Rapper Tinie Tempah went *Back To The Future* for charity.

The design is an homage to the pair that Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) wore in Back to the Future Part II.

Jay-Z paid upwards of $55 million for a champion race horse.

Not just any old racehorse — California Chrome. CC is a former Kentucky Derby champion, as well as a two-time American Horse of the Year winner.

In 2016 California Chrome became the all-time leader in earnings-won.

Jeff Goldblum has a serious obsession with shoes.

Jeff took Complex into his own private world of sneakers.

Mike Tyson and his affinity for big cats became quite costly.

During an appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience, Mike Tyson revealed that he once owned 3 tigers, which he purchased for over $70,000 each.

It also reportedly cost more than $4000 a month to care for each animal.

Michael Vick once bought a custom made fish pond worth more than $85,000.

As if that wasn't enough, the tank was rumored to have cost the former NFL Quarterback another $50,000 in landscape fees.

If it was me, I would have settled for the $5 goldfish from the pet store.

Holly Madison's million dollar breasts.

Celebrities insuring their body parts isn't as uncommon as you might think. Julia Roberts did it with her smile, and J-Lo even has her butt insured.

Holly's breasts are insured for a cool $1 million.

T-Pain's gaming room is worth over $75,000.

Watching this has made me respect T-Pain so much more, which I didn't even think was possible. His hideout is a proverbial haven for gamers and PC nerds alike.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's golden throne.

I've heard of celebrities flushing their money down the drain, but Kim and Kanye take things to an entirely different level.

Their gold-plated toilets cost upwards of $750,000. I wonder how many dollars per flush that would add up to?

Drake reportedly blew over $2 million on a pair of gold-plated Air Jordan's

What makes Drake's purchase of the Midas-inspired sneakers all the more incredulous is the fact that they're unwearable.

They also supposedly weigh more than 200 lbs. Talk about wanting your weight in gold!

Kendall Jenner once spent $52,000 on a sofa.

This is just my opinion but isn't it kind of...ugly? I'm really not meaning to be rude, I'm sure Kendall loves it and everything.

But doesn't it kind of remind you of a bunch of grapes? Or Grimace from McDonald's?

Floyd Mayweather's timepiece is more expensive than your house.

Let me rephrase that: Floyd Mayweather's timepiece is more expensive than your entire block. This diamond -encrusted leviathan, aptly named "The Billionaire," costs a jaw-dropping $18 million dollars.

And that's before tax.

Lebron James spends an utterly ridiculous amount of money to keep his body in peak physical condition.

You're probably thinking that an athlete investing in his body isn't strange at all — and you'd be right. But it isn't what Lebron is spending on, it's how much he's spending that's the real shocker.

King James invests roughly $1.5 million a year in his personal fitness.

President Donald J. Trump's $1 billion dollar private jet.

Cue the Dr. Evil impressions and get that pinky up; Donald Trump's jet is worth over $1 billion.

How? I have no idea. Why? I couldn't possibly begin to say. For what possible purpose? Only The Donald knows.

Tom Cruise caused some concern with this gift to his unborn daughter.

Tom Cruise is an intense and impatient guy. He was so excited about the birth of his daughter Suri, that he bought his own sonogram machine.

The exact amount was never specified, but they run anywhere from $15,000 to $200,000!

Johnny Depp bought his own island.

Johnny bought the private island, dubbed Little Halls Pond Cay back in 2004 for an estimated $3.16 million.

If I had johnny's kind of money, a private island would be the first thing I'd buy.
