Celebrities are not usually known for their subtlety. Why can blame them? If you made as much money as the average celebrity, would you channel all your money away into investment and college accounts for your children? Would you live a life of simplicity and only spend the money that you needed to survive? Most people would say no.
Though neither lifestyle is a bad choice, most people who might acquire large sums of money would spend it on luxury items for themselves and their loved ones. Once a person bought everything they could ever want, perhaps they would then choose to funnel the money away or spend it in wise ways as to ensure that they don’t run out of money in the long run, but for most celebrities, they can afford to live a little lavishly.
As an example of lavish spending and living, here are some of the most luxurious celebrity homes out there.
In case you have your sights set on purchasing a luxury mansion previously inhabited by a sports icon, then you’re in luck. Michael Jordan is still looking for a buyer for his crazy huge mansion just outside of Chicago. The mansion is 56,000 square feet, features 9 bedrooms and 15 bathrooms, a crazy amount of space for wine, and several other unique amenities. Apparently there’s even a small grass island that sits on top of the pool.
The mansion was listed at $29 million dollars, but apparently nobody wanted to shell out that kind of cash to live in the Michael Jordan of mansions. The home is currently listed at $14.855 million. That’s a steal of a deal, so you better act fast.
Spend it Like Beckham
Soccer player David Beckham and his fashion designer wife allegedly bought a house in the UK listed at $41 million dollars. It’s said to be the most expensive home in the country and features amazing gardens, and enough real estate to hold over 350 soccer fields, which is obviously the long term goal.
The home is very classic in nature and really lends to the Downtown Abbey vibe that all United Kingdomers obviously strive for. Congrats, Beckham family! We expect several more English babies out of you, as well as an invitation to dine on tea and crumpets in your beautiful gardens.
In any case, the part of the human race that doesn’t get to live like the celebrities at least gets to do it vicariously through all the tabloids and reality television that permeates our society. You may not own a luxury mansion or have the finest dining room that money can buy, but as long as you’re happy, that’s all that matters.
