Floyd Mayweather has forked out a fortune on a five-foot-long sculpture of a $100 bill folded into a paper plane.

The boxing champ is continuing to live it up in Miami, attending a private birthday bash thrown for him by “Real Housewives of Miami” star Lisa Hochstein and husband Lenny at their Star Island mansion.

A source said Mayweather was given a tour of the property and a viewing of all the art the couple have collected — and he fell for a piece titled “Pilot Benjamin” by artist Paul Rousso.

The source said, “Floyd did end up purchasing a work that he saw displayed in the lounge room — a five-foot-long sculpture of a hundred-dollar bill folded into a paper plane made by artist Paul Rousso, which was symbolic for Mayweather’s own money plane private jet.

“Avant Gallery’s owner Dmitry Prut was on hand at the function to broker the art deal for an unspecified amount.”

The piece is believed to be part of a series of sculptures from crumpled-up bills titled “American Currency”.

While it is not known how much Mayweather paid for “Pilot Benjamin,” other pieces in the collection have been priced between $10,000 to $15,000, which is probably less than the legend spends on a single night of partying.

This was just another stop on Mayweather’s never-ending 44th birthday celebration — dubbed “The Floyd Mayweather Birthday Experience.”

Page Six reported the champ had a party in Fort Lauderdale and another in Miami — which was shut down by cops — as well as a party on a yacht and a big dinner.

Then we revealed he took the celebration to Aruba where he took over a little private island for a day, then threw himself a party on the beach the next day, and then took over club last Thursday night.

We were told the ring legend — who seems intent on single-handedly making up for all the partying that the world has missed out on over the past 12 months — had “a bunch of girls down there.”

In 2019 Mayweather spent an estimated $60 million on his own private Gulfstream jet, dubbed “Air Mayweather,” which he has used to travel the world, even reportedly jetting to Iceland for a single Instagram selfie.

His reps did not respond to requests for comment.
