Did Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Really Spend $750,000+ On Toilets?
When it comes to crazy celebrity spending habits, it’s hard to know what to believe. When it comes to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, it’s even harder than with most! These two bought an $11 million Bel-Air mansion like it was no big deal, and she owns a $90,000 pair of sneakers!
But even considering their luxurious lifestyle, it was hard to swallow the story that spread like wildfire on the web yesterday, that Kim and Kanye had purchased four gold-plated toilets for their Bel-Air pad, to the tune of $765,000. That’s right, over three quarters of a million dollars on toilets.
Weird as that little fact was, the story got worse. “Kanye has ordered six special-edition beds from the company that supplies London’s Savoy Hotel, costing £114,000 ($175,184) each,” the story continued. “They are also kitting out their kitchen with almost £500,000 ($768,350) of Electrolux gear and a Swarovski- encrusted fridge freezer.”
We maintain that a crystal-encrusted refrigerator probably isn’t a real thing, and while we’re sure you can custom order something like a gold-plated toilet, that item sounds suspiciously like something you would make up in a textbook case of rich people-mockery. “Kim and Kanye? They have so much money they probably have golden toilets!” Come on now.
But GossipCop was on the case, and according to the site’s source, all of this is “not true.”
That’s all?! Well, that’s not quite as juicy a response as we were hoping for, but we’ll take it. Until we see a golden toilet on Kimye’s episode of Cribs, we’ll consider this case closed.
