31 Unexpected Stars Who Grew Up Insanely Rich

Remember how cute Justin Bieber was when he was a kid?

Once he turned 18, he completely changed.

He started getting in trouble for pissing in a trash can, drag racing through quiet gated neighborhoods, and he got a ton of tattoos.

You see, Justin needed to shed his cutesy image he had so he could transition into a musicians adults could like.

And despite me wanting to hate Bieber, it worked.

Bieber followed in the footsteps of all the rich celebrities in this list (he actually was born to modest means), but the stars in this list were born rich.

And if you knew they were rich kids, you probably wouldn’t like them as much, so they needed to hide the fact they were born rich.
