AN INSTAGRAM millionaire who’s golden Porsche was vandalised now faces claims that it was a mate who did it for “publicity.”
Lak Sira, 22, from Birmingham, claimed his £80,000 luxury car was targeted after he parked it overnight in upmarket Knightsbridge in West London.

But a photograph exclusively obtained by The Sun Online shows the car was spray painted in what appears to be a car park by “one of his mates.”
A source said: “He’s made a lot of money from Forex trading. They done it to amass more Twitter and Instagram followers.
“He spray painted his car just to get more followers.
“It looks like one of his mates did it.”
Lak claimed the words “w***ker” and “s***” were spray-painted in black letters on the car.
He even posted a link to the news story and said: “I felt like crying.”
It comes as Lak, who earns £200,000 a year by running an online trading company, Lamborghini Gallardo burst into flames on the motorway.
The entrepreneur had been on his way to London when he smelt petrol and was forced to pull over on the hard shoulder near Birmingham.
He then jumped from the gold chrome-plated Gallardo after hearing a loud bang and watched helplessly as the back of luxury vehicle was engulfed in flames.
Shocking pictures show the flaming wreckage as well as the blackened remains of the gutted vehicle after fire crews had extinguished the blaze last Friday.
Lak has blamed the garage’s negligence and said he is looking at taking legal action against the dealership.

He said: “We had only gone one junction when my girlfriend smelt petrol in the car, so I called the garage’s mechanic.
“He said ‘the car has just been for a service and it is usual to smell a bit of fuel’, so there wasn’t a problem.”
The Sun Online contacted Lak for comment.
