Next on the list, is a Maltese Terrier named Trouble. He was made filthy rich in 2007 from Leona Helmsley, who was the wife of a New York City Hotel mogul, Harry Helmsley. It turns out that she left 2 of her grandchildren out of her will but didn’t forget her precious trouble. This poor little doggy had the amount of his inheritance slashed from $12 million down to 1.6 million after her relatives contested her will.

You may be surprised to know that a chicken named Gigoo belongs on this list. Gigoo is worth $10 million. She earned her fortune from the wife of publishing giant Miles Blackwell. Life just isn’t fair, is it? Some chickens end up at KFC and this one is placed upon a golden pedestal.

Drew Barrymore’s pet dog Flossie also made the list. A Yellow Labrador named Flossie had modest beginnings. Barrymore rescued her from a flea market. What is so ironic is that the dog rescued her and her then husband Tom Green from a fire. As a reward for what she did, Barrymore bought Flossie a $3 million mansion in the heart of Beverly Hills.

  If you are a chimpanzee, it doesn’t hurt to be loved by the king of pop. Michael Jackson’s chimpanzee, Bubbles was left $2 million after he passed away. Jackson was so close to Bubbles that he referred to him as his first son. Reportedly, Bubbles slept in his own baby crib in Jackson’s room. He let Bubbles eat at the dining room table with him and the two even shared a toilet.
