Molly-Mae Hague is switching up her lifestyle after the burglary last year and will no longer buy ‘really expensive’ pieces.
The former Love Island star was forced to flee the home she shared with boyfriend Tommy Fury in Manchester when their apartment was completely ransacked by burglars in October.
The ordeal has prompted Molly-Mae to reconsider the expensive lifestyle she led and she’s now keen to live a more simpler life.
During a Q&A on her YouTube channel, one fan asked: ‘Have your views on having nice things changed since the robbery?’
Molly-Mae, 22, then replied: ‘It’s something I’ve been thinking about a lot recently. The answer to that is 100% yes.
‘In regards to the jewellery I used to buy, watches, nice bags, really expensive clothes and stuff, I think most definitely, definitely, the interest in that for me has just disappeared since the robbery.’
She added: ‘Why would I ever want to own something that could compromise mine and Tommy’s safety? It is absolutely not worth it in my eyes.
‘I feel like people could respond, “who does she think she is, why has she got security?” It’s genuinely for no other reason than it makes me feel more safe.’
It comes after PrettyLittleThing’s creative director was accused of being ‘classist’ when she and Tommy revealed they were ‘fascinated’ by the low prices while shopping in discount store B&M last weekend.
In her Instagram stories, Molly-Mae said: ‘I think Tommy’s enjoying our little trip to Home Bargains.’
She then panned to Tommy as he said: ‘Let me tell you, B&M Bargains, I’ve never seen anything like it.
‘These drinks that you get in the gym, they’re here and they’re 89p. Like, hold on, stop what you’re doing and process that for a second.’
Molly-Mae informed her followers: ‘We’ve really stocked up, guys. Honestly B&M trips are the one.’
However, some branded the influencers’ comments ‘tone-deaf’ with one critic reportedly commenting: ‘So weeks after being called out for her classist remarks, Molly-Mae’s first IG story that isn’t just a photograph is a clip of her and Tommy in Home Bargains/B&M being utterly shocked at the low prices.
‘Does she not have a PR team to advise her against s*** like this?’
In her latest YouTube video, Molly-Mae also addressed the controversy she faced at the start of the year when she said everyone has ‘the same 24 hours’ to achieve their goals.
Speaking about the backlash she received, the influencer said: ‘The reality is, things don’t always go the way you planned. The start of the year definitely had different plans for me than I hoped, which is fine. Definitely now things are starting to get back on track. I feel a lot more like myself.
‘I definitely lost myself in the first few weeks and felt really disheartened that I had had quite a negative start to the year – a very negative start. I was really really upset.’
