Last year Tila Tequila was notoriously removed from the Celebrity Big Brother house after it was revealed that she is a Nazi sympathiser who claimed to be Adolf Hitler reincarnated.
Now Tila has been forced to turn to online crowdfunding to pay for her and her daughter Izzy’s rent.
The reality star took to gofundme when her rent was put up, asking fans to donate so that she could afford to buy furniture for her new place - amazingly, after just six days Tila passed her goal of $2,500, earning $3,074 from her loyal fans.
Writing on the page, Tila explained: “The reason why I am creating this GoFundMe campaign is because they have raised the rent at my old home to $4,500 a month, and being a single mother without any support from the father, it can sometimes be very tough taking care of 2 people with only a 1 person income.
"So right now I need to raise some money so that I can move into my new home and get it furnished for my daughter and I. The last apt I was at came fully furnished and that’s why it was so expensive, but I’d rather save money for my daughter than keep wasting money each month like that.
"So I basically need to buy all the furniture and beddings from scratch to start over if we are to move. It is going to cost a lot to start off, and that is why I am asking you all for your help!”
Despite many calling her out for asking her fans for money, Tila insisted that she was not embarrassed to be doing what is right for her daughter, adding: “I have zero pride or ego when it comes to taking care of my daughter because this is what real good mother’s do.
"We sacrifice for our children and would take care of them by any means possible. Even if that means being a celebrity, and creating a GoFundMe campaign to get hep from my fans.
"Most people would be so ashamed or embarrassed, but I’m not. This is for my daughter so we won’t be homeless and she won’t starve.”
After discovering that she had surpassed her goal, Tila vowed to call every person who donated once she returned from filming a show in Las Vegas, writing: “Oh my God! I cannot believe we actually not only reached our goal, but have actually gone PAST it! This is truly a humbling experience.”
Something tells us that Tila’s old Big Brother housemates probably weren’t among the ones to donate…
