Kirsty was crowned Miss UK in 1988. The former beauty queen used to be married to Ernesto Bertarelli, an Italian-born Swiss billionaire and philanthropist. Her now ex-husband is the 6th wealthiest person in the UK, which made Kirsty Britain’s richest woman while the two were still together.
Kirsty can hold her own though, and is a singer, songwriter, and philanthropist. Before the divorce happened, the couple enjoyed sailing in their private yacht Vava II which is worth around $130 million. It is also the 33rd largest in the world.
Elvis Presley – Convair 880, Estimated $3 Million
The king of rock and roll, Elvis Presley, purchased this jet for $600,000. The Convair 880 is an American narrow-body business jet constructed by the Convair division of General Dynamics. The jet was designed to compete with the Douglas DC-8 and Boeing 707.
Elvis purchased the jet on April 17, 1975. The king had no problem affording this purchase, as he is regarded as one of the most influential and celebrated musicians of the 20th century. Elvis had the plane decked out in gold-plated bathroom fittings and hired the decorators behind Air Force One. The plane was named Lisa Marie after his daughter and can now be found on display at Graceland.
Simon Cowell – Gulfstream G550, Estimated $61.5 Million
Media mogul who is most recognized as the creator of X-factor in Britain and the overly critical American idol judge likes to live big. This is evident by his $29 million home in Beverly Hills and by his $61.5 million Gulfstream G550.
Apparently, Simon Cowell was once bankrupt. He is far from that now and has amassed a fortune of $550 million. Even with a net worth like that, his private jet seems a bit steep. We hope he is working with a financial advisor so he doesn’t go bankrupt again.
Jackie Chan – Embraer Legacy- Estimated $20 Million
The famed action film Chinese actor holds the Guinness Book of World Records for the Most Stunts Performed by a Living Actor. He has been acting since the 1960s and has become a household name in the Hollywood movie industry.
As a stuntman, it is not surprising that Chan loves to fly. After consulting with his wealth management advisor, he purchased a luxurious private jet, Embraer Legacy. While the insurance for the jet is probably very high, it is clearly no obstacle for Jackie.
Jerry Seinfeld – Gulfstream V, Estimated $22 million
With a staggering net worth of $860 million, Jerry Seinfeld made big money from his nine-year dedication to Seinfeld in which he played a semi-fictional version of himself. The comedian, actor, producer, and director started his career by doing stand-up comedy in college productions. The now millionaire can afford to live like a king. And live like a king he does.
Seinfeld purchased his private jet, Gulfstream, which is estimated at around $22 million and he was even able to do so without a bank loan. He has been in the comedy business since 1976 and never fails to make us laugh our heads off.
