Tila Tequila Begs for Rent Money, Actually Gets It

Tila Tequila may be an alleged Nazi sympathizer who dresses her daughter up like Hitler and may or may not believe she is a cyborg alien.

But she's still a human being!

Tila Tequila, Daughter

This must be the line of thinking taken by a handful of folks out there who have gathered online in order to help Tequila overcome her latest financial troubles.

The former Celebrity Big Brother contestant opened a GoFundMe page last week, asking fans to donate so that she could afford rent and furniture.

It's not surprising that Tila would make such a request, given her track record of ... well, being shameless online. There's no sugar-boating it.

But it has taken us aback that she surpassed her goal of receiving $2,500 for herself and her young daughter in just six days.

"The reason why I am creating this GoFundMe campaign is because they have raised the rent at my old home to $4,500 a month," she wrote, explaining:

"And being a single mother without any support from the father, it can sometimes be very tough taking care of 2 people with only a 1 person income."

That's not an abnormal statement on its own of course.

"Right now I need to raise some money so that I can move into my new home and get it furnished for my daughter and I," she added.

"The last apt I was at came fully furnished."

"That’s why it was so expensive, but I’d rather save money for my daughter than keep wasting money each month like that.

"So I basically need to buy all the furniture and beddings from scratch to start over if we are to move."

"It is going to cost a lot to start off," Tila pleaded, surprisingly coherently, "and that is why I am asking you all for your help!"

"Most people would be so ashamed or embarrassed, but I’m not," she said of her straightforward online begging.

"This is for my daughter so we won’t be homeless and she won’t starve.”

Perhaps it was the uncharacteristic lack of insane rambling from the troubled Z-Lister - who believes the Earth is flat and who may very be an alien messiah who has seen Jesus - that somehow convinced people out there to put money into her account.

Upon surging past her stated fiscal goal, Tila once again took to Twitter and said she plans on calling every single person who donated in order to thank them for their kindness.

“Oh my God!" Tequila gushed. "I cannot believe we actually not only reached our goal, but have actually gone PAST it!"

"This is truly a humbling experience," she concluded.

Here's hoping she's telling the truth (sorry, but her past history is cause for major side-eye) and that she uses the money wisely.

Tila Tequila Quotes

They are much hotter this time. Before season 1, I didn't know that I would be into the dikish kind of girls. I thought I was only into lipstick lesbians. But the show actually helped me open up and I realized that I do like the butchy girls a lot.

I think nerdy stuff is sexy. I like to watch the History Channel and learn about the universe, quantum physics and stuff like that.
