Everybody’s favorite Candian singer, Justin Bieber, is now one of the highest-paid celebrities in the world. In fact, his net worth is already up to $285 million and it is still growing.

For the making of the critically acclaimed film, Gravity, George had made an excessive request. He required a custom-made beach hut and basketball court installed near his trailer on-set.
