Kim Kardashian Buys Luxury Car for Kanye: Other Stars to Give Cars as Gifts

Yahoo Contributor Network

If anyone is questioning just how serious the romance is getting between Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, they should look no further than the lavish new gift that the reality star gave her boyfriend for his 35th birthday. KK apparently spent $750,000 on a rare Lamborghini for the outspoken rapper. Since Kanye was performing in Ireland, the two weren't able to celebrate his birthday together. However, a gift like that certainly sends a message that this relationship is the real deal. KK isn't the first celebrity to reward another famous person with a brand new car. Here are some other stars that gave away cars as gifts.

Sean "Diddy" Combs

Most of us would love to get a used car for our 16th birthday. But if you're Justin Bieber, an expensive Lamborghini from rap kingpin Sean "Diddy" Combs will do nicely. According to the singer, Diddy had promised to let him have the $200,000 luxury car when he turned 16. It looks like he lived up to that promise because the teen idol was seen behind the wheel shortly after picking up his license in 2010.


The pop star gave husband Jay-Z a ridiculously expensive car for his birthday in 2010. The beautiful singer dropped nearly $2 million to buy the rapper a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport. The car was the fastest in the world at the time and made a nice addition to his extensive auto collection. Since the couple welcomed daughter Blue Ivy earlier in 2012, it looks like speedy car will remain for show purposes only.

Adam Sandler

The "Saturday Night Live" alum certainly doesn't spare anything when it comes to honoring his friends. While filming the 2010 comedy "Grown Ups" with buddies Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, and Rob Schneider, the actor decided to surprise each of them with a Maserati. In total, the generous star spent nearly $800,000 on luxury cars for his pals. It's safe to say that all four actors were more than appreciative of the gifts. They will all join Sandler for a sequel set to come out in 2013.
