Aside from being filthy rich, these billionaires all have one thing in common: they’re just a little weird. Perhaps you could call them quirky or charming—but whatever the case, we’re taking notes. Check out this list which uncovers some of the world’s strangest, wealthiest characters; perhaps, teaching us that weirdness just might pay off.
The Plastic Surgery Queen: Jocelyn Wildenstein
Socialite or gold digger? Nobody really knows. But one thing is for sure—Jocelyn Wildenstein has certainly been labeled both. She is famous for two things: billionaire businessman ex-husband, Alex Wildenstein, and plastic surgery. Jocelyn apparently had extensive cosmetic procedures done to please her then-husband, who loved big cats. But after she found him with a 19-year-old Russian model in the couple’s New York home, she soon filed for divorce.
Jocelyn was awarded the $2.5 billion along with alimony payments of $100 million each year for the next 13 years. Although the judge specifically stipulated she was forbidden to spend any alimony money on plastic surgery, that didn’t stop Jocelyn from undergoing numerous procedures. Today, the socialite has a very unnatural appearance and is rumored to have spent $4 million on plastic surgery.
