When you’ve got a 101 acre property with a nine thousand square foot mansion housing an equestrian facility and backing under Puslinch lake near Cambridge, Ontario.
Well, it’s hard to imagine wanting to spend your time anywhere else, unless your other home is an 8.5 million 1930 Monterrey Colonial, recently imagined by a Hollywood production designer, Charles Fontaine.
What can I say? Decisions are hard, especially for a megastar like Justin Bieber.
Now the one time teenage heartthrob is making headlines for spending upwards of 1.3 million on his recent wedding, including expenditures like $400000 on an engagement ring.
And well, I mean, that’s a good investment. Happy wife, happy life. But he also spent about $300000 on the flower arrangement, which included white roses and camomile.
Okay, for flowers that may be a little obnoxious, but then there was the twenty five thousand dollars he spent on a special wedding grill made out of five carat lavender diamonds.
Yeah, that to me is a little bit crazy. I mean, with nearly 130 million Instagram followers. Well, you should’ve picked that up for free. I mean, you just had to post it, tag somebody, and he’d be getting all the grills he wants free of charge, right?
In this article we’re also going to be taking a look at Justin Bieber’s extensive car collection.
I mean, the man has been seen in over 25 different vehicles, which include a Cadillac CTS V coupe and a Porsche 997 Turbo. Now, both of these throw around 100 grand to buy.
Now, the kid has spent some bank on his whip collection, and if you’re keeping track, I said twenty five. So that means he’s got more vehicles for each year he’s been alive.
2020 is already shaping up to be a busy year for Justin Bieber.
Not only is he preparing to embark on his fourth concert tour, he also had his YouTube originals documentary titled “Seasons” that hit the Internet, as did his new album “Changes”, and that dropped on Valentine’s Day, which was well played because that was an easy gift for me to buy for the wifey.
Despite only being twenty five years old, well, Justin, he has more money than he can possibly imagine what to do with, sometimes, well, that’s exactly the sort of thing that would get him in trouble.
Now, by all accounts, the dude has mellowed out over the past two years, a steady relationship and marriage.
Well, they can tend to do that to a guy. So let’s take a look at what Justin has managed to accumulate up until this point in his career and determine if maybe, just maybe. Well, if he should have looked into a prenup.
Justin Bieber is a Canadian singer and songwriter who was born in Stratford, Ontario, in 1994.
Though he was born to a middle class family, Justin’s mother, Patricia Mallette, well, she would enter him into local singing competitions and then upload performances to YouTube.
Now, it was through these various uploads that Bieber, grew to be a recognizable brand and his celebrity, well, it took off from there.
At 14, Bieber was discovered online by his now manager, Scooter Braun and while there is some side deal working with Usher.
And since those early days with the singer, he has had plenty of billboard hits.
He’s made tons of merch and he splurged on some crazy expenditures.
We’re talking everything from a Fisker Karma to a glamorous wedding to his now wife and model, the aforementioned Hailey Baldwin.
Now, most sources, agree that Justin Bieber’s net worth is somewhere in the two hundred and eighty five million range. So we got to take a look back and figure out how he got there.
Now it isn’t just music that Justin has made his bank off, he’s got some strange investments, like a hotel slipper collection.
That’s right. The only other person that I can imagine that would want to get into the slipper game, well, they’re orange in color and equally as polarizing.
Okay, maybe way more polarizing. But when you start adding up Slipper merch and couple it with #sponkindofplenty, not to mention lucrative endorsement deals, album sales, sold out tour dates and my personal favorite, that good old fashioned YouTube money.
Well, you can get to two hundred eighty five million pretty quickly. Now it all started with the music, so we might as well start there as well. Now, despite most people either loving or hating his music, well, Biebs has created plenty of major hits over the years, from “one time” to his most recent hit “Yummy”.
Now, in the span of 12 years, he’s released five albums and over twenty nine singles.
His ascend was so sudden that by 2014 he had already made Forbes list of highest earning celebrities under 30, which had him pegged at around 80 million dollars in earnings for that year alone.
Now, three years later, he would make the list again, this time clocking in 83.5 million for 2017.
Now, most of these earnings at the time were coming from his touring, his My World tour, it made him 53.3 million in ticket sales. And his second tour, believe, it pulled in even more at 69.9 million.
Nice. Now despite that success, both of those would pale in comparison to the reported $250 million in ticket sales that his third tour “purpose” would bring in.
But arenas around the world weren’t the only thing Bieber was selling out.
In 2011 at the heart of Bieber fever, well, Justin, he released a concert film called Justin Bieber Never Say Never, which opened to a substantial 29.5 million North America during its first weekend.
And it would bring in a total of 73 million, which it’s still a record for the highest grossing concert film of all time. You don’t just get a lot of those. More recently, he’s been linked with the new clothing brand, Drew House and their five dollar hotel slipper brand.
Because, I mean, when you’ve already done it all, why not corner the slipper market? Sound smart to me. Having worked with a ton of brands for sponsored content over the years, Well, Bieber, he should be in a good place to capitalize on what he’s seen work and what hasn’t.
I mean, the man has made more money from Instagram sponsored content than most. I mean, he’s worked with everyone from Calvin Klein to Proactiv, Beats by Dre, Adidas, Best Buy and many, many more.
His work with Calvin Klein is probably his most notorious. It’s unclear just how much money C.K. paid him to strip down to his tighty whiteys. But what’s clear is that the ad campaign, it ranked in big bucks.
Reportedly, it brought in seven hundred twenty three million dollars for C.K.. That’s a lot of money, just seeing a young kid shirtless, but hey, what are you going to do? I bet you if I did, they’d lose seven hundred twenty three mil, just saying.
Now the campaign was so popular that it even played a part in his purpose tour, as ads they were run in between his sets. Now he’s maintained a good relationship with the brand ever since and he and Haley, they even posed for a recent campaign in October of 2019.
His proactive campaign was also quite lucrative, pulling in three million dollars for his two year deal. And speaking about the deal with Scooter Braun, he had this to say, “we did it because the kid uses it, I never wanted to do anything with Justin’s brand that isn’t organic. He isn’t manufactured”.
Speaking of authentic, well, between 2011 and 2014, well Bieber, he launched four cosmetic fragrances with his one called “some day”, and that made millions in sales at Macy’s alone.
And I’m sure if we asked Scooter, well, he’ll tell us that the Biebs, he used those perfumes almost as much as he used Proactiv. You know, it’s all organic. Whatever it probably smells great.
Okay, so we’ve taken a look at how the Biebs has come to earn all his money. Now, how exactly does he spend it?
Now early on in his career, well he had this to say, “I’ve got my eye on a few things to spend my money on. I’ve got my own bank card, but I am really good with money. I don’t spend too much at all”.
Despite his intentions at the offset, as the years have gone on, well, Biebs, he spent a crap ton of his own dough. So let’s start with the tattoos. “First tattoo I got was this little guy right here, it’s based on this book that my whole family read, everyone’s got it on their wrists and it was right before I really had any tattoos.
And so I wanted to make sure that it wasn’t visible, and so I put it down here and basically it’s about this seagull who wanted to be more than just a seagull”.
Now at this point, most of his body is covered in ink, including his face, which now has a small script of it reading Grace.
He and Haley also dropped an unknown sum on their new puppy Oscar over Christmas, and considering he once spent thirty five thousand dollars on two exotic cats, tuna and sushi, well, who knows just how much he paid for this dog, Oscar.
Now at one point Justin Bieber took a page out of Michael Jackson’s book and he got himself a pet monkey.
Now, this was reportedly given to him as a birthday gift when he turned 19. But after traveling to Germany with the monkey named Molly, well German officials, they confiscated the animal because it had none of the necessary health related documentation.
Darn too, who doesn’t want a monkey? And rather than fill out the forms, well, Justin, he left the monkey behind, because let’s face it, well, none of us like the paperwork. You like a monkey but who the hell needs to sign shit like that?
In truth, though, Justin really dislikes the idea of putting ink to paper, so much so that he was willing to spend over $10000 to cover, well, his living expenses at a local German zoo than to bring the furry friend home with him.
So, you know, that’s a pretty big flex, just to cater for some responsibility. With money like this, that should come as no surprise that the Biebs, he has more than a few real estate holdings to his name.
He and his model wife, well, they reportedly have a home near London, Ontario, Canada, and that cost them a cool five million bucks.
Now, the house, it was custom built and it features a home theater, a gym, a games room and breathtaking sunsets over the lake.
Now the property, it also houses walking trails and a horse training facility.
He’s also got some property out in Beverly Hills, California. He reportedly paid 8.5 million for a six thousand one hundred square foot home.
And this includes five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a library with an original paneling, also a wet bar, a wine cellar and a home theater.
I don’t know why I needed to tell you it had its original paneling, but some people, they love that.
Outside of this house is a cabana with a fire pit above a zero edge swimming pool, which is surrounded by hand-picked olive trees. That’s pretty dope. And despite reports online that originated with Justin’s Instagram that he was looking to sell the mansion, well, nothing has happened on that front so far.
I mean, why would you sell this place? You got a god damn olive tree near your pool. Literally just live in there.
Now, he and Haley, they also maintain a nearly six thousand square foot apartment in Brooklyn.
This is complete with four bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a gym, a swimming pool, a sauna and a lakefront view.
And that’s all for the tidy sum of one hundred thousand dollars a month, which for New York, probably not that bad. Now, of course, real estate isn’t the only big ticket item that Justin likes to drop his Bieber bucks on.
He also has a substantial car collection that has at times, well, it’s gotten him into a little bit of trouble.
His collection includes a Ferrari F 430, a Lamborghini Aventador, a Ferrari 458 Italia, an Audi R 8, a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder, a Project Gun Range Rover evoke, a smart Ford too, a Campagna T Rex 14 R and many, many, many more.
And sorry to all the car guys out there, I’m butchering these car names, But let’s move on. Now after taking a look at the man’s automobile budget, it’s kind of amazing that he still has as much money as he does.
And finally, before we go, sources inform me that more recently, well, the Biebs has gotten into the art scene, he dropped a ton of cash on cartoon work, including twelve hundred dollars on an art piece honoring the late and great Kobe Bryant.
So after taking into consideration all of these expenses, well did Justin and Haley get a prenup? Well, according to sources, no, they did not. And this may be something that Justin will someday come to regret. After all, the dude is worth close to two hundred eighty five million, and Hailey, in our last count, she was worth something closer to 3 million.
But hey, true love it conquers all, right? Including jealousy over the numbers in one’s bank account. I’m just guessing. I don’t know, whatever. I’m happy for these two. They seem like two lovebirds. But they are quite young, we’ll see what happens.
