Big Brother 2013: Gina Rio's boyfriend insists she is really, really, REALLY rich

GINA RIO (Big Brother 2013)

Gina Rio's boyfriend has insisted that the Big Brother UK housemate really is rich.

Questions over Gina's claim to being a £10,000 central London socialite has been called to question, with pals branding her a wannabe singer who drives a "clapped out Peugeot" and lives in a council flat.

But her boyfriend, Edwin Newton, insisted that she really does have the money.

And he claimed that in reality, Gina gets even more money then she lets on.

"The truth is £10,000 is the lower scale of what she receives. We will go to Harrods and spend £10,000 in a day," be boasted.

The rapper (of sorts) bragged this week: "But don’t get me wrong, she’s a very generous girl and is always finding someone or something to help.

"The story about that council flat made me laugh. Gina has a place in King’s Cross that was being renovated and I stayed with Gina at The Savoy for five months. That story is pathetic! it’s all rubbish."

In an interview with new! magazine, Edwin also revealed that Gina enjoys the "best of life" and even gave him a £13,000 designer watch as a present.

"She likes the best of life. She gets everything she deserves. She’s a princess and I treat her like one. It keeps me on my toes," he said.

But Edwin refused to speak about just where all the cash comes from.

"They are a very private family so i don’t think it’s my place to discuss them," he said.

    Purleese. I really like Gina, but she is not independently wealthy. You can tell from her clothing, the state of her shoes and the state of her skin, The fact she has let the public see her real skin, shows she is in a last ditch effort to get somewhere in life. Gina is really entertaining and I hope she wins BB, but please stop the lies.

      rich or poor it's makes no never mind, it still doesn't hide the fact that's shes fake,
      Anyone can be born into a wealthy family but that doesn't mean she's true herself
      and it most certainly doesn't mean she's got class, because that's one thing this li'll rich kid HASNT got

    • Victor D

      Thank for this post a person with a brain ...

  • BBK

    That's why I'm torn about her winning.

  • BBK

    I believe she is very, very rich

  • jennyjuniper

    If it is alie and she doesn't have any money it could hurt Gina in the end, because many will think she doesn't need the winnings so why not give it to someone who does.

  • The Man

    If she's really really really rich is that why all guys fancy her? Sorry I still don't, but I have got to actually like her. I can't be bought with money like some > probably why I'm skint.

  • barry oconnor

    hmm, i dont think anyone who thinks ferrero rocher are actually posh is the real deal.

  • Doc Hicks

    If she is rich it just goes to prove that money doesn't buy class.

    • The Man

      Seems to buy plenty 'friends' though. I Think I'd rather be friendless and skint than have friends like that.

  • Victor D

    Who cares where the family's money comes from if they have any , she's still a low life self center spoiled bitch . Ugly as hell and if she hates being in the house and has all this money ,tell my why in the world would she come in BB house . for the life of me I really don't know why she is here . its not the money ( she has so much ) So why ? I think she has no money has no friends has no family that really likes her ,There is something about her that's not right ,

  • Revolve

    I don't believe she is rich either. She was constructed in the media with a view to going on a TV show of some sort and is nothing but a fraud.

  • Jacqui

    I like Gina, find her entertaining.. She needs to sack her hairdresser as those extensions are cheap and nasty.. Her skin is awful and puffy so needs to see a specialist about that.. Dexter to win..

    Yeah, she's not rich. She said her rapper bf is very rich, his family owns sauce brand at Harrods. Yet, some research on this guy shows he's from Hayes which is a quite rough area of London and his family most definitely doesn't own sauce brand at Harrods. Also, from picture she posted when she was a kid - some rough looking people smoking next to 5 years olds kids in the background, not very millionaire style..
