BEIJING: The only son of China’s richest billionaire reportedly bought eight iPhone 7s worth US $9,584 for his pet dog on the day of its release.

Wang Sicong, 28, son of billionaire Wang Jianlin, the chairman of Dalian Wanda Group, posted two photos of the Alaskan malamute named Coco, sitting on a couch surrounded by iPhones still in their boxes last week, on the verified Weibo social media account of the dog, which has nearly 1.9 million followers.

Coco, 8, dubbed China’s richest dog, posed with her black and rose gold iPhone 7 handsets, the South China Morning Post reported. Wang Sicong, speaking as his dog’s voice on the account, writes in the caption: “Not sure what people are showing off on social media about. There is nothing to show off. I was forced to take action.”

Forbes has put his father’s net worth at $33.3 billion and is the world’s 20th richest billionaire. This is not the first time Wang Sicong has doted on Coco. In 2015, he attracted outrage in China after posting photos of the dog wearing two Apple watches worth more than $37,000.
