Comedienne Tiffany Haddish purchased her own personal oxygen chamber to ensure she will always perform at her very best.

The Girls Trip star made the extravagant purchase after she heard basketball superstar LeBron James raving about the benefits of home hyperbaric therapy.

A hyperbaric oxygen chamber pressurizes the air so the user can breathe in more pure oxygen.

Hyperbaric therapy is well-known for treating deep-sea divers who suffer from decompression sickness or "the bends" from ascending too rapidly.

Hyperbaric chambers don't come cheap. They retail from $8,000 to over $200,000.

Tiffany told People's Every Day podcast:

"Now, just recently in 2020, I bought a hyperbaric chamber. That was a huge splurge. That was a down payment on a little house in Texas. That's because I saw LeBron James, and he said he be in hyperbaric chambers.

"I said, 'Well, if he is performing at his best coming out of a hyperbaric chamber, I need to be getting a hyperbaric chamber, too, so I can perform at my best.'"

Tiffany admitted she has been "splurging a lot lately", but recalled how her first big purchase was rather unusual for a celebrity.

"The first thing I splurged on was a microscope," she explained.

"That was back in 2016, 2015. Maybe that was 2014 when I bought the microscope. That was splurging, OK? It was like, a $300 microscope."

Asked why she bought it, Tiffany replied:

"Because I'm a scientist... I like looking at germs. I'm interested in nature, OK?"
