Among the lavish, opulent, and ridiculously expensive things the two sisters spent their money on, are Petra’s £12 million wedding and Tamara’s £1 million crystal bathtub. They spent the entirety of their trust in less than ten years.

Here is a running tab of some of their latest expenditures:

Tamara’s Shoe Collection: $175,000
Tamara’s Handbag Collection: $110,000
Tamara’s Crystal Bath Tub: $1,500,000

Black Eyed Peas’ performance fee: $2,300,000

Last January, Bernie Ecclestone was quoted as saying:

"I’m very proud of them. They’re good girls. They’re not stupid when it comes to money. They are very level-headed and that is something I and their mother insisted on."

Do you think Bernie misjudged the intelligence of his daughters?
