What do you give someone who already has everything?
At least that’s what celebrities seem to think when it comes to birthday presents.
Unfortunately, some of them never heard that ‘money can’t buy me love,’ as the old Beatles song went.
And their significant others ditched them right after receiving those mind-blowing expensive gifts. Will they learn? Probably not.
10 $12 Million Island For Brad Pitt
When Brad Pitt turned 50, Angelina Jolie professed her love for him by buying him a heart-shaped island off New York’s coast.
That was after also buying him a waterfall in California and a piece of land for a mansion. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know by now that they are no longer together, and their divorce was rather nasty.
Did Brad get to keep his heart-shaped island and bring his new lovers there? Now that would be fun!
9 $100,000 Speedboat For Tony Romo
Jessica Simpson was so in love with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo she bought him a $100,000 speedboat for his 28th birthday.
The two were quite an item for a time, and Dallas fans were worried their idol was becoming too distracted by the affair.
They needn’t have bothered. Tony and Jessica broke up soon enough, but at least he got to keep the boat.
8 Gold-Plated Tooth For Ryan Reynolds
Who on Earth would want such a present? Eewww! It was actress Scarlet Johansson who had the bright idea of gifting her future husband Ryan Reynolds with one of her wisdom teeth encased in gold, to be worn as a necklace.
Their marriage lasted only two years, so you can safely say their decision to tie the knot wasn’t sage.
Can you imagine Reynolds still wearing that necklace? ‘What’s that, honey? Oh, that’s one of my ex’s wisdom teeth, darling!’
7 $1.5 Million S*x Toy For Victoria Beckham
That must be quite a toy to cost that kind of money. It seems that David Beckham offered his wife a platinum-covered vibrator for her birthday.
Whatever happened to a romantic candle-lit dinner, with roses and champagne? Yeah, that’s for plebs, we know.
Anyhow, the real question here is why did she need such a toy in the first place? Things not going great in the bedroom anymore?
