Instagram Influencer Who Earns $30,000 A Month Says Her Job Can Be 'Gross'
| Last updated
A Brazilian Instagram model has revealed some of the 'gross' DMs she receives from athletes and married men.
Natalia Garibotto, 26, has said she is constantly propositioned by fans, saying that many of them are celebrities who appear to be in happy relationships.
The Insta celeb said: "My DMs are shocking. There is almost always some guy trying fly me first class to places like Dubai, offering me $50,000 or even $100,000 for my time.
"It's the athletes who shock me the most. The ones who have wives and they look like they have a happy marriage, but they are always in DMs. Rappers too."
Natalia regularly posts on her social media, but she says it can often attract the wrong kind of attention.
She explains: "It always starts with men saying to me 'you're hot', but then when they get ignored it turns into 'you're a whore and you're ugly'."
But it's not just men that give her abuse.
"Often though it's the other Instagram girls who are the worst - I have met so many who at first I considered to be good friends, or co-workers - then they stole from me, and lied about me, tarnishing my reputation."
She admits she often gets showered with gifts, and even gets proposed to 'all the time'.
"For the past two years this one guys pays me to follow him and like his pictures - and he sends me Gucci shoes, and even cash. Even though he knows I have a boyfriend."
Although she knows for the most part it's 'fake' and tries to not get carried away, she still rakes in about $7,500 from her site.
"I have had so many girl crushes on Instagram, who when you meet them in real life they don't look anything like their photos. Because Instagram demands perfection, sometimes I feel like I want to get my nose done, or have fat transferred to my butt."
She says that she thinks she's worked out why she has so many followers, saying: "People follow me for my butt. The perfect Insta shot, for me, is myself oiled up on the beach with a bright little bikini showing my butt off."
However, one aspect of her career does put her off: "The idea of them pleasuring themselves to my photos is gross. But it does help my self esteem when I have people come up to me in real life and say they like how I look. It means at least I look like my photos!"
