Kandi Burress's daughter, Riley, turned 17 years old this weekend and the reality star decided to celebrate her birthday by begging her fans for money.

Riley, who is daughter to the multi-millionaire Real Housewives of Atlanta reality star, asked her fans on Instagram to send her some money - via cash app as "support." Riley wrote, "Show me some love."

And by love, she meant money.

The 17 year old added, "My mom has money I don't."

Here's the post:


Almost immediately fans of Riley went into her comments and blasted her for the request. The fans also inquired whether her mother Kandi knew of Riley's unorthodox request.

Comments ensued where instead of people wishing the high school senior a happy birthday, they questioned why she needed to ask for money to begin with.

“Wait a minute lololol not the cash app sis…shidddd YOU got the money boo! 😂❤️😘🤟🏾 Happy Birthday!!!”

“Girl your drive Porsche leave me alone … lol Happy birthday 🎉🎈”

“Rich ppl asking for money from poor ppl. Sounds like the government.”

But her edited caption didn’t quiet fans as they discussed the wealth Burruss has amassed with her career with Xscape, as a solo artist and as a reality TV star.

“Girl your mother richer than all of us put together stooopp 😂”

“Ur mom co-wrote no scrubs naaaa tf 😂”

Well, it turns out that Kandi not only knew about Riley's request, she encouraged and promoted it. Minutes after Riley posted her BEGGING message, Kandi re-posted it on her page.



In an Instagram Story from Riley's birthday on August 22, The Real Housewives of Atlanta mama showed her mini-me blowing out the candles on a cake that was festooned with hearts. After serenading her daughter as only a professional singer can, Kandi had to put in a quick plug for the dessert she made herself. "Look at this good old pound cake that I made for my baby girl!" she said.
