Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James may be a billionaire, but he’s also apparently quite cheap.

James made waves this week when he talked about losing his blue verified checkmark on Twitter. James said he refuses to pay the $8 or $11 per month in order to keep the checkmark as part of Twitter’s new policy.

“Welp guess my blue (check) will be gone soon cause if you know me I ain’t paying the (8),” James wrote.

James’ refusal to spend frivolously doesn’t begin or end there. Shortly after he revealed that he was unwilling to spend the $8 per month, Chris Fedor of The Plain Dealer divulged that James has long been a cheapskate.

Back when he played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, James apparently subjected his teammates to audio commercials because he refused to pay for Pandora’s commercial-free service.

But being frugal is not something James has ever shied away from. In fact, he wears it like a badge of honor.

“No. I’m not (using my phone unless it’s on WiFi). I’m not turning on data roaming. I’m not buying no apps. I still got Pandora with commercials,” James said in 2017, via CBS Sports .

James may be unwilling to pay for his blue checkmark or commercial-free music, but he didn’t skimp out in other areas. For example, he owns three Ferraris, three Mercedes vehicles, one Porsche, a Bentley, and a Rolls-Royce, among others.

James also owns a $36.8 million mansion in Beverly Hills.
