15 Hollywood Celebrities and their Head-Scratching Purchases

It’s no secret that Hollywood pays well compared to other professions such as financial advisors or medical personnel. They may spend all of their earnings on necessities such as houses, cars, and jewelry. They do, however, make poor decisions that cost them a fortune. Here are a few examples.

1. Jay Z – $55 million Race Horse

It’s unclear whether the Empire State of Mind rapper made a profit from the mammal, but it was a stunning purchase. That amount can buy a massive mansion in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, with a garage full of luxury cars from brands like Lamborghini or Bugatti, and still leave plenty of money for real estate investment.

2. Beyonce- $311,000 Heels

So, whatever Queen B decides to do with her hard-earned money is entirely up to her. However, she has made a specific purchase that may be too expensive for many. It is a pair of House of Borgezie’s Princess Constellation high heels that cost her $310,000. This stiletto was encrusted with 1,370 diamonds weighing a total of 65.5 carats.

3. Kim Basinger – $20 Million Town

The actress did, in fact, purchase an entire town for $20 million. Braselton, Georgia, has a population of 1,600 people and a land area of 1,600 acres.

4. Bono – $1,700 Plane Ticket

The Irish singer paid $1,700 for a plane ticket to retrieve his hat. Others may find it amusing, but this hat may have sentimental value for him, as evidenced by his decision to spend that much credit and travel for hours just to reunite with it.

5. Mike Tyson – $2.3 Million Bathtub

A luxurious bathtub, to be sure, but the stunning price tag came from the material it was made of – solid gold.

6. Paris Hilton – $325,000 Doghouse

Her name alone connotes luxury and extravagance. One example is this $325,000 doghouse, which could have been a fully furnished home for many people.

7. Tom Cruise – $200,000 In-House Sonogram Machine

When his second wife, Katie Holmes, became pregnant with their daughter, he purchased this machine. It’s unclear why he needed to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars when there are numerous hospitals nearby that have similar machines.

8. Nicolas Cage – $276,000 Dinosaur skull

If it had been legally purchased, it could have been a one-of-a-kind investment, but it wasn’t. According to NBC News, the roughly 70 million-year-old Tyrannosaurus bataar skull he paid $276,000 for was owned by the Mongolian government and was only stolen from them. He then returned the skull, but it was not stated whether the money he spent was also returned to him. He did, however, pay his lawyer’s fee when he settled things for him.

9. Celine Dion – $2 Million Humidifier

According to Celebrity Net Worth, the iconic singer is worth $800 million. Even though $2 million is a small fraction of that sum, a humidifier at that price is still perplexing.

10. Lady Gaga – $50,000 Ghost Detector

Many people do not believe in ghosts, but the Born This Way singer is doing her part to prove them by purchasing a $50,000 ghost detecting machine.

11. Donald Trump – $100 Million Private Jet

This can take credit for being the most expensive and perplexing purchase on this list. The former President of the United States owns a private jet with a sink and seat belts made of 24 karat gold, costing $100 million.

12. Miley Cyrus – $24,000 Hair Extensions

When it comes to Miley’s hair, she is willing to spend thousands of dollars to keep it in pristine condition. The intention is admirable, but the sum is difficult to comprehend.
