What did your dad get you for your 18th birthday? Mine got me a pair of work boots and let me have guzzle a six pack of Bud Heavys with him while grilling up some porterhouse steaks. Truly felt like a king.

And then I camera across this story on what personal injury attorney Thomas J. Henry threw together for his son, and I’ve stopped answering my dad’s calls.

Last year, the Texas man spent $6 million on his daughter Maya’s quinceañera. This past weekend, for his son Thomas J. Henry Jr.’s 18th birthday party, he dropped a cool $4 million. How does an ambulance chaser afford such lavish parties, you ask? Well as one example, in November, Henry won a $45.3 million verdict on behalf of his client when she was injured after getting rear-ended by an energy services vehicle whose driver was on his cell phone.

According to USA Today, Thomas’ party was held at the illustrious Hotel Discotheque lounge in San Antonio. The event was produced by celebrity production designer Dylan Marer, who put together a Gatsby-mixed-with-burlesque theme complete with showgirls, aerial performers, art installations and contortionists.

And for celebrity talent in attendance: the party featured performances by Diplo, J Balvin and Migos and celebrity guests included Ashanti, Rumer Willis, Lance Bass, Josh Henderson, Adrienne Bailon, Joanna Krupa, Aubrey O’Day, and Austin Mahone.

Thomas, who sat in a grand Game of Thrones-esque throne for some of the party, was given a fully loaded blue Ferrari, an IWC Portugieser Tourbillion watch (estimated $200,000) and a custom-made painting from Alec Monopoly.

Henry Sr. has become known for his over-the-top parties–namely  the 2017 Republic Records Grammy after party and the 2017 Maxim Super Bowl party.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
