A popular Instagram model thought of a brilliant idea to make some extra money off of her largely male following. The only problem is her enterprising idea is causing women to break up with their boyfriends.
Cosplay influencer Belle Delphine is an Instagram model with nearly 4 million followers. The 20-year-old self-proclaimed "gamer girl" was doing brisk business selling photos of herself wearing sexy lingerie (or nothing at all) in exchange for cash via Patreon.
But business really took off when she began selling her bathwater for $30 a jar. To those skeptics who didn't believe Delphine was really soaking in her bathwater, she provided videos proof on hr Instagram page.
"Bottled while I'm playing in the bath," she wrote in the caption of one video. "This really is bath water... disclaimer: This water is not for drinking and should only be used for sentimental purposes."
Sales went through the roof, and now Delphine can't fill those little jars fast enough to keep up with the orders. Delphine is raking in the cash, but she's making enemies as well.
A number of women and men have taken to Instagram and Snapchat to complain that Delphine is breaking up their relationships.
One ex-boyfriend said he only bought a jar of Delphine's bathwater "as a joke." Another man complained that his girlfriend dumped him after he paid for a private Snapchat with Delphine. "She wouldn't even let me explain myself," he said of his ex-girlfriend.
YouTuber Brittany Venti highlighted the men's stories on Twitter.com.
"She flirts with these men on Snapchat, and leads them on so that they buy her things. How many relationships has she had a hand in ruining? Just because these men aren't smart doesn't make her get away with this Scot-free because she's a woman," Brittany said.
"She manipulated and LED THEM to believe she is interested by flirting, sending selfies etc. It's not right. She gets to be critisized [sic] too. Reading stories like this hurts."
