Bernard Tomic has bragged about his ‘millions’ in a snappy comeback to his ex-girlfriend Vanessa Sierra after posting footage of him breaking a laptop in half during a tantrum.
“@Vanessa5ierra thinks the leaking of our tires on her OnlyFans will affect me,” Tomic wrote on Instagram.
“Hold on, let me count my millions again.”
Referring to his wealth is a common tactic of Tomic when he is in defensive mode.
“I just count money, that’s all I do, I count my millions,” he said after failing to qualify for the 2018 Australian Open. ‘Are you going to do what I did. Bye.’

He had first introduced the line after losing in the first round at Wimbledon in 2017.
Admittedly feeling “a little bored” on court during the loss of Mischa Zverev, Tomic faced the ire of the media and ex-players who thought he had to give back all the money he made from the tournament.
But Tomic later told the Sunday Herald Sun: ‘You probably don’t like me, but at 24 you can only dream about what I have when you’re 24.
“End of the day, don’t you like me or whatever. Go back to dreaming about your dream car or house while I go buy them.’
The comments even prompted his father and former coach, John, to criticize him.
“He’s my son, I love him, but I’m ashamed of the way he handles his business—it’s not right what he’s doing,” John said.
Tomic and Sierra were on vacation in Croatia when she posted the video and a cryptic post suggesting their tumultuous relationship could be over.
The footage showed Tomic in the middle of a tantrum, with a visibly concerned Sierra watching former world number 17 appear to break her laptop with his knees during a furious outburst.
The video also showed three concerning scratches on her arm. She has since clarified that Tomic has never shaken her hand.
“Ah, here we go,” he hears you say.
Sierra, replies, “Break it, break it all you want.”
She hinted at trouble in paradise when she shared the images on her public Instagram account, which has 429,000 followers.
Vanessa Sierra has rekindled speculation about her relationship in her latest Instagram post
On Sunday, Vanessa Sierra showed her fans her two destroyed Apple laptops
“Don’t mess with a tennis player’s ego. To replace the 16k worth of damage from his little tantrum. I leak a private tape to my OnlyFans. I’m not sorry,” Sierra wrote alongside the images.
She later expressed viewers’ concerns about her well-being after the tantrum and the earlier video showing the cuts on her arm.
‘For anyone who asks: I AM OK. I gave myself time to take care of my mental health before posting anything. The material items are replaceable, she wrote.
“Just to clarify that he didn’t and never had my hands on me.”
When a fan commented that the video was a stunt or that she wouldn’t refer people to her “other account,” Sierra replied, “The video is here.”
She also posted the video to her private account.
It is unclear whether Sierra and Tomic are still in a relationship after the fight
Tomic and Sierra also made headlines during their pre-Australian Open quarantine in Melbourne
“Here it is guys as promised. I was mad at him for not checking on me while I was in the hospital. The fight escalated and he ruined my livelihood,” she wrote.
It remains unclear whether Sierra and Tomic are still a couple.
An earlier, now-deleted Instagram video of Sierra first hinted at a possible breakup with Tomic, with the broken laptops and three scratches on her arm.
“$16,000 in damage. Can’t work at the moment and half a million in crypto is locked,” she captioned it.
“I’ll give $100 to the first person to guess what happened.”
Hours later, the brunette beauty posted cryptic clues suggesting she may have broken up with Tomic.
“I have always been honest and raw with you about my life, both my ups and downs despite possible judgment,” she wrote.
“And you’ve always been incredibly supportive and my rocks. I’ll talk to you all when I’m ready.’
She also posted a photo captioned “fool me two two” featuring a broken heart emoji.
The drama between Tomic and Sierra was cashed in on her disgraced YouTube prank friend, Luke Erwin.
Ouch! Vanessa acknowledged that she cheated on her boyfriend and said, “Yeah, what I did was wrong, but Luke, you also know you deserved it. And you know what? I’ve done it other times too’
Erwin, 27, uploaded a clip to TikTok hours after Sierra shared Tomic’s anger.
“And everyone thought the relationship between me and Vanessa was insane,” Erwin said in the video.
“I’ve heard there’s a crazy amateur tennis player trying to take down all the laptops.
‘I have got you. I’ll save you!” he added before picking up a stack of laptops before running out of the room.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Sierra for comment.
Meanwhile, Sierra settled her feud with comedian Dave Hughes after he claimed on 2Day FM Monday that she told him she was no longer dating Tomic.
She later claimed she hadn’t said anything like that and that her conversation with Hughes about Tomic – which took place via Instagram DMs – had been “off the record.”
Sierra resolved their disagreement, saying on Instagram Stories: “I just want to clarify that there is absolutely no – and never was – beef between Hughesy and me. He is a good person. It was a misunderstanding.
She added: ‘He is human. People make mistakes. And we arranged it between us.
‘We are friends. So people don’t send him hate [on social media].’

Hughes had tried Tuesday to draw a line under his feud with Sierra after angering the model earlier in the week by “confirming” her split from the former number 17 in the world.
While he didn’t fully retract his claims, Hughes acknowledged on 2Day FM’s the morning shift he’d gone too far by saying the pair were no longer together — noting how the Love Island star had told him their conversation was “off the record.”
“I never said they broke up,” Hughes said. “I said she sent me some DMs. I didn’t say what she said in the DMs.”
He continued: “I certainly shouldn’t have said ‘it’s fair to say they broke up.’ I shouldn’t have said that… and now I apologize, Vanessa.
“I hope we can build a bridge…so we can be friends again.”
The saga began on Monday when Hughes claimed on the air that Sierra had confirmed to him “off the record” that she had divorced Tomic.
The reality star had asked for parts of their Instagram conversation to be kept ‘off the record’.
Hughes agreed and didn’t share the specifics of their chat, but he did tell listeners “it’s fair to say they broke up” — referring to Sierra and Tomic.
“Once she said ‘off the record’ I didn’t say what she told me, and I won’t tell you. I’m a great guy,” he clarified.
Vanessa later denied confirming the split at all, posting on Instagram Stories: “To anyone who listened to Hughesy on the radio, I’ve never confirmed a split.”
My first response ‘I don’t talk to the media’ does not count as a response to his DM. Obviously off the record means nothing these days,” she added using the hashtag #fakenews.
Last week, Tomic found out that he did not qualify for the French Open.
