The millionaire Instagram influencer who died this week in a 60mph motorcycle crash was filming herself at the time of the accident, according to reports.
Anastasia Tropitsel’s social media fame made her a millionaire at 15, and she regularly shared photos celebrating her glamorous luxury lifestyle.
She had travelled to Bali with her Ukranian boyfriend Viktor Maydanovich, 30.
Maydanovich was riding alongside the 18-year-old influencer when her new Kawasaki Ninja 250 motorbike began to “wobble” as she lost control.
Breaking the story of Tropitsel’s accident on his own social media page, Maydanovich wrote: “My beloved girl is not with us.”
He went on: “Please, my friends, say your last farewell to her with your good thoughts and meditations. It is very important.
“She was moving at a speed of 80-100 kilometres per hour along a major road, where everybody goes at such a speed.
“She always rode very safely and accurately.
“Then her bike started wobbling.”
Tropitsel , whose real name was Anastasia Zubrina, came off the bike and despite wearing a helmet suffered fatal head injuries when she slammed into a roadside fence.
The Gold Coast Bulletin reports that an unreleased video of the incident shows the teenage blogger panning her phone around to show the sunset over a beach before focusing on her own face smiling in the wing mirror.
Tropitsel had been in Bali throughout the lockdown period, after taking a trip to the tropical island to make new content for her Instagram feed.
At the time of her death, Tropitsel and her father were in the middle of a very public row about her lifestyle.
Claiming that her business was “collapsing,” he wrote: “Your team is just having fun at your expense. You do not finish your new projects.”
He added “’It is not pleasant to listen to this, but I hope it will be useful. You have only fun in mind. You have to hold on to your mind and start working if you want to live well.”
Tropitsel urged her her million-plus young followers to live in the moment, saying: “I inspire you to do what you can’t.
“I grow your wings and send you to go freelance.”
