Tyra Banks is so frugal, she was once told to 'spend some damn money' - INSIDER: Businesswoman, supermodel, author, and creator of "America's Next Top Model," Tyra Banks, is worth an estimated $90 million.
But despite the fortune she has amassed through her modeling, TV work and business pursuits, Banks has always been more of a saver than a spender, she revealed in an interview with MONEY.
"I was always more interested in experiences over things," she told the magazine. "Things didn't make me happy. I saved, saved, saved. But I saved to a fault. About 15 years ago, my accountants pulled me aside, and they were like 'Tyra. You're not spending money. Nothing. You're just giving it away to the government. You need to spend some damn money!'"
