Chris Brown Net Worth: $50 million
Born: 5th May 1989  (33 Years Old)
Profession:Singer, songwriter, actor, dancer
Nationality:American
Children: 3

The American singer, songwriter, actor, and dancer Chris Brown has a net worth of $50 million.

Early Life 

Christopher Maurice Brown was born in a small town called Tappahannock in Virginia. His mother, Joyce Hawkins, was a director of a daycare center and his father, Clinton Brown, was a local prison corrections officer. Chris has an older sister called Lytrell Bundy. 

During his childhood, he would listen to his parents’ soul albums and eventually showed an interest in hip-hop. He taught himself to dance and sing and states that he was inspired by Michael Jackson.

Chris’s first performances were in local talent shows and in a church choir. His mother knew he had vocal talent after he performed Usher’s “My Way” and went on the hunt for a record deal for him. 

All through this, Brown had some issues due to his parent’s divorce and his mother’s boyfriend’s violent streak.

Career Beginning

When he was 13, Hitmission Records, a local production team, visited a local gas station where Brown’s father worked on the lookout for new talent. He was given voice coaching and recorded a demo under the guise of “C. Sizzle.” 

Brown went to Essex High School in his town in Virginia until the end of 2004, when he decided to move to New York to follow his dreams of a music career. 

When in New York, he auditioned at Def Jam Recordings and was immediately offered a contract. The contract was in negotiations when the senior A&R executive, Tina Davis, lost her role in a merger.

At this time, Brown requested her to be his manager, and she then promoted him to Warner Bros. Records, J-Records, and Jive Records. It was Jive that Brown signed to due to their success with Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears at the time.

Brown’s First Album and Acting Debut

Chris Brown signed to Jive Records in 2004 and started recording his debut album in 2005. He had recorded 50 songs by May and 14 of those were chosen for the album. He co-wrote half of the tracks. 

The album did well, debuting at number two and selling 154,000 copies in the first week. The self-titled album sold six million copies globally was went 3x platinum. 

Shortly after his first album’s success, Chris Brown landed a role in The O.C. as a band geek. He also made his debut in film in the 2007 dance drama Stomp the Yard.

Touring with Beyoncé and Second Album

By April 2007, Chris Brown was touring with Beyoncé as her opening act in Australia. 

Shortly afterward, he started working on his second album. Exclusive wasn’t as successful as Chris Brown, though it still debuted at number four and sold 294,000 copies during the first week.

The lead single called “Wall to Wall” didn’t do very well, however, and only peaked at number 79. The second single from the album, “Kiss” was a huge success and reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Graffiti and Personal Scandal

Brown started working on this third album, Graffiti, in 2008. He promised he would experiment with different musical inspirations like Michael Jackson and Prince. 

However, in 2009 there was soon to be a scandal around domestic violence with his girlfriend Rihanna, which meant most of the media went against the singer. This caused him to lose huge commercial contracts, including one with Wrigley’s Doublemint chewing gum. 

Despite the scandal, Brown released the album’s lead single called “I Can Transform Ya” in September 2009, which peaked at number 20. The album itself was released in December, and it was the first of his albums that he wrote entirely (bar one song).

This was both a critical and commercial failure for Brown and it sold 102,000 copies in its first week, debuting on the US Billboard 200 at number 7.

Chris Brown sang a Michael Jackson Tribute at the BET Awards in 2010. While singing “Man in the Mirror” he began to cry, which resonated with many celebrities and fans since Jackson had died not that long ago. 

Brown accepted an award for AOL Fandemonium and said, “I let y’all down before, but I won’t do it again… I promise.” Whether this was in relation to his domestic violence with Rihanna or his terrible album, we don’t know.

Brown’s Subsequent Albums

Chris Brown released his 4th album called F.AM.E (forgiving all my enemies) in 2011. Compared to his third studio album, this was a huge success and debuted at number one. 

To promote this album, Brown embarked upon a tour in North America and Australia. 

In the 2011 BET Awards, he won five awards from six nominations. These awards included the Viewers Choice Award, the Fandemonium Award, Best Male R&B Artist, Video of the Year Award (for “Look at Me Now,” and Best Collaboration. He also had three nominations at the Grammys and won Best R&B Album. 

It was at these Grammy Awards that Brown performed for the first time since he was convicted of felony assault.

In the last ten years, Chris Brown has released five more studio albums, X in 2014, Royalty in 2015, Heartbreak on a Full Moon in 2017, Indigo in 2019, and Breezy in 2022. 

Musical Style and Influences

Brown’s style has been commended by critics as he has helped to evolve the R&B genre. He himself states that he has been inspired by Michael Jackson, Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, Phil Collins, R. Kelly, Bobby Brown, and Ginuwine. 

Relationships

Until the highly publicized domestic violence case in 2009, Chris Brown was in a relationship with Rihanna for two years. Later in 2009, Brown was reunited with an ex-girlfriend from his Virginian hometown. He was also linked to Jasmine Sanders in 2010 and 2019. 

After rumors circulated in January 2013, Rihanna confirmed she and Brown were in a relationship once again. However, by May, Brown stated that they had broken up. 

Chris Brown has three children. His first child, a daughter called Royalty, was with Nia Guzman. She was born on 27th May 2014. 

On 20th November 2019, Brown had a son called Aeko with Ammika Harris.

Dan Bilzerian Net Worth: $200 million
Born: 7th December 1980 (41 Years Old)
Profession: Poker player, Entrepreneur, Influencer
Children:0
Nationality:American
Zodiac Sign:Sagittarius
Hobbies:Shooting, Partying
Hometown:Tampa, Florida

In 2022, famous poker player and social media influencer Dan Bilzerian’s net worth is approximately $200 million.

Bilzerian has accumulated his wealth through a number of different means, including a trust fund set up by his parents, playing high-stakes poker, real estate investing, social media marketing, and acting.

Also known as the “King of Instagram” (over 33 million followers), Dan Bilzerian has made a career out of posting pictures and videos of his lavish lifestyle.

Early Life

Daniel Brandon Bilzerian was born in Tampa, Florida on December 30, 1980. His father, Paul Bilzerian, is a corporate takeover specialist (also known as a corporate raider) who was indicted for fraud in the 1980s. The financier was jailed for 11 months in 1991 when Dan was just ten years old. His mother, Terri Steffen, met his father at Stanford University and married him in 1978.

According to his LinkedIn page, his father lives on the island of St Kitts.

Dan is half Armenian from his father’s side and half American and spent much of his childhood between the two countries.

Bilzerian grew up in an eleven-bedroom mansion with a basketball court and swimming pool. Yet, despite his family’s wealth, Dan had a problematic childhood and often found himself alone.

An early Bilzerian family photo.

Talking about his childhood, he said, “Basically, I didn’t get a ton of attention as a kid. I guess that’s why I’m such a flashy lunatic.”

Following the conviction of his father, Bilzerian started to become increasingly disruptive at school and was eventually expelled from two schools in one year.

Military Service

After being asked to leave school on a number of occasions, Dan decided to join the Navy SEALs. The SEALs (Sea, Air, and Land Teams) are the US Navy’s principal special operations force. They are renowned for their physical fitness, mental toughness, and ability to operate in all environments.

Not many SEALs trainees graduate; in fact, it’s estimated that only 25% make it through the grueling training.

Bilzerian applied to the SEAL training program two times but was rejected on each occasion, eventually being honorably discharged from the Navy in 2009. He was discharged on medical grounds after breaking his leg during a parachute jump.

Poker

After his unsuccessful attempt at military service, Dan Bilzerian turned to poker.

He had learned to play the popular gambling game from his brother, Adam Bilzerian, and at the University of Florida, where he enrolled in a pre-law course but was kicked out in his second year.

Due to the injuries sustained in the military, the college undergrad could claim $6,000 a month in disability allowances for a veteran.

All his earnings went on gambling, and by his second year, he was broke. Upon hearing the news, Dan’s father stopped him from accessing his trust fund money.

Desperate for cash, Dan started selling his collection of guns which were his pride and joy.

Bilzerian’s partying habits in college led him to go broke.

Despite the losses, the young college student returned to the poker table with focus and determination.

It worked, and he turned his initial $700 investment into $10,000. After his huge win, he immediately flew to Las Vegas, where he was able to turn his $10,000 into $187,000.

Bilzerian started to earn a consistent income and was reportedly making $90,000 some weeks. After that, however, the college dropout wanted to ‘up the ante.’

High Stakes Gambling

In 2007, buoyed by his success, Bilzerian and his brother Adam (also a professional poker player) entered the high-stakes poker world.

However, he was in for a reality check when he placed 180th in the tournament World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event 2009, which had a 1st place prize of $8.5 million.

Dan earned $36,626.

His sibling Adam placed 47th and earned over $138,000.

Despite his poor performance in the tournament, Dan Bilzerian was voted as one of the funniest poker players to watch.

The former military recruit often made outrageous bets with vast amounts of money at stake. He has been known to bet over $500,000 on a single hand of blackjack and $150,000 on a single turn of the roulette wheel.

Although Dan Bilzerian has had some big wins, his losses have been just as significant. In an interview in 2017 with Graham Bensinger, he said his biggest ever poker win was $12 million in a day, and his largest loss was around $3.5million.

Because of his outlandish personality and larger-than-life character, Bilzerian started to gain a huge following on social media. This ‘persona’ made him a highly sought-after opponent to play high-stakes poker.

In the interview with Bensinger, Dan admitted that he didn’t care about being the best poker player in the world and was only interested in playing for “stacks” (large amounts of money).

In fact, Dan wanted to be perceived as a bad player as it would make it easier to play against “super rich guys that weren’t very good” in private games, which he saw as a much easier path to build wealth.

He admitted that he played up to the rich, trust fund baby, spoilt image as his billionaire gambling opponents would underestimate his poker skills giving him the edge in poker games. At the time, he didn’t have access to any trust fund money.

Bilzerian has played against a number of high-net-worth individuals, including famous actor Tobey Maguire, boxers Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquaio, and DJ Steve Aoki.

Other Gambling

Bilzerian has been known to make some outrageous bets, including:

Social Media Marketing

In 2010, off the back of his poker profile, Dan started to build his social media presence, posting pictures of his lavish lifestyle on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Dan’s social media blew up overnight as his newfound Instagram fame made him popular predominantly among young men.

After posting images of his lifestyle that included guns, fast cars, and women, Dan’s social media following increased rapidly. This made him even more attractive to poker sponsors, and he started to rake in even more millions from his gambling career.

Within a few short years, he became known as the ‘King of Instagram’ and currently has over 33 million followers.

How Much Does Dan Bilzerian Earn From Instagram?

While not his primary source of income, Instagram does provide the poker star with another source of revenue which is impressive considering he posts pictures of his life.

Each of Bilzerian’s photos receives an average of 1.9 million likes and has an engagement rate of around 1.0% (which is very good). 

It is estimated that accounts of this size and engagement can charge between $75,000 and $150,000 per post. This potentially means that Bilzerian could earn $50 million from his Instagram account alone if he posted daily. 

However, most social media influencers of this size don’t typically do promotional posts for other companies and focus on their brand and products.

Dan believes that he could be making “probably $10-$15million” a year just from his Instagram if he wanted to.

Houses

Dan has several houses, one in Florida and one in Los Angeles.

After selling his house in Las Vegas in 2017 for over $5 million (which he bought in 2014 for $4 million), the bachelor rents out mansions whenever he stays in Vegas.

His old 9,000 square ft Vegas house had everything you would need, including a gourmet kitchen, library, sauna, fitness suite, indoor theatre, and an outdoor pool.

The poker star now spends most of his time in a $67.5 million Bel-Air mansion which he rents for $200,000 a month.

Spanning 30,000 square feet, 10979 Chalon Road is one of the most luxurious Los Angeles homes on the market. And the price sure does reflect that: the house is now listed for $67.5 million.

The massive Los Angeles estate at 10979 Chalon Road spans 30,000 square feet and is fit for luxury living. The current asking price of $67.50 million certainly reflects this.

The 13-bedroom, 24-bathroom mansion boasts stunning views of the Bel-Air golf course, the city of Los Angeles, and the majestic Pacific Ocean.

The mega mansion features multiple staircases, an elevator, a 40+ seat home theater, multiple living and dining areas, a 2-lane bowling alley, salon/ spa, 14 attached garage spaces, rooftop infinity pool, rooftop gym, a 12-foot waterfall, tennis courts, putting green and five wet bars.

How Many Cars Does Bilzerian Have?

Bilzerian is a massive fan of supercars and always adds to his magnificent car collection. And while his car collection is just as impressive as his houses, it’s hard to pin down just how many cars he has.

His stable of luxury cars includes a Lamborghini Aventador worth over $750,000, a 1965 Shelby Cobra worth $850,000, Rolls Royce Phantom valued at $1.2 million, a Rolls Royce Cullinan worth $1 million, and a Cadillac Escalade worth $80,000.

Private Jet

The college dropout owns a Gulfstream G-IV private jet which is valued to be in the region of $6 million.

Dan Bilzerian’s Super Yacht

In 2021, Bilzerian purchased a custom superyacht for approximately $60 million. The yacht contains a movie theater and two pools.

Acting

At the height of his social media fame, Bilzerian was offered and applied for a number of acting roles in Hollywood, including The Equalizer with Denzel Washington and The Other Woman with Cameron Diaz.

Unfortunately, Dan’s acting career never really took off, and his only notable role to date is in the 2016 film War Dogs where he played himself.

Dan invested $1m in the Mark Wahlberg war film Lone Survivor, which was conditional upon him getting at least eight minutes of screen time and 80 words of dialogue. Unfortunately, his role was eventually cut to just one line, and he would end up suing the production team.

Having reaped all the publicity, Bilzerian decided to drop the case as he’d made millions from his initial investment in the film’s success.

Even though Dan’s acting career never really took off, he did make a cameo appearance in the music video for Work Hard Play Hard by American rapper Wiz Khalifa.

Presidential Run

Bilzerian announced his bid to run for the President of the United States in 2016, giving him much attention. Although, he later stopped his run for the presidency and endorsed Republican Donald Trump over Democratic opponent Hilary Clinton.

Bilzerian still has aspirations to run for the highest political office in America and believes he will run again in the next ten years.

Business and Investing

Dan Bilzerian’s career as a social media star has been filled with highlights. In addition, he has earned millions through his poker playing and other business ventures.

In 2016, Dan released a mobile game app, Save Dan, available for download on iOS and android. The game was based on a Zombie Apolocapyse where the aim is to save Dan from hordes of women zombies. The game was not well received by the public and was quickly pulled from app stores.

What is Dan Bilzerians Company?

In 2017, after growing tired of playing poker, Dan founded his own company, Ignite International Brands Ltd. The company sells Cannabidiol (CBD), Nicotine, Spirits, and Beverages.

Headquartered in Toronto, Canada, the company went public in January 2019 and currently has a market capitalization of $117 million. Revenue in the 4th quarter of 2021 was approximately $50 million, which is exceptional performance considering in its previous year, the company earned $16 million in the financial year.

It shows a remarkable turnaround in which the company’s future looked bleak in 2019 when it posted a $50 million loss.

In 2013, Dan put up 20% of the $10,000 buy-in for an up-and-coming poker star, Jay Farber, at the World Series of Poker. When Farber won $5m, Dan was able to claim a $1m cut. What’s more: he got to sit in the front row, getting his beard stroked by a model on live television.

Books

In 2022, Bilzerian wrote his own book titled The Setup (Foreword by David Goggins). The book is highly rated and averages a 4.1/5 on goodread.com as it details his upbringing and crazy times in Las Vegas.

Health

In 2005, at the age of just 25, Bilzerian suffered two heart attacks which he attributes to his extreme lifestyle of alcohol, drugs, lack of sleep, gambling, and sex.

Ice Cube Net Worth: $160 million
Born: 15th June 1969 (53 Years Old)
Profession: Rapper, actor, and filmmaker  
Children:4
Nationality:American

The American rapper, actor, and filmmaker Ice Cube, has a net worth of approximately $160 million. 

Early Life 

O’Shea Jackson Sr., or Ice Cube, was born on the 15th of June 1969.

He was born in Los Angeles to parents Hosea Jackson and Doris Jackson. His father was a groundskeeper at UCLA as well as a machinist, while his mother was a custodian and hospital clerk.

Jackson grew up in the Westmont area of South Los Angeles, on Van Wick Street. He has an older brother and a half-sister. Unfortunately, his sister was murdered when Ice Cube was just twelve years old.

According to Ice Cube himself, it was his older brother who made him think of his stage name. This is after his brother had threatened to put him into a freezer and only take him out when he had turned into an ice cube.

Education  

Ice Cube went to LA’s George Washington Preparatory High School. It was when he was in 9th grade here that he began to write raps. The rapping began in his typewriting class when he was challenged by a friend who went by the nickname “Kiddo.” 

Jackson attended William Howard Taft High School in California’s Woodland Hills. This was a suburban school that was 40 miles away from where he lived. He went there on the bus to get away from the high-crime neighborhood he was living in. 

In the fall of 1987, Ice Cube enrolled at the Phoenix Institute of Technology in Arizona. A year later, he had achieved an architectural drafting diploma and returned to LA to try to launch his rap career. His architecture drafting career was his backup plan. 

Building a Rap Career

At the age of 16 in 1986, Ice Cube began wrapping in a wrap trio called C.I.A., which was an acronym for Cru’ in Action! 

During his time with this group, he performed at parties that were hosted by fellow rapper Dr. Dre who was a member of the World Class Wreckin’ Cru, a famous DJ crew. 

In the same year, Dre had Ice Cube join him on a side project, and he recorded a 12-inch record called “She’s a Skag” that was released in 1986 on Epic Records.

It wasn’t long before he joined a new group called N.W.A, however. This group was one of the first to popularize the subgenre of gangsta rap.

When he was a part of N.W.A., he was the group’s lead rapper and ghostwriter on their debut album Straight Outta Comptom in 1988. He was also the group’s only member not to be born in Compton. 

However, there was a dispute over finances and Ice Cube left the group before the new decade. He sued Jerry Heller, N.W.A’s manager and it was settled out of court. 

Going Solo

In 1990, Jackson released his first solo album called AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted through Priority Records. This album was a huge success and was partly responsible for Ice Cube’s integration into the mainstream. 

The album was, however, controversial and there were accusations of racism and misogyny. It was this album that affirmed Ice Cube’s ideology of black struggle and Black nationalism.

Ice Cube also helped to develop Yo-Yo as a rapper as he appointed her to feature on his album and then helped her with her own debut album called Make Way for the Motherlode.

The same year, Ice Cube released Kill at Will, his first EP, and a huge success. This EP was certified platinum and critically acclaimed.

Second and Third Albums

The rapper released his second album in 1991. Death Certificate was more controversial than his first album and was accused of being misogynistic, antisemitic, and anti-white. 

The album also sends insults toward N.W.A and their manager, mentioning him as a Jew and calling for his murder. “Black Korea” was also a track deemed to be racist.

Despite its controversies, the album broadened Ice Cube’s audience, and he ended up touring in 1992 with Lollapalooza music festival.

The Predator was Ice Cube’s third album, and this was released in November 1992. This was the first to debut at number one on both the pop charts and R&B/hip-hop charts. It drew critical praise was sold more than three million copies in the United States alone.

The Predator was the last of Ice Cube’s albums to please his rap audience and his audience diminished after this.

Phil Mickelson Net Worth: $300 million
Born:16th June 1970 (52 Years Old)
Profession: Golfer  
Children: 3
Nationality:American

The American professional golfer Phil Mickelson has a net worth of $300 million.   

Early life 

Philip Alfred Mickelson was born on 16th June 1970 to Mary Santos and Philip Mickelson, a former naval aviator turned airline pilot. He was born and raised in San Diego, California, and also spend time in Scottsdale, Arizona.

He is of Portuguese, Sicilian, and Swedish heritage.

Phil Mickelson’s interest in golf began at a young age. His maternal grandfather worked as a caddie and took young Phil to play golf as a child.

Mickelson was right-handed but learned to play by observation and so mirrored his father’s right swing by playing golf left-handed. This has gained him the nickname ‘lefty’.

Mickelson was playing golf with his father before starting school. Due to his father’s work schedule, they were able to play together many times a week.

According to his parents, Phil ran away from home aged three and told neighbors he would play golf.

Education  

Mickelson attended Cathedral Catholic High School in San Diego, California, and graduated in 1988. 

After graduating from high school, the golfing prodigy won a golf scholarship at Arizona State University, where he went to study psychology. It was here he became the United States’ face of amateur golf. 

Early Golfing Achievements 

While Mickelson was at Arizona State University, he won the Haskins Award three years running in 1990, 1991, and 1992). This award is given to the most outstanding collegiate golfer in the US.

He competed in three NCAA championships, sharing the record for the most with Ben Crenshaw.

While playing collegiate golf, Mickelson won 16 tournaments, and he was the second collegiate golfer to earn All-American honors for the first team for all four years. 

1990 saw Mickelson become the first left-handed player to win the U.S. Amateur title.

His most outstanding achievement, however, was in January 1991, when he won the Northern Telecom Opera, his first PGA Tour event. This is still the most recent amateur win at a PGA Tour event.

Mickelson’s Professional Career

In 1992, Phil Mickelson graduated from Arizona State University and turned to professional golf. Thanks to his win in 1991 at the Northern Telecom Open, he bypassed the qualifying process for the tour for two years.

Mickelson’s first professional caddy was Jim “Bones” Mackay, a role he held for 25 years. 

Mickelson won lots of PGA tournaments in the first decade of his professional career. These include the World Series of Golf and the Byron Nelson Golf Classic in 1996, and 1998’s AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. 

First major wins   

Mickelson didn’t get his first major wins until he’d been playing professionally for 13 years. In 2004, he won the Masters on the PGA Tour with a 5.5-meter birdie on the final hole. He became the third left-handed golfer ever to win a major. 

Just prior to 2004’s Ryder Cup, Mickelson was dropped from his Titleist/Acushnet Golf contract after leaving a voicemail to a rival company praising them. 

He was then taken on by the company Callaway Golf, but received scrutiny and ridicule for this sudden change just before the Ryder Cup.

Mickelson performed poorly at said cup but refused to blame the last-minute equipment change.

After a year, Mickelson was back on form and won his second major at Baltusrol at the PGA Championship. He then went on to win his third major at the Masters in 2006.

2006 U.S. Open

After winning two majors, Mickelson tried his hand at joining Tiger Woods and Ben Hogan to win three majors consecutively. He was in joint lead at the final round but made huge mistakes at the final hole and tied for second place.

Mickelson’s Renowned Generosity and Losing Weight  

The American golfer is known for his generosity and his interaction with the crowds at golfing events.

After breaking a spectator’s watch in the 2006 Ford Championship, Mickelson gave the man $200. 

The following year, he volunteered to pay for Conrad Dobler’s daughter Hollli’s tuition fees for Miami University after hearing the retired NFL player’s struggles with medical bills on ESPN.

Mickelson appeared in Men’s Vogue recalling his efforts to lose 9 kg (20 lbs) with Sean Cochran, a trainer. When training, he ate five small meals a day, did flexibility and power exercises alongside aerobic training, and carried his golf bag himself.

Breaking From Golf and Family Illnesses   

Mickelson continued playing golf and won his 36th victory and first World Golf Championship in 2009 by one stroke ahead of Nick Watney.

He briefly took time away from golf the same year due to his wife being diagnosed with breast cancer. However, he returned after hearing it had been caught early. 

Just a few months later, Mickelson’s mother was also diagnosed with the same disease, and so Mickelson took another break from the sport.

The 2010s Onwards

Mickelson was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis in 2010. He switched to a vegetarian diet and began medical treatment with the hope of a successful recovery. His prognosis was good, and he continued to play golf.

His career certainly didn’t end as a result, and he even went on to win both the Scottish Open and The Open Championship in 2013, which was the first time any player had won both in the same year. 

In the following few years, Mickelson had a few issues with form and had some close calls and championships but no wins. His winless streak finally ended in 2018 at the WGC-Mexico Championship. 

This win, at age 47, meant he was the oldest person to ever win this championship.

His winning streak continued as he defeated Paul Casey at the 2019 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and this was his 44th title in his career. He was 48 and the oldest ever winner of this event.

Mickelson continued to be undeterred by his age and went on to win the Dominion Energy Charity Classic in Virginia in 2020 and continued playing well in the 2021 PGA Tour Championships.

Mickelson’s Career Achievements and Earnings

Phil Mickelson ranks 2nd on the all-time PGA Tour money list in terms of prize money he has won. However, he earns much more from his endorsements than he does prize money.

It was estimated in 2011 that he was the second-highest paid US athlete with an income of more than $62 million. It is believed that $53 million was from endorsements. 

In 2022, Mickelson lost many of his endorsements after he made some comments about LIV Golf, a Saudi-backed golf league. 

He had described Saudis as “scary mother*****s to get involved with… We know they killed Khashoggi and have a horrible record on human rights. They execute people over there for being gay. Knowing all of this, why would I even consider it? Because this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to reshape how the PGA Tour operates.”

Family life and Personal Life

Mickelson married Amy McBride in 1996. She was also an ASU alum as well as a cheerleader for the Phoenix Suns in the NBA. They have three daughters called Amanda and Sophia and a son called Evan. 

Mickelson is a Christian and supports the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. He has also been involved in several charitable causes.

Mickelson is interested in real estate and also owns six Arizona golf courses.

He is open about how he had a gambling problem. He has admitted to having hundreds of hours’ worth of therapy. He once lost over $40 million over four years.

Bob and his family moved to Norfolk in Virginia early in his life, and he attended Lake Taylor High briefly.

Saget attributed the start of his sense of humor developing after being a rebellious student at the Temple Israel in Norfolk, a conservative synagogue. 

When Saget turned 13, he went back to Philadelphia for his bar mitzvah as his family lived there. 

After living in Norfolk, Virginia, Saget, and his family moved to Los Angeles in the Encino neighborhood. This is where he met The Three Stooges’ Larry Fine. 

Education  

Just before Saget’s senior year, the family moved back to Philadelphia and Bob Saget graduated from Abington Senior High School. 

Originally, Saget wanted to be a doctor, but he was encouraged to work in films by his English teacher, who saw his potential. 

As a result, Saget went to the film school at Temple University in Philadelphia and created a black-and-white film called Through Adam’s Eyes. This won him a merit award in the Student Academy Awards. He graduated in 1978.

After this, Saget did intend to take a graduate course at the University of Southern California, but he decided to quit after a few days. 

Family 

Saget had two older sisters, Andrea and Gay. Gay was a schoolteacher near Philadelphia.

In 1984, Andrea died from a brain aneurism aged just 35. In 1994, Gay died from systemic scleroderma, having only been diagnosed a few years before. She was 47.

Saget’s mother and father died in 2014 and 2007, respectively. 

Career 

Saget’s first role was a short stint on The Morning Program on CBS in 1987. After this, he took on the role of Danny Tanner, a widowed father, in the ABC sitcom Full House.

Full House was a huge success and was in the Top 30 in the Nielsen ratings.

Two years later in 1998, Saget directed Dirty Work, his first feature film. This starred Artie Lange and Norm Macdonald.

As a parody of March of the Penguins (2005), Bob Saget wrote, starred, and directed in Farce of the Penguins. This was released directly to DVD in 2007. 

In 2014, Saget released a book called Dirty Daddy. The book contains stories about his career, his experiences with life (and death) and his comedy influences. 

He followed the book with a small book tour and a tour of his stand-up called Bob Saget Live: The Dirty Daddy Tour. This was a tour of Australia, which saw him perform in Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, and Sydney. 

Reprise of Full House Role

Saget reprised his role as Danny Tanner in a Full House sequel series called Fuller House. This ran for fifteen episodes.

Saget’s Death and Posthumous Podcast Release

On 9th January 2022 (which is also the same date as his sister’s birthday), Saget was found to be unresponsive in a hotel room in the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando. This was after he had missed his checkout time and his family had been unable to contact him. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

At the time of his death, Saget had been performing a stand-up tour and had just performed the previous evening in Ponte Vedra Beach, Jacksonville, Florida 150 miles away. He was due to continue performing in Florida, then going through America before finishing the tour in June in Canada.

A month later, the autopsy revealed that he had died from blunt head trauma after an accidental blow to his head, which is likely to have been a fall. 

It is believed that he died in his sleep from the resulting injuries – a subarachnoid hemorrhage and a subdural hematoma. He was also positive for Covid-19 when he died.

Saget’s funeral was held on 14th January 2022, and he was buried in Mount Sinai Memorial Park Cemetery, the largest Jewish cemetery in California, close to his sister’s and parents’ graves.

Prior to his death, the comedian had been working on a podcast with Studio71 called Bob Saget’s Here for You.

Robert Kiyosaki Net Worth:$100 million
Born: 8th April 1947 (75 Years Old)
Profession:World Renowned Author, Real Estate Investor, Entrepreneur
Nationality:American
Children:0
Married:Kim Kiyosaki In 1994
Residence:Lives In Phoenix, Arizona

In 2022, Financial Author and American Entrepreneur Robert Kiyosaki’s net worth is approximately, $100 million.

How did the son of a school teacher, born in Hawaii acquire such a vast amount of wealth?

His best-selling book, “Rich Dad Poor Dad”, explains all the secrets to his success and what he learned early on about how the rich get money and what they do differently from everyone else.

What is Rich Dad Poor Dad About? Is There Really a Rich Dad?

Growing up as one of the poorest in his class, wealth had always fascinated the young Kiyosaki.

Like so many youngsters, he wanted to know how the rich got their money.

However, it was of little interest to his academic father, who was more concerned about his own salary and pension that he received from the state rather than starting a business.

Realizing that he was going to have to figure out how to build wealth on his own, he and his friend Mike, whom the young Robert Kiyosaki met in school and who was also desperate to make money, set out to find someone who was rich and see how they did it.

A simple yet effective strategy and as it turned out that they didn’t have to look that far.

Mike’s father was a local businessman who was in the early stages of building his business empire.

After testing the boy’s ability to learn about business, Mike’s Dad took the two boys under his wing.

He taught them how the business worked and what the rich did differently to everyone else. He became known as Kiyosaki’s “Rich Dad” in the book.

Many have asked if the original story of a young Kiyosaki acquiring all his business knowledge from his friend’s Dad was true or not.

Was it just the author’s attempt to add a compelling storyline to what otherwise would have been a drab personal finance book??

Well, it turns out the story was true as Kiyosaki confirms on his YouTube Channel, where he talks to “Mike” (real name Alan).

Kiyosaki revealed that Alan’s father was Richard Kimi, who was one of the wealthiest businessmen in Hawaii and was the owner of the Sand & Seaside chain of hotels on the American island.

How Did Robert Kiyosaki Make His Money?

The simple answer is by building businesses, investing (predominantly in real estate), and selling financial advice books.

But it isn’t as simple as that.

Like so many entrepreneurs and business owners, it has been a long road of lots of small successes and several failures too (even a few bankruptcies).

In the early days of building his empire, Robert Kiyosaki’s net worth wasn’t anything to write home about.

In fact, at one point, Kiyosaki had taken out an eye-watering amount of debt ($750,000) to fund his entrepreneurial endeavors.

But by sticking to the principles he learned from childhood, he started to see his successes multiply and compound into the multi-million dollar enterprises that we see today.

Building His Business Empire

Kiyosaki has only ever had a conventional job for four years of his entire life, and that was during the late 1970s when went to work for office technology giant Xerox.

He did so to acquire the skills necessary to become a salesman as his “Rich Dad” taught him that sales were the key to financial success.

It didn’t take him long to learn the ropes as he quickly became the number one salesman at the Honolulu branch in Hawaii.

After learning what it took to become a top salesman, the budding entrepreneur knew that his future was in business rather than working for a company, even if it was a lucrative position.

At 30, he left the 9 to 5 sales job and founded a business with his brother.

Rippers” was a pioneering company that was one of the first to combine nylon and velcro for a wallet.

Trust me, it was very innovative at the time.

Kiyosaki’s initial foray into the business world was undoubtedly a success, especially at the start, as it turned him into a millionaire before he was 30.

However, Rippers’ demise and ultimate bankruptcy taught the aspiring entrepreneur a huge lesson in trademarks and patents and not letting an overly extravagant lifestyle catch up with you.

Undeterred from the “setback,” in the mid-80s, Kiyosaki co-founded the Excellerated Learning Institute (ELI) with his future wife, Kim.

The institute was an international education company that specialized in business and investing.

It was the perfect fit for the financial guru to combine his business knowledge together with the marketing and communication skills he had honed at Xerox.

ELI was a huge success, and it not only set Kiyosaki on the path to financial freedom but also allowed him to help others master the principles he had been fortunate to learn from a young age.

Investing (Real Estate)

Whilst Kiyosaki was working the corporate ladder, the shrewd salesman always kept his eye on any potential purchases in the real estate market.

If he saw that there was a bargain to be had, he would invest in the property immediately.

Kiyosaki understood that building assets (especially in real estate at the time) that also provided an income was the sure-fire way to becoming successful over the long term

This is demonstrated in “Rich Dad Poor Dad” business lesson number #1:

Rich Dad Poor Dad – Lesson #1

The Rich Don’t Work For Money

Robert Kiyosaki

Sounds crazy right?

But think about it. Are the wealthy and successful individuals that you see today chained to their desks, working every hour of the day?

Of course, the answer is no.

By generating multiple streams of recurring income via his property investments, Kiyosaki was using his financial intelligence to have his money work for him.

This was and still is one of the key secrets to building wealth.

Whilst others would spend their incomes on buying sports cars and houses they can’t afford and go deeper into debt whilst doing it, the smart entrepreneur was building up the amount of income-producing assets in his name.

If you want to be rich and successful…please take note.

Financial Advice Books

After setting up the (ELI) in 1984 and achieving his goal of becoming financially free within ten years, Kiyosaki soon realized that he had a passion for teaching and helping others become financially independent.

It is ironic that the young Kiyosaki, who didn’t follow his father’s (“Poor Dad”) advice of becoming a teacher as he believed it to be a dead end job, would later on in his life set up his first real successful business in the education sector.

After hosting numerous seminars and lectures, it was always going to be a natural step for the gifted guru to write a book about what he had learned during his time in business.

However, not even Kiyosaki could have imagined the impact his books would go on to have.

His first book, If You Want to Be Rich and Happy, Don’t Go To School, achieved notable success. However, it was the release of “Rich Dad Poor Dad” in 1997 that skyrocketed his sales and reputation.

The reception of the personal finance book was unprecedented as it quickly became the bible for those looking to build wealth and improve their lives.

To date the book has sold over 40 million copies and has been on the New York Times bestsellers list for over six years…an incredible feat.

As his audience and followers grew, Kiyosaki became somewhat of a celebrity which led to an invite to be a guest on the biggest talk show of the 90s, The Oprah Winfrey Show.

That one appearance would change everything.

In just one show, Robert Kiyosaki’s net worth exploded as he became a household name.

His book sales went through the stratosphere overnight as millions flocked to buy the bestselling book on the market.

Clearly, the Hawaiian entrepreneur was tapping into something big. There was a huge market for people looking to escape their 9 to 5 jobs and gain financial freedom.

At this point Kiyosaki could have capitalised on his brief stint as a high profile celebrity but it was not in his nature to do so.

But the celebrity lifestyle wasn’t for the humble 53-year-old who always had a passion for continual learning and helping others achieve their financial dreams.

He has continued to write about personal finance to help educate those about what the rich do differently with their money and has written 27 books to date on the subject.

Two of those books were a collaboration with New York businessman and former President of the United States, Donald Trump.

Kiyosaki still claims that he is not one of the best authors around despite having a list of accolades that even J.K Rowling would be proud of.

Since its release, “Rich Dad Poor Dad” has become USA Today’s #1 Money Book for two years in a row, the third longest-running “how-to” book of all time and the longest-running bestseller at the New York Times.

That’s why its “called best seller and not the best author”, according to the financial educator.

And if there’s one thing he knows – it’s how to sell.

Robert Kiyosaki’s Net Worth Explained: The Business Principles Behind His Success

He has traveled the world, hosted thousands of seminars, and written nearly 30 books over the last few decades, but the message has remained consistent.

The principles of building wealth that the financial coach teaches are not complicated.

In fact, once you break them down, they are essentially common sense.

So what has Kiyosaki been doing these last 30 years??? Promoting common sense??

No…it’s much more powerful than that.

Kiyosaki promotes taking action to change your life and getting started rather than waiting for the perfect time to start…because it will never come.

Don’t Be The Average

Robert Kiyosaki’s net worth isn’t something you achieve by being average.

The acclaimed author has consistently argued that if you do all the things that conventional wisdom and society say you should, then you will get the same results as everyone else.

You will have the average life.

A life dominated by huge amounts of debt means you have to be in a job that you stopped enjoying a long time ago.

Over time the number of dependants (the people who depend on your “stable” income) will grow, and it will become too risky for most people to break out of this situation.

To avoid this, you must learn the common sense principles that Kiyosaki describes in his book, which essentially is tobuild assets, not liabilities.

It really is as simple as that.

But very few will actually put into practice this advice.

Build Assets, Not Liabilities

One of the cornerstones of the author’s business philosophy and one of the main reasons for Robert Kiyosaki’s net worth exploding during the late 90s was that he had built assets during the 80s.

Whilst others were working 9 to 5 jobs and building assets for their employer, Kiyosaki was building up his own assets that would produce an income for him over time.

This is the key to financial freedom.

What Assets Do The Rich Buy?

Kiyosaki would always to be looking to increase the amount of income-producing assets to his name.

Whether he was building up his portfolio of real estate investments or if he was building his financial education company with his wife Kim, Kiyosaki was always building up his assets.

The income he received would allow him to cover his costs and expenses in the short term, and anything left over would be reinvested to build more long-term investments.

The eventual capital appreciation Kiyosaki would see in real estate and in his business would inevitably come over the long term.

This was a massive factor in his success.

The continual investment and reinvestment of profits compounded over time to deliver something most could only dream of.

This is what most people who are trapped in their day job couldn’t comprehend.

It was too easy for them to spend their hard-earned cash on short-term frivolities rather than looking at the bigger picture.

What Liabilities Do The Rich Have?

In addition to building his investment portfolio, Kiyosaki would also be minimizing his liabilities.

What does this mean?

Simply put – anything which would result in money leaving your bank account!

Whether it was spending on holidays, cars, or expensive restaurants, the financial guru would rarely spend money on luxuries at the beginning of his business journey, and even when he did, he would make sure the cost was covered by other income streams.

Don’t get me wrong, Kiyosaki was no stranger to debt, and in fact, he would take out huge amounts to fund his business activities.

But the key point here is that it was for business activities and not for funding a lavish lifestyle.

Kiyosaki saw plenty of people around him with flash cars and homes that they couldn’t afford but was able to finance by taking out huge mortgages and credit card debt.

This was a recipe for disaster as the Hawaiian entrepreneur knew these people would be forever paying off their debt and owning nothing.

***Side Note: The financial author always found it funny that people would spend thousands of dollars on something that would provide no income for them but would scoff at the idea at spending a few hundred bucks on a course that could improve their financial literacy and transform their life.

These people may look rich, but as Warren Buffet says, “Only when the tide goes out do you discover who’s been swimming naked”.

Saving Is For Losers

Read that title again.

I told you Kiyosaki wasn’t conventional.

We have all been told by our parents and mentors that the most responsible thing you can do with your money is to save it.

For Kiyosaki, this was terrible advice and one which would keep you poor.

Whilst it may have been the case many years ago when interest rates were in double digits, saving your money back in the 90s would see a paltry return on investment.

With near 0% interest rates, this lesson is more pertinent today than ever before.

There are risks and opportunity costs in everything we do in life. Keeping your money in a low-earning, low-risk bank account wouldn’t transform your life.

Building a portfolio of higher-interest investments which would appreciate over time was a much more appealing prospect to Kiyosaki and was the secret behind his wealth building.

Criticism of his work

If you have any experience in the financial industry, you will know that it is never short of opinions.

Trying to improve your financial literacy, whether online or via courses and books can be an absolute minefield at times.

For anything you learn or even agree with, there will always be someone who disagrees completely.

Kiyosaki’s work is no different and has attracted criticism for his unconventional approach to the industry…which also happens to be one of the reasons why he has been so successful.

However, when you personally make money by selling the dream of financial freedom, any one of your customers who fall short of achieving this after spending their hard-earned on the course, may get angry.

Bankruptcy Scandal

This indeed did happen to Kiyosaki in 2012 as he faced a series of lawsuits not only from disgruntled customers but also from Learning Annex, whose learning platform Kiyosaki’s company, Rich Global LLC, had been using for years.

robert kiyosaki twitter

Learning Annex believed they had a right to around $24 million of Kiyosaki’s profits that he had earned via the seminars held in conjunction with Learning Annex.

Rather than a long, drawn-out legal battle, the motivational speak declared bankruptcy.

Whilst the move attracted criticism, it did what he wanted it to – it ended the dispute there and then.

In the meantime, Kiyosaki spun up a new company enabling him to continue managing his business endeavors.

Robert Kiyosaki’s net worth during this time didn’t take a huge hit as he managed to retain the millions of earnings that his brand had generated, but his reputation may have been tarnished for some.

You may consider some decisions taken by the financial advisor unethical but if your goal is to acquire and keep the wealth you earn, he was playing the game very well.

Further Criticism

Real estate author and investor John Reed has also been a harsh critic of Kiyosaki’s flamboyant and unconventional style, as he claims “Rich Dad Poor Dad” is “full of statements that I would expect only from a rather ignorant … novice investor wannabe.”

Wow. Don’t hold back, John, tell us what you really think.

Even a best-selling author gets called an ignorant, novice investor, showing that you will get your critics no matter what when you put your head above the parapet.

Thoughts On The Critics

So what do you do in this situation? Who do you trust?

How about using just your own judgment?

Take some time out to read Kiyosaki’s work and make the decision yourself whether the advice given has merit or that it could be another New York Times bestseller for the shelf.

When I read the book, all the business principles that were being laid out were things that I had always suspected and previously thought, but I wasn’t sure I was on to something until I had it all laid out in print in front of me.

I thought it was dramatic when I first heard that “Rich Dad Poor Dad” was a life-changing book, but I think that it does have the potential to completely change the way you view work, business, and life.

One of the key indicators that Warren Buffet, Peter Lynch, and all the other great investors look for in an investment strategy and advisor is longevity.

No matter what your strategy is, if you have been doing it for decades and are still around today executing the same principles, it is a clear indication to them that you must be doing something right…and perhaps it’s time to dig deeper to find out what.

Kiyosaki has been consistently pushing his message for decades now, and whilst some may think he is milking the cash cow, followers of his advice will understand it is because the principles he follows are timeless and, if anything, have more relevance today than ever before.

What Happened to Robert Kiyosaki? Where Is He Now?

In the mid-80s, when Kiyosaki was venturing into the financial education sector, he met his future wife Kim.

They both had aspirations of starting a business, and within two months of dating, they cofounded an education company together.

They married the same year and have been together for nearly 40 years.

Talk about #RelationshipGoals.

The couple officially retired after they sold their financial education company in 1994 and have been based in Phoenix, Arizona, ever since.

They still spend most of their time traveling the world, managing all the business assets they have both built up over the years.

Robert Kiyosaki continues to attend the seminars of fellow financial gurus, something which he has done all his life, as he continues his passion for lifelong learning and personal development.

Kim even released her own bestseller, “Rich Woman,” in 2006, which is seen as the “sister” book to “Rich Dad Poor Dad,” aimed at educating women about financial independence and freedom.

Kim’s personal finance book

The couple are both heavily active on social media, where they regularly post interviews and discussions about the Rich Dad Poor Dad method via “The Rich Dad Channel,” which has nearly 2 million subscribers.

Given the size of their audience, the couple has inevitably used their platform to express their political viewpoints and affiliations…something that Robert has never shied away from.

And when your former business partner was the President of the United States, you can guess which side the couple leaned towards.

Summary

In 2022, Financial Author and American Entrepreneur Robert Kiyosaki’s net worth is approximately, $100 million.

Kiyosaki’s life changed when he found a business and life mentor in his friend’s father early on in his life.

His mentor taught him the timeless business principles that he felt were a closely guarded secret that the rich kept to themselves.

After building a business empire together with a portfolio of investments, Kiyosaki retired in his late 40s thanks to what he had been taught about how the rich manage their money

He wrote down everything he had learned in his bestselling book, Rich Dad Poor Dad, whose message remains the same to this day.

Rich Dad Poor Dad is now nearly 25 years old, and still to this day it remains as popular as ever, as demonstrated by the Kiyosaki couple’s social media empire.

The longevity of the personal finance book is itself an astounding achievement and has been a key reason behind Robert Kiyosaki’s net worth today.

It reinforces the notion that the ideas that Kiyosaki promotes are timeless principles that have the potential to change your life.

Mike Tyson Net Worth:$10 million
Nationality: American
Born:June 30th, 1966 (56 Years Old)
Profession:Boxer
Children:8

As one of the most iconic and successful boxers in history, it’s no surprise that Mike Tyson has a hefty net worth. With a career spanning more than 25 years, Tyson has earned millions in salary and endorsement deals. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at how Mike Tyson made his money and what his net worth is today. So read on to find out more about the “Baddest Man on the Planet!”

Early Life Of Mike Tyson

On July 30, 1966, in Brooklyn, New York, Tyson was born. Tyson’s father, Jimmy Kirkpatrick, left his family when he was two years old. His mother, Lorna Mae Tyson, raised him and his two siblings in Brownsville, Brooklyn. As a child, Tyson was often bullied and got into a lot of fights.

In order to keep him out of trouble, Tyson’s mother enrolled him in the Catskill Boxing Club when he was just 12 years old. It was there that he met trainer Cus D’Amato. Under D’Amato’s tutelage, Tyson quickly developed into a top amateur boxer. He won the Junior Olympic Boxing Championship in 1981 and 1982.

Early Boxing Career Of Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson’s professional boxing career started when he was just 18 years old. In March 1985, he made his debut against Hector Mercedes and won the fight by knockout in the first round. This set the tone for Tyson’s future boxing career as he went on to win his next 27 fights, 26 of which were by knockout.

In 1986, Tyson became the youngest heavyweight boxing champion in history when he defeated Trevor Berbick to win the World Boxing Council (WBC) title. He then went on to unify the heavyweight titles by defeating James Smith and Pinklon Thomas to claim the World Boxing Association (WBA) and International Boxing Federation (IBF) titles respectively.

Breakthrough Of Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson’s first professional bout was against Hector Mercedes on March 6, 1985. He won the fight by knockout in the first round. In November of that year, he had his first world title match against Trevor Berbick for the World Boxing Council heavyweight championship, which he also won by knockout in the second round. This made him, at 20 years old, the youngest heavyweight champion in history. He defended his title nine times between 1986 and 1990, winning all but one of his fights by knockout.

In 1988, Tyson married actress Robin Givens but the couple divorced after just one year. During this time, Tyson’s behavior became increasingly erratic and he was arrested several times for assault.

In February of 1992, Tyson was convicted of rape and sentenced to six years in prison. He was released on parole in March of 1995 and resumed his boxing career. In 1996, he regained the WBA heavyweight title with a knockout win over Frank Bruno.

In 1997, Tyson infamously bit the ear of opponent Evander Holyfield during a fight, resulting in his being disqualified. He was fined $3 million and suspended from boxing for 15 months.

In 1999, Tyson fought again for the heavyweight title but was defeated by Lennox Lewis. He retired from boxing in 2005 but made a comeback in 2006, winning two fights before losing to Kevin McBride in 2005. He retired for good after that loss.

As of 2022, Mike Tyson’s net worth is estimated to be $10 million.

Boxing Style Of Mike Tyson

Tyson’s boxing style was unique in that he possessed exceptional hand speed, power, accuracy, timing, and athleticism for a heavyweight. His style was often described as an “aggressive counter-puncher”. As such, Tyson would usually wait for opponents to make a mistake before capitalizing with precise combinations, delivered at blistering speed. He would stand close to his opponents, often backing them against the ropes, and unleash a series of punches with combinations usually starting with a left uppercut followed by a right cross.

Many boxing analysts consider Tyson’s destructive power to have derived from his combination of speed, timing, accuracy, footwork, and inside fighting. Tyson’s style of boxing was often compared to that of another former heavyweight champion, Rocky Marciano.

During his reign as the Undisputed Heavyweight Champion, Tyson popularized the phrase “peek-a-boo” to describe his defensive style. In an era where many fighters (such as James “Buster” Douglas) used excessive head movement and running to avoid punches, Tyson’s style was considered more vintage.

Tyson often employed the bob-and-weave, which he learned from Cus D’Amato. This defense technique was very effective for him because of his great hand speed and reflexes. Although this style is often criticized for making fighters more susceptible to body shots, Tyson was able to avoid most of them because of his great abdominal muscles and reflexes.

Career Earnings Of Mike Tyson

As one of the most popular and well-known boxers in history, it’s no surprise that Mike Tyson has earned a large amount of money from his fights. In fact, Forbes estimates that Tyson has made around $685 million dollars from his boxing career alone.

This doesn’t include any of Tyson’s other earnings, such as from endorsement deals, public appearances, or his acting roles. For example, Tyson has appeared in several movies and TV shows, including The Hangover and Entourage. He also has a successful podcast called Hotboxin with Mike Tyson.

All of these different sources of income have helped to make Mike Tyson one of the richest athletes in the world. As of 2020, Celebrity Net Worth estimates his total net worth to be $10 million dollars.

While this is an impressive amount of money, it’s actually a far cry from what Tyson was once worth. At the height of his career, Tyson was estimated to be worth as much as $400 million dollars. So what happened to cause such a drastic decrease in his net worth?

The main reason for Tyson’s decrease in net worth is due to his poor financial decisions. For example, Tyson has been known to spend large sums of money on expensive cars, jewelry, and houses. He also has a history of gambling and declared bankruptcy in 2003.

Personal Life Of Mike Tyson

Mike Tyson was born on June 30, 1966, in Brooklyn, New York. His mother, Lorna Mae (née Smith), named him after Mike Tyson, the then world heavyweight boxing champion. His father, Jimmy Kirkpatrick, was a small-time street hustler who abandoned his family when Tyson was two years old. Tyson’s biological father died in 1992.

Tyson was raised by his mother and her second husband, Purcell Tyson, whom she married when Tyson was two years old. His stepfather had a profound impact on Tyson, who would later say: “My stepfather is my father … I used to call him dad.” Purcell Tyson was convicted of armed robbery and served time in prison.

Tyson’s mother died six years after his birth when he was just sixteen. Tyson has said that his difficult childhood shaped him into the “angry” person he is today.
