8+ Over The Top Items Celebs Purchased Like It Was Nothing

Sarah Kester 14 Jan 2020

Mo' money, mo' problems.

Or at least, that's what happened when these filthy rich celebs got a little too carried away with money and bought these 10+ expensive things that they really didn't need.

Ah, to be rich...

Celebrities have a lot of privileges.

They can get in free to tons of places, have private jets on hand, and can basically get away with almost anything.

The best part about being a celebrity (in my opinion anyway) is the money.

Giphy

Sure, money doesn't buy you happiness, but it does buy you a lot of stuff.

Load Comments

And some celebs definitely take advantage of all the potential things that they can buy.

Instagram | @kyliejenner

And some of these purchases are nothing short of outrageous.

Load Comments

So we're here to walk you through some of the most ridiculous purchases made by celebs!

Because hey, we may not be millionaires, but it's fun to see what millionaires do with their money.

1. Kendall Jenner - $52,000 on a couch

Switch Modern/Edra

While most of us were buying secondhand couches online for our first place, Kendall Jenner was pimpin' out her home with a $52,000 couch!

Load Comments

For $52,000, you'd think it was made out of gold or something.

Giphy | The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

But, nope, it's not.

"[It's] all woven and a really groovy navy with purple shimmer. It works perfectly in the space!" the model gushed about the boa-shaped couch designed by the Campana brothers for Edra.

2. Tyrese Gibson - around $100,000 on a private island

Forget ponies, this Fast & Furious star bought his daughter an island!

He did so when she was just eight at the time and they called it "Love Island."

Load Comments

They're probably going to have to change that since Love Island is now the name of a TV show where a bunch of people go to hook up.

Giphy | Love Island

Not exactly what you want associated with a young girl...

3. Kelly Rowland - $5,200 on a Swarovski crystal bathtub

My Diamond Bathtub

As if Blue Ivy wasn't royalty enough with Queen Bey as her mother, Kelly Rowland, Beyoncé's former bandmate from Destiny's Child, gifted Blue this $5,200 crystal-encrusted bathtub.

What happened to giving kids cheap onesies from Walmart?

4. Johnny Depp - over $30,000 a month on wine

Giphy

In 2018, the veteran actor found himself deep in debt.

One major reason why was because he was spending upwards of $30,000 a month on wine!

Load Comments

“It’s insulting to say that I spent $30,000 on wine," Depp told Rolling Stone magazine. "Because it was far more."

5. Lady Gaga - $39,000 on ghost-hunting equipment

Instagram | @ladygaga

Lady Gaga goes gaga for ghosts — and not in a good way.

It's why she allegedly spent thousands of dollars on Electro Magnetic Field meters to detect them.

Load Comments

"[Gaga] believes in paranormal activity and won't take any risks when she is on the road. It's important to her to be safe from spirits," a source close to the star said.

Giphy

When you see something strange in your neighborhood, who you gonna call? Lady Gaga! Ghostbusters!

6. Kim Kardashian and Kayne West - $750,000 on gold-plated toilets

Talk about flushing money down the drain...

The toilets were part of the $2 million renovation that Kim and Kayne put into their previous Bel Air home.

7. Courteney Cox - $12,000 on a Chanel bicycle

It pays to be Courteney Cox's friend!

When Jennifer Aniston said she wanted to bike, Court gifted her bestie the designer bike.

Load Comments

It came with eight speeds and a saddlebag that featured the famous Chanel "CC" logo.

Giphy | Friends

Talk about riding in style!

8. Katy Perry - $200,000 on a ticket to space

Giphy

It's all too fitting that Katy Perry bought her ex-husband Russell Brand a ticket to space.

After all, he already seems out of this world with his outlandish ways.

Bon voyage, Russell!

9. Elton John - $425,000 on flowers

Instagram | @eltonjohn

What he was doing with all these flowers, we'll never know, but he did once defend his right to buy them by saying, "Well, I like flowers."

Now, if only he could grow some money flowers and throw some cash at us, we'd be fresh as a daisy.

10. Paris Hilton - $325,000 on a doggie mansion

Forget spoiled children.

Hotel heiress Paris Hilton spoiled her dogs totally rotten when she spent major cha-ching to build this 300-square-foot mansion that's modeled after her home.

11. Justin Bieber - $5,000 on a gold grill

Instagram | @justinbieber

Justin Bieber dropped $5,000 to basically make his mouth look cool for a Halloween costume in 2011.

I hope he had a good Halloween out of it.

12. Miley Cyrus - $24,000 on hair extensions

So not only were they over 20 grand, but she actually had them flown in from Italy.

I wish I could have pizza flown in from Italy.

13. Nicolas Cage - $150 million fortune on prized possessions.

YouTube | FRESH Movie Trailers

Okay, this one is a bit of a wild ride, so get ready for the many, many purchases that Cage makes that will make no sense to you.

For example, he owned 15 residences across the world.

Load Comments

He bought a burial tomb, an octopus, pygmy heads, and a dinosaur skull.

Giphy

Oh, and also a Superman comic book that he paid $150,000 for.

Load Comments

The best part about all of this is that, even though it ruined his finances, he doesn't regret it.

YouTube | whitepaperbag

"You have good investments and bad investments," he said. "The good investments came from personal interest and my honest enjoyment of the history."

Hey, taking care of your back is important, especially as you get older.

We won't be young and flexible forever, people!

15. Jay-Z: $55 million on a racehorse

Instagram | @beyonce

Jay-Z is a huge rapper and loves to double as a businessman.

He confirmed his love of that when he bought the racehorse, California Chrome.

Load Comments

Chrome’s former owner, Steve Coburn, said this about selling the horse to Jay-Z:

Giphy

"I hated to sell the animal, but it is hard to say no to a double nickel in millions. And it is the best thing for horse racing."

Load Comments

"Our racing community has been pushing to get a rapper involved in ownership for a long time."

Which celebrity expense do you think is way too over the top?

Giphy

Personally, I think all of them are.

But hey, if I was crazy rich, I'd probably do something crazy, too.
