Nepo baby nightmare! Sofia Coppola’s daughter, 16, is mocked after revealing she was grounded for trying to ‘charter a HELICOPTER’ to dinner on her dad’s credit card – before admitting she can’t tell the difference between a garlic and an onion
Famed filmmaker Sofia Coppola’s daughter Romy has caused quite the stir on social media after posting a video that painted her as the ultimate nepo baby.
The 16-year-old uploaded a clip to TikTok to reveal that she had been grounded for trying to charter a helicopter from New York to Maryland on her father’s credit card, explaining that she would be spending her time stuck at home making a vodka pasta sauce.
However her attempt to while away the hours of her grounding caused even more controversy when the teenager went on to admit that she doesn’t know the difference between garlic and onion – before she bizarrely introduced viewers to her ‘replacement parents’, claiming that her own are never home.
The video has since been deleted but was already shared elsewhere.

In the clip, Romy candidly speaks to camera from her family’s kitchen as she prepares to make a vodka pasta sauce – before launching into a series of revelations.
She begins: ‘I’m grounded because I tried to charter a helicopter from New York to Maryland on my dad’s credit card because I wanted to have dinner with my camp friend.’
The teen, who has a 12-year-old sister, then gets ready to start cooking but quickly admits: ‘I don’t know the difference between a garlic and an onion.
‘I just have to Google images of onions on my phone. I’m embarrassed.’
Romy continues: ‘Also, I thought I would do this since I’m already grounded because my parents’ biggest rule is that I’m not allowed to have any public social media accounts… because they don’t want me to be a nepotism kid but TikTok is not going to make me famous so it doesn’t really matter.’
She then holds up one of her ingredients to the screen and says: ‘Wait, is this an onion? Because I feel like this doesn’t look like an onion.’
The camera then cuts to show her babysitter’s boyfriend as he pets the family dog.

Another joked: ‘Sofia Coppola’s daughter is how you do nepotism right.’
And a third wrote: ‘Why did Sofia Coppola’s daughter delete this. It’s art.’
