Money can be a necessity for us ordinary people. But for these celebrities, it’s just a way to an end. They have so much and spend so much money is almost a barrier for them.
Victoria Beckham – Gold iPhone – $ 34,000
Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham is known as a style icon. No regular phone would do. She had a custom iPhone made by Stuart Hughes with 150 grams of 24 karat gold. She also has a gold-plated iPad that she sports regularly.
Lady Gaga – Ghost Detector – $ 50,000
Lady Gaga has the voice of an angel. But she’s a weird woman. And that’s why we love it. Gaga strongly believes in the supernatural. She bought an electromagnetic field detector used by professional paranormal investigators. The price of the Ghost Detector was a little north of $ 50,000.
Justin Bieber – Batmobile – $ 100,000
We all love Batman. But it looks like Justin Bieber likes Batman a little too much. A few years ago, Bieber bought a custom Batmobile, with the Batman logo, a matte black finish, and suicide doors. And he happily paid $ 100,000 for it.
Beyoncé – Leggings – $ 100,000
While her husband spends a quarter of a million dollars on alcohol (we’ll talk about that in a moment). Beyoncé bought a pair of gold-lined leggings for the 2007 BET Awards. Nothing but the best for her.
Miley Cyrus – Dog Car – $ 125,000
Happy, Bean, Floyd, Mary Jane and Penny Lane – you wish you were one of those dogs. Miley Cyrus is so concerned about the welfare of her dogs that she spent $ 125,000 on a Range Rover to personally transport them.
Ashton Kutcher – Ticket to Space – $ 200,000
It is not yet known when he will face the last frontier. But Kutcher has a reserved seat in Virgin Galactic’s two spaceship.
Jay-Z – Champagne ticket – $ 250,000
While promoting his new album – Watch The Throne – in Miami, Jay-Z ordered many bottles of an expensive champagne called Ace of Spades. The lucky waiters that day walked away with a tip of $ 50,000.
Nicolas Cage – Dinosaur Skull – $ 276,000
We were all once obsessed with dinosaurs when we were kids. Nicolas Cage, the Oscar winner has never gone beyond this obsession. He outbid Leonardo DiCaprio for an auctioned T-Rex skull. The paleontologist who sold him the skull then pleaded guilty to illegally smuggling fossils from Asia.
Kim Kardashian – Gold Plated Toilet – $ 750,000
Kam Kardashian is an attention-hungry woman. And she makes a lot of money out of it. Some time ago she dropped another “look how poor you are” bomb. She and her husband Kanye West bought a few gold-plated toilets for $ 750,000.
Celine Dion – Humidifier – $ 2 million
Known for her extravagant lifestyle when it comes to her beauty routines, Celine Dion turned heads when she bought a humidifier for a whopping $ 2 million. We hope it can pump enough moisture to make Long Island Beach look pale in comparison.
Mike Tyson – Tigers – $ 2.4 million
This is an example of super stupid investments. Mike Tyson had it all. His boxing career has helped him raise over $ 300 million in his bank account. And where did he spend it? He bought three Bengal tigers for millions of dollars. It took $ 1,500 a day to feed them all.
James Cameron – Nut Farm – $ 20 million
In 2013, famous filmmaker and director James Cameron revealed that he had received permission from the New Zealand government. The permit was to buy and operate a nut farm called Pinnacle Grove in the country. Cameron comes from a long line of farmers, so it’s no surprise that he spends so much on this farm.
Kim Basinger – Her Own Private Town – $ 20 Million
Basinger takes the cake for the dumbest and most outrageous celebrity purchase. Even though she’s number two on this list, you’ll know soon enough why. Basinger bought most of Braselton, Georgia (1,751 acres) for a whopping $ 20 million. His plan was to make it a theme park and a movie studio. She was then forced to sell it for a paltry sum of $ 1 million. Now you know why.
Jay-Z – Racehorse – $ 55 million
He is the only celebrity to appear on this list twice. Jay-Z bought the champion racehorse – California Chrome in 2014. He paid $ 55 million for this animal. The horse won the Kentucky Derby, so it’s probably a very good investment for Jay-Z. The maintenance costs of the horse are however very high.
