All of us want to be rich. It’s what keeps us at our desks until the early hours of the morning, grafting, looking into investment opportunities, playing blackjack, and buying loads of lottery tickets. We dream of a better life by the crystal blue poolside, without a care in the world except that our shiny new Ferrari needs a wash. But what if you already had all these luxuries? These billionaires below are proof that you can lose it and become quite eccentric when your life isn’t limited to a budget.
1. Jocelyn Wildenstein
Believe it or not, this cat-like disaster used to be a strikingly gorgeous Swiss socialite. She was introduced to air heir billionaire Alec Wildenstein by Adnan Khashoggi on his private 60,000 acre Kenyan ranch. The two eloped. It was during their marriage that Jocelyn began her multi-million dollar plastic surgery ventures. She transformed her features into that of a cat to please her husband. The terrible disaster of the surgeries, however, did little to please Alec because Jocelyn caught him in bed with a 19-year-old Russian model in 1997. She wanted to divorce immediately and it turned out to be one of the biggest divorce settlements in history. Jocelyn got $2.5 billion with an allowance of $100 million per year for three years. The judge ruled that she couldn’t use any of this money for any more surgeries. Jocelyn has a taste for young men as he current boyfriend is twenty years younger than her.
2. Robert Klark Graham
Robert used to be an optometrist who got rich inventing shatter-proof lenses. He didn’t want to stop there, though. He embarked on a mission to create a “master race”. In the year 1980 he opened the “Repository for Germinal Choice”, which was supposed to be a sperm bank that only took its donations from Nobel Prize winners. Unfortunately, winning such an accolade requires a lifetime of work and the elderly sperm he was collecting forced him to lower his standards to less accomplished men. At the age of 90 in 1997, Robert slipped in the bathtub, knocked himself out, and drowned.
3. Mark Zuckerberg
Tis guy became a billionaire when he wasn’t even old enough to drink. Mark, the founder and CEO of Facebook, is a fairly normal guy, but he’s super awkward and dresses like it’s always laundry day. In 2011, he announced he would no longer be eating meat unless he had killed it with his own two hands. Although he claimed to be “basically vegetarian”, he didn’t hesitate to tell his friends in May 2011 that he had “just killed a pig and a goat.” But since 2012, the billionaire has gone back to getting his steaks from the store.
4. Jeff Bezos
Jeff is the founder of Amazon.com. He is worth over $20 billion dollars! From an early age he showed he was a mechanical genius by earning a degree in both electrical engineering and computer science. For over ten years, he worked on privatizing spaceflight through Blue Origin. He is also responsible for a $42 million funding for the Clock of the Long Now, as clock designed to run for 10,000 years buried deep in the Sierra Diablo Mountains!
5. Cayetana Fitz-James Stuart
Another victim of plastic surgery gone wrong, Cayetana is a Duchess and she stands as a testament to the power of true love. When she was 85-years-old, she was estimated to be worth almost $5 billion and decided to marry 61-year-old Alfonso Diez Carabantes in 2011. There was a huge backlash from her family as well as the King of Spain, Juan Carlos. To prove that wealth had nothing to do with her decision to marry him, the Duchess gave her six children their inheritance early. This inheritance consisted of a vast fortune including estates, priceless artwork, and even the correspondence of Christopher Columbus. She completely renounced her wealth. Now, that’s true love!
Well, there you have it. You can’t be that rich and not have a few quirky and unpredictable sides to your personality. On the bright side, you probably wouldn’t end up being as eccentric as any of these billionaires, but you certainly might acquire a taste for unexpected purchases. It’s all part of the millionaire magic. Embrace it!
Play your lucky numbers now and you could soon be joining the ranks of the rich and famous!
Best of luck,
