There are expensive things and then there are things that are so highly priced it makes us wonder if they are worth the price. But then there are a few ludicrous things money can buy that would make no sense or whatsoever. Today we talk about 8 of the most ludicrously expensive things people have spent their money on. These purchases might seem absurd and outlandish, but when you have the extra cash, why not?
Here are 8 of the most ludicrously expensive things people have bought:
1. Mike Tyson’s $2.3 Million (16.5 Cr.) 24 Karat solid Gold Bathtub
You may have heard of Mike Tyson, the former American boxer, arguably known for his outstanding boxing career. From 1985 to 2006 in he had 58 fights and won 50 of them. But boxing isn’t the only thing he’s known for. Mike Tyson is also known for his crazy spending habits on ludicrously expensive things. The most famous being his 2 white Bengal tigers that he bought for a $150,000. But the craziness doesn’t stop there; Mike has reportedly made himself a solid 24 karat Gold Bathtub that cost him a whopping $2.3 Million. Mike Tyson literally bathes in Gold.
2. Nicholas Cage’s $276,000 (2 Cr.) Dinosaur Skull
In 2007 Nicholas Cage outbid Leonardo DiCaprio to purchase this Tyrannosaurus Bataar skull. He bought the skull from an Art gallery in Beverly Hills for a hefty $276,000. But 7 years later the authorities contacted him reporting the skull he had purchased was stolen from Mongolia. Cage voluntarily returned the skull to the Mongolian Govt. in 2015. He was not convicted because he had bought it from the gallery along with a certificate of authenticity. We hope he is more careful the next time he’s buying such ludicrously expensive things.
3. Beyonce’s $100,000 (72 Lakhs) gold leggings by Balenciaga
You know it’s going to be extravagant if it’s Beyoncé. If you watched her performance at the 2007 BET Awards, you would’ve noticed her shimmering gold pair of leggings. Well, the gold on those leggings were the real shit. She got Balenciaga to ‘upgrade’ her leggings with real gold for the show because when you have the money why not. The pair cost her somewhat around a $100,000. That could get you 2173 pairs and still have some change left. It definitely one of the most ludicrously expensive things Beyoncé has ever bought.
4. Katy Perry’s $200,000 (1.4 Cr.) ticket to space
What was the craziest thing you got on your birthday? Whatever it was I’m sure it wouldn’t match what Katy Perry bought her ex-fiancé Russell Brand for his 35th birthday. A $200,000 ticket to space. The ticket was sold by Virgin Galactic who plan to become the first people to send people to space for fun. Ashton Kutcher and Justin Beiber have also reportedly bought tickets for it. It sure is one of the most ludicrously expensive things someone might have ever gifted to anyone.
5. Jay-Z’s $55 Million (396 Cr.) racehorse
Rapper, Music producer and Beyoncé’s husband, Jay-Z is also not behind when it comes to spending money on ludicrously expensive things. The Rapper reportedly bought a champion racehorse for a mind-boggling $55 Million. California Chrome has won the Kentucky Derby that is one of the most famous horse races in the world.
6. Kim Basinger’s $20 Million (144 Cr.) town in Georgia
When it comes to buying ludicrously expensive things, nothing beats Kimila Ann Basinger. The Actor, Singer, and former model decided to buy a whole city while she was stuck in traffic in a town in Georgia. She came across a sign that read: “Braselton: If You Lived Here, You’d Be Home by Now”. That’s when she got interested in the town and decided to buy the city and turn it into a huge tourist attraction. Kim bought the town of Braselton in North Georgia for a huge amount of $20 Million. Sadly though her investment didn’t pay off. In 1993 5 years after she bought the town, she sold it for a $1 Million and declared bankruptcy.
7. Celine Dion’s $2 (14.4 Cr) Million humidifier
We’re sure the average humidifier in your home cost around $20-$30 but that’s minuscule compared to Celine Dion’s one. During her stay at the Caesar Palace, she requested something ludicrously expensive thing from the hotel. She had them install a $2 Million humidifier. I was to protect her vocal chords from the ‘harsh’ desert condition over there.
8. Akon’s Diamond mine – $???
We all have a special place in our heart for Akon, as we all for sure bumped to his songs when we were kids. Though the star may be silent now his actions aren’t. He’s been seen spending Millions to provide African villages with power and get the kids their education. Apart from which, the singer spent his money on a ludicrously expensive thing. Well, most music stars spend their money on different diamond jewelry and watches, Akon went ahead and bought a whole diamond mine for him. We still don’t know how much he exactly paid for it but we are pretty sure it must’ve been a hefty price.
9. Donald Trump’s $100 (721 Cr.) Million Private Jet
We can’t talk about ludicrously expensive things unless we talk about Donald Trump. We all know the new president of the United States has been known for his famously lavish lifestyle and spending habits. There are private jets and then there are private jets. Donald Trump has spent around a $100 Million in his Boeing 757-200 that’s been custom-outfitted to meet his crazy desires. It is a one of a kind private jet that includes almost everything gold plated. From the sink to seatbelts almost everything is gold plated on his plane. It reportedly costs between $8000 to $13,000 per hour to operate the plane, but when you have the money why not.
