Jay-Z And Beyoncé Reportedly Spent $200,000 On Blue Ivy’s First Birthday


Last week we celebrated the first birthday of baby Blue Ivy, daughter of Jay-Z and Beyoncé… and heir to a throne the likes of which I will never full comprehend! Last summer we learned that Blue’s parents had just purchased a $400,000 summer rental home in the Hamptons, which a lot of folks found to be a bit gratuitous. But I think we can expect plenty more big ballin’ from Blue’s parents, as they reportedly spent about $200,000 on Blue Ivy’s first birthday celebration. Click inside for more!

Complex has the story:

Blue Ivy Carter is one year old, y’all! Parents Beyonce and Jay-Z reportedly spent $200,000 on the celebration, including $80,000 for a custom Barbie covered in diamonds for the infant. Pretty sure this is the beginning of her never, ever being a normal kid.

The real question is, how can they top this for parties that little Blue Ivy will remember? We would totally watch that episode of My Super Sweet Sixteen.


Okay, so maybe this is true. And maybe not. Either way, no blinged out Barbie doll could ever compare to the amazing birthday post we created for baby Blue, lol! Now that’s the gift that keeps on giving.

But seriously. Do you guys think Jay and Bey really spent this much on Blue’s first b-day? On the one hand, it doesn’t seem far-fetched at all. But the diamond-encrusted Barbie doll?! Yeah. NoooooOOOOooooooo. LOL.

    This isn’t funny, it’s disgusting.

    I personally don’t believe they spent that much on her first birthday. But if they did it’s their business. They have worked hard for their money and should be able to spend it any way the want without judgement. They give back to their communities and other charities. It’s not like they were born into money and don’t deserve what they have. People need to get over themselves.

    $200,000 to them is chump change. It’s nothing, probably the equivalent of $100 to the rest of us.

    • Sam

      100$??! Where???

    • Vicky

      Sweetie my point was that this money seems a lot to us, but to them – it’s not. K?

    • Sam

      I was joking Vicky, implying that even 100$ is a hell of a lot for me, that’s all.

    whatever happened to simple 1st birthdays? – and i mean that as a general statement – even my brother & his baby mama went over the top for my nephews 1st. i dont understand why spend all that money on something the child wont ever remember…

    • Krissy

      Good point!

    It seems to me that first birthdays aren’t for the child so much as they are for the parents. A child that little doesn’t care about much, except for covering themself in cake and frosting, and playing with the wrapping paper and bubble wrap. The parents and their guests, on the other hand, will remember the party and they seem to go all out to impress themselves and the invitees. Guests can comment on the decor and enjoy most of the food.

    Ugh… I really hope this isn’t true. Yeah I get that is their money and they can do what they want with it… with that being said they better be prepared for what they are teaching their young daughter. If she is getting diamonds encrusted toys now, think of what she will come to expect when she is older. I have a feeling this little girl will rarely hear the word “NO”

    I used to be disgusted by the amount of money being spent on shiz like this… and while I do agree with comments above about it teaching the wrong values, if they have the money (and we know they do) I rather they spend then horde, so the money slowly trickles down.

    Well i can’t hate, but dang…. I think it’s cruel… she woulda been much happier with a dollar store barbie than with an 80K diamond encrusted barbie she can’t touch.

  • pufinstuf

    If you don’t want them throwing money around, don’t buy their music. Otherwise, you gave them the cash, and if they want to spend your hard earned money on diamond encrusted Barbies, too damned bad.

  • Linnea

    It’s kind of ridicules to spend that much money on a birthday that some spoiled brat doesn’t even gonna remember..

  • aubrey

    Why is the doll covered in diamonds? Is it supposed to be a Bella Cullen Barbie?
