Prince Jefri Bolkiah, the playboy brother of the Sultan of Brunei, led an exorbitantly lavish lifestyle until his assets were frozen and many of his positions sold off.

In fact, he "has probably gone through more cash than any other human being on earth," according to an extensive story chronicling the prince and his ongoing $23 million legal battle with his former lawyers in the July issue of Vanity Fair.
At one point, he was reportedly spending $50 million a month.

Prince Jefri's fairy tale life came crashing down after authorities discovered that Jefri had personally blown through $14.8 billion from a government oil investment fund he was purportedly overseeing.

And he remains embroiled in a legal battle with his former attorneys.

He owned a collection of 2,300 cars
He once paid $1.5 million for a badminton coach
He bought a $7 million rug woven of gold thread and embroidered with jewels
He paid $17 million for Michael Jackson to perform at his 50th birthday
At one point he was forced to surrender five diamonds, worth $200 million, to the Brunei Investment Agency

Not your money...so stop counting it. If all you had was 100$ and you spend it i am sure no one would care...well that 100$ for some was 14$ bil for him.

if I had his money I would have basked in pr0n women and bikes (don't care much about cars) but would have gotten a yacht and more women ...

think about the movies I could have made and sold to make more money to get more women ... yes I am addicted to pr0n too, have less money and I wish I was this guy ...

Nipple 1 and Nipple 2 ... that was awesome

What a selfish self-centred piece of sheet. If I had that kind of money I would build a chain of free hospitals around the world.

I think you would find $14 billion isn't as much as you think it is.
