Barry Hall told 60 Minutes earlier this week that he and his girlfriend Lauren Brant ran out of income & # 39; after his dismissal of Triple M in June.
But the former AFL star showed no signs of financial strain on Thursday when she picked up a new Holden Trailblazer Z71 from a dealership in Melbourne.
The 4WD flash, which sells for around $ 57,000, was given to Barry by Lauren, who proudly shared a photo of the new vehicle on Instagram.
Happy as Barry! On Thursday, Lauren Brant gave her partner Barry Hall a $ 57,000 Holden 4WD … less than a week after he claimed that they "had no income". after his dismissal of Triple M
"So this happened today," Lauren said with her picture of the car, which had a large red bow on the hood.
Happy Father's Day, Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas for the next 5 years! @ barryh01 & # 39; added.
Barry was photographed in the corner of the excited radiant snap as he held Miller, the 15-month-old's son, in his arms.
Hmm! Given your current financial situation, it is not clear if Lauren actually bought the vehicle or if it was delivered to the couple as part of a sponsorship agreement with a Holden dealer. The couple is represented with their son Miller, 15 months earlier this year
The family-sized vehicle, which has a full leather interior, is perhaps an investment in the future of Lauren and Barry as it has plenty of room for any other child they may have.
However, given your current financial situation, it is not clear if Lauren actually purchased the vehicle or if it was delivered to the couple as part of a sponsorship agreement with a Holden dealer.

The television interview came two months after Barry made vulgar comments on Triple M about the pregnant wife of another former AFL star.
On June 29, he was making pre-game comments with St Kilda legend, Leigh Montagna, when he made an offensive comment about Leigh's pregnant wife, Erinn.
The panel was discussing the fact that it had recently undergone a 'sweep', a technique used by medical professionals to try to induce labor.
Dismissal: Barry's employment with Triple M ended on June 29, immediately after he made a vulgar comment on the air about the pregnant wife of another former AFL player
Barry "joked" that the doctor behaved in a sexually inappropriate manner, which triggered the laughter of the other panelists.
"It was not rehearsed, it was an improvised comment inappropriate for the air," he later told 60 Minutes.
& # 39; Should not have been on the radio. It was a great c ** k above & # 39;
Barry's employment with the network was terminated immediately, and the station issued an apology to his listeners.
