Since the project's commencement, there have been many unconfirmed reports of celebrities who have purchased, or intend to purchase, islands.

In March 2006, Richard Branson appeared at a media conference on the "Great Britain" island. However, this was to announce direct London to Dubai flights by Virgin Atlantic, and was not related to his investing in the project.[3]

Fijian golfer Vijay Singh has been linked to the archipelago, but it is not confirmed that he has bought or intends to buy an island; he is involved with another Nakheel Properties development in Jumeirah on the Dubai mainland.[4]

On 24 October 2006 seven-time Formula 1 World Champion Michael Schumacher was presented with one of the islands by Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum on the occasion of his final Grand Prix, in Brazil. Schumacher's manager Willi Weber, suggested, "Perhaps he'll build a kart racing track on [the island]."[5]

British celebrities Rod Stewart and David Beckham have also been rumoured to have bought into this project, but neither of these have been confirmed. Beckham does own a villa on the nearby Palm Jumeirah.


On 15 November 2007 Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were reported to have purchased the island "Ethiopia".

I'm gonna have to admit those islands look so awesome, can you imagine having an entire one to yourself?!?
But they have too many negatives, like they constantly have to manually add more sand to them because the ocean/waves are eroding them away really quickly, and the islands have stopped the natural flow/currents in the water so the pH stuff is all messed up. It's not good for the sea life there
