You may know Bryan Williams as the ringleader of the now disbanded rap duo Big Tymers. You may know Bryan Williams by his better recognized alias, Birdman. Or, if are unfamiliar modern American hip-hop, you may not know Bryan Williams at all.
If you haven't heard about the ways of Birdman, the co-founder of the mega successful hip hop conglomerate know as Cash-Money records, nobody is faulting you. However, the southern rap mogul has recently made the news by staying true to his ca$h money roots, purchasing a $2.1 million Bugatti Veyron.
To prepare for the delivery of his pimped out ride, Birdman dressed in all-red adidas gear (matching the all-red car), and even brought a card that read "I am expensive."
Simply Pricele$$. For everything else there's mastercard.
Why should you care about this? Well, unless you were the Bugatti salesperson, you probably shouldn't. However, this obscene purchase brings to light some of the most hefty athlete splurges of the day. The athlete, a member of a truly unique social class, will often receive heaps of cash at an early age. Through a combination of immaturity and the desire to live large, many athletes will often spend, spend, and spend until they realize that their vault is empty.
Here's to some of the craziest athletes purchases of all-time. From the obnoxiously expensive to the downright ridiculous, all of the members on this list have truly taken their fame to another level. Unfortunately for some players, many of these purchases have helped driven them into bankruptcy.
