Who is Aspen? 'Below Deck' guest Barrie Drewitt's son is a reckless spender, brings home 8 girls on weekends
The UK's first gay dads, Barrie Drewitt-Barlow and Tony Drewitt-Barlow may have ended their 32-year-long relationship but they live out of the same house in Florida, USA. While most consider it bizarre, the former couple is happy raising their five kids together. They are fathers to twins Saffron and Aspen, and Dallas and Jasper, and son Orlando. The men may have split but they have held on to their promising of being there for the children.
Even though Tony brings a voice of reason with him, his health allows him to intervene in the kids' matters only when it's necessary. In the meantime, Barrie has been playing the bad cop. A few years ago, he was worried about Aspen's reckless lifestyle and threatened to discontinue the $10K monthly allowance.
Aspen is the oldest of the brood and it could be that Barrie expects him to set an example, or make something out of his life much like what Saffron has done. Talking to The Sun, Barrie said that his daughter used to be a "spoilt brat" too. However, since starting Barking Mad Cosmetics, she has been focused on taking the company to newer heights.
However, Aspen's interests lie elsewhere. In his explosive interview from three years ago, Barrie worried that his son was "going off the rails." "I’ve had bills coming through for five to ten grand on some nights – and he’s spent a hell of a lot more than that," Barrie shared and added that it's worrying the "amount of girls" he takes out for dinners and brings back home.
"I see a different girl leaving in the morning to the girl who came round in the afternoon, it’s really weird. I can’t keep up with the girls’ names! I’m so confused, he’s bringing so many people home," he revealed and added that on a "good weekend" it's as many as eight girls who leave Aspen's apartment.
That's just the tip of the iceberg. Barrie came off deeply concerned about how Aspen has got "no comprehension of the cost of anything." After Barrie bought him Range Rover Sport HSE, he upgraded to the next model shelling $200K. "But he’s got to stop. He buys all these Rolex watches - he must have five or six, and a decent one is around £45,000 plus," he added.
What's Aspen up to now? The 21-year-old is not active on social media and therefore, there's no way to know what he has been working on. However, previously Barrie had shared that Aspen has modeled briefly and wanted to establish his talent agency.
