Beyonce And Jay-Z Spend $80,000 On A Diamond-Encrusted Barbie Doll For Blue Ivy’s 1st Birthday
Beyoncé and hubby Jay-Z splashed out $80,000 on a diamond-encrusted Barbie for their daughter’s first birthday. The customized doll for little Blue Ivy includes 160 of the gems, plus white gold jewelry. The mega-rich singers also threw a lavish princess-themed party for close family and pals to mark her special day. The bash in New York included $96,000 of white and pink roses as decorations and a cake costing $2,000.
Another $33,000 went on accessories and toys for Blue Ivy’s young guests, including jewellery sets, princess costumes and playhouses. Adults were given elaborate goodie bags including concert tickets and personalised gold pens with Blue Ivy and each guest’s name engraved on them.
Destiny’s Child star Beyoncé, 31, and rapper Jay-Z, 43, were declared the world’s highest-paid celeb couple last year after raking in $78million in 12 months. They spent weeks planning the celebrations for their daughter, who turned one last Monday. A source said: “Nothing’s been too big or expensive for their little princess. They wanted her first birthday to set the tone for the rest of her life. “They work hard for their money and the first thing they want to spend it on is their baby girl.
