I agree. Lots of people who are broke still managed to buy (or just got hold of) something expensive.
I would bet my precious ass that Mayweather, in the near future, will showcase something expensive that he bought even when he's broke.
It's called a "Line of Credit". Most famous people have them at various places like jewelry stores, car dealerships, clothing stores, etc. They can come in there because the person knows that they'll eventually get their money, plus the free advertising when people see the car/jewels/clothing, and find out where it was bought from.
Everyone wants to ball like the stars.
