Being a celebrity comes with a lot of perks. Besides getting a huge salary and having unimaginable net worths, they can also have the biggest mansions on earth. It looks like celebrities are in competition with one another when it comes to real estate.
They can use their credit cards and swipe them to buy the coolest stuff for their homes. Indeed, money is not a problem for these stars.
Just look at Nicolas Cage. Did you know that he has the most eccentric collection? He reportedly has a dinosaur skull in his home. Why he has a dinosaur skull is anyone’s guess — maybe he just likes having things that people can’t ever expect to have. It’s cool, yeah, but it comes with a considerable price tag. Imagine this skull replacing the deer head on his wall. His visitors will instantly feel they’re in Jurassic Park when they see it.
To some degree, spending a lot of money on strange items is unjustifiable for some, but it is normal for him and other celebrities with weird collections. If you want to know more, take a look at this list that reveals the coolest possessions celebrities have in their mansions.
Lady Gaga | Bowling Alley
Lady Gaga is an extraordinary talent who is widely regarded to be one of the most successful and versatile artists in the music industry today. She rose to international stardom following the release of her debut album, The Fame, which contains the bestselling singles “Just Dance” and “Poker Face”. Her other popular hits include “Telephone”, “Alejandro”, and “Bad Romance”. She has also garnered numerous accolades such as an Academy Award, a Grammy, and a Golden Globe Award, among many others.
Needless to say, her glorious career earned her a massive fortune. With a net worth of over $320 million, she was able to indulge in several luxurious goods and real estate such as her $23 million investment property in Southern California. The lavish abode features many interesting amenities, most notably is the 1960s era two-lane bowling alley. We can only imagine how fun it is to live in her house.
Ron Howard | Observatory
Ron Howard is an acclaimed movie director, actor, and producer who was first known as a child star in successful television shows such as The Twilight Zone and The Andy Griffith Show. However, it was during his stint as a filmmaker that he finally got credit as an important player in Hollywood. He is perhaps best known for his award-winning and critically acclaimed films such as A Beautiful Mind, Cinderella Man, Apollo 13, The Da Vinci Code, and In the Heart of the Sea, among many others.
It comes as no surprise, then, that Ron Howard has also accumulated a massive fortune that is worth $200 million. With such a hefty paycheck earned from various blockbuster films, he was able to afford a comfortable and lavish lifestyle that befits a bigshot celebrity like him. Indeed, his $27.5 million investment property in Connecticut is no ordinary mansion. It is equipped with high-tech and luxurious amenities such as his very own observatory, where he can observe the galaxies from the comfort of his own home.
John Travolta | Jet Runway
John Travolta is one of the most recognizable names in the entertainment industry today. He is widely regarded not only for his rugged and manly physique but also for his exceptional acting abilities. Among his most famous films are Saturday Night Fever, Hairspray, Pulp Fiction, The General’s Daughter, and Swordfish, among many others. He is also, to his credit, a recipient of various awards and recognitions, including an Academy Award nomination and a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor.
His tremendous success brought him to the zenith of Hollywood prominence. Needless to say, John Travolta is no stranger to excess. Like his A-list contemporaries, he enjoys an extravagant lifestyle as can be seen in his opulent mansion in Florida, which has two runways that lead directly to his front door. Moreover, he owns five planes that he flies himself. Truly, his lifestyle is like a movie fairytale.
Leonardo DiCaprio | Well-Being Amenities
Seriously, how many people do you know who haven’t heard of the great Leonardo DiCaprio? He is perhaps the ultimate heartthrob who captivates audiences with his boy-next-door look as much as he impresses them with his remarkable acting skills. He is best known for appearing in a string of blockbuster films such as Inception, Shutter Island, The Revenant, The Aviator, and of course, Titanic, which is considered by many to be the most successful movie ever made, having grossed billions of dollars worldwide.
Outside of the movie industry, however, it can be argued that he is also the king of luxury as well. His lavish investment property in Manhattan is truly special. It has vitamin C-infused showers, purified air and water, a circadian lighting design, heat reflexology flooring, dawn simulation lighting, a juicing station, and ultraviolet lighting that eradicates harmful microbes. Now we understand why he is one of the most good-looking actors around.
Shaquille O’Neal | 30ft Bed
Shaquille O’Neal is not called “Shaq Diesel” for no reason, as he is one of the most dominating basketball players in the NBA during his time in the league. He was so powerful that entire teams dreaded to be matched up against him, and if you get in his way, you will surely regret it. He won numerous NBA championship titles, including the famous three-peat with the Los Angeles Lakers. He’s also been named an all-star and Finals MVP countless times.
One of the reasons why he was such a dominating force on the court is because of his colossal height and body. He is an inch over seven feet and weighs a hefty 325 pounds. It isn’t so shocking, then, that he thought of buying a 30ft bed just so there’ll be enough space for him to lie on. Moreover, he had it custom-made with sheets bearing a Superman logo. He sleeps on the bed whenever he’s in his luxurious investment property in Orlando.
Chris Martin | Banksy Artwork
Chris Martin is one of the most electrifying frontmen in the history of rock music. He is best known for being the lead vocalist of the extremely successful band, Coldplay. Martin and his fellow bandmates achieved international stardom with the release of their iconic single “Yellow” in 2000, for which the band also won their very first Grammy Award nomination. They went on to produce more bestselling hits such as “Fix You”, “The Scientist”, “Viva la Vida”, and “Something Just Like This”, among many others.
Like a Rockstar, it isn’t so surprising to see musicians like Martin be naturally inclined with the arts as well. Indeed, it was reported that Martin recently purchased a rare and extremely valuable work of art created by the elusive and enigmatic artist, Banksy. The piece might later prove to be a wise investment for Martin as artworks are known to appreciate over the years.
Dave Grohl | Studio Soundboard
Dave Grohl is perhaps one of the most iconic musicians in the history of rock. He rose to fame for being the drummer of the legendary rock band Nirvana, and the founder of the equally renowned band Foo Fighters, for whom he is amazingly the lead vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter. His talents were finally recognized in 2014 when he was inducted into the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, along with his former bandmate Kurt Cobain.
It is obvious that Dave Grohl is passionate about music, but what most people don’t know is that his passion isn’t limited to making music or performing; rather, he has also made considerable investments in the music industry. For instance, it was reported that Grohl bought the Neve 8028 mixing desk. It is the soundboard where he recorded the bestselling album Nevermind, along with his other Nirvana bandmates.
David Copperfield | Citizen Kane Statues
David Copperfield is a forerunner in the world of magic. He was even named by Forbes as the most commercially successful magician in history. Indeed, throughout his 40 years in the industry, he has already sold 33 million tickets and grossed over $4 billion worldwide, which is more than any other magician in history. Moreover, he has also garnered numerous accolades and recognitions, including 21 Emmy Awards, 11 Guinness World Records, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
With a flair for the absurd, it comes as no surprise then that his uniqueness also spills over into his investments. Among his most prized possessions is a collection of statues from the estate of Charles Kane, who was the person the famous film Citizen Kane was based on. We would love to see those statues in one of his impressive magic tricks.
Jack White | 1964 JB Hutto Guitar
Jack White is a versatile musician who can sing, write, produce, and play multiple instruments. He is widely regarded for being the lead vocalist and guitarist of the duo The White Stripes. Moreover, he also often gets credit as one of the most influential artists in the garage rock revival of the 2000s. Among their bestselling hits include “White Blood Cells”, “Get Behind Me Satan”, and “Seven Nation Army”, which became the band’s signature song.
As a great guitarist, you might think that Jack White owns a lot of expensive and rare guitars, but the opposite couldn’t be any more true. Indeed, while Jack White owns a lot of guitars, perhaps the most interesting instrument he has is the 1964 JB Hutto guitar that he has been using since 2007. The guitar is reportedly worth $99, which only goes to show that Jack White values substance over style.
Jay Leno | Ford Model T
Jay Leno is a famous comedian, actor, producer, and television host who is best known for being the host of the long-running late-night talk show called The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. During his time as a host, he reportedly earned around $320 million in salary. However, his fortune didn’t only come from television, he has continued to perform as a stand-up comic while he was hosting the show.
With such a massive fortune, we wouldn’t really be surprised to see him indulge a little bit in his hobbies. Indeed, among his many prized possessions is his extremely valuable car collection. The most interesting part of his collection, however, is the Ford Model T, which was the first affordable automobile ever made in the United States. Another investment he has is a 1909 Baker Electric car. Wouldn’t it be nice to ride in those cars?
Johnny Depp | Jake Kerouac’s Typewriter
Johnny Depp is easily one of the biggest stars on the planet. His numerous blockbuster films have already grossed over $3.4 billion in domestic sales and $8.7 billion worldwide. Needless to say, he is one of the highest-paid actors ever who reportedly earns around $100 million per year. He first became known for his credit role as the title character in Tim Burton’s Edward Scissorhands, but it wasn’t until his portrayal of suave Captain Jack Sparrow in the hugely successful Pirates of the Caribbean that he truly gained international recognition.
However, Johnny Depp is also known for his profligate lifestyle. He was even reported to have spent $2 million per month during the peak of his career. One of his many unique possessions is a collection of manuscripts and letters, as well as a worn-out typewriter from the iconic poet and author Jake Kerouac, whom Johnny deeply admired.
Madonna | Frida Kahlo Painting
Madonna is one of the highest-paid musicians and a legend in the music industry who is best known for pushing the limits with her unique and provocative musical style, lyrics, and visuals. Among her most famous hits are “Like a Virgin”, “Crazy for You” and “Material Girl”, among many others. Moreover, she is also an accomplished actress who appeared in major films such as Evita, for which she won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress.
As a headstrong and powerful role model for women, we weren’t surprised that Madonna purchased a Frida Kahlo painting that is worth over $1 million. The painting suits the great singer’s alluring personality as Frida Kahlo is an important icon for women’s empowerment. It might also prove to be a wise investment for Madonna as rare paintings by renowned artists can only appreciate over time.
Nicolas Cage | Comic Book
Nicolas Cage is another iconic actor on the list who has gained a significant following for his unique and over-the-top acting style. His most famous films are The Rock, Gone in Sixty Seconds, The Family Man, the National Treasure film franchise, Ghost Rider, Adaptation, and Leaving Las Vegas, for which he won the coveted Academy Award for Best Actor and a Golden Globe Award for the same role.
Interestingly, he is also an avid comic book collector who once auctioned a collection of over 400 vintage comics worth $1.6 million. In fact, he loves comic books so much that he even created one called Voodoo Child in 2007 along with his son Weston. He is also reported to have a collection that consists of comics from renowned underground comic artist Robert Williams. Contrary to what people might think, comic books are actually a wise and valuable investment as long as owners learn how to take care of it properly.
Quentin Tarantino | Movie Theater
Quentin Tarantino is one of the most respected filmmakers in Hollywood. The writer-director is a unique breed for many reasons. He seems to have his own rules and conventions when it comes to making films that have baffled audiences and critics alike for so many years. Undoubtedly, his unique skill is one of the reasons why he has achieved tremendous success with films grossing over $1.5 billion worldwide. His oeuvre of masterworks includes Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Django Unchained, and Once Upon a Time In Hollywood, among many others.
Due to his undying love for movies, Tarantino purchase an old movie theater and became the defacto film programmer. He bought the investment property because he reportedly wanted to keep the tradition of 35mm film alive. He is a romantic and an old soul when it comes to movies and we can’t blame him since that’s all he ever wanted ever since.
Stephen Colbert | Bilbo Baggins Sword
Stephen Colbert is a successful comedian, writer, and talk show host who is best known for his credit role as the host of The Daily Show sketch called The Colbert Report. However, he also made a name for himself when he began hosting The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in 2015. Moreover, as a writer on The Daily Show, he garnered numerous accolades, which include three Emmys Awards. He is widely regarded for his intelligent remarks and biting wit.
If you’re a true fan of Colbert, however, you’ll know that he’s also a massive nerd. He is known to be a huge fan of J.R.R Tolkien’s masterpiece novel The Lord of the Rings. He is so in love with the novel and the films that Peter Jackson, who is the director behind the Lord of the Rings films, gave him the sword of Bilbo Baggins. The name of the sword is “Sting”, and it has been in Colbert’s possession until now.
Steven Spielberg | Citizen Kane Sled
Steven Allan Spielberg was born on December 18, 1946. As one of the biggest directors in Hollywood, it is not surprising that he has a ton of money in his bank account. He started out directing for TV in the industry. He was also active in the theatre scene before he made it big in the movies. Soon, his credit score became so massive that he bought the actual sled from Citizen Kane, the 1941 film by Orson Welles.
It is named Rosebud and was auctioned off to Spielberg in 1982 for $60,500. There were a total of three sleds used in the filming of the movie but the only one that is still around is the one that Spielberg has and preserved. Apparently, the Rosebud must have been quite precious to him. We all know that only a film genius would spend that much on cinematic memorabilia.
Akon | Diamond Mine
RnB singer and rapper Akon has become very popular in the music industry because he’s been consistently making chart-topping songs that bring in millions of dollars in revenue. Known for his fancy bling and rap music, he thought at some point that it was a good idea to get the sparkly diamonds from the source. So, in 2007, he bought an entire diamond mine.
The mine was located in South Africa and though he did not tell the public how much investment money he put into this lavish purchase, we can all guess that it was a pretty big amount. The exact location of the mine was not revealed either. Akon is surely concerned about his security and privacy in this matter since his purchase is really astounding to the average person. Only a big star like him can afford it!
Mike Tyson | Gold Bathtub
A lot of celebrities have more money in their bank account than they know what to do with. In the case of famous athlete Mike Tyson, he may have earned so much over the years but he has also run into money management issues in the past that made him lose a lot of his assets. One good example was when he purchased a bathtub made of 24-karat gold for $2.3 million back in 2004.
Not only was it an outrageously unnecessary item, but he also bought it during the time he was nearing bankruptcy. It was a gift, though, so maybe it could be a little bit forgivable to the rest of us. He got it for his then-wife, Robin Givens. Unfortunately, the two broke up after some time and we’re guessing she took the golden bathtub with her.
Bono | Plane Ticket for a Hat
Sometimes, we have that one article of clothing that we just can’t go anywhere without. It could be a coat for when it suddenly gets cold or a pair of sunglasses when you just need some shade. In the case of the famous musician Bono, it’s his hat. He made sure that his prized possession does not leave his side so when he had to fly to a vacation spot, he made sure to buy his hat a plane ticket as well.
The ticket cost him $1,700 – first class, no less. Of course, it also got the complete package including comfortable travel and travel insurance. It had a seat dedicated just for it, and Bono made sure that it was always within his sight. Wherever he was going, the hat was probably going to have a great vacation the rest of us can only dream about.
Celine Dion | Humidifier
If our talents and skills make a living for us, then it is perfectly understandable that we give ourselves a little pampering. Legendary singer Celine Dion, for one, has her voice earning her millions of dollars regularly. She needs to keep her vocal cords in tip-top shape all the time because of all her performances and concerts. We all know singers of her standard tend to do whatever it takes to make sure they keep singing beautifully but Dion really made heads turn when she dropped $2 million worth of investment money on a humidifier.
She might have needed the little device to make sure the air around her and the one that she breathes is in optimum condition for her precious voice. Even then, we have absolutely no idea how a humidifier can cost that much — maybe it’s made from diamonds or something.
Chad Johnson | Super Truck
Chad Ochocinco, formerly known as Chad Johnson, is a popular NFL player who was around for 11 years. His last games were with the Cincinnati Bengals and with them, he amassed a total of $46.6 million in income. Other than that, he also earned a ton of money from his endorsement deals. He is hailed as one of the best wide receivers on the field, having gotten six Pro Bowl and three First-team All-Pro selections.
With all these accolades, it does not come as a surprise that Johnson, every now and then, wants to spend some cash on himself. Last 2010, he bought a super truck for $100,000! As far as vehicles go, it’s a very pretty set of wheels but we’re not sure how super this one can be for its price. Surely, Johnson doesn’t have any problems with his credit card so this should not have dented his wallet at all.
Nicolas Cage | Dinosaur Skull
Nicolas Cage is known for being one of the biggest actors in Hollywood. His impressive set of film credits will not disappoint any film buff or expert. He has earned the movie industry hundreds of millions through the years. Likewise, he has earned a large sum for every movie he did. We don’t know exactly when Cage actually ran out of things to buy for himself but we do know that it was in 2007 when he decided that he needs a dinosaur skull.
He is known to be a collector of exotic things but we really don’t know what he plans to do with a Tyrannosaurus bataar skull that is approximately 67 million years old. As far as the purchase of the skull was concerned, he actually won the auction bid over another movie star, Leonardo DiCaprio. Eight years later, though, it was revealed that the skull was an artifact stolen from Mongolia so Cage had to return it.
Beyonce | Diamond Encrusted Doll
If you’re Beyonce, you would definitely have access to anything that you want in the world. Designer clothes, stylish cars, luxury vacations, and even the most bedazzled dolls can be within your reach. Our favorite diva wasn’t contented with diamonds on her jewelry and her outfits. She also made sure that the gift she was giving her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, had diamonds on her too. She bought Blue Ivy a Barbie doll filled with diamonds for her first birthday. She and her husband Jay-Z spent a whopping $85,000 for the toy.
Surely, their kids won’t be needing student loans so they probably thought they should start them young on the diamonds instead. Some people were very surprised to hear of the news. They said that the power couple should have waited until the kid was a little bit older so she could appreciate such a lavish gift. However, the beautiful little girl is probably having the time of her life playing with the most sparkly doll ever.
Jay Z | Race Horse
When there’s Bey, there’s also Jay. Beyonce’s husband Jay-Z is also a lavish spender. Since his net worth is already in the billions, there is no limit as to what he would do with his money. It’s great that he loves to spoil his wife and kids but he also sees to it that he spoils himself with his hard-earned investments. He bought a racehorse a few years back.
We all know that horse racing involves a lot of money but Jay-Z did not just buy any horse. He got a Kentucky Derby-winning kind and spent a ridiculous $55 million to get it. The horse is named California Chrome and it must come with magical powers if it costs that much. The money used to buy it isn’t the only thing Jay-Z had to worry about though. We imagine that maintaining it cost so much more!
Kim Basinger | Town
In fairness to Kim Basinger, she actually had an investment planning strategy in mind when she bought the town of Braselton, Georgia back in 1989. She paid up to $20 million to get the entire thing because she fell in love with it and saw so much potential in it when she passed through and got caught up in traffic. She spent more than a year negotiating and having the papers processed so she could claim all of 1,600 acres of land to herself.
She wanted to turn the place into a tourist attraction complete with production studios that did different films. She also wanted to make it the prime location for hosting film festivals. She had such big dreams for it but things went downhill and didn’t go her way. Only 5 years later, she sold the town for only $1 million and declared bankruptcy.
Beyonce | Gold Leggings
Almost all girls are attracted to sparkly things. Some love them the normal amount but others go head over heels gaga for all things that glitter. Beyoncé is probably one of the second kind of girls. As we have seen in her outfits over the years, she is usually always in shiny suits or bedazzled gowns. Sure, it helps her glow come out even more but she always wears it in style. The 2007 BET Awards were no exception. She looked like a queen in her gold ensemble.
However, she got a lot of mixed reactions when she revealed that the golden Balenciaga leggings that she donned on for that evening’s performance cost a whopping $100,00. We’re not entirely sure why the bottoms were a degree more special than regular-priced ones but they could not have been that great because Beyoncé only wore them once.
Micheal Vick | Fish Pond
Atlanta Falcons star Michael Vick is one of the celebrities who was known to be earning a lot and spending a lot. Some of his purchases in the past were really questioned by a lot of people. In fact, they even questioned his money management skills and habits because he seemed to throw his money away on the most random things. For example, he bought a fish pond for $85,000.
Nobody knows why he needed a personal fish pond but he must have enjoyed it for quite a bit. His life went downhill after a while so he really had to think twice before making more purchases. It’s good that his habits have improved because now, he’s focused on leading a better life. With all his experience as an athlete, there should be a lot more in store for him and his family.
Miley Cyrus | Hair Extensions
Miley Cyrus is the darling of Hollywood not only because of her beautiful music but also because of her eccentric style and personality. She isn’t afraid of what others say about her and she isn’t afraid to rock a new look as well. As she really is adventurous with her makeovers, she is always game for something new. On top of that, money is never in question. That’s why when she had to pay $24,000 for hair extensions, she went through with it.
The extensions were purchased in Italy and they had to be delivered to her. They were said to be state-of-the-art and were perfectly matched to her natural hair color. They must have looked really good and natural on her if it cost that much. We wonder what her financial advisors said when they heard about her trip to the salon.
Mike Tyson | 2 White Bengal Tigers
Mike Tyson has been one of the most popular athletes in the world. The former heavyweight champion got so much fame and fortune from his career. Of course, because of all the wins he had, as well as his numerous endorsement deals, he now sits on a big sum of investment money. He is known to be very generous to himself when it comes to luxuries that only the rich can buy.
For example, he bought not one but two white Bengal tigers. Maybe dogs or cats are just not enough for him as pets, so he needed to get something way more exotic than the mainstream choices. He bought the tigers for $150,000. The living animals, however, needed a place to stay in and Tyson had to shell out an extra amount to create a habitat for them. If that wasn’t enough, he pays their trainer $125,000 a year too.
Tinie Tempah | Nike Air MAG shoes
Tinie Tempah is known for his rap music. The British star may have reached great success in his lifetime but he also has his own set of childhood dreams to fulfill. Apparently, he was really in love with Back to the Future II because he paid $37,500 for the limited edition Nike Air MAGs that was released in 2011. He really wanted to look like his favorite film character so he went for the purchase even though it was very pricey.
According to TMZ, though, the money that was paid by Tempah went to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research so it’s good to know that he wasn’t just throwing his money in the air. Seemingly a win-win situation, the rapper was very happy with his investment and the people of the foundation got their funds.
Tom Cruise | Sonogram Machine
Tom Cruise bought a Sonogram machine in 2005 together with his beautiful pregnant girlfriend, Katie Holmes. The Hollywood star claimed that medical technicians were teaching them to use it but some doctors were against having a pregnancy monitoring machine at home. Some studies said that using the ultrasound apparatus for some time can cause physical effects. After giving birth, the said high-tech instrument was donated to a hospital.
Recently, Tom became viral when he got mad at two staff while filming Mission: Impossible 7. The workers were standing too close next to each other which violated health safety protocols at the time. The production was shut down shortly due to precautions but now, they are more than ready to get to the business that includes Tom’s sophisticated robots. He allegedly bought two innovative machines that can seriously enforce guidelines to keep everyone safe on the set.
Beyonce Knowles | Expensive High Heels
From Beyonce Knowles’s sophisticated and fierce performances, we can’t help but notice how striking her heels are. The American singer and actress is gifted all kinds of amazing shoes. She, who has a good credit score and net worth of over $450 million, bought the most expensive high heels in 2015. She spent over $300,000 for the House of Borgenzie Shellis Contessa Stilettos. It took two months to make the 18k diamond-encrusted pair with 1,310 precious stones.
Beyonce flaunts her and Jay-Z’s $90 million home with her elegant walk-in wardrobe that has her lifetime shoe collection. Her room full of footwear comprises runner shoes, sneakers, high heels, lowered-block heels, and classy sandals. Another cool fact about queen Bey is that she has two real beehives at home for her daughters Blue and Rumi. With an estimate of 80,000 bees, they can make hundreds of honey jars a year.
Nicolas Cage | Haunted Mansion in New Orleans
Nicolas Cage, also known as Nicolas Kim Coppola, is an award-winning actor known for doing extraordinary roles on-screen. It is not a surprise that the 64-year-old actor lives an unconventional lifestyle that included buying Lalaurie House, a famous haunted mansion. He bought the mansion with the intention to write a horror novel, but the novel did not materialize. We can say that it is a unique investment, something only someone as eccentric as Cage will make.
The popular troubled house in New Orleans was originally owned by Dr. Louis LaLaurie and socialite Madame Delphine LaLaurie. The establishment was where Madame Lalaurie brutally tortured her slaves. Nicholas bought the home where monstrous murders happened in 2007 for $3.45 million. He lost it to foreclosure in 2009 and it was purchased by Regions Financial Corporation from an auction. The mansion has been featured on different shows and television thrillers like America‘s Most Haunted Homes.
Amanda Seyfried | Eccentric Hobby
The American actress, Amanda Seyfried, started in the world of show business at the age of 15 as a child model. She appeared in various soap operas like As The World Turns and All My Children. It was in 2004 when Amanda became part of the hit teen comedy film, Mean Girls, which led her to land more remarkable acting projects and roles for movies, including Letters to Juliet and Dear John.
Amanda earned a net worth of $12 million because of her strong dedication and commitment. Because of her hectic schedule, the award-winning actress managed to find a hobby to keep herself grounded. She fell in love with taxidermy, which she claims helps her handle the hustle of the limelight. It might seem odd for some but she claims that, to some degree, she finds art in the practice. Amanda bought herself a taxidermied horse named Antoine while doing Red Riding Hood in 2011. It reportedly cost her several thousand dollars.
Arnold Schwarzenegger | Army Tank
The famous Hollywood film icon Arnold, Schwarzenegger, owns a 1951 M-47 Patton tank which is similar to the huge armed vehicle he drove when he served the Austrian National Army in 1965. The 50-ton behemoth is equipped with a V-12 Chrysler twin-turbo gas engine, has 810 horsepowers, and a maximum speed of 30 miles per hour. He got the combat wheels for free but spent $20,000 to ship the huge machine to the US.
The former politician purchased the tank when it finally retired from Army service. The huge machine was in Motts Military Museum Ohio for several years when Arnold asked for it to be sold in 2008. He sometimes uses the war vehicle to give free rides to children, rewarding them for staying in school. We must give credit to this retired bodybuilder for valuing education so much.
Brad Pitt | War Relic
Brad Pitt has been in the show business for decades, and since he’s one of the most sought-after actors in Hollywood, he has all the money to spend for himself. His estimated net worth is about $300 million. Like any other rich person, he also has expensive hobbies, and one of them is collecting expensive motorbikes. The most expensive ride that he purchased on record was a World War II Nazi motorbike. The battle relic is resting in Brad’s humungous garage alongside his other investments.
Brad treated himself to a three-wheeled German bike that was said to have been used in Greece by Nazis for mountain travels, desert crossings, and reconnaissance missions. He reportedly dropped $385,000 for the rare antique, of which only 500 units were produced. The 57-year-old film producer’s passion for collecting rare motorcycles grew stronger after he did Inglorious Basterds and Fury, both war movies released in 2014.
Nicolas Cage | Shah of Iran’s Lamborghini
The Hollywood icon Nicolas Cage paid almost half-a-million dollars for a 1971 Red Lamborghini Miura SVJ. It was originally owned by the late Shah of Iran, one of the world’s most high-profile car collectors. The rare vehicle was being auctioned in Switzerland in 1997. It’s been reported that Nicolas bid $450,000 over the phone from the United States. The vehicle was said to be one of the most expensive cars sold at an auction in Europe. The actor must have seen it as a great investment.
The vehicle was one of the 3,000 luxury units owned by Muhammad Reza Pahlavi. An auctioneer and managing director of Brooks Limited once said that a car’s value increases at an auction if it was once owned by a high-profile individual. This is said to be true in the world of business. This must be the reason why Nicolas thinks that collecting models of rare automobiles is like preserving national treasures.
Conor Mcgregor | White Polar Bear Coat
Conor Anthony Mcgregor is a famous mixed martial arts fighter and UFC champion who has an estimated net worth of $120 million. He held the UFC lightweight and featherweight champion title for some time. With all the recognition, money, and success, it’s no surprise he’s spent a lot of money on fancy things, including huge investments, mansions, and luxury cars. The Irishman is not shy about flaunting his lavish lifestyle.
In 2017, Conor attended a press conference with his then-opponent Floyd Mayweather showing off a Gucci Mink Coat. His goal was to intimidate his rival with an over-the-top $135,000 stylish coat. While Conor was happy with his outfit, people went crazy and expressed their outrage at the long elegant jacket that was said to be made of polar bear fur. Many animal advocates expressed anger at the famous clothing line. The luxury brand, Gucci, issued a statement saying they no longer make the kind of garments that McGregor was seen in.
Bill Gates | Leonardo da Vinci’s Journal

Indeed, that is exactly the case with big-shot tech billionaire Larry Ellison. Back in 2012, Silicon Valley’s very own Ellison made notable investments in purchasing a $500 million island off Dole Food’s David Murdock’s hands. Lawrence Joseph Ellison is widely known for being the co-founder, chief tech officer, and executive chairman of Oracle Corporation, a multinational computer technology corporation.
With a reported annual salary of $67,261,251, it’s no wonder Ellison can casually buy an island, and then proceed into buying a $200 million yacht afterward. Aside from acquiring 98% of the Hawaiian island of Lanai, the tech CEO also has numerous properties in Rancho Mirage, Lake Tahoe, and Malibu, among many other properties.

Clocking in at a rumored cost of $8 million, the shark was actually commissioned by Charles Saatchi who then sold it to Cohen which is where the shark lives right now. Cohen’s net worth of $14.6 billion would explain how the shark got into his long list of ever-growing assets, and to Cohen, this piece of art is simply one of many investments under his name.

Jayceon was able to afford such a gift without a hitch considering he has a net worth of a whopping $25 million making the hundred-thousand-gift seem like an everyday expense. Since celebrities are an easy prey on the internet, Jayceon expected the haters to start saying that there are other things worth spending on for the child such as tuition and insurance, to which the rapper responded by saying both the tuition and trust funds have already been paid up.

One example of his most expensive commission yet is the piece called “The Hat”, which is a Montecristi Panama priced at a whopping $100,000. The Hat was a commission from Simon Espinal who’s known to be the best weaver in history and the masterpiece took five whole months to be completed, which only goes to show how high the quality of this hat is.

One such item that suits this description is none other than his Bugatti Veyron, which he gave a golden makeover. Although the body is just plated gold, reports speculate that the vehicle’s tires are a different story, with each one being made of 24-karat gold.
Floyd Mayweather | Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita
Many people know that boxing matches never failed to accumulate millions of viewers, and a portion of this achievement is thanks to its many talented fighters. One such figure that gained widespread recognition from the sport is, of course, Floyd Mayweather. By the time he bade farewell to the boxing ring, Floyd has taken credit for playing in 50 fights, winning all of them, 27 of which were by knockout.
Along with his endorsement deals and business ventures, Floyd has since accumulated quite a fortune, not to mention an impressive net worth of $450 million. With access to this much wealth, the world-famous boxer spent a significant portion of it on numerous luxurious items over the years, one of which is the supercar Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita, worth $4.7 million. To add to this beast’s already-exotic aesthetic, only two units of this model have ever been manufactured, making it the ultimate collector’s item for car enthusiasts.
Gianna Jun | Bentley Continental Flying Spur
In more recent years, many foreign films and TV shows have garnered a skyrocketing degree of popularity. One such genre is, of course, K-Drama, short for Korean Drama. Like the Hollywood spotlight, K-Drama has introduced us to several talented figures, one of which is Gianna Jun. After debuting in the 1999 film White Valentine, Gianna has since starred in notable projects such as My Sassy Girl, The Thieves, My Love from the Star, and Legend of the Blue Sea.
At this point, it comes as no surprise that a Bentley is a celebrity-magnet of a vehicle, and one such star that was attracted to its beauty is Gianna. Like other exotic cars in the market, Gianna’s Continental Flying Spur is faster than it looks, going from zero to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds. To top it all off, it also offers the actress a guaranteed-comfy ride thanks to its all-around cozy interior.
Jay Leno | Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren
TV networks often spend a hefty portion of investment money creating programs that can entertain their viewers. Some of these projects can be narrative-driven series, a reality show, or even a talk show. With that said, one such figure that has gained widespread recognition for his stint as The Tonight Show’s host is Jay Leno. After his final episode on the show back in 2014, Jay has since continued his career showcasing his impressive car collection on Jay Leno’s Garage.
Through the years, Jay spent a portion of his fortune on his ever-growing vehicle collection, which is reportedly comprised of 169 cars and 117 motorbikes. Among his prized possessions is a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, which he bought for an estimated $497,750. Other beasts that keep his Mercedes-Benz company include a 2017 Ford GT, a 2014 McLaren P1, a 1939 Lagonda V12, and a 1994 McLaren F1, worth an astounding $12 million.
Jay-Z | Maybach Exelero
With his passion for music discovered at a young age, Jay-Z would often write lyrics and do freestyle rapping during his free time. Well, thanks to retrospect, it’s safe to say this hobby has since become a noteworthy investment for the rapper. With that said, besides releasing many of today’s hit records, Jay-Z has also become quite a businessman, owning a 40/40 Club sports bar chain and the Aspiro tech company, among many ventures.
With all the fortune he has earned through the years, it comes as no surprise that Jay-Z spent a portion of it on cars – a hobby he shares with his wife, the singer Beyoncé. One of the most notable vehicles in the rapper’s collection would arguably be his Maybach Exelero, worth an impressive $8 million. Besides its undoubtedly top-class performance, Jay-Z’s very own Maybach dons an all-black look, almost making it look like a Batmobile!
Jerry Seinfeld | Porsche 959
While studying for his degree in communications and theater, Jerry Seinfeld would also perform in more than a few of his college’s productions. After some time, this developed his passion for stand-up comedy, and he eventually participated in open-mic gigs. Since then, Jerry has become well-known for his work in the TV show Seinfeld and his subsequent projects like The Bee Movie, The Marriage Ref, and Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.
Besides being a famous comedian, Jerry is also known to be quite a car enthusiast and reportedly owns 150 vehicles, including an impressive gallery of Porsches. One such Porsche that he has claimed ownership of is the 959, which he bought for around $700,000. Despite its hefty price, however, this beast isn’t street-legal in the US just yet, so it’s safe to say that Jerry, in the meantime, has this beauty on display in his garage.
Joe Johnson | Ford F650
At this point, it comes as no surprise that basketball has become one of the world’s most recognized sports. One such player that has found success because of it is Joe Johnson. Playing basketball since his high-school years, Joe has since had an 18-season run in the NBA, having played for the teams Boston Celtics, Phoenix Suns, Atlanta Hawks, Brooklyn Nets, Utah Jazz, and Miami Heat. With that said, he’s also one of only 50 players ever to land 20,000 career points in the NBA.
Although many celebrities prefer to spend their investment money on sleek sports cars, there are still those who wish to buy something bulkier, and Joe is one of them. At some point, the basketball player decided to buy himself a beastly Ford F650, worth around $56,000. After a few customizations, however, the car has since become quite a behemoth of a ride, resulting in its worth increasing to an impressive $200,000.
Justin Combs | Maybach
Thanks to his career in the music industry and his several business ventures, Sean “Diddy” Combs has earned quite a fortune. With his current net worth stacking up to $885 million, it’s safe to say he can cover for his son Justin Combs’ student loans. Despite the offer, though, it’s nice to know that Justin is also working hard for his studies – reports in 2012 say he landed a football scholarship at UCLA.
Like the loving father that he is, Sean is fond of acknowledging his son’s hard work with gifts. One such present is a Maybach car, which he gave for Justin’s 16th birthday. For its price of $360,000, Justin will surely have an all-around comfortable time when he takes this beauty for a spin. Even so, it’s said that Justin is only allowed to drive this vehicle on special occasions, perhaps as a means to keep it safe as much as possible.
Kanye West | Lamborghini Aventador
At a young age, Kanye West already had quite a talent for various types of art – he was five years old when he started writing poems. This hobby eventually helped him find his love for rapping and composing music. Fast forward to more recent years and Kanye now takes credit for being one of the music industry’s best-selling artists, having sold over 140 million singles and 20 million albums around the world.
Along with his several ventures through the years, Kanye has since made quite a fortune for himself. Despite his wealth, though, it doesn’t mean the rapper-songwriter still receives more than a few fancy gifts. One such present is the Lamborghini Aventador he got from Kim Kardashian back in 2013. Although it usually has a price of $400,000, this Lamborghini, in particular, was surprisingly more expensive than other units, with its worth being around $750,000.
Kendall Jenner | Range Rover
Through the years, more than a few reality shows have managed to garner millions of viewers throughout their run on TV. Well, one such program is none other than Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which brought the likes of Kendall Jenner to celebrity stardom. With that said, appearing on the show isn’t the only investment she has made for herself. In fact, Kendall also works as a model and has an established business of her own in the fashion scene.
With all the endeavors she’s worked on, Kendall has now accumulated an impressive net worth of $45 million. Along with her celebrity status, it comes as no surprise that she would also prefer to ride a car of the same caliber. Well, she got exactly that for her 16th birthday – a Range Rover. Initially worth $90,000, this luxurious ride has gone through a few upgrades along the way, so it’s safe to say that its price has since skyrocketed.
Kim Kardashian | Ferrari F430
Like her younger sibling Kendall, Kim Kardashian’s earlier experiences under the spotlight were also for Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Through the years, she has also dabbled in more than a few business ventures, including her very own mobile game, a photo book, and various clothing brands. Outside the glitz and glamour, however, Kim has recently been studying to become a lawyer just like her father, Robert Kardashian.
Like many celebrities, Kim is no stranger to purchasing a few of the world’s luxurious cars. With that said, her garage has had the chance to shelter vehicles such as a Cadillac Escalade, a Rolls-Royce Phantom, and a Bentley Continental GT Convertible. Although they’re all lovely rides, it would be a disservice not to mention the star’s Ferrari F430, a $186,925 beauty that Kim often loves to drive to work and during her free time.
Lil’ Wayne | Black Bugatti Veyron
With his passion for music realized at a young age, Lil’ Wayne wrote his first rap song when he was eight years old. By 12, he already began his career under the tutelage of the rapper Birdman. Since then, Lil’ Wayne has released widely-acclaimed albums such as Tha Carter, I Am Not a Human Being, and Rebirth. Along with the fame he received from his work, the rapper is now also a proud recipient of five Grammy Awards, four Billboard Music Awards, and 11 BET Awards.
Like with his awards, Lil’ Wayne is also more than happy to be an owner of many of the world’s luxurious cars. One such beauty he willingly spent his investment money on is the Bugatti Veyron. Although it’s undoubtedly gorgeous, the rapper prefers not to include his Veyron in music videos, claiming that he bought it for more personal reasons.
Miley Cyrus | Porsche Cayenne GTS
Through the years, Disney has taken credit for helping numerous figures achieve celebrity stardom. Well, one such star is none other than Miley Cyrus. After her stint on Disney’s Hannah Montana, Miley has since released many of the music industry’s hit tracks, such as We Can’t Stop, Wrecking Ball, 7 Things, and Malibu. With that said, she’s also continued her acting career with projects like The Last Song and Black Mirror.
Miley has been known to be a talented singer and actress, but what most may not notice right off the bat is that she’s also a big car enthusiast. In fact, a few of the cars she’s claimed ownership of include a Smart Fortwo, a Maserati Quattroporte, a Range Rover Sport, and of course, a Porsche Cayenne GTS. Besides its undoubtedly impressive features, Miley’s Cayenne is also custom-designed with Bose surround speaker systems, ensuring her a high-quality music-listening experience throughout her rides.
Nick Mason | Ferrari 250 GTO
The music industry is undoubtedly never short of talented figures, but one can agree that it’s quite challenging to match the degree of recognition and regard the band Pink Floyd has. To this day, Pink Floyd has since become quite an influential group in the business, and it’s not without the help of its members Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, Richard Wright, and, of course, Nick Mason.
Although Nick is well-known in the music scene as a co-writer and drummer for Pink Floyd, he’s also just as famous in the car collecting business. In fact, it’s safe to say that the musician arguably has one of the most expensive vehicles today, and it’s a classic sports car! Bought for an astounding price of $25 million, Nick now has a gorgeous Ferrari 250 GTO kept safe and secured in his garage, making him one of the 39 enthusiasts ever to claim ownership of one.
Nicolas Cage | Ferrari Enzo
Although his uncle is the iconic filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola, Nicolas Kim Coppola decided to carry the stage name “Nicolas Cage” to achieve fame under his terms. After landing a few acting credits for minor parts, Nicolas eventually received the opportunity to take on more prominent roles. Today, the actor is most known for his performance in titles such as The Rock, Face/Off, Con Air, Ghost Rider, Lord of War, and the National Treasure films.
Besides gaining recognition for his distinct acting chops, Nicolas also fancies purchasing rare and fancy items. One such object he once claimed ownership of is the ever-so-beautiful Ferrari Enzo, a beast of a vehicle that’s capable of reaching from zero to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds. Other rides he bought along the way include a Lamborghini Miura P400 SV/J, a Porsche Pre-A Speedster, and a Triumph Spitfire Mark IV.
P. Diddy | Maybach
We know P. Diddy or Sean Combs to be very smart about his money. His excellent money management skills allowed him to be a successful rapper, record producer, and entrepreneur. In fact, Bad Boy Entertainment, home to artists like French Montana, Faith Evans, and The Lox, is owned and managed by Sean Combs. Prior to founding his own record label, he was a talent director for Uptown Records.
What we love about Combs is that he adores his children so much. While he might be frugal on the business side, he splurges when it comes to his children. What do you think is one thing in the house special for both him and Justin apart from his expensive collection of artwork? That is Justin’s brand new Maybach. P. Diddy gave this to him as a gift on his 16th birthday, and he could only take it out on special occasions, considering its massive $400,000 price tag. Pretty cool, right?
Paris Hilton | Bentley GT Continental
Socialite Paris Hilton is the great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton, the founder of Hilton Hotels. This makes her a hotel heiress, as well as a successful media personality. Popular in the 2000s and given credit for reviving the term “famous for being famous,” Hilton made every effort to turn that reputation around. She wrote a book, Confessions of an Heiress, appeared in movies, and produced a number of singles, all in the effort to make her own mark.
We can say she succeeded, as now there is a great deal of respect for the model. She has also picked up on quite an odd hobby for a woman, collecting and restoring vintage radios. What is an even more interesting find in her garage? A fancy ride, of course. Paris is the proud owner of a Bentley GT Continental, which West Coast Customers have customized for her. The red car costs a whopping $285,000, a fitting amount for someone who could afford the best luxuries in life.
Rick Ross | Maybach 57 Coupe
If you have so much potential as a rapper, expect record labels to fight each other just to get your contract. That is precisely what happened. A bidding war between Irv Gotti’ and P. Diddy’s record label companies ensued for the single “Huslin” release. In a twist of events, Jay-Z’s Def Jam Recording got the contract after Ross had the terms reviewed by his attorneys. With this debut single, the hottest MC in the Game based on MTV’s ranking was born and graced the airwaves.
With album sales coming in the thousands, Ross could afford a host of things, including a sneaker collection that has piqued many enthusiasts’ interest. Apart from finding sneakers in the house, we could also take a peek at his expensive vehicle collection. One such car is his Maybach 57 Coupe. The vehicle is one of the most costly cars manufactured by Mercedes-Benz so far, and Ross is happy to drive it around.
Simon Cowell | Bugatti Veyron
Did you know that Simon Cowell has had moderate success as a record producer and talent scout for the UK music industry in the 1980s and the 19990s before he shot to international fame in the 2000s? We can say that the American Idol judge already has a knack for spotting talent and has brought that keen eye and ear for music when he went on to become a celebrated and sometimes hated talent show judge in three continents.
Over the years, Cowell has collected so many things, so we can definitely expect some interesting items in his portfolio. For sure, he has the latest home security system considering he has a soft spot for classical and expensive art masterpieces. His garage also houses a $1.7 million Bugatti Veyron. It is his favorite because he finds its performance and design unmatched. The TV mogul owns one of the most expensive versions customized to suit his flamboyant style.
Steven Tyler | Hennessey Venom GT Spyder
The rock music scene would not be the same without Steven Tyler. The musician is best known for being the lead singer of the rock band Aerosmith. Apart from singing, though, he also knows how to play the piano, the harmonica, and percussion. His screams are quite iconic as he is known for his trademark “high screams,” wide vocal range, and on-stage acrobatics. Think of him as a male and rock version of Lady Gaga.
Tyler has embarked on solo gigs as well, where he appeared on guest appearances in other artists’ works like Pink, Alice Cooper, and Keith Anderson. He was even a judge on American Idol. Also, the occasional cameos in movies are common. We’re curious, though, as to what things he has collected over the years. Well, one of them is his modest car collections, which include the Hennessey Venom GT Spyder. When you step on the gas, it could reach a maximum speed of 265 miles per hour–handy when a paparazzi is chasing him.
The Game | Bugatti Veyron
The world of rap is fascinating because you can pretty much create your own space and be the king of that particular niche. The Game, otherwise known as Jayceon Terell Taylor, is among the many who helped define the new generation of West Coast hip-hop. His fellow rapper JT the Bigga Figga was instrumental in discovering his talents and bringing him over to the industry. When he released his debut album, Untold Story, Dr. Dre took over and signed him onto his Aftermath label.
Taylor has been a frequent visitor to the lawyers’ office due to a slew of legal troubles he had in the past. However, it did not stop him from successfully collecting some of the best cars money could afford. Among those sitting in his garage is a Bugatti Veyron, which he proudly snapped a photo of and posted on Instagram the moment he bought it.
Angelina Jolie | Lorraine Schwartz Earrings
Largely known nowadays for her humanitarian efforts, Angeline Jolie is also an actress and a filmmaker. She has received multiple accolades, such as an Oscars and three Golden Globes Awards. The actress gained fame when she starred in George Wallace, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and Mr. and Mrs. Smith. For her humanitarian efforts, Jolie has received the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award and became an honorary Dame Commander of the Order of St Michael and St George.
When coming to her house, ask about her knife collection. It is an unusual collection for a woman, but the actress says she has been collecting different knives since she was a child. Another interesting item in her collection is a pair of Lorraine Schwartz earrings, which set her investments back by $2.5 million. She wore this during the 2009 Oscars, and the 115-carat drew attention to itself as much as the actress did.
Anna Kournikova | Argle Diamon Ring
Professional tennis player and TV personality Anna Kournikova has not yet won a singles title. However, she ranked number 8 overall in 2000 while being number in doubles, with Martina Hingis. She has also reached relative fame on TV. Anna retired from tennis in 2003 due to a herniated disc, most likely covered by her health insurance company.
Kournikova and Enrique Iglesias had been dating since 2001 and married in 2007. Guess what he gifted her that is now part of her personal jewelry collection? A pink Argyle diamond ring. This ring weighs 11 carats and comes from the Argyle Diamond Mine in Australia’s East Kimberley region. Its unique color is lovely and the trillion-cut diamonds are something indeed unique. With a price tag of $2.5 to $6 million, it is indeed a worthy gift. Anna is one lucky girl indeed.
Beyoncé & Blue Ivy | Lorraine Schwartz Jewels
The mother-daughter tandem of Beyoncé and Blue Ivy is a sight to behold. Both of them are successful in their respective careers, with Beyoncé being cited as a good influence among fellow celebrities. On the other hand, Blue Ivy has received the honor of a BET Her award, making her the youngest singer to get it in history. Her fame is also starting to bloom if the frequent impersonations on Saturday Night Live and other media serve as an indication.
These two lovelies are proud owners of various Lorraine Schwartz jewels– pink diamond earrings and an $11 million engagement ring for the mom and a $1.5 million diamond tiara for Blue Ivy. No one would have been happier than Beyoncé when Jay-Z gifted her with the jewels. More than the wealth, though, it is their strong relationship and their family ties that’s admirable. We have to give Beyoncé, Blue Ivy, and Jay-Z credit for setting the bar high in Hollywood.
Big Boi | Gem-studded Nike Shoes
What is the benefit of being an Outkast? In Big Boi’s case, it’s becoming one of the most admired American rappers and actors. As the other half of the duo band Outkast, he had released six studio albums so far. When Big Boi tried going solo, his debut album, Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty, was well-received by critics. Encouraged, he put out two more albums.
If you are a rapper with so much money, you would most likely splurge on something; an act financial advisors usually disagree with. Big Boi’s guilty pleasure is a Nike Air Force 1 Supreme Max kicks that he lined up with diamonds. The pair now costs $50,000, and the price could even go up in the future. While Big Boi was the first to be seen with these gem-studded shoes, he would unlikely be the last. So who would be next in line?
Birdman | Grill
American hip-hop rapper Birdman has come a long way in the music industry. Birdman is the co-founder and face of Cash Money Records, the record label behind some well-known singers like Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne. The rapper has also released four albums in total, with his first getting released in 2002. He also ventured into the oil and clothing industries, using his knack for business and his fame as leverage.
Being a wealthy rapper and entrepreneur with investments in various profitable fields, Birdman could afford to spend money lavishly. He spared none in making sure he has the best and most expensive smile. Birdman sports the most lavish dental work known to man as an expensive $500,000-worth diamond-platinum grill got fitted onto his set of teeth. With his bank account, Birdman could easily splurge on more extravagant accessories in the future.
Brad Pitt | Watch
We have Thelma and Louise to thank for bringing Brad Pitt to fame. After he appeared in this movie, he started getting big-budget films such as Legends of the Fall and Interview with the Vampire. However, it was not until the 2000s that the actor rose to unimaginable stardom after starring in Troy, Ocean’s Eleven, and Mr. and Mrs. Smith, all of which were commercial successes. Pitt is one of the most talked-about celebrities, along with his former wife, Angelina Jolie.
The multi-awarded actor-producer certainly has earned the right to spend lavishly on a couple of items without his financial advisor batting an eye. One of those is on watches. Pitt boasts of a modest collection of watches, which includes an $85,000 Patek Philippe Nautilus watch. It might not be that flashy, but he loves its vintage design and feel. He also has other watches, such as a Patek Philippe Ellipse and a stainless steel Rolex Explorer, which shows his deep appreciation for watches.
Charlie Sheen | Watch
Charlie Sheen is a well-loved actor who has appeared on Young Guns, Navy SEALS, and Terminal Velocity. However, his performance in the comedy TV series Two and a Half Men earned him international recognition. Apart from acting, he also launched a clothing line for children. He also holds the Guinness World Record for the fastest to reach one million followers on Twitter and is the highest-paid TV actor per episode.
As such, money does not seem to be a problem for Charlie, be it on Two and a Half Men and in real life. In the TV series, he plays his namesake, known to be rich, and does not think twice about spending on life’s pleasures. One of his guilty pleasures is collecting watches. He owns a Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar, valued at $700,000. Oh, and he lost a Patek Philippe before, so he has got to exercise a great degree of care for this one.
Eric Clapton | Guitar
If you were Eric Clapton, you would also be proud of what you have accomplished. The singer/guitarist has been the recipient of many awards and was inducted three times at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He was once a member of the band Yardbirds and Cream, but he went solo when changes happened in the band that he disagreed with. Breaking away was a good move as he became quite successful and received 18 Grammy Awards for his many songs.
Clapton is a guitarist, so it is only safe to assume he has one of the best collections of guitars in the world. One of his many investments was a Goldleaf Stratocaster. He once owned this $455,000-worth guitar be he sold it at an auction after using it in his 1997 and 2001 tours. The singer is also an avid collector of watches, and he proudly owns a Platinum Patek Philippe 2499 Watch, worth $3.6 million.
Gabrielle Union | Ring
Before making it big on Bring It On in 2000, Gabrielle Union first appeared on sitcoms in the 1990s. She also took on supporting roles in movies like 10 Things I Hate About You and She’s All That. What made her quite famous, though, was with the romantic comedy movies Daddy’s Little Girls, Deliver Us from Eva and Think Like a Man. On top of being an actress, Union is also an author and a very vocal advocate for women’s rights.
Her activism is perhaps one character that made NBA player Dwayne Wade fall in love with her. Wade eventually popped the question and gave her a very expensive 8.5 carats, cushion-cut diamond ring. She said yes, of course, but before they tied the knot, they had their lawyers draft a prenuptial agreement. The two said their vows on August 30, 2014, in Florida.
Jay-Z | Hublot’s Big Bang Watch
Married life sure has its perks, especially if you have the one and only Queen Beyonce as your wife. Renowned hip-hop musician Jay-Z is truly a lucky man! For the American rapper, whose success has reached the same level as his wife’s and a career that made him one of the most influential artists in hip-hop history, maintaining a luxurious life must be a piece of cake.
Thus, on his 43rd birthday, he received his very own Hublot’s Big Bang watch, which was estimated to be around $5 Million. The gift was a personalized investment from his stunning wife, Beyonce, who had its components specifically curated and worked on by a team of 17. It is a masterpiece consisting of 1,282 diamonds that took more than a year to make, weighing over 100 carats, an 18-karat white gold dial, and 6 square emerald-cut stones.
Kanye West | Bape G-Shock Watch
Everyone knows who he is, and he’s keeping it that way—this person is no other than Kanye West. The American rapper and record producer was born on June 8, 1977, as Kanye Omari West, but he’s simply known as Kanye West in the music industry. Being one of the most influential artists in the 21st century of hip hop and pop music, West is simply different when it comes to his songs and style.
The Runaway singer has a distinct sense of style, which goes well with his rapper personality since it’s all about flexing his success throughout his whole career. One notable piece of fashion West has is a $450,000 customized Bape G-Shock Watch worn by the artist in his G-Shock: Shock the World Tour concerts. Not only is the talented rapper amazing when it comes to his flow, but you got to admit he’s got an excellent sense of style as well.
Leonardo Dicaprio | Ruby Slippers
Actor and environmentalist Leonardo Dicaprio is full of surprises. He may seem like your average heartthrob, but the man has several unique items in his collection, one of which is a particular Ruby Slipper from The Wizard of Oz. What makes these pairs of slippers rare is that these were the exact pairs Judy Garland wore in the 1939 classic film The Wizard of Oz. The ruby slippers have a huge degree of value that people consider the “holy grail of all Hollywood memorabilia,” which is why Dicaprio had to get his hands on it.
The actor bought a pair in 2012 to be used as a display in the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, where it’s currently displayed. Such a memorable piece of the Hollywood past could’ve had no better owner than Leonardo DiCaprio himself. Doesn’t it just make you curious about the other items he has in his possession?
Lil Jon | Jason of Beverly Hills Necklace
American rapper Lil Jon has a unique sense of style when it comes to the finer things in life, so it’s not surprising that he ended up on this list. The artist behind the genius success of hit pop classics such a Get Low, Turn Down for What, and Snap Yo Fingers has everything from platinum and gold grills, expensive rings, and gold watches but all of that won’t compare to what he has around his neck.
Spelling out “Crunk Ain’t Dead,” Lil Jon walks around with 5.11 pounds of 3,756 diamonds set in 18-karat white and yellow gold, which shows the degree of wealth the rapper has. With a net worth of whopping $30 million, it’s no wonder that the hit American rapper and record producer has enough to finance his daily dose of bling. We bet he even has more flashy jewelry in his collection.
Melania Trump | Jeffrey Rackover Ring
Only a few people in the world can use the word “only” before $1.5 million, and Melania Trump did just that when posing for a shot with her 25 karat Jeffrey Rackover ring on her finger. The Slovene-American model and businesswoman has evidently made good investments in life to come out as one of the world’s richest women alive. Melania Trump was the first lady of the United States from 2017 to 2021 during her husband’s term.
Being glamorous comes naturally for Melania, considering that she has been modeling since the age of 16. Melania’s known for her very exquisite taste in fashion and not being a stranger in many online lists of “world’s richest.” From a $2.5 million custom Dior dress to the $1.5 million Jeffrey Rackover ring she’s wearing, Melania’s a lady who knows her worth.
Pharrell Williams | Jacob the Jeweler Necklace
Before the Happy singer Pharrell Williams started dressing up in a more down-to-earth fashion, Williams was a walking drip god with the finest ice on the market. Pharrell Lanscilo Williams is an American rapper, songwriter, and record producer who gave the world something to jam to with Happy, Blurred Lines, and Frontin’, only to name a few of his notable investments in the music industry.
Boasting a whopping net worth of $200 million, it’s no question that Williams can spend $1.5 million on the fly for a unique piece of jewelry. Made by the famous Jacob the Jeweler, also known as “The King of Bling,” Williams got a handmade piece of art from a wide range of choices of different colored gems to complete the necklace he wanted to roll with. The $1.5 million necklace is one of many chains Williams has in his wardrobe, and it’s arguably one of the most expensive necklaces in the industry.
Rick Ross | $1.5 Million Chain Necklace
When we talk about creativity, style, personality, and swag – American rapper and record producer Rick Ross most definitely has it all! This man has been recognized for his oozing confidence and exceptional skills, all while dressing up in the coolest and loudest outfits!
To really prove how cool a man he is, let us acknowledge that Rick Ross is notorious for having a serious game with bling and chains, spending on these items to a great degree. Among his collection, one thing that really caught our attention was a chain with a miniature version of himself! Not only is this necklace shaped like a little Rick Ross, but it is also a chain of himself wearing a chain of himself as well! Mind-blowing right? I think so! This chain necklace alone is estimated to be $1.5 Million, and out of everything he wore and showed to the public, this one is most certainly our favorite!
Seal | Richard Mille Gold Watch
Seal is a British singer-songwriter who has made quite a fortune after selling over 20 million records worldwide. Being one of the most prominent faces in the entertainment industry, specifically in music, must be a handful. However, with the amount of success he was able to reach, it is most definitely a blessing in many ways. After being a recipient of several prestigious awards with his craft and releasing several albums throughout his career, we’re almost sure he won’t be needing any more money loans!
In fact, he has amassed quite an amount to afford himself a Richard Mille Gold watch. The brand itself has average wrist watches amounting to $80,000, but this watch alone was known to be approximately worth a whopping $475,000. The timepiece has gotten featured in several photoshoots and got recognized for its elegance and style. Without a doubt, Seal has good taste for the finer things in life.
When you were young, you’d be the talk of the classroom if you roll out with the 64 Crayola Crayons in your hands, but Sean Kingston got a different idea in his mind— a way expensive one too. American-Jamaican superstar Sean Kingston, better known as the genius who gave the world hit songs like Beautiful Girls, Fire Burning, and Eenie Meenie, has a different degree of thinking regarding bling.
Kingston sports a comically huge Crayola Necklace around his neck, but this piece of jewelry is no laughing matter at all. The necklace was made from a number of colored gems from diamonds, rubies, and emeralds to form a crayon box, and it’s priced at an estimate $500,000. However, the enchanting Iced Crayola Box story doesn’t have a happy ending since it went missing when they sent it to a jeweler. Although gone, the legacy of the Crayola necklace is far from forgotten.
There seems to be a trend in musicians having a unique taste in necklace selection since the next celebrity also has a fascination when it comes to the bling around the neck. Most notably known as Souja Boy, DeAndre Cortez Way is a hit rapper and record producer who made big waves in the music industry in 2007, topping Billboard Hot 100s daily.
With the massive fame that came his way, so did the cash flow and the desire for more extraordinary things. Among many other riches in this megastar’s wardrobe, Soulja Boy has a $500,000 Globe necklace with an inscription of “The World Is Yours” boldly encrypted in gems. The $500k necklace is by far one of the cheaper investments the rapper made throughout his career since several sources said that the rapper spent millions on other accessories.
Yet, the trend continues when it comes to musicians getting the best set of pieces of jewelry money can afford. Only this time, it’s a highly stylish and unique customized watch. It’s not every day you get to have a watch with your own face on it. However, for American singer-songwriter Usher Raymond IV, having his face put on a $250,000 Tiret Watch was no big deal.
Usher has made famous investments in the pursuit of fashion, but none has come close to how daring his watch game is. Sporting his face made entirely of diamonds, Usher’s watch is one of 2 famous watches with their owner’s face in it, only being rivaled by Kanye West’s $180,000 Kanye-face watch. Usher came into fame with hit songs from Yeah!, My Boo, to DJ, Got Us Fallin’ In Love, made the world dance to his beat. He boasts a staggering $180 million for a net worth making a $250k watch seem like a weekly expense with his massive success.
Victoria Beckham | Bulgari Ruby Necklace
The woman who rocked the world as Posh Spice in the hit girl group known as the Spice Girls is still as fabulous as ever, sporting various expensive jewelry and rolling in the most expensive wheels money can afford. Victoria Beckham is an English singer and fashion designer who blew the world with her incredible talent as a Spice Girls member. Victoria is one famous lady. Therefore a woman of her caliber and degree should be matched by an equally daring, dashing, and amazing man, like David Beckham.
David Beckham, English former professional football megastar, absolutely adores his wife, Victoria. It’s clear just how much David spoils his lovely wife. In fact, David notably gave the lovely lady a $1,200,000 Bulgari Ruby necklace for heart’s day! Now the price is impressive, but David remembering Bulgari is Victoria’s favorite brand, is a different kind of sweet.
Roman Abramovich | Eclipse
Besides being a politician and a businessman, the name Roman Abramovich is most famous among yacht enthusiasts. As of 2021, the Russian billionaire has gained a net worth of $18.7 Billion, and his personal assets ultimately testify just how wealthy he really is. Abramovich is known to be the owner of the world’s most expensive superyacht, Eclipse. Its initial cost was around $590 Million, but the boat has reached the billion-dollar mark today.
For some time, the Eclipse was considered the biggest private boat to exist, with a length of 162 meters. However, years later, investments in even more massive ships were designed. Despite that, this vessel still tops and proves to be worth its price with its world-class amenities like the accommodation of up to 36 guests, 96 cabin crew members, motion sensors, bulletproof glass walls, a separate deck for the master’s suite, anti-ballistic missile defense, and rumored anti-paparazzi lasers.
Bill Gates | Xanadu 2.0
It’s no surprise you’d find one of the world’s richest men on this list, but what’s different with this next person is that the item is the house itself. William Henry Gates III is most notably known for co-founding Microsoft Corporation and giving the world Microsoft. To say he’s rich is a complete understatement since his degree of wealth is on a completely insane level having a net worth of $133 billion as of 2021.
With this immense wealth, it’s no question that he’s got notable assets under his name, such as “Xanadu 2.0,” dubbed as one of the most expensive houses in the entire world. Priced and valued at a whopping $131 million, the compound in Medina, WA, has beautiful access to Lake Washington and is absolutely filled with state-of-the-art technology from lighting to temperature control. To sum up how amazing and expensive this house is, the dining hall alone can accommodate 150 people.
Oprah | The Promised Land
With the achievements she has gained over her years of service in the entertainment industry, it’s no wonder that Oprah is spoiling herself with marvelous purchases. For famous television personalities like Oprah Winfrey, one house shouldn’t be enough. Among the celebrity’s several residential properties, one of the most recognizable homes, and our personal favorite is her mansion in Mendocino, California.
The property is where she spends most of her time too. This massive estate is valued at approximately $90 Million and is more commonly known as “The Promised Lan.”. This vast land area houses an equestrian compound with riding rings, stables, a barn, polished gardens, a koi pond, several outdoor entertainment spaces, a pool with its own pool house, and of course, six bedrooms and 14 bathrooms indoor. For a house this luxurious, she’ll definitely need over-the-top home security systems and facilities!
George Clooney | Pizza Room
George Clooney is an actor, director, and screenwriter who sits in Hollywood’s rich and famous ranks. As one of the most sought-after personalities in the entertainment scene, he has amassed a net worth of $500 million. Of course, given his wealth, the actor has collected an impressive real estate portfolio. In 2001, he stumbled upon the beautiful 18th century Villa Oleandra in Italy. He has since renovated the property, bringing in all the modern features that bring comfort to him and his family. He also purchased the estate next door.
The villa, costing around $100 million, boasts a total of 10 bedrooms and eight bathrooms, a gym, a swimming pool, an outdoor theater, and amazingly, a pizza room! The property also has an updated home security system, so if you are looking for a place to stay, the house is now available for rent.

That’s not all— Lucas made sure to include unique features. Skywalker Ranch, valued at $100 million, also has a vineyard, an observatory, and its own fire station! The employees and guests must be enjoying a lot in a top-notch workplace such as this!
Jay Z & Beyonce | Helipad

The two have a combined net worth of $1.5 billion, making them one of the world’s wealthiest celebrity couples. The couple also owns an extremely valuable real estate portfolio, including a luxury apartment in New York, a waterfront Villa in Miami, and a mansion in Westchester County.

Cristiano Ronaldo | Watch
Portuguese professional soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the highest-paid athletes on the planet. As of writing, Ronaldo has garnered 29 trophies throughout his sports career, including five Champions League wins and a Euro Cup win. His net worth of $500 million comes from his money management skills and salary as a footballer and his various endorsements with companies.
Ronaldo used to be an ambassador for Jacob & Co, but he recently upped his game with the master of the tourbillon Franck Muller. His latest timepiece, worth a whopping $1.5 million, is from the watchmaker’s Round collection. The watch has baguette-cut diamonds and rubies across the dial, bracelet, and case. With Franck Muller’s signature tourbillon, the watch also features an impressive mechanical function. Looking at the price tag, we can definitely say it is fit for the football royalty.
Drake | Watch
Drake catapulted to fame in just a short amount of time, thanks to his superb musical talents. Before making waves as a massive rap superstar, he used to be a child actor in Canada. Since coming into the Hollywood limelight, he has earned over $430 million before lifestyle costs and taxes. Now, his net worth is down to $180 million. We suggest he hires a reputable financial advisor to help upscale his earnings.
Anyway, the music artist is known for his love for bling. The Richard Mille RM 69 watch that he recently wore reportedly costs around $750,000. The rapper isn’t shy of a little bling and likes to use the renowned watchmaker’s line of watches. In fact, Drake also uses another RM 69 model. The first one is designed with plain titanium, while the other is diamond-encrusted pure rose gold.
Floyd Mayweather | Watch
Of course, if the topic is bling, we certainly have to include Floyd Mayweather on the list. He is nicknamed “Money” for many reasons, and this includes his extravagant lifestyle. His total career earnings top $1.1 billion, and as of writing, Mayweather’s net worth is a massive $450 million. In his fight against Manny Pacquiao in 2015, he earned a hefty $250 million. Imagine all his other boxing events!
You might ask, where does his money go? Well, he has real estate investments, a car collection (he owns dozens of high-end cars, by the way), private jets, and a jewelry collection. The 40-year-old boxer indeed enjoys diamonds. One of his prized possessions is the $18 million Jacob & Co watch called The Billionaire. The timepiece is an 18k white gold set made of 260 carats of white diamonds. It makes us think it’s more of jewelry than a watch!
John Mayer | Watch
For someone who is super busy and needs a frequent time check, John Mayer decided to spend his investment money on a fine timepiece. Unlike Floyd Mayweather and Drake, he opted for a much simpler watch, avoiding all kinds of bling and sparkles. The renowned musician’s choice is the Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar Chronograph, worth over a hundred thousand dollars. If you look closer, you’ll see that it is made intricately and oozes with the classic art of watchmaking.
Mayer began his career in the late ’90s. Since then, he has emerged as a highly successful, Grammy-award-winning solo artist with a net worth in the multi-millions. In case you don’t know, he is a massive watch collector. His affinity for expensive watches cost him to spend 25% of his entire net worth. He said that his hobby is learning about the details of various watches.
Leonardo DiCaprio | Tortoise
As for the affluent and A-list celebrity Leonardo DiCaprio, you’d be surprised to find out that he has a pet tortoise in his home. Although it only cost him a cool $400, the actor’s Sulcata tortoise can grow as huge as 200 pounds. The tortoise can also live as long as 100 years, so it’s worth his investment. Sulcata tortoises are also called African spurred tortoises. We can only assume he traveled to the country and developed a fondness for the animal.
An environmentalist himself, DiCaprio purchased a 104-acre private island in Belize worth $1.75 million. He announced that he would be converting the property into an eco-friendly private resort. The resort will feature 36 estate-style homes and 36 bungalows for private owners, according to the updates. All of the facilities will be reportedly 100% powered by renewable energy.
Michael Jackson | Chimpanzee
Of all the animals he can choose as a pet, Michael Jackson opted for a chimpanzee. Well, we can’t blame him. Chimpanzees are easily likable. What’s even more adorable is that he named him Bubbles! Bubbles frequently traveled with his owner, and the King of Pop even tagged him along to his tour to Osaka, Japan, where they both enjoyed sipping a cup of tea with the city mayor.
Technically, the late pop star didn’t spend a dime on his beloved pet as he adopted him from a Texas research facility in 1985. If you want to own one, though, you’ll be shelling out investment money of $65,000! Jackson had a net worth of $500 million. He earned this tremendous amount through record sales, concert tours, endorsements, and merchandise. As of writing, he had sold over 750 million albums.
Nicolas Cage | Octopus
Some of us — or most of us — find this predicament very weird. Well, except actor Nicolas Cage who wanted to own a pet octopus, and no one could stop him from doing so. Octopi are complex sea animals that are potentially poisonous, but the actor seems to enjoy the thrill of owning one. He even paid $150,000 with no second thoughts at all. Interestingly, Cage insistently claims that the octopus helps him with his acting skills, and we are still left confused with his statement.
If that’s what he believes in, then so be it. He still gains a degree of renown in the film industry, anyway. He also spent a fortune on a 67 million-year-old dinosaur skull, 15 personal homes, four luxury yachts, and a $30 million private jet in addition to his impulsive pet purchase.
Drake | Jacket
When it comes to expensive clothing, Drake’s name always pops up. The rapper is not only famous for his musical style but his fashion style as well. One of his expensive statement pieces is a dark brown leather jacket for which he spent a hefty sum of $4000. The jacket’s label is Prada, which is quite reputable for its high-quality clothes. The Italian luxury fashion brand is renowned for designing celebrity apparel, and Drake was spotted wearing this leather jacket.
Besides his music career, Drake also has other endeavors. He formed his own record label called OVO Sound. His company represents music artists like Majid Jordan and Kash Doll. The famed rapper also owns multiple properties, including the Los Angeles Saddle Ranch Bar, which he purchased for $7.7 million in cash. He didn’t need to acquire this estate with a mortgage- that’s how wealthy he is!
Marc Jacobs | Jacket
Even fashion designers love to wear other designer pieces. Marc Jacobs is one of the top American fashion designers of today. Did you know he used to work for Louis Vuitton as a creative director? Yes, he then created his own label, branched out to perfumes and accessories, and opened more than 200 retail stores in 60 countries.
Jacobs is an award-winning designer who is also considered one of Hollywood’s style icons. Wherever he goes, he never fails to make a style statement with the clothes he wears. He was spotted sporting this Saint Laurent bomber jacket. The embellished jacket is worth a staggering $24,900. Its intricate design shows the beautifully adorned sequined embroidery, and it’s no wonder that the designer was quickly fascinated by it. Jacobs now has a $100 million net worth and continues to increase his credit score with his latest ventures.
Justin Theroux | Jacket
Justin Theroux is an actor turned screenwriter and director who made his film debut in I Shot Andy Warhol in 1996. Since then, he has received over 60 film and television credits, making him a prominent figure in the entertainment industry. While portraying the lead role on The Leftovers, he reportedly earned $75,000 per episode, making it easy for him to spend a fortune on his wardrobe.
The media and his fans laud the actor for his handsome and street-smart looks. Theroux has established himself as an uber-stylish heartthrob who’s not afraid to explore fashion. The Six Feet Under star got spotted wearing high-end staples from expensive brands, including this black leather jacket from Mastermind Japan. The biker jacket reportedly cost him $12,000. You might think it’s too much, but actually, the classy wardrobe is worth the penny. With its high quality and versatility, the actor can definitely wear it to any occasion.
Dakota Johnson | Jacket
Hailing from a family of actors, Dakota Johnson sure knows her way around show business and style. She practically grew up in Hollywood and has adapted her mom’s (Melanie Griffith), dad’s (Don Johnson), and grandmom’s (Tippi Hedren) fashion sense. She was spotted wearing Gucci on many occasions, and just recently, the actress flaunted her custom studded jacket worth a hefty $12,000. The 31-year-old actress patronizes the brand to the degree that she buys her boots, accessories, and outerwear from the store. Because of that, she was named the brand ambassador for the luxury fashion brand.
Aside from the Fifty Shades film series, Johnson’s notable films also include Black Mass, Bad Times at the El Royale, and How to Be Single. She is in a relationship with Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin since 2017, and they reportedly reside in Malibu, California.
Kim Kardashian West | Jacket
This list won’t be complete without Kim Kardashian. Born to lawyer Robert Kardashian and Kris Kardashian, she instantly rose to fame because of her parents’ eminence. In fact, she is among today’s most famous socialites. Throughout her career, Kardashian has collected a net worth of $900 million. She earns around $50 to $80 million from her growing empire and various endeavors. For instance, her KKW Beauty Line generates over $100 million each year, and until now, her businesses continue to expand.
Kardashian also rocks the fashion scene and makes sure she is not left behind when it comes to wearing leather jackets. The socialite fancies the Enfants Riches Déprimés studded biker jacket that costs around $11,000. Looking at the jacket, you could only name a few personalities who can pull off such an extravagant piece. Obviously, Kardashian is among them.
Lewis Hamilton | Balmain Embroidered Leather Jacket
Will you spend $7,000 on a jacket? If you are Lewis Hamilton, the famed British racing driver, you will. As a fashion designer himself, he surely has eyes for incredible style, and so this Balmain embroidered leather jacket gets his attention.
For an average Joe, this is a ridiculous way of spending a huge amount of money, but it is just probably another swipe on his credit card for Lewis. Known for its collection of everything luxurious, Balmain has become the go-to high fashion brand of the celebrities—especially their now-dubbed celebrity jackets. This piece that Lewis has is made of an asymmetric front zipper with two zipped pockets and heavily-embroidered on the side of the front and left sleeve. It is incredibly unique, isn’t it? The driving champion has made it his signature look, often wearing a lavish jacket paired with ripped jeans.
Dr. Dre | Moat
Aside from a home security system, Dr. Dre has also installed his very own moat around his lavish L.A. mansion. Amid the modernity of today, this iconic rapper makes his home visually impressive with this addition. In case you don’t know, a moat is a body of water that surrounds a property to make the castle safe from an attack. By the looks of it, Dr. Dre’s house is every inch safe from the intruders. He also had the moat added with koi fish to make it look more luxurious.
According to reports, the 56-year-old star bought his home from the A-list couple Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen for a whopping $40 million in 2014, making it more lavish. The property came with five beds, nine baths, a library of its own, a sauna, seven fireplaces, a motor court, and a gym. It looks like adding moat here makes a huge difference compared to other celebrity homes.
Michael Jordan | Indoor Basketball Court
As a legendary basketball player and icon himself, it is no surprise that Michael Jordan will make an investment in an indoor basketball court. His “His Airness” home can be easily identified as Jordan’s. Why? Aside from the Jumpman logo on the gate, it also has a full-sized indoor court, complete with his iconic symbol in the middle. It is indeed every basketball enthusiast’s dream.
It is quite common for any celebrity to have a basketball court, but it is usually outdoor. As one of the greatest of all time, you can expect nothing less from Jordan. Sadly, he is about to say goodbye to this property after putting it on the market for only $14.85 million—a vast difference from his original listing of $29 million. The new owner will surely get their money’s worth here, as it has a list of luxurious features and amenities, like a tennis court, gym, cinema room, humidor smoking room, and more.
Drake | Luxury Outdoor Pool
Drake is maybe a massive fan of swimming for having the best luxury outdoor pool installed in his home. Mind you, this is not just an ordinary pool. He might have spent a fair amount of his investment money here, having it had its own waterfalls, an 80-foot water slide, statues of women in bikinis, iron torches, and a grotto. It will make you feel that you are in a very luxurious result.
Well, as part of his YOLO estate—yep, that is its name, believe it or not—he really wants to enjoy his life with the company of his friends. As they say, “you only live once,” so make the best out of it. Drake has admitted he is obsessed with pools, so he made sure it had a good one when he was looking for a home. It seems like his neighbors have to get used to his home and pool parties every now and then.
Tom Brady & Gisele Bündchen | Chicken Coop
You may find it weird that Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen have a chicken coop in their home, but you shall wait for their explanation. Their house has a kitchen garden, and they use this coop for their chickens to produce their daily eggs. What an excellent way to live sustainably, right?
This feature is part of their 14,000-square-foot mansion. Their house boasts stunning views, a home gym, and a closet that is already a size of an apartment—everyone’s girl dream indeed. Not to mention, it also has a full gym so that they can keep their physique fit and healthy. After good investment planning, Tom and Gisele finally bought this estate and built it for three years. As part of their cause to live sustainably, their house is also environmental-friendly. Ninety percent of their home is recycled, antique, or reclaimed. That is not all. Seventy-five of the construction’s debris are also recycled.
