Craziest Purchase Our Favorite Celebrities Ever Splurged On
To have a larger-than-life lifestyle is the dream! Being extremely wealthy must be super fun. However, we obviously would not know what that’s like. After all, unlike our fabulous celebrities who are just living lavishly, we do the nine-to-five grind to earn a decent living out here. Some of them are too wealthy; they probably own some of the most exclusive limitless credit cards.
It is common for us to see our favorite celebrities purchase the most expensive things in the world. However, they sometimes buy things that seem to be way too ridiculous, even for the wealthiest people in the world. Many of these superstars spend their money on some useless items, from a million-dollar humidifier to a way overpriced ancient fossil. It kind of makes you question their sanity. After all, aren’t they supposed to be doing some financial planning to keep track of their fortune? However, who can blame them? If we have more money than we need, we’d probably splurge it on ridiculous purchases too.
Kim Basinger’s Town
American actress/model Kim Basinger is one of the most successful celebrities in the entertainment industry. She is most famous for her roles in various films, including the 1989 classic Batman and the 1997 critically acclaimed movie L.A. Confidential. This Academy Award-winning actress has a jaw-dropping net worth of $20 million. With that being said, she must have a lot of investment money scattered on different business ventures or properties. However, an entire town is probably the most impressive one. It might sound crazy, but it is a pretty sweet investment, though.
Paris Hilton’s Doghouse
Paris Hilton is one of the most lavish television personalities the entertainment industry has ever seen. After all, this socialite was born with a silver spoon in her mouth. She is the great-granddaughter of no other than Conrad Hilton, the person who founded Hilton Hotels. Paris is not just a model and singer. These days, she is also a businesswoman with a billion-dollar business mindset. However, her staggering net worth of $100 million may not be as shocking as the things the splurges on. She owns a $325,000 doghouse. It is built with air-conditioning, heating, a chandelier, and even mini designer furniture. Even its flooring is beautiful! Now, we understand her love for her canine friends, but what we don’t understand is how those dogs live the lives we can only dream of having.
Nicolas Cage’s Dino Skull
Nicolas Cage is one of the greatest actors in Hollywood. In fact, he has been nominated for several major cinematic awards for his versatility in acting. This Academy Award-winning star deserves all these accolades, including a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award.
He is famous for starring in movies like Con Air, National Treasure, Leaving Las Vegas, and Ghost Rider. So it comes as no surprise to us that he has a jaw-dropping net worth of $150 million. However, perhaps because of his lavish lifestyle, his net worth fell down to $25 million in 2018. Still, that’s a fortune. One of his most expensive purchases is not some property from somewhere around the world but a $276 thousand dinosaur skull. We should definitely ask his financial advisor if he thought that was a wise buy.
Celine Dion’s $2 Million Humidifier
It’s no exaggeration that Celine Dion is one of the most iconic talents to ever emerge out of Hollywood. It does not come as a shock to us, knowing that she is one of the best-selling artists of all time. After all, she sold over 200 million records worldwide. Her greatest hits include My Heart Will Go On, The Power Of Love, and It’s All Coming Back To Me Now. As of 2020, she is still one of the wealthiest musicians out there. Her net worth is estimated to be around $430 million. She must have a lot of properties covered by great insurance companies. However, like many international superstars, Celine has bought ridiculous things. One of them is a 2-million-dollar humidifier. Yes, you read that right—a humidifier. We sincerely hope it does not keep her surroundings too humid.
