Most Americans, and young people in particular, waste their money on food. But with seven albums and a Grammy win under his belt, pop star Justin Bieber is worth approximately $225 million, so he can afford to waste his money in more exciting ways.
While the singer has used his fortune to purchase his fair share of houses and cars, he's also spent a chunk of it bailing himself out of trouble.
According to an upcoming episode of CNBC's "The Filthy Rich Guide," which takes an in-depth look at Bieber's run-ins with the law, the pop star has paid a "swagger tax" of at least $141,600 to deal with the costly consequences of his mistakes.

In 2013, Bieber's pet capuchin monkey, Mally, was seized by the German government when the singer attempted to bring him into the country without the correct paperwork during a tour.
Bieber was forced to leave the monkey behind and ended up paying $10,700 in fines and costs for care at the local animal shelter. Mally was later moved to Serengeti Park in northern Germany, where he found a new home with a family of other capuchins.
In 2014, Bieber was accused of egging a neighbor's house. The neighbor pressed charges, and the star was forced to pay $80,900 in restitution. The over $20,000 worth of damage could have been charged as a felony, but Bieber pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor to avoid letting the situation escalate, the L.A. Times reports.
His neighbor later demanded $1 million for pain and suffering, emotional distress and property damage. In addition to the egging incident, the neighbor alleged that Bieber repeatedly threatened and harassed him.
As part of a plea deal to settle the case, the singer donated $50,000 to a youth charity, "Our Kids." According to CNN, the deal mandated that Bieber complete 12 hours of anger management counseling and attend a program that teaches about the impact of drunken driving on victims, in addition to making the donation.
