Strange and expensive celeb purchases

Cheapism Logo By Jeff Rindskopf of Cheapism | Slide 2 of 32: Mark Cuban, "Shark Tank" star and owner of the Dallas Mavericks, has reportedly plunked down a fat wad of cash to buy the town of Mustang, Texas. Mustang, which covers 77 acres, is home to 21 people and not a whole lot else. No word on what Cuban paid, but $2 million was the reported asking price. In fact, Cuban's purchase may have been a (very, very expensive) favor for a friend who needed to unload the town. "I don't know what, if anything, I'll do with it," he told the Dallas Morning News. Related: The Most Wasteful Purchases by 25 Celebrities Who Went Broke
