If you were rich enough to throw the party of your dreams, would you splurge on a private performance by your favorite rapper, a shipment of some wildly expensive tropical flowers or a military parade? Why not all of the above! Here are eight crazy, lavish, and over-the-top-parties thrown by the world’s elite.
Elizabeth Brooks’ Bat Mitzvah
Former military manufacturer CEO David Brooks spared no expense when his daughter Elizabeth turned 13. He spent a ridiculous $10 million on her party and paid the likes of Aerosmith, Ciara, 50 Cent and inexplicably, Kenny G, to perform at her party. As it later turned out though, he footed the bill with money he embezzled from his company. We doubt there were any “mazel tovs” when he was hauled off to jail in 2007.
