    I thought I had heard it all but this one by far surpasses all the craziest money splurges of all time.  41 years-old Russian Billionaire Roman Abramovich, owner of the British soccer team, Chelsea Football Club, and also one of the richest men in the world has just made a point to let the whole world know he is definitely in another league when it comes to ballin’ by recently purchasing a house called La Leopolda located in france that is reportedly said to be worth $500 million dollars!! Oprah, John Travolta, even past owner Bill Gates are not even seeing him right now. People, I don’t think y’all might actually realize the magnitude of this purchase. $500,000,000 dollars, its half of a billion dollars, please just take a good look at how many zeros are in this figure.  Billionaire Roman Abromovich’s new crib is worth more than P. Diddys entire wealth, and also Jay-z’s. This is just absurd and crazy, whats next and when do we draw the line as human beings. I’m not hating on him though because he is a self made billionare whos fortune was built off of oil; his net worth is about $23.5 billion, I’m sure he works hard for his money but damn he is just swimming in cash!!!!
