Kendal Jenner spent an exorbitant amount of cash to buy a new couch for her home.
The 27-year-old model took to her blog to share her latest purchase, describing this ultra-expensive sofa as being “all woven and a really groovy navy with purple shimmer.”
The knotted sofa is made by Edra and at $52,000, it costs more than a family car.
4. Paris Hilton’s dog mansion – $350,000
Paris Hilton spent around $350,000 to build a mansion… for her dogs.
The house was designed to be a faithful (scale) replica for Paris’ mansion and, as you can imagine, it is adorned with lavish furniture and the walls are painted pink.
The 42-year-old socialite is known for her extravagance and her obsession with the color pink.
A while back, she had her Bentley painted pink, with matching pink upholstery and pink wheels.
3. Mike Tyson’s gold bathtub – $2.2 million
Mike Tyson forked out a whopping $2.2 million on a bathtub made entirely from 24-karat gold.
Spending seven figures on a bathtub sounds insane but this, believe it or not, was actually a romantic gesture.
This is because the six-time heavyweight champion actually bought the bathtub as a gift for his wife.
2. Bill Gates’ Leonardo Da Vinci’s journal – $30.8 million
Bill Gates was the world’s richest man for nearly twenty years, and he only recently abdicated his ‘throne’.
The 67-year-old billionaire once spent a fortune on something that’s extremely rare and unusual.
A while back, when he was still topping Forbes’ Billionaires list, Gates spent over $30 million on Leonardo Da Vinci’s journal.
He had the pages digitally scanned and actually added one of them as a wallpaper for an early version of Microsoft Windows.
His $30m investment, when adjusted for inflation, is worth nearly $60 million today.
1. Jay-Z’s thoroughbred stallion – $55 million
Jay-Z made what is probably his craziest investment yet when he purchased a thoroughbred, race-winning stallion.
California Chrome, a 12-year-old horse, is the Lionel Messi of the horse racing world.
He won American Horse of the Year twice, the Kentucky Derby and the Dubai World Cup among others.
Jay-Z spent a whopping $55 million to acquire the horse.
