Now without further ado, let’s take a look at some of these star-studded figures, shall we?
If you’re a fan of mixed martial arts, then it’s safe to say you’ve already heard of Conor McGregor at this point. Beginning his amateur career in 2007, aged 18, McGregor finally made it to the big leagues a year later and has since made quite a name for himself. Of course, along with fame came wealth. Besides his bouts in the ring, McGregor has also dabbled in various business investments, most notably his August McGregor fashion brand and Proper No. Twelve Irish whiskey. Thanks to these, he now has a net worth of around $200 million. On his Instagram, fans could see what the UFC fighter is up to during his free time. Besides posting videos of himself training, it sure looks like McGregor and his family know how to relax in style.
One of the most popular families in Hollywood is arguably the Jenner-Kardashians. Along with their stint on the reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians, each family member has also ventured into other endeavors. Well, for Kylie Jenner, she became a model and a businesswoman. Thanks to these, she could now spend significant portions of investment money purchasing numerous things. For one, she spent as much as $200,000 to buy her daughter a gray pony. If that’s not enough, Jenner now also has her very own car collection, which includes four-wheeled beauties such as a Lamborghini Aventador and a Land Rover.
Another Kardashian many of us know would be Kim Kardashian. A media personality, businesswoman, and model, another title that she might have in the near future is lawyer: she is currently taking a four-year law apprenticeship, among other endeavors.

Plus, for her third child’s nursery, mama Kim spent as much as $550,000 to ensure it has all the things to make baby Chicago happy. To make things even better, she also installed gold-plated toilet seats worth $750,000 in her mansion – that’s even pricier than her most expensive car!
