Gemma Collins has claimed that she got the last laugh after a clothing brand called her “too fat.”
The former TOWIE star – who has an Essex boutique selling plus-size items – has shared on getting revenge on a brand – which she did not name – after they told her to “lose weight” when she started her reality TV career.
In a new interview, Gemma, 40, says that the company did not want her to represent them due to her shape but then years later they came knocking on her door – which she claims led to her being able to get payback by fleecing thousands from them.
“[The clothing brand] sat there telling me I was too fat, go off, lose weight, come back to them,” she told The Times.
Gemma then told how the brand reached out to her last year and offered her the hefty £120,000 deal.
She then says she took the cash before ditching them.
“I thought, ‘I’m gonna take the money, f*** ’em off at the end of it’, and that was what I did. I work with Valentino now,” she told the outlet.
Gemma’s savings account is thought to be looking good following reports that video app TikTok who are said to be paying her £200,000 for a new collaborative project.
A source told The Sun: “Gemma earned enough cash to wrap her Christmas presents with fifty pound notes this year.
“She knows how to hustle and works hard for her cash – and bagging over £200,000 for teaming up with TikTok was a nice way to round off the year.”
“After working her socks off over the past 12 months, Gemma has put her feet up over Christmas but come the New Year she’ll be back out there. In 2022 Gemma has vowed to work even harder – fans have much to look forward to.”
