Perks of being famous: Kyle Sandilands reveals how his public profile has got him out of parking tickets and large queues at Sydney airport’s customs clearance
He is known for living a lavish lifestyle thanks to his extraordinary fame and wealth.
And now, Australia’s biggest and highest-paid radio stars Kyle Sandilands has spoken about the VIP treatment he often receives.
On Tuesday’s Kyle and Jackie O show, the 49-year-old boasted about getting out of parking fines and jumping queues.
‘That’s a big flex’: Kyle Sandilands has revealed how his public profile and fame has helped him get out of numerous parking tickets in his Rolls-Royce
Kyle said earlier in the week he had avoided a parking fine for leaving his vehicle in a no-standing zone.
Suggesting he often parks in the location without issue, Kyle said he was shocked to come back to his Rolls-Royce to a parking inspector issuing him a ticket.
‘Someone who was obviously in charge of this newbie parking inspector came over and said “no, you don’t charge him” and he looked confused. And I said “that’s right! have a nice day”.
‘That’s the sort of power you get when you do what I do. That’s a big flex,’ he joked.
Perks of being famous: Kyle claimed to have a ‘special lady’ that often helps him skip lengthy queues to be served and processed as priority in the airport
Kyle continued: ‘I’ve got it all. At the border when you fly in from overseas… I just wander past customs.’
‘I’ve got a special lady there,’ he said, adding the person often helps him skip lengthy queues to be served and processed as priority.
The radio host also suggested he used a ‘special exit’ in the airport terminal reserved for celebrities’ discreet comings and goings.

Kyle and co-host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson signed an $80 million five-year contract with KIIS FM in 2019 – reportedly $8 million each annually.
And while some might think that success has changed Kyle, it’s clear the shock jock has always loved the almighty dollar.
In a vintage video posted to The Kyle and Jackie O Show’s Instagram account in 2016, a young Kyle, then in his late twenties, could be seen saying that ‘the money’ is what he loved most about working at 2Day FM’s Hot 30 countdown show.
‘I’ve been working for the Hot 30 countdown for about three years now,’ said a fresh-faced Kyle in the video, adding: ‘And the thing I like the best is the money.’
At the time, Kyle has previously claimed he was on an annual salary of $255,000.
