Sometimes, I read about the lives of celebrities and wonder if I would just throw my money away just because I had it.

Fine baseball player Matt Kemp has decided he wants to go all out for his new Los Angeles digs. The mansion he rented, formerly owned by Tamar Braxton and hubby Vincent Herbert, has 5 bedrooms, 7.5 bathrooms, a movie theater, elevator, pool and spa. If you recall on the Tamar & Vince show, the couple had a very hard time renovating and redecorating the place. They sold it to realtor Carlton Gebbia for $3 million more than they paid for it.

Kemp has decided to rent it from Gebbia at a whopping $30,000 per month. He signed a one year lease so yes, that means he will be spending $360,000 in rent for one year (and it’s likely to be a little more than that as TMZ is reporting the rent is a little over $30k).

I’m sorry…what?? Matt Kemp has been a member of the Dodgers since 2006 so first of all, why doesn’t he just buy a home or condo in Los Angeles. Second, if he doesn’t want to own, aren’t there places that go for a bit cheaper?  I mean, that’s a lot of money for one house.

You know what? Who am I to count someone’s pockets? I guess it’s easier for someone without those kinds of dollars (and believe me, Kemp is a very wealthy man) to think about how they could be spent in a better, more affordable way.

But, if he’s ever looking for someone to help him figure his way out through life, he can find me at…nevermind, I’ll keep that to myself!

We love you Matt, frivolous spending and all!

    i know that is his money and he can do with it whatever he wants. i just hope he is being wise and smart with it. I hope he does not squander it or spending it on paying for multiple children with multiple different women. He may be fine and he is cute. If he isn’t smart or connecting himself with the right people, he is working on his way in making the list of owing back taxes, back child support or bankrupcy.

    Renting is extremely common among athletes.
    Just because they play in a certain city doesn’t mean they want to live in that city. Many athletes don’t live in the actual city they play in.
    Two, they could be traded, and then what? Selling a house in this market isn’t easy.
    Three, the dude is one of the highest paid players in baseball….and wipes his behind with 30K a month.

    A lot of professional athletes are not smart, so this doesn’t surprise me

    He sure has some purty eyes man.
    But I find that kinda wasteful. Why rent a mansion when you can just buy
    a house for the same price? Guess when you’re loaded, you can waste
    your money on bs.
