While parents always want their children to be happy, some celebrities take their indulgence to the next level.
This Christmas, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker treated his two children Landon, 20, and Alabama, 18, to Mercedes G-Wagons, which start at around $140,000, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Alabama Barker, who turned 18 on Christmas Eve, also received a Hermès Birkin bagwho sells between $8,000 and $40,000 worth of her mother-in-law, Kourtney Kardashian, and a Cartier diamond watch from Kris Jenner, according to the outlet.
In 2019, Kourtney's sister Kim Kardashian bought her eldest daughter North, then six, a jacket that Michael Jackson once wore to Elizabeth Taylor's birthday party. According to E! News, the jacket sold for more than $65,000 at auction.
“North is a huge Michael Jackson fan, and we knew she would love this,” Kardashian explained in a social media video clip at the time. “We won this at an auction for Northie at Christmas.”
Cardi B and Offset
Not to be outdone, rappers Cardi B and Offset gave their daughter, Kulture, her first Birkin bag when she was just two years old. For his fourth birthday, his parents also gave him $50,000 in cash, according to Vanity Fair.
The “WAP” rapper defended the expensive purchase of a Birkin bag for his then-toddler on Instagram, writing, “If I looked like a bad bitch, an expensive bitch , and I had my kid looking like a bum, then you'd all be talking bullshit. So I'm not mad that Dad bought baby a Birkin. She'll match Mom.
On his third birthday, Culture received a custom-made Birkin with a rainbow pattern made from Swarovski crystals.
The little girl actually asked her mom for a similar bag from Claire's while they were at the mall, which would have been much cheaper, but Cardi B decided to do it again on a Birkin bag.
“Cardi and Kulture were at Claire's, among other places,” Privé Porter CEO Michelle Berk said on page 6. “Kulture saw a small bag with a rainbow on it and started begging for it. In typical Cardi fashion, she didn't get this bag, but called me instead to try and replicate this rainbow on a Birkin for Kulture.”
Beyoncé and Jay-Z
The musical power couple went all out for their eldest daughter Blue Ivy's first birthday in 2013, reportedly gifting her a diamond-encrusted Barbie doll that cost $80,000, according to The Sun.
“Nothing has been too big or too expensive for their little princess,” a source told The Sun at the time. “They wanted her first birthday to set the tone for the rest of her life. They work hard for their money, and the first thing they want to spend it on is their little girl.”
The couple also spent $1 million a year when she was little on a daycare at the Brooklyn Nets' Barclays Center so the couple could watch a game with their daughter nearby, according to the New York Post.
For “Fast & Furious” star Tyrese Gibson, Birkin bags and $80,000 Barbies are just child's play.
When Entertainment Tonight asked the 44-year-old in 2015 what his most “over-the-top” gift was, he responded, “I just bought my daughter an island.” I can't say (where). She knows everything about it, and the island is called Love Island.
The gift was for Shayla Gibson's eighth birthday.
