If there is one thing we can count on, it is that certain celebrities love to flash their money. Money well earned? That’s debatable, but either way, we know about some of the most insane and expensive purchases they make. Many A-listers have experienced financial burdens growing up and the struggles of making ends meet. They are sometimes not use to being in the position they are now, where massive sums of money hit their bank account and they have more than they ever dreamed of! What does one do with a gargantuan amount of “moolah” now that they are rich and famous? Invest in potentially booming stocks? Give back to the underprivileged and unfortunate? Sometimes. But sometimes that is just not the case.
It is far too tempting to be able to afford the newest luxury vehicle and stay in the most expensive, lavish hotel suites. But when is it ever good enough? Some of these celebs always seem to push the envelope and spend their Hollywood dollars on things that kind of make us snort and roll our eyes, or secretly think: “I wish”. There is no denying that we all love to spoil ourselves every once and a while, so these celebs are no different than us. Perhaps we all don’t agree with who spends how much on what, but it is their money.
From mini mansions for their dogs to grabbing one of the rarest cars in the world, these 10 outrageous celeb purchases prove that sometimes money is no object! Here are The 10 Most Insane Celebrity Purchases Of 2015.
