Claudia Schiffer claims an Arab prince tried to hire her for $1 million dollars to have dinner with him, The Daily Mail reports.
Without revealing the identity of the Arab prince, supermodel Claudia Schiffer said in an interview with the Jonathan Ross Show that the Middle East royalty tried to seduce her with $1 million dollars for a fancy dinner but she declined to grab the offer. She added that another “supermodel” accepted the expensive dinner request.
The subject came up when Claudia was speaking about her strangest career moments as a model.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Schiffer herself is worth $40 million dollars. Another million wouldn’t have hurt her massive fortune but it would’ve certainly hurt her dignity.
She said it wasn’t all about the money and that she just wants to be able to walk the street and be proud of what she does.
Claudia Schiffer is married to film director Matthew Vaughn, who is most popular for the movies Stardust and Kick-Ass. Claudia and Vaughn have three children: son Casper, 12, daughter Clementine, 9 and daughter Cosima, 3.
She has been regularly seen to bring her kids to school in supermodel outfits, something that she defended, saying that she puts extra effort in dressing up because she feels pressured by other mothers who would also look very pretty when dropping off their kids.
According to E!, she also talked about how she hated the term “supermodel”, saying that being called so is insulting. She said:
“I want to be taken seriously in the high-end world of Chanel, Yves St Laurent,”
“I don’t want to be some supermodel”.
