Nothing in life is free — unless you’re Adrienne Bailon’s friends and family.
“I’ve easily lost over $10,000 giving out my stuff,” Bailon, 38, told Page Six Style.
“People hit me up like, ‘Ooh, girl, I love those earrings. I love that bag,’ and they automatically assume I am going to send them a free pair. I’m not going to lie: I’m a total pushover.”
Added the New York native, “My business partner will call me and be like, ‘Girl, you can’t give everybody all of our jewelry. We’re gonna be broke!’”
But Bailon said she’s starting to crack down on pals who request endless swag.
“When I do give it to them, I’m like, ‘Did you post or tag me on Instagram? Are you getting me more clients? Are you telling folks at your job where your earrings are from?” she explained.
The former 3LW singer added that she wants her nearest and dearest to support her fashion lines on their own dime.
“You buy everything from Beyoncé and Ivy Park, but you have to support the people that you personally know and love,” Bailon recalled telling them.
Perhaps a home décor brand is next for the star, who tackles a full makeover of her LA abode on Kin’s “All Things Adrienne Presents House to Home” — a true “pinch me” moment given her humble upbringing on NYC’s Lower East Side.
“I grew up in the projects … in a two-bedroom apartment. It was four of us: my mom, my dad, my sister [and me],” Bailon said.
“So my sister and I always shared a bedroom. We had mouse traps in every corner — the sticky ones. One time I stepped on one; ripping it off was worse than getting waxed.”
