YOUTUBER and rapper KSI leads a lifestyle to envy.
The 26 year old Watford-born internet personality with 20.5m subscribers is gearing up to fight Logan Paul at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday evening.
The exhibition fight is a rematch that follows a tussle that took place at the Manchester Arena last year, which ended in a draw.
Both are expected to draw huge numbers of viewers online to the DAZN streaming service, who have rights to the bout.
And that means KSI, believed to be worth around £.5m, can expect a nice purse. And what’s he expected to splash the cash on?
Judging by his car collection and his choice in jewellery, something expensive!
Having a successful YouTube channel pays for KSI.
And he drives a fleet of cars that wouldn’t look out of place in a Premier League footballer’s garage.
Back in April, he shared an image of his new Porsche Boxster that carries a price tag starting at around £65k.
Just to make sure you know who is behind-the-wheel, he added a personalised licence plate which reads “K51 FLY”.
But that’s certainly not the most impressive motor he’s been seen with.
That award goes to his £280k Lamborghini Aventador, which he’s taken to celebrity customiser Yiannimize to wrap for him.
And KSI is clearly a fan of sci-fi film Tron because he’s had his supercar wrapped twice with Tron-inspired lines.
First, it was red. Then, he changed it to purple with orange lines.
Rumours circulated that KSI had crashed the Lambo, and moved onto another car.
And they didn’t subside when he showed off a £60k Porsche Cayenne in a series of SnapChat stories.
The Cayenne is the more luxurious of Porsche’s SUVs and faster boasting a .0L Turbo V6 engine.
That means his car collection is worth around £400k.
But that number might go up should he add a Rolls-Royce to his collection. He’s been seen in LA countless times driving one.
If you want to stand out from the crowd on YouTube, you’ll invest in extravagant diamond pieces.
And KSI isn’t one to be shy.
That’s why earlier this year he was happy to share with his fans a new edition to his jewellery collection – a £400k diamond necklace.
But this wasn’t just any old necklace. No, custom-designed it paid tribute to Beerus – the anti-hero famous from the Japanese Dragon Ball Z series.
It has around ,000 stones gems like sapphires, yellow diamonds, and is 18 carat gold.
Better still, it took over 550 hours of craftsmanship to make.
Being so valuable, KSI has admitted that he doesn’t keep it at home and has the item locked up in a safe.
However, that didn’t stop pranksters pretending that they had stolen the chain and were selling it on eBay for a paltry sum.
KSI got wind of it, sharing the link on Twitter writing: “Yo wtf is this?”
The Londoner also has a £150k Rolex watch covered in diamonds from the same jeweller, Pragnell.
He revealed that he decided to buy the timepiece as a present to himself for having a “phenomenal” 2018.
His only demand was that he wanted to be “iced out and covered in diamonds.” That’ll certainly do it.
£8k ON TRAINERS IN ONE DAY
Last year, after making a mint from his first fight with Logan Paul, KSI went to LA to spend big on trainers.
He dropped into trendy store Flight Club, and bought several pairs for a total of £8k.
The best being a pair of Off-White Nike Air Vapor Max’s that cost almost £2k, the most surreal being the Nike Kyrie Lucky Charms sneakers that shared the colours of the popular cereal with Irish connotations.
In fact, he joked on a YouTube video that he had never seen Lucky Charms before until he’d bought those trainers.
KSI also splashed his cash on Yeezy Boost 350 trainers, and Air Jordan Air Retro’s.
HIS PRIVATE LIFE IS PERSONAL
When it comes to girlfriends, KSI prefers to keep them out of the limelight.
However, we do know who his teen girlfriend was.
It was gorgeous Seana Cuthbert from Newcastle has her own YouTube channel with a modest 152,000 subscribers.
She also gained 180k followers on Instagram and has 129k on Twitter.
But Seana split up with KSI in 2014 after a two-year romance, and she explained why on her channel.
“We were very young when we first met. I met JJ (KSI) when I was 17, he lived in London, I lived in Newcastle so it was long distance.
“He was also really busy with his YouTube, he didn’t have time for a relationship and he wanted to go out and enjoy himself. I have moved on, he’s moved on.”
He then dated Instagram model Lois Sharpe, but they split after KSI revealed: “We just wanted different things.”
He added: “It’s hard, I guess, for people to handle me.”
