Lucky dog: Son of China's richest man dotes on his dog so much that he's bought two Apple Watches for her
As China's richest man worth £25billion, Wang Jianlin is known for his astonishing spending power - and now his son is earning a reputation for his wacky way of spending too.
Wang Sicong, the only son to the tycoon, dotes on his dog so much that he's bought not one, but two £800 Apple Watches for her, according to People's Daily Online.
The pampered pooch, called Wang Keke, wears them on her front legs - posing for a series of pictures on Weibo, China's answer to Twitter.
The set of four pictures were posted from the dog's very own social media account, which has nearly 700,000 followers and is ironically named 'Wang Keke is a b*tch', on Monday morning.
Along with the pictures, a post reads: 'Haha I have new watches! I should actually be wearing four, seeing as I have four legs, but felt it was a bit much so I just put on two, but I cannot wear any less than two otherwise it will not be befitting my status.
'Suddenly I want to ask you all a question "Do any of you have these?"'
A follow-up post was uploaded in the evening showing Sicong using the watch to test Keke's heart rate alongside the words: 'Measuring heart beat showing 59 bpm. This means I have missed you another 59 times in this minute'.
In a country with a fast widening wealth gap, these pictures quickly caused outcry. Apple Watch sells between £820 and £1,300 in China, which is more than the monthly salary of an average office worker in big cities.
Many Chinese media outlets call Sicong 'rich and immature' in the headlines. Weibo users took one step further and bombarded Keke's account – on which Sicong wrote the tag line 'a dog winning in incarnation' - with criticism.
'I should live worse than a dog,' says user Guozaishilifei.
'F*ck, Apple b*tch,' wrote user Guojingmin's watch.
