There’s nothing quite ridiculous like a celeb shamelessly showing off their bling on social media. At times we wonder if they think we ordinary people need to be reminded of just how rich the A-listers are — and how we’ll never be able to afford their lifestyles. Obviously, many celebs feel this is true as they flaunt their wealth on social media from time to time.
Let's take a look back at 15 times celebrities flaunted their riches on IG and at least one instance where it backfired.
1. Kourtney Kardashian
Uh, OK, Kourtney, that's cool. We all know you've got some huge pile of bucks. No need to post a pic of your massive Mercedes + your cute kids.
Queen Bey posted a seriously huge collection of Lorraine Schwartz rings for her followers to salivate over on Instagram.
3. Kim Kardashian
The photo that sparked tons of backlash. Just three days after she posted this photo, Kim was robbed at her hotel in Paris—and many said she shouldn’t have displayed her diamonds so much on IG.
4. Ciara And Russell Wilson
Even though they captioned this photo: “The Greatest Blessing of All. Forever Grateful. #BabyWilsonOnTheWay,” what they really meant was, “Hey guys, check out the bling on Ciara’s finger!”
5. Khloé Kardashian And Tristan Thompson
Less than a month after Kim Kardashian was robbed in Paris, Khloe posted this his-and-her diamond pic with her new boo. Hmm.
Nothing like a gold AK-47 grill—at least, that's what RiRi thinks. “Up watching Cocaine Cowboyz #KillinDeseHeauxz #phuckyogrill #ilickthegunwhenimdonecuziknowthatrevengeissweet,” she posted. SMH!
7. Kendall Jenner
“Diamonds are forever,” Jenner captioned this shot. We see what you did there, Kendall.
8. Kylie Jenner And PartyNextDoor
PND didn't even try to mince his words here: “Diamond battles with @kyliejenner ,” he captioned the photo. Indeed.
9. Kylie Jenner
The KarJenners never cease to amaze. Kylie posted this photo of her bling on Instagram just like her older sister, Kim Kardashian.
Really, only one emoji sums up this post: Drake showed off a $120,000, 40-carat OVO owl chain created for him by Ben Baller on Instagram, sparkling with the grandeur of way too many diamonds (and pink sapphires). Wow.
11. Drake (and J.Lo)
“Sure I’ll hold your diamond encrusted fitted while you catch this Vegas body #Jenny,” Drake posted. Was this hat encrusted in real diamonds? We are not sure, but we’ll keep asking the deep question.
12. Drake And J.Lo
One more, just to point out that J.Lo wore a huge diamond ring on her ring finger in this pic. Just sayin’.
13. Blac Chyna
Remember that time Chyna shared the snap of her engagement ring (designed by Ben Baller) from Rob Kardashian glittering as much as it could?.
14. Amber Rose
Amber Rose hit up Eric the Jeweler to obtain a pair of diamond earrings—1.5 carats each—for a grand total of $20,000. The usual.
15. Kris Jenner
We will round things out here, because how could we not— The Momager, Kris Jenner posted a pic of her new toilet with the following caption: “I love my new @TOTOUSA NEOREST 750H #HighTechToilet.” Looks like this guy costs a cool $10,000—yep, that’s right, 10 grand for a toilet—so, yeah, this really does count as flaunting one’s wealth.
