Money is clearly not an issue for Francesca Eastwood.

As first reported by TMZ, the daughter of legendary actor Clint Eastwood set a $100,000 Birkin handbag on fire as part of a photo shoot with her celebrity photographer boyfriend Tyler Shields. And if that wasn't outrageous enough, Francesca then sliced the red crocodile bag in half with a chainsaw while Tyler snapped away!

But of course, Tyler says the controversial display was all done in the name of artistic expression. "Destruction is a beautiful version of freedom," wrote Tyler on his website. Oh-kay. We could certainly think of more practical items to destroy or how that money could be put to better use.

Fans haven't been responding too kindly to Francesca's actions though--TMZ has also reported that she is now receiving death threats because of the fiery shoot! Of course, don't be surprised to see the after-effects of all this play out on her E! reality show Mrs. Eastwood and Company, which premiered earlier this month and features Francesca alongside her younger sister Morgan and mom Dina.

What do you think of Francesca's display of wealth?
