The Most Extravagant Things Celebs Spend Their Millions On

Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp is one of the biggest movie stars in the world, and he’s so freaking rich that he has his own island. However, his spending has gotten out of control, and he almost got into financial trouble a couple of years ago.

Because of that, he hired a team of professionals to look into his finances, and they found out that he spends a whopping $30,000 a month in wine. And this is not the only time he’ll show up on this list, so stick around!


Jay-Z is not only a music mogul and a rapper, but he also has invested in countless businesses that have helped his fortune grow larger and larger. One of his business ventures is the equestrian business.

He reportedly purchased a $55 million racehorse that won many prizes and will probably turn a profit for him in no time. This industry is surprisingly big and it was a very smart business decision of his!

Michael Jackson

This is definitely the smartest purchase ever made, and it was made by none other than Michael Jackson. At the height of his career, Jackson was looking to invest in the music business to make his big fortune even bigger.

So what did he buy? The entire Beatles catalog for $47.5 million. It is not artists but record labels that own the rights to people’s music, and Michael bought it from ATV Music. Then, every time a Beatles song was played, Michael got paid.

Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner is one of the highest-paid models in the world at the moment, so obviously, she has more cash than she could spend in a lifetime. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that she spent $52,000 on a sofa.

What is even more interesting about this lavish purchase is that Jenner decided to buy the “Boa” (as seen in the picture) because she realized she had some extra cash to spend from her furniture budget, so why not?

Daniel Radcliffe

Daniel Radcliffe doesn’t come off as a guy who likes luxurious things and just seems like a pretty normal guy. However, he got a massive fortune starring in the Harry Potter movies and therefore, has no problem shelling out a lot of cash on everyday items.

For example, he spent $17,000 on a mattress. Now you must be wondering what kind of mattress could cost almost $20,000, right? We are wondering the same exact thing, to be honest.

Kelly Rowland

Kelly Rowland has made millions with her music, first as a member of Destiny’s Child, and later as a solo artist. But she’s as good a friend as she is a singer, because she is more than willing to share her riches with her loved ones.

Rowland splurged $5,200 on a diamond-encrusted bathtub that wasn’t even for her. It was a present for baby Blue Ivy, Beyonce‘s daughter when she was born. To be honest, though, we never imagined anything less from her.

Mike Tyson

Remember when Kelly Rowland bought Blue Ivy that diamond-encrusted bathtub? That purchase is nothing compared to what boxer Mike Tyson spent on his bathtub. For starters, his is made of 24k gold.

So how much did he spend on his gold bathtub? $2.2 million. Even some celebrities’ houses are worth that, but Tyson has so much cash that he can spend that in just one piece of a bathroom set.


This one is particularly jaw-dropping because Bono seems like a very down to earth guy who doesn’t concern himself much with material things. However, when it comes to his precious hats, he spares no expense.

When he traveled to Italy for a concert, he realized he had forgotten his iconic hat in London, so he paid a $1,500 plane ticket for his hat so he could have it in time for his concert. We wish we were making this up!

Victoria Beckham

After leaving her music career as one of the Spice Girls behind, Victoria Beckham became a fashion icon. Every single part of her look is carefully curated and very, very expensive.

From her makeup to her clothes, to, of course, her accessories, everything is lavish and glamorous, and her cellphone is no exception. She spent $33,000 on a 24k gold-plated phone frame for her iPhone 4 when it first came out. We can’t help but wonder what kind of phone she owns now.


Akon came under fire when it was revealed that he had purchased a – wait for it – diamond mine for an undisclosed amount because the diamond industry is known for exploiting workers in Africa.

Putting the controversy aside, just imagine how rich you gotta be not to buy a single diamond, but a whole mine full of them. And now that he owns it, Akon is probably ten times richer than before.

Steven Spielberg

It comes as no surprise that Steven Spielberg is a huge cinema fan, after all, he’s one of the most famous directors in the whole world. But he takes his passion very seriously and is willing to spend a lot of cash on collector’s items from his favorite movies.

For example, Spielberg bought one of the sleds used in the classic movie Citizen Kane for $60,500. To many, it may just be a movie prop, but for Spielberg, it has a priceless value.

Johnny Depp

As we anticipated before, Johnny Depp has no problem spending money, which led him to reportedly be facing debt. One of his many insane purchases includes his own private island, which he bought for $3.6 million.

On top of this 45-acre island, he owns more than a dozen mansions all around the world, most of which he probably rarely ever visits. Hopefully, he will learn to control his spending before it is too late.

Justin Bieber

When Justin Bieber skyrocketed to fame as a young teenager, he made a bank. As the years went by, he only got richer and richer. So, what could he be spending his millions on? Well, for example, a $5,000 gold grill for his teeth.

With the help of jewelry designer Ben Baller, Bieber got a custom-made grill to make his famous smile shine brighter. And that’s not the only eccentric thing he bought – stick around for more!

Mariah Carey & Nick Cannon

Remember when Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon were married? Back in 2010, the happy couple lived under the same roof with their two gorgeous kids, and of course, gave everything they could to them.

This included their own candy room that they purchased for an undisclosed amount. Their kids basically have their own candy store at home, but we don’t know how much candy they are allowed to eat.

Michael Vick

NFL star Michael Vick made a very interesting purchase when he got his first big paycheck. Everyone knows that celebrities make one big purchase once they make it big, but it usually consists of a car, a mansion, or jewelry.

For Michael Vick, it was an $85,000 fish pond. Not only that, but he also spends a bunch of money on the very illegal and cruel business of dogfighting, for which he spent time in prison.

Courteney Cox

During the last season of Friends, each cast member was earning a whopping $1 million per episode, so you can imagine than Courteney Cox has a massive bank account, almost as big as her best friend’s, Jennifer Aniston.

For Aniston’s birthday, Cox gave her the perfect celebrity gift: a $12,000 Chanel bike. And yes, Chanel makes bikes for some reason. Who wouldn’t want a friend like Courteney?

Jamie Foxx

Celebrities will spend thousands of dollars on clothes and stuff in general that they don’t even use, or maybe they use them like once or twice. In Jamie Foxx‘s case, he bought an $18,000 crocodile skin jacket that he never even wore.

According to Foxx, he bought the jacket because a girl convinced him to, but he didn’t like it, so he never wore it. Can you imagine having so much money that you let almost $20,000 just sitting in your closet?

Rachel Hunter

Supermodels make a lot of money – so much that they basically don’t know what to do with it. This is probably why Rachel Hunter bought an incredibly luxurious dog house that retails at $30,000.

That’s right, Rachel Hunter’s dogs live more comfortably than you and they don’t even have to pay rent. And it shouldn’t come as a surprise that many, many celebrities spend this kind of money on their pets.

George Lucas

Creator of Star Wars George Lucas has obviously gotten extremely rich thanks to his creation. So what has he bought with his many millions? For one, he lives in his own ranch, the Skywalker Ranch.

His huge ranch is actually protected by a huge fleet of fire trucks and firefighters for an amount that he hasn’t yet disclosed, but we can imagine how expensive that must be. With all the fires in California, it seems like a good investment.

Lady Gaga

This one is definitely the craziest purchase on our list. The one and only Lady Gaga happens to be very concerned with bad energy and evil spirits being around her house, so she invested a lot of money to keep them away.

Gaga bought a $50,000 electromagnetic field meter for ghost detection. Although it sounds extremely silly the more you think about it, people spend their money however they want, so you go, Gaga!

Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber is on our list yet again and this time, for an even more extravagant purchase. As we all know, he rose to fame at a very young age, and now, what do young boys love? Superheroes, of course.

So it makes perfect sense that, as soon as he was old enough to drive, Justin got his own batmobile, which is actually a customized Cadillac priced at $100,000. The car looks like it came straight out of a Pimp My Ride episode.

Magic Johnson

Athletes usually retire when they’re in their thirties, but they earn enough money to spend it in multiple lifetimes. Basketball superstar Magic Johnson decided to invest his fortune is buying 30 Burger King locations.

We don’t know how much he bought them for, but it was probably a whole lot of money. However, knowing how popular Burger King is, we can imagine that he has made even more money after his investment.


Musician and businesswoman Rihanna has more money than any of us will ever see in a lifetime. She is the ultimate celebrity and lives her life accordingly. One of the things that stands out about her is her perfect hair, which isn’t cheap.

Rihanna reportedly spends $1 million a year on her hair, which is her hairstylist’s salary. She pays him $3,200 a day to keep him on retainer so that he’ll be ready whenever she needs him.


Our favorite repeat offender, Jay-Z loves spending money almost as much as he loves wife Beyoncé. One particular night, he and Kanye West spent a ridiculous amount of money on just champagne.

To celebrate the release of their collaborative album Watch the Throne, they decided to party in Miami, where Jay shelled out $250,000 on champagne for everyone in the venue. The brand he purchased is Ace of Spades, and one 15-liter bottle is sold for $100,000.

Paris Hilton

If you thought that Rachel Hunter’s dog house was a ridiculously expensive purchase, you won’t believe how much Paris Hilton, the queen of all things over-the-top spent on a dog house for her pooches.

The hotel heiress bought a $325,000 dog mansion for her precious dogs to match her own multi-million-dollar house. Of course, the dog house is nicer than most people’s houses: it has air conditioning, heat, and even a chandelier.


Pop singer Kesha is known for her catchy tunes and her flashy image, so obviously she needs to maintain her style. Part of her budget is destined to glitter, believe it or not, and she spends a few thousand on it monthly.

Not only does she use it on her body, but also in her concerts, where huge quantities of glitter are shot out of cannons. It doesn’t seem so crazy when you think about it, cause glitter is awesome.

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus wore her hair long for many years, until the day she shocked the world by cutting it super short and dying it blond. She had her hair like that for so long that everyone kinda forgot how it used to look and then one day, she went back to her old look.

To celebrate her new hairstyle, she bought the most expensive hair extensions you could think of, which cost her $24,000. The luscious locks were flown from Italy right to her doorstep, and they were supposedly the best extensions in the world.

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus is a little eccentric and very, very rich. So when you hear that she spent $125,000 on a Range Rover, it just doesn’t seem strange at all, right? Well, what if I told you that she got it for her dogs?

Yup, Miley shelled out all that cash on a gorgeous car so that her dogs could travel safely and comfortably, with plenty of room to chill and enjoy the ride. Just imagine what the inside of that car looks like…

Angelina Jolie

Angelina Jolie has so many sides to herself that nobody is sure about who she really is. One day, she’s a movie star, the next she’s a philanthropist, and then you see her collecting knives and carrying around a vial with the blood of her significant other.

Another interesting thing Angelina does is fly helicopters. In total, she spent $1.6 million in flying lessons and getting her own helicopter. She also installed a helipad in her beautiful home in France.

Nicholas Cage

You know you’ve made it in Hollywood when you’re battling Leonardo DiCaprio in a bidding war to purchase a dinosaur skull. This is what Nicholas Cage did in the early 2000s at the height of his career.

Leo went home empty-handed, and Cage spent $276,000 at the auction to get the skull of a Tyrannosaurus Bataar. In 2015, however, it was discovered that the skull had been stolen from Mongolia and obtained illegally by the auction, so Cage agreed to return it.


Guess who’s back? Of course, it is none other than Jay-Z, the king of spending. For a guy who can spend over $50 million on a horse and spend hundreds of thousands on champagne, you better believe he has a ride to fit his lifestyle.

A few years ago, Jay bought a Maybach Exelero, a luxury sports car valued at $8 million. If the car alone costs that, just imagine how much he pays in insurance premiums! And the best part is that he has a few more cars as well.

Katy Perry

This one is a truly bizarre one. When Katy Perry was married to Russell Brand, she gave him a very unique and extravagant gift: a $200,000 ticket to space. The trip includes shooting up into space, floating around in zero gravity for a bit, and then coming back down to Earth.

Richard Bronson sold them for a trip that has yet to take off, and since Perry and Brand have been divorced for so many years, we wonder if Brand would still take it. If I were him, I definitely would.

Kim Basinger

This one is a little bizarre but genius at the same time. Kim Basinger was at the height of her career in the 1980s, so she decided to invest her new riches in her home state of Georgia.

She and a few other investors basically bought the town of Braselton, Georgia. Not the whole town of course, but 1,751 acres of it out of its 2,000 acres. Her share was $20 million. Unfortunately, it was a bad investment, and she almost went bankrupt.

Mike Tyson

You’ll be the judge of whether the solid gold bathtub or this one is the most eccentric purchase made by Mike Tyson. The boxer once bought not one, nor two, but three Bengal tigers for $140,000. Why? Cause he can.

Feeding the tigers cost more than the tigers themselves – a whopping $200,000 a year. Therefore, he eventually had to give them up because he couldn’t keep up with the expense. However, the tigers you see in The Hangover are actually his!

Celine Dion

With a legend like Celine Dion, it’s always a go-big-or-go-home situation. When she was doing a Las Vegas residency in 2002, she had to stay in the same hotel room for months, so she had to do some modifications.

To keep her singing voice in top condition and to combat the dry weather of the area, Dion got a $2 million humidifier. A regular humidifier would have worked just fine, but if you have the money, you gotta go big.

Kim Kardashian

Nothing is too extravagant for the Kardashians, especially for the most famous one, Kim. Every single detail of the Kardashian-West home has been carefully thought out and no expense was spared when decorating it.

The toilets, of course, are no exception. Each gold-plated toilet cost her $750,000. Each bathroom of their Bel Air cost over $1 million, and the power couple reportedly spent double the house cost in decorating it.
