12 Outrageous Celebrity Purchases


Beyonce’s leggings

A normal pair of leggings might cost you anywhere from $10 to nearly $100. Beyonce’s got a pair of Balenciaga leggings that cost $100,000. You could probably buy a condo with that money. She used the golden leggings to perform at the 2007 BET Awards.

Bono’s hat

Buying a nice hat isn’t that big of a deal in and of itself. But when you reportedly purchase a $1,700 planet ticket just to fly that hat to you, that’s kind of crazy. Maybe with the hat firmly in his grasp, Bono found what he was looking for.

Daniel Radcliffe’s mattress

It certainly pays to get a good night’s sleep. And for “Harry Potter” star Daniel Radcliffe, apparently it takes $17,000. That’s how much it cost him to get a custom-made Savoir mattress.



Donald Trump’s golden jet

The Donald’s customized 757 comes equipped with a dining room, VIP area, guest bedroom, and Trump’s own master bedroom and bathroom (where there’s a 24-karat gold-plated sink). To stay safe in the air, the 757 has 24-karat gold-plated seat belts. Did we mention that Rolls Royce engines power the jet?

Katy Perry’s space gift

Beat this for a gift: Katy Perry bought her then-fiance Russell Brand a trip to space for his 35th birthday. It only cost her $200,000. No word on whether Brand underwent the intense training to fly on the Virgin Galactic mission.

Kim Basinger’s town

In 1989 Kim Basinger spent $20 million to buy a town. Yes, an entire town. She had intended to turn the small town of Braselton, Ga., into a tourist attraction. Unfortunately, her plans never came to fruition. Five years after purchasing the town, Basinger and her partners sold it for $1 million and subsequently declared bankruptcy.

Lady Gaga’s carp and ghost detector

Who wouldn’t want a fish tank filled with 27 koi carp or an electromagnetic field reader? The Little Monsters queen reportedly dropped $60,000 to have special koi carp fish shipped from Japan because she had a dream about them. That’s $10,000 less than she spent to buy an electromagnetic field reader, a machine that supposedly detects ghosts.



Mike Tyson's bathtub

Mike Tyson must have really loved his then-wife Robin Givens because he bought her a $2 million bathtub as a gift. Are we surprised that he filed for bankruptcy in 2003 after years of financial struggles?

Nicolas Cage’s pyramid and dinosaur skull

Maybe he has a thing for relics of the past? Nicolas Cage reportedly bought a 9-foot-tall pyramid located in a cemetery in New Orleans that he wants to be buried in once he’s dead. No word on the cost, but at least he’s financially preparing for death, right? The movie star also dropped a cool $276,000 on a dinosaur skull. Did we mention that Cage has had debt issues?



Paris Hilton’s home -- for her dogs

We all know Paris Hilton is used to the finer things in life. And the same is probably true for her dogs. The hotel heiress reportedly built a mini replica house for her dogs complete with chandelier, furniture, and a flat-screen TV.



Rihanna's hair

If you love Rihanna’s ever-evolving hairdos, you might not be so envious when you find out that she spends a whopping $22,400 a week to employ the services of a hair stylist. That’s over $1 million spent yearly on the "Umbrella" singer’s hair.



Victoria Beckham's phone

She has a closet to die for -- and a phone that’s golden. Victoria Beckham is the proud owner of an iPhone that’s made out of 24-carat gold and costs about $33,000. How posh, indeed.
