Zari, 42, was reacting to a fan who messaged her to tell her that her body has changed.
Zari: I may no longer look so 'glamorous but I'm still gonna slap'
Socialite Zari Hassan, alias Zari, has said she is no longer as attractive as some of her fans expect her to be because responsibilities have taken a toll on her health.
"Hey honeys [sic], so I got a DM [direct message] from someone who was like, oh you are looking too old, oh your eyes are tired, and blah, blah, blah. Behind the scenes I work so hard, this is a part of me that you don't see," Zari said in a video seen by this reporter.
"Like, I literally run colleges across South Africa. Very successful colleges. Brooklyn City College and Brooklyn Health Academy. I need to maintain that. I need to maintain my kids' lifestyles, you know, if you look at the schools they go to; Crawford International, St. Alban's College, and the [university] where my son goes. Like, that's very expensive."
She continued: "And that's on me. So, sometimes I have late nights, sometimes I have to go to bed like at 2[am] and wake up at 5. And obviously, I'm not gonna look as glamorous as you expect me, but I'm still gonna slap.”
She went on: "Like this morning I went to the gym, I'm looking like shit. It's okay, it's just normal life. I'm sitting in my house right now. No lashes, no makeup. It is fine, it is okay. So, sometimes, just give me a break. I can not look beautiful 24 hours. I can't."
Zari has five children.
