Unfortunately, the two split in 2000.

What do you buy the man who has everything? Angela Jolie got her man Brad Pitt a 100-year-old Olive tree for their French Chateau at a price tag of $18,500 for Valentine’s Day in 2010.
T.I. and Tiny
In 2012 rapper T.I. splurged on Gucci, Prada and other expensive gifts for his Valentine, Tiny. He got all the way in his romance bag for his wife, setting up an intimate dinner and hiring a musician to serenade Tiny with love ballads. In a picture posted to Instagram, Tiny poses next to red roses taller than her that were flown out to their Atlanta home. Underneath all those fiery rap lyrics is a hopeless romantic, we love it!.
Russell Brand and Katy Perry
In 2011, Katy Perry purchased then-husband Russel Brand a superior Bentley Brookland painted lilac. What a gift! Katy, will you be our Valentine? Ballin’!
Reggie Bush and Kim
What is an even better gift to give your Valentine’s boo that has everything other than an Olive tree? Stacks of cash! On Valentine’s day circa 2009, Kim Kardashian and then-boyfriend Reggie Bush spent Valentine’s Day in a romantic restaurant where Kim was photographed smiling counting through a large stack of 100 dollar bills. Stacks for Valentine’s Day? We’ll take it. Flowers are nice, but they don’t pay the bills…
Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez
Even as a teen, Justin Bieber knew how to treat a lady on Valentine’s Day. Justin reportedly gave his on-again off-again girlfriend, Selena Gomez. $2000 worth of a flower shop’s entire inventory of tulips, roses and daisies. Maybe he couldn’t remember what Selena’s favorite flower was? But the best way to solve all that is to buy ’em all!
Jay Z and Beyoncé
In 2009, Jay Z bought his wife Beyoncé a platinum cell phone worth $24k for Valentine’s Day. This is an appropriate gift for Queen Bey since everything she touches turns platinum anyway! This year, Jay Z decided he could continue to lace his wife with platinum and gold on Valentine’s day, but what truly matters is the thought put into it. He splurged on a $2,300 Tacori bracelet that is said to represent the couples union, the bracelet also comes with a special lock that only one key can unlock.
Swizz Beatz and Alicia Keys
Swizz Beatz posted an Instagram photo on Valentine’s Day of hand-painted art he was creating for his wife Alicia Keys. You can’t put a price on manual labor for the one you love, especially on Valentine’s Day.
Tyga and Blac Chyna
Last year Tyga took Blac Chyna, the mother of his adorable son, to a Clippers vs. Laker’s game where the couple watched the action from courtside seating. Romantic? Not so much, but if she loves basketball, I’m sure it was fabulous. Not only that, but floor seats during a high-profile game like Lakers VS Clippers had to have cost a pretty penny.
Daniel “Boobie” Gibson and Keyshia Cole
Before things started getting messy between these two in public on social media, Keyshia Cole’s hubby gifted her with a brand new black and red Chevy Camaro for Valentine’s Day in 2011. A brand new car is a great way to celebrate any and everything.
Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey’s hubby Nick Cannon treated his wife to a simple but extremely romantic V-day night in 2012. He gifted her with more than a dozen red and pink heart shaped balloons, ran a beautiful candle lit jacuzzi bath for her, and took his Valentine on a carriage ride around NYC in 2012.
Lil Wayne and Toya
In 2006, Young Money rapper and founder Lil Wayne got married to his high school sweetheart, Toya Wright, on Valentine’s Day. The couple have since gone their separate ways, but remain close because of their daughter, Reginae. Toya Wright wed again, this time to Mickey “Memphitz” Wright in 2011.
Chad Johnson and Evelyn Lozada
On the day of love in 2011, Chad Johnson, then Ochocinco, surprised his then-fiancée Evelyn Lozada with a yacht ride from Miami to the Bahamas. The yacht was decked out with roses and gifts for the special lady. Chad even had a live violinist serenade Evelyn at the dock. Sweet.
Future and Ciara
Last Valentine’s Day, Ciara posted a photo to her Instagram with the caption “Let’s Toast 2 Love!!” On a granite counter sat empty Cartier boxes courtesy of her Valentine’s Day boo and future husband, Future. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend–hell, all jewelry is.
