Nina says even after she lowered her 15-year-old daughter, Nicolette’s, monthly allowance from $5,000 to $1,000, Nicolette is still overspending on her credit cards in order to keep up with teens in their hometown of Beverly Hills.
Nina says she recently allowed a family friend, Joel, to move into her home so he could help chauffeur Nicolette around and watch her spending. Nicolette admits to spending her day having lunch in Beverly Hills, shopping and making YouTube videos. Nina and Joel say they worry about Nicolette, who admits to having zero future goals except to not work, be rich, wear designer clothes and drive a Mercedes G-Wagen.
