We all have some or the other things we cant help splurging on. Find out what these celebrities keep splurging on –
1. Victoria Beckham
Posh Spice really lives the high life as a designer, socialite, and wife of David Beckham. Her indulgences are said to be bags and personal hygiene. She’s rumored to own at least thirty Hermes bags, most of which cost a whopping $5,000—that’s $150,000 on Hermes bags alone, not including other brands she surely owns! Beckham also spends as much as $44,000 on teeth whitening treatments. Guess she’s obsessed with flashing a posh smile!
2. Shaquille O’Neal
Retired NBA superstar Shaq O’Neal’s spending habits came under scrutiny when he and his ex-wife were in the midst of divorce proceedings. He was forced to present a list of his expenses and this is what the divorce courts drew up: his monthly expenses were a little less than $1 million! The list itemized, among others were, $110,000 on vacations, $60,000 on gifts, $46,000 on child care, and mortgages on three houses worth a collective amount of $460,000. It’s a good thing he’s doing other things to earn in his post-basketball career!
How can 55-year-old Madonna look the way she does? Apparently, it’s possible without having to go under the knife. The pop icon regards water as the fountain of youth. She reportedly spends $10,000 a month on specially anointed Kabbalah water not just for her, but for her family as well. Drinking lots of water is one of her fitness secrets and she believes that the blessed water is what keeps her feeling and looking young and energized.
4. Beyonce and Jay-Z
They’re one of the most powerful and wealthiest celebrity couples in the world, so it’s no surprise that Jay-Z and Beyonce’s spending habits are proportional to their net worth. In an awards show in 2007, Beyonce wore a pair of gold-sequined leggings from Balenciaga and it retailed at $100,000. Not to be outdone, Jay-Z loves to celebrate and entertain by serving his guests bottles of Armand de Brignac, a luxury champagne that costs $250 per bottle!
5. Tom Cruise
If you’re worth $250 million, it’s pretty hard not to splurge. Tom Cruise reportedly spends loads to maintain his homes, ensure protection via a band of security personnel for himself and his kids, and to keep a private jet. In 2007, he jetted around so much that his fuel consumption for his private plane skyrocketed to $1 million.
Yes, their total net worth is over $200 million and they give loads of their time and money to charity. But Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s regular expenses are still bordering on crazy. It was reported that they spend close to $10 million a year on their six children. They’re a very busy couple so they’re heavily dependent on nannies, which costs around $900,000 a year to maintain. And since they choose to keep their kids out of the limelight and take them around with them on location shoots, they spend $1 million on private tutors. Other expenses include $5 million for private jets, $96,000 on clothes, $36,000 on groceries, and $7,000 on birthday parties. What privileged kids!
7. Nicholas Cage
The celebrity who tops the list as the most exorbitant spender is none other than Nicolas Cage. Until he ran into financial troubles, he made astounding, completely frivolous purchases until he had the following number of assets under his belt: a private jet, two yachts, 50 sports cars, 15 mansions, three castles, and two islands in the Bahamas. And to top it off? He bought a dinosaur skull at an auction, where he bid for and won the 65-million-year old piece for a whopping $276,000.
