London, Oct 6 (ANI): As most families in Britain are facing the prospect of losing their child benefits and worrying about how to make ends meet, a woman has revealed that she saved hers for a boob job.
Kelly Marshall, who has five children by four different fathers, said the handout has never been about paying for nappies, food and other everyday expenses.
Marshall, who has never worked and rakes in almost 29,000 pounds a year from benefits, last year spent 4,500 pounds to go from a 34A to a 34DD.
"I have wanted a boob job since I was a teen. But it wasn't until I had five children that I could afford it - with all the extra benefits I get. Now I hope to have liposuction, a tummy tuck and regular Botox," the Daily Mail quoted her as telling Closer magazine.
"I don't care that it is at the taxpayers' cost. I am just proud of my looks and family - and it's my decision what the money is spent on," she stated.
Marshall, 32, receives monthly payments of 870 pounds in housing benefit, 975 pounds in child tax credit, and 303 pounds in child benefit, giving her an income equivalent to a pre-tax salary of 39,000 pounds, the paper reported. (ANI)
