Dixie D’Amelio has rubbished claims that her younger sister Charli gets more love and attention than her, particularly from their parents, as her sister has become the number one TikTok star.

As far as famous siblings go, there are few on the level of Charli and Dixie D’Amelio. The pair have risen to the top of TikTok, the Beijing-based video-sharing platform that has climbed the ranks of social media apps.

While Charli D’Amelio has been top of the most followed list for some time, older sister Dixie has also surged to own the 12th most followed account in the world.

Charli and Dixie D’Amelio have over 100,000,000 followers on TikTok, combined.

However, Charli’s greater following, paired with limited insight into the D’Amelio family, has led to some fans concerned for Dixie, believing that she is not giving as much attention or care as her younger sister.

“I ran the show, for 18 years,” Dixie said, in an Instagram live. “Like I ran the show – Charli was Dixie’s sister. Like, teachers would call her Dixie’s sister, everything. I don’t care, at all.”

While Dixie dismissed the claims, arguing that for the years before they were in the public eye she garnered more attention than her sister, she also got her parents to comment on the situation.

“Now we’ve got to watch what we say,” Dixie and Charli’s father stated, in the same Instagram Live. “Because we always kid each other, and then if we let you guys into what is just normal banter in our house, people are gonna come after us and say ‘Oh my god they’re so mean’. We have a funny, loving, normal [family].”

Many fans even responded to send their love to the D’Amelio family, with one writing: “Y’all really think they’re gonna shame their own daughter for not being as famous as Charli”.

It certainly appears that fans were getting concerned and frustrated over limited interactions that were easily taken out of context. Let’s hope that Dixie and her parents’ response puts an end to the potentially hurtful claims.

Drake needs no introduction. As one of the biggest names in rap music across the globe, the star has amassed a net worth of over $150 million. Not only is his net worth insane, but so is his car collection.

Canadian musician Drake – real name Aubrey – is one of the best-known names in rap music. With a ridiculous number of awards to his name, he has become an almost permanent fixture on mainstream music charts. As you may imagine, his success had led to him building up quite the car collection.

Reportedly, the total value of his current car collection is worth nearly eight-figures. With his continued success, it is likely that he will break this barrier within the next few years if all goes well.

Drake is a big fan of British supercar makers McLaren, and has a number of their cars in his fleet. One of his personal favorites is his white McLaren 675LT. Costing upwards of $338,000 the 675LT is one of McLaren’s most ‘hardcore’ cars ever, with 666hp from its twin-turbo V8 engine.

Not one to go with ‘basic’ versions of cars, Drake purchased a limited-edition Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. With 700hp on tap, this Lambo will do 0-60 in under 3 seconds, and cost Drake a cool $400,000. Drake has also previously said the car “makes him feel like Christian Bale (in Batman)” when behind the wheel.

Swapping performance for all-out luxury, Drake owns one of the plushest cars money can buy – a Mercedes Pullman. Typically used by royal families and government officials, this high-class Merc is perfect for whisking Drake around in absolute luxury. It doesn’t come cheap, however, retailing at over $600k.

Opting for a one-off car is a great way to ‘flex’ your wealth, and that’s exactly what Drake has done with his $700k+ Mansory Bushukan Phantom. Featuring a custom design, along with a solid gold OVO hood ornament in place of the RR ‘spirit of ecstasy’ the Phantom is perfect for ultra-plush travel.

Drake’s incredible hypercar collection

In terms of hypercars, his collection is as crazy as you’d imagine. His Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir is one of only 12 in the world, and cost a whopping $2,000,000. Drake also has a LaFerrari in Yellow, which likely set him back around $1.5-$2 million.

If you thought the Bugatti was wild, the crown of Drake’s collection will blow you away. He has reportedly bought one of the world’s first Devel Sixteen hypercars. With an alleged 5000hp from its 12.3l, V16 engine, it is one of the rarest cars in the world, costing $2,200,000.

Drake’s custom private jet

Of course, we can’t forget his custom Boeing 767 private jet, but that won’t fit in a garage, so we’ve excluded it from the list.

All told, Drake’s car collection is currently sitting around the $8 million mark, if reports are to be believed. Who knows where it will sit in a few years time.
