14 Huge Celebrities Who Were Rich Way Before they Became Famous
Between the private jets, lavish vacations, designer clothes, and million-dollar mansions, there are a lot of reasons to be jealous of celebrities’ unrealistic lifestyles. But hey; jealousy never looked good on anyone. Most stars worked very hard to get to the place that are are today. We say ‘most,’ however, because some celebs were living the life of luxury WAY before becoming known in Hollywood.
That’s right. Stars like Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift may be making astronomical amounts of money for themselves now, but they understood what it felt like to be wealthy way before ever receiving a six-figure check. And they’re not the only ones. Click through the gallery below to see all the stars who were born to rich families!
Tay loves to tell the story of how she grew up on a Christmas tree farm in Pennsylvania, a tale that's 100 percent true, but not totally complete. Scott Swift, Taylor's father, worked at Merrill Lynch as a financial adviser and her mom, Andrea, was a marketing executive. The Swift family apparently owned several horses on said farm, some of which can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. When the "Bad Blood" singer was about to be signed to current record label Big Machine, her father invested a pretty penny to help the company get up an running, too.
