BOBBY Brazier has hit out at a con artist who hacked his Instagram account to scam money from his fans.
The 16-year-old, who is the son of the late Jade Goody, apologised to his followers after they started transferring money to the scammer, who had promised them a £100 return if they gave him £80.
The hacker claimed that “Bobby” needed the money to pay a hotel fine and his fans were quick to help out – unaware that it wasn’t really him.
The post asking for cash, read: “Who can do me a huge favour ASAP?!
"Anyone able to transfer me £/80 I'll pay back extra £20 too got to pay this hotel fine ! Anyone???"
Addressing the incident, Bobby told his followers: "Oi listen, my Instagram was hacked, right.
"And I still ain't got it back so I can't say it on there but I'll say it now, everyone that sent this c**t money, obviously you thought you were sending my money so I appreciate that, and I guess I'm sorry and all that.
He captioned the clip: "If I know you personally then just know if you need a favour I got you and if you know me from Instagram or whatever then it's all love."
Bobby, who was raised by dad Jeff Brazier, has rose to fame himself in recent months thanks to his modelling career.
The teen – who is signed to modelling agency Unsigned Group – made his runway debut for Dolce & Gabbana in Milan earlier this year.
Bobby is Jeff's eldest son, and the older brother of 15-year-old Freddie.
He achieved two As, three Bs and three Cs in his GCSEs and is currently doing an apprenticeship in digital marketing, alongside his modelling.
Jeff welcomed the pair with former partner Jade, who sadly passed away in March 2009 after battling cervical cancer.
