Celebrities just can’t help themselves, can they? From soccer players, to American footballers, to TV stars, boxers and rappers… everyone’s showing off their money!!
When these celebrities took these photos flaunting their money, they were probably influenced by a desire to have some fun, to show off their money and to improve their social standing! For some (namely 50 cent and Floyd Mayweather) this may have actually helped their careers somewhat as this matches the persona that they are trying to create.
However, some of these photos were pretty detrimental for the stars’ careers.
Take Matthew Ghent (the gentlemen in the bath), for example. We didn’t see much of him after this photo. The same goes for Nile Ranger who went from having regular appearances for Premier League side Newcastle United and is now AWOL from bottom of the Championship Blackpool.
Whilst these photos are great for entertainment value, its always good to try to learn a lesson from others’ mistakes. And, what is the biggest lesson we learn from these 20 celebrities showing off their money? Probably a lesson in humility!!
That said, I don’t think that showing off their money affected the gangster cats too badly though….!
