We’re not ones to get jealous but we wouldn’t say no to just one of these cars. At aged 17, I’m pretty sure this chap will be rather needy when he doesn’t get his own way with pretty much anything in the future.
‘I’m used to people being jealous of me – whether they’re teenagers or adults! I can handle all the envy.
‘I know my life is different to other teenagers because I’m very blessed. I don’t have to worry about jobs and I have unlimited funds.’
‘But my life is not easy. My dad has worked very hard to make sure I can have all these nice things. Our private jet doesn’t just fly itself; our pool doesn’t just clean itself; all my cars don’t automatically fill themselves with petrol.
‘My dad has to make the money to do those things. It takes a lot of maintenance.’
‘The jetset life is so normal to me, I’ve been doing it since I was a child. We just have a private jet because my dad hates queuing at the airport.
‘So I love travelling to the Bora Bora or Dubai for a quick holiday. But when I’m in London, I’ll often dine in Nobu or The Dorchester. I order a lobster or steak. I never look at the price of the bill because eating is essential.’
It is not just us that thinks Jack lives a life of luxury, his Mum Jo Stringfellow’s daughter Jodie explains: ‘Jack is Jack. He’s privileged. What can you buy a boy like Jack? He has everything – although he would probably like another car!”
£1.7M worth of cars isn’t the end, his ‘pocket’ money is blown on clothes shopping, with him easily spending £15K in a single spree.
‘Fashion is my main expenditure. People should come to the charity shops near me because I donate all my Balmain blazers that are out-of-season to them! Most of my outfits are worth around £10,000 to £15,000. But when it comes to jewellery or watches, there’s no limit. My most expensive piece is a £500,000 watch.’
