Being a famous celebrity equates to being successful financially. Elton John and John Lennon are no exception as they amassed millions of dollars throughout their careers. However, having a massive amount of money could also mean more chances to spend it excessively.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the “Your Song” hitmaker has an estimated net worth of a whopping $550 million as of 2023.
Despite having almost everything he wants, being a rich personality in the limelight has negative effects as John previously became dependent on alcohol and drugs. Fortunately, he made a choice to change himself for the better.
“I have a wonderful life now, but I had to change it. I had to change my life really drastically, otherwise I wouldn’t be sitting here,” he said in an interview with Variety.
The Guardian previously reported that Elton John was also involved in a legal case against an accounting company called PriceWaterhouseCoopers and John Reid Enterprises Limited.
During the hearing, fans were given an insight into how the singer excessively spends his fortune, as he was asked if it’s possible for him to spend over $355,000 worth of flowers, to which he responded, “Yes, I like flowers.” (via Grunge)
