    Former Bom Jardim mayor Lidiane Leite, 25, is accused of stealing millions from her struggling town's schools while boasting about her life of luxury on social media.
    She's finally getting the attention she deserves.

    A fired 25-year-old mayor in Brazil is wanted by police after accused of stealing millions of dollars from her struggling town's schools while living a life of luxury which she boasted about on social media.

    Lidiane Leite, who oversaw one of the country's poorest municipalities of Bom Jardim, is alleged to have carried out this money-hungry, egotistical lifestyle all while running the city from a coastal town about 150 miles away through the WhatsApp cell phone app.

    "Before I was mayor I was poor, and had a Land Rover," she reportedly wrote on Instagram, according to Brazilian newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo. "Now I'm in a Toyota SW4. I should have bought a better car, because thanks to God money is no longer a problem."

    Her private Instagram account is said to boast pictures of her sipping on champagne at parties, posing with a personal trainer and riding on jet skis with friends, the Telegraph reported.

    "I can buy whatever I want, spend it how I like," she allegedly bragged.

    An arrest warrant was issued for the diva and her boyfriend Beto Rocha on Thursday after police carried out an investigation into the disappearance of roughly $4 million in funds, the BBC reported.

    The diva is believed to be on the run after an investigation found roughly $4 million missing. Authorities also say she was running her town through WhatsApp while 150 miles away.
    Her lawyer, Carlos Barros, has since suggested blame for her behavior on Rocha, who served as Leite's appointed main advisor.

    "She was too young and inexperienced when she took office," he told the BBC. "She lacked confidence and delegated many tasks to Mr. Rocha."

    Rocha himself tried to run for mayor in 2012 but his attempt was thwarted due to corruption charges against him.

    In result of the vanishing funds, the city's education system has collapsed and teachers are not getting paid, the Telegraph reported.

    Leite's former deputy was sworn in on Saturday and has promised to carry out a full investigation.

    If she doesn't turn herself in by Tuesday, a state judge has vowed to seek an international arrest warrant for her.

    Mayors shouldn't have fringe dresses, hair extensions and arched brows.
