Sussanne didn’t seem fazed by the recent claims she recently went on a shopping spree for Instagram followers.
The actress and influencer, who has been a part of Sydney’s social scene for the past three years, shut down her social media pages last week after she was accused of being a ‘pretentious socialite’.
Jamie Azzopardi, a prominent Sydney stylist, accused the self-described ‘award-winning writer’ of exaggerating her popularity with ‘fake’ Instagram followers to gain access to red carpet events, sponsorships and media gigs.

After months of whispering about her credibility, Azzopardi, who has known Susan for years, opened the floodgates with a tell-all interview for the So Dramatic podcast.
“It fascinates me how she went from 200,000 followers pre-lockdown to 1.2 million and is on a reality TV show where she is a representative of influencers,” he added.
According to Azzopardi, publicly available data on Social Blade, a website that tracks analytical information for social media platforms, she ‘bought 75,000 followers’ ahead of Sydney Fashion Week – and ‘challenged’ to prove Suzanne wrong ‘ Gave.
He also claimed that Susan bought automated comments, views and likes in an attempt to increase her Instagram engagement to match her inflated follower count, a claim she denied to Daily Mail Australia.

The influencer, who has been a part of Sydney’s social scene for the past three years, shut down her social media pages last week after she was accused of being a ‘shamed socialite’.
‘Just release your insight, and I’ll stop talking. I admit I’m wrong, I don’t do it often, but I will say publicly that I was wrong.
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia earlier this month, an emotional Susan denied buying followers and said her numbers were so high because she is a ‘go-getter’.
However, Social Blade statistics show that her followers have jumped by several thousand at once without explanation, which is extremely rare and often indicates bot activity.
A prominent Sydney stylist, Jamie Azzopardi (pictured), recently accused a self-described ‘award-winning writer’ of gaining access to red carpet events, sponsorships and media gigs with ‘fake’ Instagram followers.
His followers have increased by 531,400 in the past year without explanation, an unusual increase for someone relatively unknown.
The growth rate for accounts of similar size to Suzanne’s is only 12.04 per cent per annum.

The Sydney-based influencer, who describes herself as an ‘actor and bestselling award-winning writer’ on Instagram, said she works ‘hard’, and has a huge following because she’s been around for a long time.
‘Before moving to Australia, I worked as a fashion designer. I have traveled all over the world. I have articles in Nigeria. I sing too,’ Suzanne explained.
‘I’ve worked with international artists internationally, not just in Africa,’ he said.
Speaking to Daily Mail Australia, Susan dismissed all of Azzopardi’s claims and denied that she was misleading brands with her viewership numbers.
‘It pains me to hear such words. These ridiculous claims are sad and pathetic and so childish,’ Suzanne said of Azzopardi’s allegations.
Suzanne’s manager at a Sydney PR agency, Marcuson Sparks, also issued a statement denying the ‘fake socialite’ claims.
‘Suzanne stars in The Challenge, a major national reality show on Channel 10 and has had an amazing career over the past 12 years,’ he told Daily Mail Australia.
‘ Suzanne starred alongside Jane Seymour in Ruby’s Choice earlier this year, she is the author of a second book due out in 2023. She is also a fashion influencer, model and is extremely popular on social media.
‘A huge fan of Suzanne, and I’m really proud to be her manager. Thank you for your recent enquiry. This is #fakenews.
While Daily Mail Australia is not suggesting Susanne necessarily pays for her followers, a report by HypAuditor suggests that only 45.25 per cent of her followers ‘look authentic’.
Fake profiles often have usernames with strange combinations of numbers and letters. Many of Suzanne’s followers have such usernames.
Most of their posts are filled with generic and poorly written comments from profiles that appear to be fake.
There have also been instances where duplicate comments have been left under the same post, which appears to have increased the engagement of the post.
