Crazy Celebrity Spending Stories You Must Read to Believe

She spent THAT much money on a BARBIE DOLL?

Black Friday is upon us, folks, and that means copious spending is probably in your future. Whether your poison is clothes, electronics or food (like this writer), your wallet will inevitably get a workout this weekend. That's a good thing. Don't question it. Just get your life.

The workout might be a little easier if you check out Old Navy on Thursday. If you're one of the first people in line on Thanksgiving, you might win $1 million. With that cash, you can definitely splurge on some ridiculous swag. These 10 celebrities know a thing or two about that. You won't believe the crazy amount of money they spent on some pretty pointless (but slay-worthy) things. But, hey, if you have $1 million, wouldn't you do the same?

Kim Kardashian

The selfie trailblazer and her mother, Queen Kris Jenner, dropped $100,000 on seven handbags from a high-end French designer. And I thought I was too hot to trot for getting my mom a $50 purse from a department store...

Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth put all baby shower-goers to shame in 2012 with the present she bestowed upon Beyoncé and Jay-Z's spawn Blue Ivy: A $979 stroller. What, is it molded in gold or something?!

Victoria Beckham

Posh goes big or she goes home. In 2013, the Spice Girl dropped more than $1 million on an assortment of high-luxury goods, including dresses, handbags and even sofas. You'd think with all of this stuff, she'd be able to smile!

Lady Gaga

Think you're a baller for your $5 gold fish? Think again. Mother Monster loves her marine life so much she spent $60,000 on koi fish and a tank. That's literally the price of a small house.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z

The king and queen of America spent $80,000 on a diamond-encrusted Barbie doll for Blue Ivy. We wonder if they sprung for a bedazzled dream house to go with it.

Angelina Jolie

My wallet hurts when I buy a $15 bouquet of flowers. We bet Angelina's purse was perfectly fine when she purchased an $18,500 olive tree for hubby Brad.

Nicolas Cage

And the award for the weirdest outrageous purchase goes to decorated National Treasure Thespian Nicolas Cage, who outbid Leonardo DiCaprio on a dinosaur skull for a cool $276,000. What a true lover of history!

Paris Hilton

This award-winning, jet-setting DJ chucked out major cash for a dog house modeled exactly like her own California mansion. $325,000 to be exact. Yes, you read that correctly: a dog house.

Mike Tyson

The boxer spent $2 million on a bathtub for his first wife Robin Givens. Bath salts not included.


When you're Bono, you can do crazy-as-hell things like, ya know, spend $1,600 on a plane ticket...for your hat. Yup. A few years back, the U2 frontman realized he forgot his favorite hat on a trip to Italy. So, he dropped major cash to send the accessory over first class.
