Tyson Beckford

$25,000 Runway Lessons

For Rich Kids

Supermodel Tyson Beckford's runway skills can now be purchased for $25,000 -- at least that's what some rich kid/aspiring model paid the guy recently ... to share his Zoolander wisdom.

The kid's name is Adam Sabbagh -- who you might recognize as the guy who purchased David Beckham's custom Porsche for $227,000 last year -- and we're told, the 26-year-old reached out to Tyson a couple weeks ago for some modeling pointers.

According to sources, Adam offered to pay Tyson $25,000 for his troubles -- and Tyson champed at the bit, agreeing to give Adam one coaching session at his NYC apartment on Wednesday in exchange for the fee.

We're told the class went off without a hitch, and now, Adam's hoping to land a modeling gig at NY Fashion Week next month.

MONEY WELL SPENT, RIGHT?

Two really bad investments.. the Porsche was vulgar, and if he was a little bit cooler, Tyson probably would have done it for a joint.. What a chump.. Now I have to sit here and figure out how I can get some of this kid's money..

Adam, work on not looking like such a tool. Fugly rat-eyed horse face. Please...just stay in the Porsche with tinted windows. It's a much better look for you, and passersby still get to keep the illusion that someone hot may be inside.

Now if someone can give him lessons on how not to look like a gay dbag. the haircut and mannerisms are a dead giveaway. Money doesn't buy class and if you are that desperate to get into modeling that you need to spend $25k for a single lesson, you are an idiot... a rich idiot but a self absorbed idiot anyway.

I overheard Tyson Beckford's best advice to him: You have to blow EVERYONE, male or female.
