. Soulja Boy

    Fake penthouse, and then the follow-up, "I swear it's mine!" SMH.

  3. The Kardashians

    The Kardashians do a lot of cropping in IG, but perhaps the worst was when Kim though it'd be OK to take a picture with her daughter, North, but leave her out of it.

    Her explanation: "Her eyes were closed and I was feeling my look! Can I live?!?!"

    Um, yeah. I guess the stunting isn't any less... wait! Yeah, it is. This was kind of harsh. Bye, Kim.

  4. Tyga

    Tyga got a Ferrari for his former boo Kylie Jenner. Problem is, he didn't purchase it and it was repossesed. Wah wah.

  5. Teyana Taylor

    Free ya styleeeeeeeeee 💜💚💙❤️💖 #ReebokKindOfGal #reebokclassic #5411size7ingirls

    A post shared by Jimmy Neutch (@teyanataylor) on

    Sneaker watchdog Yeezy Busta told Complex Teyana was wearing fake “Turtle Dove” Yeezy Boost 350s. This was before "Fade," so we'll give her a pass.

  6. Blac Youngsta

    The Memphis native is known for flashing money, but it could be that a lot of it is fake. TMZWorldstar found that a couple of pics and videos posted showcased prop money.

  7. 50 Cent

    Buckets of Love 😏💰no big deal this short paper. Lol #FRIGO #SMSAUDIO

    A post shared by 50 Cent (@50cent) on

    According to a KTT thread, the photo from this IG post was actually a 2010 Pinterest post of police seizing cash during a traffic stop in Maine. The money, of course, wasn't Fif's. Nice try, fam.

  8. Jaden Smith & Justin Bieber

    Love you brother man

    A post shared by Justin Bieber (@justinbieber) on

    Not only were Jaden Smith and Justin Bieber outed for wearing fake Louis Vuitton, but the brand even threatened them with a lawsuit. Jeez, guys. Just buy the real thing.

  9. Rick Ross

    Wasn't it Rozay who said his heart was broken when he found out Birdman's watch was fake? SMH.

  10. Future

    Looks like Ciara-era Future wasn't pulling in his doe.

  11. Waka Flocka Flame

    One more fake watch, for good measure.
