A RUSSIAN rapper has caused a stir online after he appeared to gift his two year old son a £100k Lamborghini.
Timur Ildarovich Yunusov, 37, better known by his stage name Timati, claimed he gave the supercar to the youngster for “when he is older.”
In the meantime, the artist has handed the boy a toy version of the model to play with.
The viral clip that revealed the bizarre gift was shared on Instagram for the artist’s army of 16.7million followers.
In the video, the rapper is seen carrying his young son into a car dealership where he leads him to a toy supercar.
He then proceeds to remove a real car cover revealing a 640-horsepower Lamborghini Aventador SVJ worth about 18 million rubles (£100,000).
He claims the lavish gift is for the boy, despite the 16-year wait until he is old enough to drive.
Timati has two children, daughter Alisa, 7, with model Alena Shishkova, and little Ratmir, 2, from a relationship with TV presenter and model Anastasia Reshetova
He also owns a network of barbershops, tattoo parlors and fast food restaurants located in the largest cities of Russia.
According to the news site StarsLife, Timati said: “When my daughter and my son grow up, they will have all my cars at their disposal.”
The Russian star also confirmed that he will enjoy the Lamborghini himself before passing on the car to his young son.
The viral video, captioned "One for the summer, the second for when he is older," has now been viewed over 10million times with a huge number of comments.
One Instagram follower reacted: “A great man who has achieved a lot becomes the best father!”
Another said: "Oh, I feel a real heartbreaker is growing up! He looks like a boss behind the wheel.”
A third joked joked:" Adopt me please, Timati."
However, others criticised the father for his actions, citing the harmful effects of spoiling the young child and lavishing him with expensive gifts.
Child psychologist Mikhail Zotov told the Blitz +portal that “the child is not yet aware of the social norm that a friend is violating," adding that it will be "a time bomb."
He concluded "The task of parents is to explain that the value lies in being interesting to others, and not in the price of things."
