What do you get hip hop mogul Jay-Z -who has multiple homes, cars, and tons of expensive jewelry- for Father’s Day?
If you’re his wife Beyonce, why, get him a private jet worth $40 million.
The Inquisitr reported that Beyonce presented Jay-Z with his new ride last Sunday, a Bombardier Challenger 850. The private jet boasted a living room, a kitchen, and two full bathrooms.
An average flight for a private jet like this cost $20,000 to $30,000. There was also the cost of of hiring pilots to fly the aircraft and mechanics to maintain it.
According to The Inquisitr, buying an expensive private jet was nothing new for Beyonce and Jay-Z. The couple spent $1 million on a family-friendly vehicle to bear their cute baby Blue Ivy Carter. Jay and Beyonce also built their newborn daughter her very own 2000+ square foot nursery.
Another memorable gift from Beyonce was a $2 million Bugatti Veyron supercar for Jay’s 41st birthday two years ago. And back in January of this year, Beyonce reportedly got Jay-Z a brand new pinky ring with a blue sapphire that cost half a million dollars to celebrate the re-opening of Jay’s NYC night club 40-40.
The Inquisitr reported that other celebrity dads enjoyed quieter Father’s Day celebrations. Hugh Jackman took his children for a stroll, Gavin Rossdale spent time with his lovely wife Gwen Stefani and son Zuma, Gene Simmons flew to San Francisco to watch his daughter Sophie audition on ‘X Factor,’ and Woody Allen got slammed by his son Ronan Farrow for marrying Ronan’s adopted sister Soon-Yi.
Then again, Jay-Z and Beyonce can afford big gifts that keep costing, given the celebrity power couple’s reported $750 million purchasing power.
