Russian TV star admits to renting a bouquet of flowers for wife on Valentine’s day

Instagram influencers are known for trickery such as buying clothes for photos before sending them back, and posing in fake private jets, but now another tactic has emerged in the form of renting lavish props.

Andrey Malakhov, 47, a TV presenter on one of Russians most popular channels, revealed this week on Instagram that he’d rented a bouquet of white roses for his wife Natalia Shkuleva on Valentine’s Day.

Malakhov admitted that he returned the flowers after posting a loved up picture with his wife on social media page.

His admission may have come as a surprise to followers, as Malakhov regularly flaunts his lavish lifestyle with Shkuleva, 38, who is the publisher of Russian Elle magazine and the daughter of a prominent media mogul.

But it seems that this may be a regular move for Malakhov who said in another post that he also plans to renting bags from two luxurious jewellery brands for another photo shoot on International Women’s Day.

He added: ‘We rented out the bouquet for a photo shoot on Valentine’s Day.’

Malakhov even thanked his wife for saving money from the family’s budget by renting the flowers instead of buying them.

He isn’t alone with his online fakery, with many relying on imitations on their accounts from posing with pop up private jets and buying clothes only to take them back after they’ve snapped them on social media.

OTHER SHADY SOCIAL MEDIA TACTICS  

 

 

Private jets 

Last November Instagram users posed in a LA art installation (left), called The Private Jet Experience, that looked just like the interior of a lavish private jet. Many people took selfies in the plane pretending they were living the high life, but they were really just sitting in a set.

Bogus adverts

Wannabe influencers are using the #ad on posts to pretend to brands, that they hope to work with, that they’re in demand. The trend saw bloggers post pictures of products they bought themselves but they then tag the brand as though they are working with them

Pretend make-up collections

In August it was revealed that bloggers were buying empty bottles from luxury brands on eBay at £20 a time, to look like they had ‘high-end’ beauty collections on Instagram.

Fake wardrobes 

Research shows that one in ten Brits are guilty of ‘snap and send back’ – meaning we buy an outfit, take a picture for social media in a bid to look good and then send it back.
