Movies / Celebrities who spent money on the most pointless stuff / Tamara Ecclestone takes a bath inside a giant crystal

Tamara Ecclestone is the daughter of Bernie Ecclestone, the 86-year-old "supremo" of Formula One racing. He also happens to be the fourth-richest person in Britain, so you know his daughter isn't worried about her retirement. What she is worried about, however, is her bath, because as she readily admits, she spends a lot of time in there. So much so, in fact, that she has decided to spend $1.5 million to "upgrade" it.

But we're not talking about installing a nicer faucet, or jets, but something rather more ambitious. In 2011, she sent an "expedition" up the Amazon in search of a crystal large enough to make a bath out of. The end result probably looks something like a smooth geode, but big enough for a whole human to bathe in. And apart from the cost of sending people to look for the shiny rock, it also needed to be shipped back to London, polished, and then the house needed to be reinforced to hold the weight, which goes some way to explain — if not excuse — the expense. Though if she ever gets bored of it, she can always cut it up and donate the pieces to pseudoscience.
