An 18-year-old Belfast man has accidentally become the JAMMIEST teenager in the universe.

Dane Gillespie cashed an £8,900 cheque from his granny into his Nationwide account the other day, only to see that there were some extra 0's there that could light up anyone's world.

Basically, he was an absolute millionaire, with a cool £8,800,000 in his possession. For a day, at least…

Dane's mother was interviewed by Belfast Live about her son's bank balance, and it's pretty gas.

"We couldn’t believe it. My son thought he was a millionaire for a few hours. Next minute my husband messaged me with the photograph of his bank account details. It took me a wee while to click," she said.

"He’s going to me, ‘I’m gonna order a Porsche’ and I said, ‘Don’t be daft, that’s not our money, we need to get this sorted," she laughed. That lad has expensive taste…

His mother talked some sense into him;"It was like that for a good few hours. For an 18-year-old being a millionaire for the day, he just can’t believe it. He just wanted to go out and spend, but if you do then you have to pay it back."

"He thought all his birthdays came at once this morning. It’s mad," she finished. Unfortunately for Dane, Nationwide corrected their mistake ASAP, so his good fortune didn't last long.

In a statement to MailOnline, a spokesman for Nationwide said:

"The customer paid the cheque in at the branch and unfortunately the wrong amount was keyed. The error was noticed straight away and the balance was corrected in a matter of seconds."

"While the amount was shown on his balance, cheques do not clear straight away, so the funds were never in is account. Sadly he may have to wait a little longer to buy the Porsche he wants," they joked.

Savage stuff, Nationwide.

We all know (and not-so-secretly) love Kris Jenner.

The devil works hard, but this woman works harder and makes ALL OF HER KIDS multi-millionaires, as well as getting nine grandkids in 10 years.

As it turns out, it has been revealed that Kris Jenner gets a whopping 10% of EVERYTHING her kids make, which amounts to a ridiculous amount altogether.

The woman is a cultural icon, who has not only birthed five children, but gave them the Midas touch and also gave birth to MEMES galore.

Kim Kardashian alone is worth $350 million and make-up mogul Kylie Jenner is worth $900 million, which means that Kris owns at least $125 million. We’re shook.

Remember that quote from Kim’s former sex tape scandal? “As a mother I wanted to kill her. But as a manager….*wink*” I MEAN, COME ON.

It takes skill to turn every controversy and scandal into exploitation, and then rake in the cash as a result. Give her credit where it’s due.

According to ForbesMother Jenner got “paid an estimated $17 million by her daughter in the past year” due to the giant which is Kylie Cosmetics.

Kylie named one of her eyeshadow shades 10% as a nod to the slice which Kris gains from her daughter’s business, which is pure gas.

We’ve been Keeping Up With The Kardashians since 2007, and E! network agreed to an $80 million deal in 2015 and another deal in 2017 for America’s first reality TV family.

The hilarious momager went on The Ellen Show, and claims that;

“Everybody gets paid pretty much equally, ’cause we all film a lot and we all work hard, and we’ve created this show and this brand for the last decade…Everybody’s happy.”

Kris takes home a cool $15 million from the show, so we think she’s doing pretty damn well.

Slay, bish, you’re a gifted woman.

If you have ever wondered about the net worth of celebrities there is tonnes of information here that will surprise you. Who’d have thought that Gigi Hadid was worth that much?

Influencers are on the rise at the moment, with a booming make-up and cosmetics industry and the ever-expanding social media platforms, branding is more lucrative than ever.

Make-up guru and general sass queen Jeffree Star has always vowed to be as honest with his fans as possible, even when it comes to his wealth.

It's no secret that he is ABSURDLY wealthy; as well as his YouTube earnings and side projects, he predominantly generates income from his giant line of cosmetics.

He has now promised to expose any brand who try to meddle with him and his CASH DOLLA in any way that he can, and boy does he have power.

David Dobrik was told by the make-up star that he earns $150 million PER YEAR. *Pause to allow shook people to gather themselves before continuing*

In his recent tweets, Star mentions how he was supposed to create a project which exposed make-up brand deals, but the brand he was working with pulled out in order to keep other clients happy.

He has now revealed how much they were offering to pay him for a SINGLE product; a jaw-dropping $165,000. Dear God.

He challenged another brand to come forward in the New Year to help him in his mission to discuss behind the scenes make-up brand deals, which would be fascinating to see.

It's sure to be a crazy end result, whatever Star comes up with.

Maybe we should try our hand at this make-up artist business?

Public service announcement: buying smashed avocado on toast is the one thing standing in your way of owning your own property one day.

Sounds unbelievable, right? Well that's probably because that statement is from an interview with a slightly misguided millionaire who thinks brunch is the root of all financial evil.

Australian millionaire Tim Gurner was on 60 Minutes in Australia , and had some choice comments about the millennial housing crisis. 

The real estate mogul was asked if he felt that millennials may never get on the property ladder, to which her replied:

'Absolutely, when you’re spending $40 a day on smashed avocados and coffees and not working. Of course.”

'When I was trying to buy my first home, I wasn't buying smashed avocado for $19 and four coffees at $4 each.'

'We’re at a point now where the expectations of younger people are very, very high,' he continued. 

Twitter has been responding to Tim's oddly specific millennial complaint. 

'Wonder how much smashed avo on toast 34k from a relative would buy…' said one. 

It is undeniably tough to get on the property ladder these days, and there are many factors that contribute to this. 

Tim may have had a point that saving small increments eventually adds up to a nice, mortgage-friendly nest egg, but don't go blaming the culinary delight that is smashed avo on toast.

We boast many fine locations on this island.

From our wonderful park-lands, dramatic coastlines and rolling fields, to world-class libraries and ancient castles, we can proudly lay claim to plenty of internationally-renowned tourist gems.

But just for a moment image this: we cherry-pick the best of the rest from the most fun and fabulous attractions around the world… and create our very own (superior!) versions just for the people of this great land to enjoy on their doorstep…

1) Disneyland Drogheda

Hong Kong, Tokyo, Paris, Orlando… they ALL have a Walt Disney theme-park packed full of fun. And now it’s Ireland’s turn.

Located just off the M1, Disneyland Drogheda would boast its very own Space Mountain, Cinderella Castle and Animal Kingdom experience, as well as head-turning daily parades and spectacular firework displays.

2) Circuit de Moneygall, Offaly

A vital new addition to the Formula 1 racing schedule – Circuit de Moneygall would be a world-class circuit holding a Grand Prix to rival Silverstone, Monza, and Monaco.

Conveniently positioned in Moneygall – a town, of course, made famous by Barack Obama – it would have state-of-the-art facilities for drivers, teams, media, and spectators.

3) Sydney Parade Opera House, Dublin

Hosting the crème de la crème of the entertainment world, Sydney Parade Opera House would sit proudly in Dublin Bay over-looking the water.

With acts and performers arriving from Broadway and the West End, Ireland would enjoy year-round second-to-none concerts, shows, and gigs.

4) Wet ‘n’ Wild, Athlone

A water-park to rival the world's biggest and the best, Wet ‘n’ Wild Athlone would attract a steady-stream of international tourists.

Sitting on the expansive Lough Ree, highlights would include tube and freefall slides, lazy and wave pools, as well as top-notch water-sport facilities.

5) Lusk Vegas, Dublin

North county Dublin’s answer to the City Of Lights, this resort would boast Ireland’s very own Bellagio and Caesar’s Palace hotels, as well as a Little White Chapel perfect for a quick and easy wedding ceremony.

Furthermore, casinos and restaurants would be bathed in bright neon lights along the glittering Lusk Vegas Strip.

6) The Rink at Blackrockefeller Center, Cork

Complete with its trademark 5.5metres-tall gilded bronze sculpture of Prometheus, The Rink at Blackrockefeller Center would understandably be a major draw to Cork – quickly rivalling its Manhattan counterpart as the world’s most iconic place to ice-skate.

At Christmas it would really come into its own, sporting a 30metre-tall Norway spruce fir complete with oodles of festival lighting and decorations.

7) The Letterkenny Eye, Donegal

Nestled on the River Swilly and extending to an impressive 150metres tall, the Letterkenny Eye would be a Ferris wheel to rival all others.

Attracting hundreds of thousands of tourists to the town, the wheel would soon be established as the very symbol of Donegal.

8) Palm Islands, Rosslare

The sunny south-east would be the perfect place for Ireland’s answer to Dubai’s spectacular coastline extension.

Palm Island, Rosslare would accommodate a stunning complex of five-star residential units, leisure and entertainment attractions, as well as hundreds of kilometres of unspoilt sandy white beaches and palm trees.

But if you assume these dreams are all a little too far-fetched – think again. That’s because of tonight’s incredible EuroMillions draw. A cool €130million to dream not just big, but monumentally so… allowing the winner to #ShareTheDream with the wider community.

Be quick though: you have until 7.30pm this evening to play EuroMillions a retail agent outlets, via lottery.ie, or using the National Lottery app.

There's no denying that Kim Kardashian is one seriously sophisticated fashionista these days – not to mention one with MEGA earnings.

In fact, her wealth now stands at a cool €75m, with her various business ventures and endorsements raking in millions annually. 

But the 34-year-old reality TV star's career had rather more controversial beginnings: back in 2003 she found initial fame via a sex tape she made with her then boyfriend, singer and actor, Ray J. 

Now a new book claims that Ms Kardashian not only used the x-rated footage to launch herself into superstardom… she also made a killer, seven-figure sum from the video's release.

Of course, most celebrities are desperate to keep intimate bedroom clips entirely under wraps – and indeed, Kim was initially was mortified to think that people would see her and her boyfriend's most private moments.

Until, that is, she enlisted the help of Girls Gone Wild porn baron Joe Francis – a man who helped her turn a potentially damaging situation into a PR winner.

The Sun also reports that a new biography by author Sean Smith furthermore claims: "Until she called in close pal Joe to advise her, all she wanted to do was make the tape go away."

However, Kris Jenner stepped in to manage the situation, eventually securing €300,000 each for her daughter and Ray J.

Crucially, she also ensured that both participants would receive a cut from any videos sold or downloaded – a clause that eventually resulted in €4m in earnings for Ms Kardashian.

Distributor Vivid Entertainment alone was at one stage making more than €1m a month from online sales. “It just caught fire,” one of the book's sources explains.

And it remains the best-selling sex tape ever.

Joe Francis himself was once part of Hollywood's exclusive Paris Hilton set. 

He also reportedly dated Kim’s older sister, Kourtney, and even introduced her to Scott Disick.

These days, the Kardashian clan continue to be regular visitors to Joe’s luxury Mexican villa, Casa Aramara in the Punta Mita region – with Kylie Jenner recently marking her 18th birthday there with a gaggle of friends.

He promoted himself as a 20-something millionaire who was happy to splash the cash on designer watches, expensive champagne and private jets.

Vladimir Wilson even appeared on MTV’s Judge Geordie, ITV’s Girlfriends, and had a slot on Channel 5’s Britain’s Flashiest Families lined up for later this year.

Yet today, he was exposed as an unemployed hoaxer who has racked up significant debts in his bid to be seen as a partying playboy.

The now 27-year-old had claimed he amassed €8m hitting the lotto jackpot aged just 19, and used his supposed winnings to gain access to exclusive A-lister clubs and bars in London. He even claimed he and singer Ariana Grande were friends.

The Sun, however, explains that the reality is rather different: Vladimir is, in fact, an out-of-work salesman who lives in a shared flat.

Appearing on Judge Geordie earlier this year, he showed off his designer clothes and luxury home to presenter Vicky Pattison, telling her: “I am the youngest lottery jackpot winner in the UK.”

He once regularly posted pictures to his Twitter and Instagram accounts to boast of his wealth – but today, both of these profile had been made private.

Some of Vladimir’s photographs included a snap of an Aston Martin, a row of eight expensive watches, a Bentley and a private jet.

He admitted to The Sun that he first made up the lie about winning the lottery when he appeared on ITV2 show Girlfriends three years ago.

He explained to the newspaper: “I wanted to get into Big Brother and reality-based shows.”

The young man has now been dumped from Britain's Flashiest Families and is reportedly facing debts of close-to €30,000. The Sun also reports that there are two active county court judgments against his name.

Those taking to social-media today were less than sympathetic to his plight, however.

Indeed, one said: “This punk has been caught out, now he has to work out how to repay all the money he owes and the wolves will chase hard.”

Mr Wilson told The Sun that until recently he had a well-paid job in Gibraltar selling tax avoidance schemes. Mr Wilson added that he is now looking for work and is not claiming the dole.
