Celebrities have a lot of money, we all know that. And when you have a lot of money, you can afford to spend it on things that most people don’t, we also know that. And if you are an animal lover and a millionaire, well… you do the math. Here are 5 celebrities with the most ridiculously expensive pets:
1- Usher - a $12,000 Goldendoodle
Back in 2012, Usher (one of the world’s most successful recording artists) spent 12,000 on a pet. It was while attending the Pencils of Promise Gala in New York City, and he ended up outbidding Jessica Szohr, a Gossip Girl star, on a Goldendoodle puppy. The money went to a charity to build schools in third world countries.
2- Britney Spears - $29,000 a year on her dogs
Britney Spears was the princess of pop and of puppies, a title she still holds up to this day. TMZ was once able to obtain Britney Spear’s financial documents from 2016, where it showed that she spent around $29,000 on her pets. There wasn’t much detail about what exactly she spends money on, but it is known that she spends around $300 per grooming session.
3- Mariah Carey - $45,000 a year on her dog
The star spends around $45,000 a year just to groom her dogs. On occasions, she also sends them on their own luxury vacations! Back in 2017, her pooches went to England and she spent $25,000 for around the clock care that included personalized meals, comfy bed hotels and day trips. She also spent $175,000 on the plane tickets to transport them!
4- Nicolas Cage – A $150,000 octopus
Nicolas Cage filed for bankruptcy in 2009 as a result of many bad decisions. His spending habits were questionable, at the very least, and among the things he bought are dinosaur fossils, two king cobras and a castle. Also, he bought a pet octopus that was valued in $150,000.
5- Mike Tyson - over $210,000 on 3 royal Bengal tigers
The heavyweight boxer decided, at one point, that he wanted to have a pet. And when he gave it a thought, he decided that a tiger was a safe bet. But not only that, let’s make it a Royal Bengal tiger. And then he decided that if he could get one, he could get two…or three! He reportedly paid $70,000 per tiger and spent thousands on their feeding and keep.
