As part of the mass resignation taking place in UK, Boris Johnson just resigned from his position as the country’s prime minister under immense pressure from lawmakers in his own party. During his tumultuous three years, Johnson has popped up all over the media due to being involved in multiple controversies. While being a country’s PM or president might be quite lucrative , there are limits imposed on these heads to make sure they aren’t playing with the public’s money. Yet, according to findings, Johnson seems to have had thrown some of that caution to the wind during his time as PM. Because of his extravagant spending habits, Johnson has been subjected to his fair share of public outrage. We take a look at his net worth, the houses he owned before and during his time in politics, and his controversial luxury splurges. His net worth: US$2 million During his time as prime minister, Johnson was estimated to have a salary of US$188,000 (£157,300) as of 2022, according to the BBC. But Johnson also owned a couple of properties (homes in Oxfordshire, London and Somerset) where he earned a total extra rental income of US$12,000 a year. He also generates income from his books, which includes one about Winston Churchill and another political novel. BBC stated that, according to the most recent register of interests, his book and publisher payments reached around US$12,400 between October 2020 to October 2021. In 2022, Celebrity Net Worth predicts his net worth to be around the US$2 million mark. Who is the richest woman in the world right now? (No, it’s not Kim K) Property investment: his Oxfordshire home Back in the day, while he was still working as an editor of The Spectator , Johnson bought a Grade II-listed Oxfordshire home for an estimated US$768,000 in 2003. The upscale country house dubbed “The Old Farm House” is a historic four-bedroom family home complete with a swimming pool, a tennis court and a separate annex that can be used as an office, stated Mansion Global.

The country house is now estimated to have a value of US$1.4 million. His London town house When Johnson was married to his now ex-wife Marina Wheeler, he bought a huge Islington town house. British media reported that it is a Grade II-listed building and was sold in 2019 for US$480,000 below the valuation of US$4.5 million.

Spending controversies: the lavish flat refurbishment Johnson made headlines – and subsequently some negative feedback – when he refurbished his private flat on Downing Street, which he shared with his wife Carrie, for a staggering US$240,000, as per The Independent . This raised questions since the prime minister only receives an annual allowance of US$36,000 from taxpayers to spend on his home. Leaked £200,000 invoice reveals Boris Johnson’s No 10 flat renovation included £30,000 Painting & Decorating, £15,000 for two sofas, £7,000 rug, £3,675 trolley, £500 table cloth and £2,260 worth of gold wallpaper. https://t.co/k4dH1s5ahv — JmRoyle #YNWA #BLM #GTTO #LFC (@MyArrse) July 7, 2022 According to the BBC, the refurbishment was initially paid for by the Cabinet Office, but US$62,000 was given to the Conservative Party by Lord Brownlow, a wealthy donor, to cover the bills. But after the refurbishment bills stacked up, Johnson ended up paying the entire amount. Inside Elon Musk and Donald Trump’s (very) complicated relationship The Independent stated that the Conservative Party broke electoral laws by using funds gifted by Lord Brownlow to cover the flat styling costs without the money being properly established. The Conservative Party was fined US$21,000 after the Electoral Commission found it had failed to transparently declare all of Lord Brownlow’s donations towards the renovation, as per the BBC. Expensive art After the controversial flat refurbishment, Johnson added more fuel to the fire when he revealed that almost US$120,000 was spent on two paintings he bought for 10 Downing Street, as per British media. Reports stated that the accounts from the Government’s Art Collection fund, which is supported by taxpayers’ money, show that Downing Street spent US$84,000 on a painting by Irish artist Cathy Wilkes. Another purchase of US$22,500 was said to have been spent on a set of four black and white photographs by Irish artist Willie Doherty. The artworks were said to have been bought in honour of the century that has passed since the establishment of Northern Ireland. But what irked everyone wasn’t the purchases themselves, but that the PM spent this amount soon after the government cut US$24-a-week from universal credit and introduced a real-terms pay cut for teachers and police officers. "we can't help everyone because it's too expensive, so let's only help ourselves to a £2200 pay rise, our friends to contracts worth £3.6bn, and boris johnson to £100,000 for some new art in his house" https://t.co/ondqjaCjuk — moth 🏴☠️ (@rottnblossom) March 19, 2022 Downing Street never clarified how much of the money for the artwork came from the public purse and how much was offered by donors.

Here’s how 5 other first children did it Takeaway and gourmet food While celebs are known to spend on fine dining, Johnson reportedly took it a little too far when he spent a hefty US$32,000 on gourmet food and drinks in eight months, reports The London Economic. The public was annoyed, since this incident happened after Number 10 insisted that only a one per cent pay rise would be given to NHS Covid-19 heroes since Johnson and the party insisted that it was all that was “affordable”, reported British media.

But the prime minister’s deputy spokesman said that the cost of food for personal consumption is entirely met by the Johnson. The New Year’s trip For New Year’s in 2020, the prime minister and his wife Carrie were reported to have gone on a luxurious ten-day trip to Mustique that was worth more than US$18,000. According to Forbes , they spent New Year’s Eve in a villa on a private island in St Vincent and the Grenadines archipelago. The lavish villa is said to be an expensive property listed for a jaw-dropping US$42,000 a week on Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

But when British media reported that Ross’ spokesman said the declaration was a “mistake” and the entrepreneur “did not pay any money whatsoever”, it raised many questions. However, Johnson was later cleared of charges and was proven not guilty of the breach. Want more stories like this? Follow STYLE on Facebook , Instagram , YouTube and Twitter .
