7) David and Victoria Beckham

She bought Tony the speedboat. The singer Simpson presented the boat for Romo’s 28th birthday.
But the footballer’s present for Jessica’s 29th birthday was not so wonderful. He broke up with the girl the night before her birthday. The reason was that Jessica took too much of his attention and he couldn’t focus on his career.
9) Robert Pattison
Price of the Gift: $46, 000
Robert Pattison and Kristen Stewart relationship was complicated too. The couple started dating in June 2009 and partied their ways in May, 2013. Kirsten and Robert, who were co-stars in numerous projects, including Twilight saga and Vampire Diaries, were considered as one of the best couples in Hollywood. Later Kirsten told, that their love “turned into a product” and people, who wanted to see them together, actually ruined their relationship.
In any case, these two actors had really great time together and exchanged special gifts. On her 23rd birthday romantic Pattison gave Kristen Bentley fountain pen. The pen was made of yellow gold and cost $46, 000. If the present seems unusual to you, you should know, that K-Stew has a great pen collection at home and likes elegant stylish pens very much. Robert chose another – expensive and luxurious – pen for her collection and engraved it with the words “From R”.
By the way, Pattison was a generous and love-drunk guy during his time with Kristen. That very year he gave her an antique bracelet and asked to move in together,
The reason of Stewart-Pattison separation was her cheating. The actress was rumored to start an affair with a film director Rupert Sanders. Probably, great presents looked unconvincing for her.
10) Joe DiMaggio
Price of the Gift: Unspecified
It is hard to calculate the price of the present, which a basketball player Joe DiMaggio gave to his wife, an actress and sex symbol Marilyn Monroe.
Their marriage lasted during 9 months only, but his love lasted forever. The friends of the couple tell, Joe was madly in love with Monroe, and each his gesture showed, how careful he was about her. DiMaggio was a regular at New York flower shop and bought roses for $200 almost every day during their marriage.
When he heard about Monroe’s death, DiMaggio tried his best to arrange the funeral for his ex-love. He gave the late actress the huge heart, made of flowers.
After her death he visited Marilyn’s grave almost every week and brought the bouquet of roses with him. Monroe got flowers from her ex-husband during 20 years after her death every single week. It is hard to calculate, what amount the athlete spent on roses for Marilyn, but no doubt, it was enormous. Who else could remain faithful to a woman after their divorce and her early death?
As you can see, celebs can love too – and their love is sometimes tragic. Famous men and women meet each other, give special presents, get married – and get divorced. The price of each present in this list is incredibly high – and not just because of the pile of dollars, which was paid for it. But because of a string of private emotions each person invested into the gift.
