Keeping Up with The Kardashians (KUWTK) star Khloé Kardashian clapped back at harsh messages stating that she was “excessively spending” when she bought her daughter True Thomson a pink toy Bentley.

The mother of one-year-old True posted a video on her Instagram page of her daughter in her new toy Bentley. In the video, the toddler is seated in the car and is seen playing with her new toy car.

“I have so much fun with her [sic]” Khloé captioned the video.

According to E News!, the cars cost at least $2,000 (R28 351)”.

Some of the star’s Instagram followers felt that she was spending a little too much on unnecessary things.

“Great, another Kardashian in a Bentley. You guys are so oblivious to how your excessive spending looks to the outside world. I really loved your family’s story and now just can’t bear to watch as you spend all this money on worthless materialism. It’s so sad” one response read.

But the 35-year old was having none of it and made it clear that she will spoil her daughter.

“I appreciate this!" she replied. "I appreciate this message more than your first. I'm able to digest what you have to say because of how you stated it. I hear you. I personally don't believe that all we 'do is spend money on worthless materialism.' I'm not here to prove what I do or don't do. But what I can say is that I'm able to look myself in the mirror and sleep well at night. I'm able to do that because I know I'm a good person and life is all about balance. Yes, I do choose to spoil my daughter. I want to spoil her with love and as well with material items. She will also be raised with values, responsibilities, chores, respect, self-love,” she said.

But this is not the first time the star received criticism for her daughter’s expensive gifts, Last August, Khloé Kardashian was accused by one social media user of “embedding materialism in True’s brain” with a gift, People reported.
