10 Of The Most Ridiculously Expensive Celebrity Purchases

Posted by Katie F. on April 2nd, 2013

Celebrities make millions of dollars each year, which is obviously more than they know what to do with. Stars are notorious for spending their extra cash on things they don’t need. It may get them into financial trouble, but it’s sure humorous for us to hear about! Check out 10 of the most ridiculously expensive celebrity purchases.

Beyoncé’s Leggings

Beyoncé paid $100,000 for a pair of gold Balenciaga leggings that she performed in at the 2007 BET Awards. Hopefully she found a way to get some more wear out of them!

$1

   

Lady Gaga’s Ghost Detector

Lady Gaga paid $50,000 for an electromagnetic field meter to detect ghosts near her. She believes in paranormal activity and won’t take any chances when it comes to evil spirits. According to Gaga’s publicist, “it’s important for her to be safe from spirits.”

$2

   

Bono’s Hat’s Plane Ticket

In 2005, Bono paid $1,700 to fly his favorite hat first class from London to Italy. More costs were probably added on for transportation to and from the airport. Hopefully the good feeling Bono got when he put the hat on outweighed the embarrassment he should feel for spending so much on shipping a hat!

$3

   

Nicolas Cage’s Dinosaur Skull

Some of Nicolas Cage’s money problems could probably be traced back to this ridiculous purchase. In 2007, Cage paid $267,000 for a dinosaur skull.

$4

   

Daniel Radcliffe’s Mattress

Daniel Radcliffe spent $17,000 on a custom mattress from Savoir, the 100-year-old luxury mattress maker. That better be a very comfortable mattress!

$5

   

Kim Basinger’s Town

In 1989, Kim Basinger bought the whole town of Braselton, GA for $20 million. She intended to turn the town into a tourist trap and hub for movie studios, but she was forced to sell the town once it became clear this would never happen.

$6

   

Suri Cruise’s Toys

Suri Cruise is one spoiled Hollywood tot! In 2010, Suri was given a $30,000 toy car modeled after an Indianapolis 500 race car and an $850 Salvatore Ferragamo handbag that matched mom Katie Holmes’ larger version.

$7

   

Kanye West’s Teeth

In 2010, Kanye West had a dentist remove his bottom row of teeth and replace them with diamonds because he “just thought that diamonds were cooler” and because it’s just something “that rock stars are supposed to do.” West didn’t reveal how pricy the procedure was, but diamond teeth probably don’t come cheap!

$8

   

Victoria Beckham’s Cell Phone

Victoria Beckham owns a custom iPhone covered in 24-carat gold. The phone takes weeks to create and costs over $35,000.

$9

   

Mike Tyson’s Bathtub

Part of Mike Tyson’s mountain of debt included the $2 million he spent on a bathtub for his first wife, actress Robin Givens.

$10
