Justin Bieber Did NOT Buy Private Jet Over Christmas — He Chartered One
Justin Bieber did not buy a private jet for himself over Christmas. He chartered one. The Biebs shared some Instagram pics last week of himself aboard a fancy aircraft, and the language he used led many outlets to believe he’d either purchased the plane outright or had entered into the kind of shared ownership used by many ultra-wealthy flyers.
“New jet for Christmas, and she’s beautiful,” wrote Bieber. “Merry Christmas she’s a beauty.” Indeed. But it turns out not she’s not his beauty. According to TMZ, the Gulfstream G4 carrying Bieber in those pictures is for sale, but was not purchased by the pop star. He chartered it to fly from Ontario to New York. So Bieber has not (yet) become a private jet owner, although he’s still traveling in style. We believe that Bieber does own the cool hat seen in the pictures.
For what it’s worth, Forbes recently estimated that Bieber earned $80 million last year and is worth more than $200 million overall. He’s 20 years old. There may be a private jet purchase in his future. But as of now, he’s just a renter. Someone who does have her own private jet? Taylor Swift. Perhaps she can give Bieber a lift.
