20 Weird Billionaires You Have To See To Believe

“The Queen of Mean”: Leona Helmsley


Notoriously out of touch with the non-wealthy, Leona Helmsley was a real estate tycoon who eventually went to jail because she was convicted of federal income tax evasion.

She once stated, “We don’t pay taxes, only the little people pay taxes.” But just how rich was Leona? To put things in perspective, she left $12 million to her Maltese, named Trouble. So yeah, that’s a warm fuzzy thought; there are dogs wealthier than us out there. As we’ve seen so far from the people on this list, when you have a ton of money, anything is possible. Giving millions to a Maltese dog sounds like a page out of the crazy book but billionaires are wired differently that’s for sure.
