Kandi’s daughter Riley Burress turns 16 years old today – and she got herself a new car. Kandi bought her a $100K Porsche SUV. The teen – who is a fan of Nicki Minaj – wanted to get a luxury car just like her fave.
Kandi is also throwing Riley a star studded birthday celebration in Atlanta this weekend. We’re told that plenty of celebs will be in attendance – and some will even be performing.
Riley looks so happy with her new car in the below pics.
Here’s video of her with the new car:
Besides celebrating a milestone birthday, Riley also recently celebrated losing nearly 52 pounds!
According to People Mag, “to congratulate her daughter on the weight loss, Kandi posted a loving tribute on Instagram Thursday to Riley, who dropped from 220 lbs. to 168 lbs.”
“I’m so proud of my baby @rileyburruss! Last year (around September I think) Riley decided to get serious about being fit. With the help of her trainer @iamthekingoffitness she’s lost 52lbs!!!! & she did it the right way by working out 5 days a week & watching her calorie intake,” Kandi captioned two side-by-side before and after photos.
The reality star also gave a shout-out to Riley’s friends, “who worked out with her & helped her to stick to it. They also lost between 40-50lbs.”
Kandi, 42, revealed that Riley, 15, had been bullied from online trolls about her weight, but is now showing off her progress to encourage others in their weight loss journeys.
“Y’all just don’t understand how hard it is to grow up in front of the public eye & in front of social media trolls who make negative comments about kids weight,” said Kandi. “Luckily Riley has tough skin & doesn’t let it bother her but as her mom it used to piss me off when trolls would make negative comments about her size. Nobody knew she was over 200lbs because my daughter is tall. She’s 5’9. & to be honest she wouldn’t tell anybody how much she weighed but now she proudly shares it because she wants to motivate other people who are going thru the Weightloss struggle.”
