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...

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!

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

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. Elton John - $425,000 on flowers

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.

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


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

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

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 hookup.

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

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?

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.

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


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

One major reason why was because he was spending upwards of over $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."


Cheers to that, I guess?

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

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

"[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.


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

It pays to be Courteney Cox's friend!

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

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

Talk about riding in style!

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


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!
