Tiffany Haddish bought herself an oxygen chamber.

The 'Girls Trip' actress decided to make a "huge splurge" on a hypobaric chamber - which has higher air pressure than normal so the user can breathe in more pure oxygen than normal - after hearing LeBron James advocate their use because she thought it would make her a better performer.

She told People's Every Day' podcast: "Now, just recently in 2020, I bought a hypobaric 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 hypobaric chambers.

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

The 41-year-old star admitted she has been "splurging a lot lately" but recalled how her first big purchase was on a microscope because of her interest in science.

She said: "The first thing I splurged on was a microscope.

"That was back in 2016, 2015. Maybe that was 2014 when I bought the microscope. That was splurging, okay? 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, okay?"
