Jay-Z Spends Over A Quarter-Million Dollars On Spending Spree

Jay-Z spent almost $350,000 at the Hermes store on the Upper East Side of Manhattan on Christmas Eve. Some last minute shopping for Beyonce perhaps?

“Jay was in a private room of Hermes doing last-minute shopping,” a witness said. “He had a guard standing watch outside. He spent $350,000 on Birkin bags, among other things.” What a lucky wife he has (pictured together on their summer vacation in St. Tropez on Aug. 25).

He was so busy shopping he missed his lunch at UES hot spot Nello’s and just had his food delivered to the store!

Then again, the rap mogul will earn a cool $1 million for playing the opening of the Cosmopolitan Hotel on New Year’s Eve. A few hundred grand’s just small change really!
