The lifestyles of the rich and famous mean that they can make way more extreme purchases than us normal people. However, sometimes celebrities spend outrageous amounts on all kinds of things. From private islands to costly wine, you won’t believe what celebrities spend their money on!
After you see these purchases, maybe you won’t feel so badly about your own “frivolous spending,” because, after all, you didn’t buy a solid gold bathtub or a pricy humidifier! Read on to find out exactly who bought what and why.
Johnny Depp: $30,000 in Wine
When Johnny Depp sued his former business managers for financial mismanagement, they countersued. That’s when the money dirt came out. In the suit, they alleged that Depp’s inability to keep his spending under control caused his money troubles. Details in the lawsuit revealed that Depp spends $2 million a month, including a jaw-dropping amount on wine.
Documents show that the actor spends $30,000 a month on fine wine and that Depp even flies the wine from France to his movie sets! Even more amazing? He spent $3 million to shoot the ashes of Hunter S. Thompson out of a cannon. Why? We have no idea. But it apparently was worth spending millions to do.
