J.Lo, Lady Gaga and : The Net Worths of the Super Bowl’s Richest Halftime Performers
In 2020, more than 98 million pairs of eyes were glued to the television screen watching the world’s most famous, talented and wealthy performers belt out approximately 13 1/2 minutes of songs at the Super Bowl.
While performers like 2017’s headliner, Lady Gaga, rake in more than a million dollars per concert when they’re on tour, they don’t get paid a penny for their Super Bowl appearances. Instead, Super Bowl halftime performers make money from increased sales of music and concert tickets after the game.
While everyone waits in anticipation for The Weeknd’s Super Bowl Halftime Show, here’s a look at the net worths of the richest halftime performers from 1993 to 2020. For those who are deceased, the net worth listed is their net worth at passing. For bands and musical groups, the net worth is calculated based on a sum of the individual members’ net worths.
Even though they don’t get paid for the Super Bowl, these musicians are making bank.
Travis Scott Net Worth: 40 Million
Travis Scott only appeared onstage for roughly 90 seconds during the 2019 halftime show, but he made the most of his time. The rapper — after being introduced by a “SpongeBob Squarepants” video clip — entered the stadium via an augmented-reality comet to perform his hit “Sicko Mode” while surrounded by flames.
Following his performance, sales of “Sicko Mode” increased 80%, Billboard reported.
Missy Elliott Net Worth: 50 Million
If you thought the dancing sharks, beach balls and palm trees were the pinnacles of the 2015 Super Bowl XLIX halftime show, you hadn’t seen anything yet. As the lights went down on bikini-clad frolickers on Katy Perry’s island, blue mist surrounded a mysterious silhouette that left some viewers perplexed.
Social media blew up with inquiries from the younger generation asking who it was. Grammy-winning artist Missy Elliott hadn’t released an album in 10 years while she worked on writing and producing. In the nearly three minutes it took Missy Elliott to work through a medley of “Get Ur Freak On,” “Work It” and “Lose Control,” she made a new generation of fans. Elliott’s music downloads and sales exploded nearly 1,000% in the days following the show.
Lenny Kravitz Net Worth: 50 Million
Katy Perry’s girl-on-fire dress and grand entrance on the back of a 28-foot-long, metallic lion wowed during the 2015 Super Bowl XLIX halftime show.
Lenny Kravitz looked right at home next to Perry in her 15,000 patent leather 3D flame dress. But Perry’s Swarovski crystal-studded shoes weren’t the only bling on stage.
Kravitz strutted to the mic to belt out the opening lyrics of “I Kissed a Girl“dressed in shredded Hedi Slimane jeans and a black Saint Laurent motorcycle jacket. Beneath it all, he wore a gold mesh tank top designed by Natalia Fedner.
Patti LaBelle Net Worth: 50 Million
The 1995 Super Bowl halftime show was produced by Disney to promote its new Indiana Jones Adventure ride at Disneyland. Criticized as being one of the worst halftime shows of all time, the show featured over-the-top Indiana Jones-themed theatrics and vocal performances by Patti LaBelle and Tony Bennett.
Given the lackluster response, it should be no surprise that the performance didn’t lead to increased sales for LaBelle or any of the others onstage that year, Billboard reported.
Tanya Tucker Net Worth: 60 Million
In 1994, the Super Bowl halftime show went country with a lineup that included Tanya Tucker, Clint Black, Travis Tritt and The Judds. It’s one of the few times the genre was highlighted during the show — the only other time was Shania Twain’s performance in 2003.
Tom Petty Net Worth (Deceased): 95 Million
The lights went down in the stadium at the beginning of the 2008 Super Bowl XLII halftime show, revealing the outline of a heart-shaped stage. A large, lighted arrow rolled across the field to signal the start of Tom Petty The Heartbreakers’ opening number, “American Girl.”
Blowing through a medley of his greatest hits paid off for Tom Petty The Heartbreakers. Reeling in a new generation of fans, digital downloads of songs he performed rose more than 150%. Petty’s albums “Greatest Hits” and “Through the Years” increased in sales by 196% and 240%, respectively.
Stevie Wonder Net Worth: 110 Million
Stevie Wonder’s first halftime show appearance was in 1994 as a “special guest” during the finale. He then headlined the show five years later in 1999 alongside Gloria Estefan. Wonder entered the arena while driving a car and singing “Sir Duke” for this memorable performance.
The Black Eyed Peas Net Worth: 155 Million
Before Fergie quit The Black Eyed Peas, the group performed a selection of their old and new hits at the 2011 Super Bowl halftime show. The performance ended up being gold for their bottom line: The group’s then-current album, “The Beginning,” saw a 35% sales gain in the week ending Feb. 6, 2011. The next week, sales were up 61%, Billboard reported.
Christina Aguilera Net Worth: 160 Million
The new millennium kicked off with a Disney-sponsored halftime show with big-name headliners that included Christina Aguilera, Enrique Iglesias, Phil Collins and Toni Braxton. Despite the star power of 2000’s show, many fans were disappointed that the performers sang little-known ballads instead of their more popular hits. Case in point, Aguilera joined Iglesias for a duet of the song “Celebrate the Future Hand in Hand.”
Pictured: Christina Aguilera attends the BMG Party at the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 23, 2000.
Bruno Mars Net Worth: 175 Million
Bruno Mars was the first performer to appear on a halftime show twice in just two years. His performance at the 2014 Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show was such a hit that he reappeared as a guest act with Coldplay and Beyoncé in the 2016 Super Bowl 50 halftime show.
His performance at the 2014 halftime show started off innocently enough with children holding hands singing an excerpt from “Billionaire.” Mars made his grand entrance on a moving drum stage, beating the skins as an intro to “Locked Out of Heaven.”
Mars’ showmanship once again did not disappoint the audience in the 2016 Super Bowl 50 halftime show. After he performed “Uptown Funk,” he danced with Beyoncé before he ended his set with Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin joining him for a rendition of the song.
The Blues Brothers Net Worth: 182 Million
It might be hard to believe but in 1997, a fictional blues and soul Band headlined the actual Super Bowl halftime show. Dan Aykroyd and the late John Belushi’s brother, Jim Belushi, took the stage as The Blues Brothers for this year’s show, a full 17 years after their group’s eponymous movie was released. Fortunately, they were joined by legitimate musicians on stage — James Brown and ZZ Top — but the performance has still gone down in history as one of the worst halftime shows of all time.
Janet Jackson Net Worth: 190 Million
It’s not often a performer makes a major ripple in the world within seconds. But that’s just what Janet Jackson did in her 2004 performance with Justin Timberlake at the Super Bowl XXXVII halftime show.
Known ever after as Nipplegate, Jackson’s bare breast emerged as Timberlake pulled at the front of her bustier during the last lines of “Rock Your Body.” The move was supposed to reveal a red lace bra, but the garment failed, which brought the term “wardrobe malfunction” into common use.
Although Jackson’s music sales rocketed in the weeks following her performance, the move negatively impacted her career. She was banned from that year’s Grammy Awards and blacklisted from music video and radio channels for several years.
Boyz II Men Net Worth: 200 Million
In 1998, Boyz II Men headlined a halftime show dedicated to the 50th anniversary of Motown. The show opened with a video montage of celebrities — including Whoopi Goldberg and Martha Stewart — singing along to “The Way You Do The Things You Do” before the live show began. In addition to Boyz II Men, the show included performances by The Temptations, Smokey Robinson, Martha and the Vandellas, and Queen Latifah.
Maroon 5 Net Worth: 205 Million
Maroon 5 headlined 2019’s halftime show, opening up with their first-ever single, “Harder To Breathe,” followed by another early hit, “This Love.” The Band — who was joined onstage by both Travis Scott and Big Boi — also sang “Sugar” and “Moves Like Jagger” during a performance that included a number of costume changes by lead singer Adam Levine.
After the performance, sales of Maroon 5’s entire catalog jumped by 488%, Billboard reported.
Britney Spears Net Worth: 215 Million
Britney Spears has always been famous for dancing to the beat of her own drum, even back in her days as a child actor. And during the 2001 “The Kings of Rock and Pop” extravaganza at the Super Bowl XXXV halftime show, Spears showed her own style when she joined Aerosmith, ‘N Sync, Nelly and Mary J. Blige onstage.
The character Spears portrayed, Missy Who Was Ready to Play, was wearing that famous arm sock that caused a fashion commotion. Countless Spears wannabes chopped the toes off tube socks the next day and donned them on their arms, and it wasn’t long before Urban Outfitters and other fashion houses picked up the trend. The fad died out, but you can still buy arm warmers online today.
The Who Net Worth: 235 Million
The two remaining members of The Who, Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend took the stage for a pyrotechnics-filled rock ‘n’ roll halftime show in 2010. The 12-minute performance included a number of their top hits like “Won’t Get Fooled Again.”
The performance boosted sales of the Band’s “Greatest Hits” album: Sales rose to 8,000 (up 102%) the week of the Super Bowl, and the following week, they jumped to 14,000 (up 84%), Billboard reported.
Diana Ross Net Worth: 250 Million
Diana Ross is one of the few artists who actually sang live during her Super Bowl performance. The former Supreme put on a 12-minute solo show in 1996 that included nine wardrobe changes and a dramatic exit via helicopter.
Ross included two new songs in her performance — a cover of Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” and an original song, “Take Me Higher” — off her then-current “Take Me Higher” album. The album sold 3,000 units the week after the show, an increase of 74%, Billboard reported.
Justin Timberlake Net Worth: 250 Million
At the 2004 Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show, Justin Timberlake became momentarily infamous for having a hand — quite literally — in Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction.
Timberlake ascended the stage as Jackson completed “Rhythm Nation” to perform a duet of his hit “Rock Your Body,” the show’s finale. At the song’s concluding lyric, “I bet I’ll have you naked by the end of this song,” the history-making wardrobe malfunction happened.
Despite the controversy, Timberlake was invited back as a headlining performer in 2018. Donning a camouflage suit, Timberlake played a medley of his past and present hits, including “SexyBack” and “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” as well as a spirited tribute to Prince.
Phil Collins Net Worth: 260 Million
As part of 2000’s Disney-themed halftime show, Phil Collins sang the theme from “Tarzan.” Other performers that year included Christina Aguilera, Enrique Iglesias, Toni Braxton and Tina Turner.
Prince Net Worth (Deceased): 300 Million
The 2007 Pepsi Super Bowl XLI halftime show featuring headliner Prince began with pyrotechnic flames shooting into the sky. Queen’s “We Will Rock You” got the hearts and feet of viewers pounding in rhythm. After another burst of pyrotechnics around the stage, the lights dimmed to Prince’s voice intoning, “Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life.”
Dressed in a teal suit and coral shirt, Prince captivated the audience with a medley of three of his hits, “Let’s Go Crazy,” “1999” and “Baby I’m a Star.” The real surprise came when he switched from his own songs to pay homage to other artists’ classics.
Prince transformed “Proud Mary” by Creedence Clearwater Revival, “All Along the Watchtower” by Bob Dylan and “Best of You” by Foo Fighters with a style distinctly his own.
Shakira Net Worth: 300 Million
Shakira — along with Jennifer Lopez — headlined the Super Bowl halftime show in 2020. Several artists reportedly turned down the opportunity to perform in protest of the NFL’s treatment of Colin Kaepernick, but Shakira defended her decision to participate, according to The Guardian.
“I think it’s the right thing to do for the Latino community because we’ve also been through so much in Trump’s America,” she said. “It’s an opportunity to celebrate our culture.”
Lady Gaga Net Worth: 320 Million
As the headlining act for the 2017 Super Bowl LII halftime show, Lady Gaga was no stranger to the Super Bowl — you might remember her singing the national anthem at the 2016 Super Bowl LI.
While she killed her rendition of the national anthem, her halftime performance will surely be remembered as one of the greatest of all time. Gaga began by jumping off the roof, and through a series of costume changes and pyrotechnic displays, sang her way through both high-energy hits like “Poker Face” and soulful ballads like “Million Reasons.” She ended her set by jumping off the stage — while catching a football, of course.
All of Gaga’s prep for the show paid off in a big way. She sold roughly 150,000 digital albums and songs in the U.S. on the day of her performance, an increase of more than 1,000% compared to the day before, Billboard reported.
Katy Perry Net Worth: 330 Million
Katy Perry made her grand entrance at the 2015 Super Bowl XLIX halftime show singing her hit “Roar” on a 16-foot-high lion puppet that weighed nearly 1,600 pounds. But it was a shark that stole the show. “Left Shark’s” free-frolicking moves seemed random and out of sync with “Right Shark’s” tight moves, which made the clip go viral.
Perry’s 12 1/2-minute performance included four wardrobe changes. From 20-carat diamond earrings to more than 22,000 Swarovski crystals bedecking her dresses, microphones and shoes, Perry’s designer Jeremy Scott delivered the fashion bling for which she’s known.
Coldplay Net Worth: 390 Million
Coldplay headlined the Super Bowl 50 halftime show in 2016, which also included performances by Bruno Mars, Beyoncé and Mark Ronson. The whole crowd got to be involved in the performance, holding up placards that created designs and phrases across the entire stadium during the show.
Following the Super Bowl, sales of Coldplay’s full discography jumped 365% in the U.S., and the Band’s latest album, “A Head Full of Dreams,” rose up in the Billboard 200 chart from No. 16 to No. 4, Forbes reported.
Jennifer Lopez Net Worth: 400 Million
Jennifer Lopez took the stage for 2020’s Super Bowl halftime show alongside Shakira. The multihyphenate star told Variety that she hoped the performance would be a unifying moment for America.
“I think it’s important in this day and age for two Latin women to be standing on that stage — when Latinos are being treated a certain way in this country or looked at a certain way — to show that we have a really specific and beautiful culture and worth and value, and we bring something to this country that’s necessary,” she said. “I think that’s going to be an amazing moment. That night, I want it to be a celebration of who we are — all of us, because we’re in this together.”
Shania Twain Net Worth: 400 Million
Shania Twain opened up the halftime show in 2003 during Super Bowl XXXVII, performing “Man I Feel Like a Woman” and “Up!,” off her album of the same name that had just been released two months prior. The performance proved to be good publicity for the album — it sold 67,000 units, an increase of 41%, in the week after the show, Billboard reported.
Aerosmith Net Worth: 490 Million
The 2001 Super Bowl marked a new direction for the halftime show. In previous years, there was less of a FOCUS on current artists and more of an emphasis on beloved stars from the past, Billboard reported.
The 2001 show was a pop fan’s dream come true with a mashup of hits performed by some of the biggest acts of the time: Britney Spears, ‘N Sync, Aerosmith, Nelly and Mary J. Blige. Aerosmith sang some of their most popular songs during the show, including “I Don’t Want To Miss a Thing” and “Walk This Way” — the big finale that included all the performers in one iconic halftime show moment. The Band also used the platform as an invaluable promotion opportunity by performing “Jaded,” the lead single from their upcoming album “Just Push Play,” which was due out the following month.
Beyoncé Net Worth: 500 Million
Posing before a pyrotechnic display of herself, Beyoncé opened the 2013 Super Bowl XLVII halftime show by belting out a snippet of “Love on Top.” She packed nine of her hit songs into the 14-minute show, surrounded by dramatic special effects and tightly choreographed backup dancers.
Beyoncé‘s former Destiny’s Child bandmates joined her onstage for three songs. The reunited trio rolled through fan favorites including “Independent Women Part 1” and “Bootylicious” before finishing with Beyoncé‘s own “Single Ladies.”
Beyoncé returned to the Super Bowl stage in 2016 for a guest appearance. She performed her newly released single “Formation,” danced with Bruno Mars to “Crazy in Love” and joined Mars and Coldplay’s Chris Martin for a rendition of “Uptown Funk.”
Gloria Estefan Net Worth: 500 Million
Gloria Estefan has actually performed as a halftime show headliner twice — first in 1992 and again in 1999. The 1992 show was a winter-themed production featuring ice dancers, while 1999’s halftime show was all about dance — swing dancers, tap dancers and salsa dancers were all part of the spectacle. For the latter show, Estefan was joined onstage by Stevie Wonder, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy and Savion Glover.
Michael Jackson Net Worth (Deceased): 500 Million
Michael Jackson’s 1993 performance during Super Bowl XXVII is credited as the origin of the superstar-packed halftime show. Prior to his performance, the show was more about marching bands and card stunts, Billboard reported.
The King of Pop set a high bar for this new halftime show format. He began his set by letting the tension build for 90 seconds as he stood motionless on the stage, and then went on to perform an energy-packed medley of five songs: “Billie Jean,” “Jam,” “Black and White,” “We Are the World” and “Heal the World.”
Jackson took a chance as the first performer to appear in this star-focused halftime show, and the gamble paid off. Sales of “Dangerous” increased 83% for one of its best sales week ever, and the album rose from No. 88 to No. 41 on the Billboard 200 chart. The album sold over 50,000 units for the next six straight weeks, Billboard reported.
Bruce Springsteen Net Worth: 500 Million
Bruce Springsteen opened the Super Bowl XLIII halftime show by addressing the viewers at home, not in the stadium. “Ladies and gentlemen, for the next 12 minutes, we’re going to bring the righteous and mighty power of The E Street Band into your beautiful home!” He advised viewers to step back from the guacamole dip, put the chicken fingers down and turn the volume up.
The Boss broke into “Tenth Avenue Freeze Out,” and about two minutes into it took a running slide toward the camera and crashed into it. Springsteen used a runway to get up close with the crowd while fireworks shot off in time to the music.
Springsteen’s Super Bowl appearance coincided with the release of “Working on a Dream” earlier that week. The album landed in the top spot on the Billboard 200 chart for the week ending Feb. 1, with a total of 224,000 albums sold.
Madonna Net Worth: 850 Million
Madonna entered the 2012 Super Bowl XLVI halftime show on an elaborate chariot borne by a parade of marching Roman warriors. Twelve minutes later, she disappeared in a dramatic plume of smoke. Between the two events, she held millions of viewers spellbound.
Viewers saw Madonna transform from exotic princess to cheerleader to choirmaster and more as she danced and sang with guests Nicki Minaj, M.I.A. and Redfoo. She rode a bejeweled human serpent, danced with a tightrope trickster and vogued with a contortionist and break-dancing lyre player.
She also debuted a song from her then-upcoming album “MDNA” — “Give Me All Your Luvin’” — with Minaj and M.I.A. The album received 50,000 preorders by the end of Super Bowl Sunday. Her appearance boosted her other music sales, too. Her older albums saw a rise of 410% and fans downloaded 115,000 copies of her new single by week’s end.
The Rolling Stones Net Worth: 1 Billion
No special effects were necessary at the 2006 Super Bowl XL halftime show. The Rolling Stones did what they do best — played rock and roll.
All eyes were on Mick Jagger as he shook and wiggled down the giant, tongue-shaped stage “licking” into the audience. The Band played just three songs during its 12-minute set. The Stones kicked things off with “Start Me Up” and then rolled into “Rough Justice” during the first half of their performance. They devoted the second half entirely to the crowd-pleasing song “Satisfaction,” which lasted more than six minutes.
The Rolling Stones saw only a minimal increase in music sales — around 9% — immediately following their performance. However, the performance coincided with their “A Bigger Bang” tour, which became the highest-grossing tour of all time in 2007.
Paul McCartney Net Worth: 1.2 Billion
The 2005 Super Bowl XXXIX halftime show opened with a decidedly retro feel as Paul McCartney launched into “Drive My Car” from his days with The Beatles. Other oldies but goodies included “Get Back” and the set’s finale “Hey Jude.” In between, McCartney sandwiched a favorite from his Wings days, “Live and Let Die.”
McCartney was no stranger to the Super Bowl. Although 2005 was his first time headlining the event, he sang “Freedom” at the 2002 Super Bowl XXXVI pregame show. At halftime, he harmonized with Fox Sports broadcaster Terry Bradshaw — the duo belted out a short rendition of “A Hard Day’s Night.”
U2 Net Worth: 1.6 Billion
Had Janet Jackson only said yes to her invitation to sing at the 2002 Super Bowl XXXVI, Nipplegate might never have happened. However, she didn’t feel comfortable headlining the halftime show after the 9/11 attacks happened just a few months before.
U2 was a natural choice for the NFL’s top marketing executive, John Collins. Shortly after Jackson declined, he watched U2 play at Madison Square Garden. As the Band performed one of many encores that night, the names of those killed in the terror attacks just weeks before scrolled across the arena’s domed ceiling. It was riveting as people started recognizing victims’ names.
U2 brought the concept with them to the Super Bowl XXXVI halftime show. After they opened with “Beautiful Day,” a towering screen behind the stage scrolled the names of those killed while the Band rolled through “MLK” and “Where the Streets Have No Name.”
The scrolling came to an end when the screen suddenly dropped down, mirroring the World Trade Center’s collapse. The emotional set concluded with Bono opening his jacket to reveal the American flag on its inside lining.

Watch: Mr. Vegas Gives Lady Saw A Special Send Off With An Online Funeral Service
Mr. Vegas came up with a novel way to do away with an old friend last weekend. He hosted an online funeral service for the once revered Queen of Dancehall Lady Saw.
That’s right Lady Saw has been officially laid to rest. Watch below.
Minister Marion Hall, gave up her persona Lady Saw, in 2015 and shocked many of her fans after she declared that she would “dedicate her life to the Lord”.
Over 14,000 people attended the online ‘funeral’ for Lady Saw which was held last Saturday 11th. Mr Vegas, whose real name is Clifford Smith organised the service which was streamed for fans on
Mr. Vegas took the ceremony very seriously and donned a black suit while greeting online viewers and performing various last rites.
“Tonight we’re here to pay homage to one of the greatest of all time. The reason why we’re here to pay homage is because that artiste was killed by God spiritually… The greatest cannot go out like that, the greatest must be sent off with a beautiful tribute from us, her peers, so tonight we pay homage.”
When he began the ceremony he played one of her earlier songs called Find A Good Man. Mr. Vegas played a plethora of other hits that Lady Saw had become known for including Give Me The Reason, Heels On, If Him Lef, Man Ah Di Least, No Long Talking and the mega-hit Sycamore Tree.
It’s not sure what Mr. Vegas intended to achieve, whether he was in support of Hall’s decision to follow her spiritual path or if he wanted her Lady Saw persona to live on because he advised fans who attended online to keep streaming her music.
He said: “Bob Marley still a get royalties, Peter Tosh still a get royalties or his estate… Dennis Brown estate still getting royalties… it doesn’t mean that somebody become a Christian and nah perform dem songs anymore people should stop playing their songs or buying their music.”
He added: “When yuh buy Lady Saw music, when yuh play the music, she get royalties. Mi know she nah go send back the cheque to unno… It mek she still eat, and maybe one day God will send her back but for now we live with the legacy, we appreciate the legacy…”
He constantly praised the Lady Saw character as he kept spinning her hits. He also played audio clips of Hall denouncing Lady Saw and stating that she will not be returning to the Dancehall lifestyle.
The session is thoroughly enjoyable but it seems at points that Mr. Vegas is mocking Hall’s choice to leave behind Lady Saw, even though he also seems to want to help her make money. In the end, it seems he’s trying to make the point that even though she’s chosen another way, it doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have to be paid. He ends the ceremony by driving home this point.
Fans who tuned in had varying opinions about Vegas’ funeral attempt.
One fan said: “How can we deny that God blessed her with her dancehall talent that she used to help so much kids,” while another fan didn’t agree and said: “Lady Saw hearing God right now, this music is God’s voice. How she left her God frequency to go on this dumb down frequency and can hear God.just pure cognitive dissonance mentality.”
Most of the fans were appreciative of hearing some Dancehall classics and some reminisced about where they were when they heard some of her songs like this fan who said: “When I was a New York cab driver working night, Lady Saw and Tanya Stephens music straight kept me awake….they saved my life.”
Mr. Vegas has constantly called on Lady Saw to return and take up her rightful place in dancehall. Despite being recently denied a United States O-1 visa which she had previously qualified for as Lady Saw, the Minister has no plans to return to the industry.

Whitney Houston’s Net Worth: Her Houses, Cars, Career and
Whitney Houston was one of the most successful and iconic recording artists of all time. Her death in 2012 was a huge loss to the music industry, and her legacy lives on through her music and her fans. In this article, we will take a look at Whitney Houston’s net worth, how she became rich, and her early life and career.
Whitney Houston’s Net Worth
At the time of her death, Whitney Houston’s net worth was actually around negative 20 million. She had amassed a large amount of debt through her real estate properties as well as a lavish lifestyle. However, during the peak of her career, it is said that Whitney Houston’s net worth was around 40 million.
How Did Whitney Houston Get Rich?
Houston’s road to riches began in the 1980s when she burst onto the music scene with her debut album “Whitney Houston.” The album was a massive commercial success, selling over 25 million copies worldwide and earning her multiple Grammy nominations.
From there, Houston continued to release hit after hit, including “I Will Always Love You” and “I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me),” both of which topped the charts and cemented her status as a global music superstar.
In 2001, she inked a massive 100 million recording contract with Sony. However, she only ever earned 40 million from this contract since her career saw a downswing following the signing of the contract, with her albums seeing less commercial success than they had in previous years.

Who’s the richest ‘Selling Sunset’ cast member? Their net worths are as glamorous as their listings
The show is full of wealth and excess, so we all know that the Selling Sunset cast net worth numbers are just as decadent and luxurious as the Oppenheim Group’s listings.
Fans of the Netflix hit are well aware of how commissions work on Selling Sunset. Super fans even know who is Selling Sunset’s highest earner. But does anyone know how the realtors stack up against one another?
As you might’ve imagined, both Brett and Jason Oppenheim, who own the LA realty company at the center of the series, have worked their way up to very handsome salaries. They’re each worth a whopping 50 million. Phew!
Curious about their staffers, from Chrishell to Mary? They’re all doing very well for themselves.
‘Selling Sunset’ cast net worth: Who’s on top?
The internet is abuzz with each realtor’s earnings from the show and their personal ventures. (We surely don’t need to fill you in on where you can buy Emma’s empanadas, right?!) Here’s where the stars’ bank accounts reportedly stack up in 2023:
- Bre Tiesi: 300,000 to 6 million
- Chrishell Stause: 5 million
- Vanessa Villela: 5 million
- Nicole Young: 3 million
- Heather Rae El Moussa: 3 million
- Emma Hernan: 3 million
- Mary Fitzgerald: 2-1 million
- Christine Quinn: 2 million
- Davina Potratz: 2 million
- Amanza Smith: 1 million
- Maya Vander: 1 million
- Chelsea Lazkani: 500,000
- Romain Bonnet: 500,000
Bre Tiesi: 300,000 to 6 million
Accounts on the internet differ when it comes to Bre Tiesi’s net worth, with a very wide range of 300,000 to 6 million.
She’s fairly new to the real estate game, having had her license since 2017 but only becoming a realtor full-time in 2021. However, do not underestimate Miss Tiesi—she’s proud of how well she’s doing for herself, even intimidating the other O Group ladies with her impressive earnings in her first year alone. When Chelsea tries to give her (unsolicited) advice, Bre reveals she sold a cool 20 million in her first year in real estate (for comparison’s sake, Chelsea sold 9.2 million).
Before her real estate career, she was a model. Speaking about her career switch-up, she told PEOPLE magazine: “I wanted to transition out of modeling and start setting myself up for a long-term career. I started taking it more seriously and tapping into my network, and that’s when I started making some high-figure sales.
“As amazing as modeling was as an industry for me, I was just kind of over it. You know, I’m 31 now. So I’m like, it’s time to be a big girl!”
Nicole Young: 3 million
According to her bio, Nicole is the longest-standing and top-producing realtor at the O Group—not too shabby! It’s no wonder her net worth stands at 3 million.
Christine Quinn: 2 million
Okay, so Christine may not be on the actual show anymore (sob), but she’ll always be a Selling Sunset gal in our eyes. And it’ll probably come as no surprise that the Netflix hit’s villain is one of the top earners among the group, with a net worth of around 2 million.
She has made most of her cash from her real estate work, but she’s also written a book, and has a number of partnerships with fashion brands, including a line of glamorous heels with ShoeDazzle.
Oh, and there’s also the fact that her husband Christian is a retired tech entrepreneur worth a cool 20 million. Casual!
Chrishell Stause: 5 million
Former new girl on the block Chrishell quickly made a name for herself at The Oppenheim Group, and it looks as though it’s paid off, with a whopping reported net worth of 5 million.
According to StyleCaster, her impressive fortune has (obvs) been won through her work as a realtor, via the show, a book named ‘Under Construction’, her previous career in soap operas, and TV appearances, such as her stint on Dancing With The Stars.
Speaking about her success, Chrishell revealed to Page Six that her less-than-fortunate financial background means she is grateful for everything that comes her way now. “I was homeless a few times in my life and it was really hard growing up, but now I’m super grateful about everything,” she told them. “I’m still really cheap!”
Heather Rae El Moussa: 3 million
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Heather Rae Young (or Heather Rae El Moussa, as she is now known following her marriage to Tarek El Moussa) is worth a huge 3 million.
Not only does Heather earn her cash from Selling Sunset and her career as a realtor, but she also has an HGTV show with her husband, The Flipping El Moussas, where the pair flip properties together.
She’s also had small acting jobs in the past, and has taken part in numerous social media deals, such as the pregnancy test brand First Response, which is how she announced she was expecting her first child.
Chelsea Lazkani: 500,000
Chelsea Lazkani was the new gal to hit the series in season 5, buddying up with Christine while she sussed out her new job role and the dynamics of the entire group.
But it wasn’t her first foray into real estate. The mom-of-two used to sell properties for Rodeo Realty, an agency based in Beverly Hills. As of now, her net worth is said to be 500,000. Her husband, who heads up a media agency, is also said to be worth the same.
Mary Fitzgerald: 2-1 million
Mary Fitzgerald’s net worth is disputed, but most outlets agree that it sits somewhere between 1 million and 2 million. Jason and Brett’s right-hand woman has been with The Oppenheim Group since its inception, and in the last season of Selling Sunset, she was made Vice President of the organization—so we imagine that, in reality, her net worth could actually be much higher than this!
As is the case for many of the Selling Sunset ladies, Mary’s net worth is primarily thanks to her hugely successful work as a realtor—which isn’t surprising given the huge listings we usually see her sell on the show.
Maya Vander: 1 million
Arguably the most mature member of the Selling Sunset gang is Maya—who never fails to make us smile as she observes the never-ending drama from afar. And while she’s sadly not making a return to the show for season 6, that doesn’t mean she’s not getting her bag!
The new mom-of-three (she just gave birth to a baby girl, Emma!) has a reported net worth of 1 million. That’s cash from her work at The Oppenheim Group, as well as her job selling real estate in Miami, where she now lives full-time. She also has her own real estate course, which we’re sure brings in plenty of dollar bills, too.
Amanza Smith: 1 million
Though she’s a relative newbie to the world of real estate, working previously as an interior designer, Amanza has quickly racked up the dough and is now said to be worth around 1 million.
Her primary job is at The Oppenheim Group (and on Selling Sunset, obvs), but she also is still thought to work on interior design projects.
Emma Hernan: 3 million
Emma is another of the Selling Sunset ladies with multiple streams of income, including her work as a realtor, and her frozen food business Emma Leigh Co. (who could forget those empanadas?).

This means that Emma is said to be worth a very respectable 3 million, up from 1.5 million last year. She also describes herself as an angel investor, and revealed previously that she began investing in stocks at a young age, allowing her to build up her wealth over time.
Davina Potratz: 2 million
Davina may not have sold her 75 million house, but she’s still got a very healthy bank balance despite that! It’s said that Davina has a net worth of around 2 million.
Not only is Davina a realtor, but she’s also a real estate broker, meaning she can earn double the amount from deals selling properties.
Prior to her work in property, she was also a model, travelling across the world for jobs, so it’s likely that at least some of her earnings come from that, too.
Romain Bonnet: 500,000
Okay, so he’s not part of the main cast, but Romain Bonnet is one of the most featured husbands in the Selling Sunset universe, so we couldn’t not include him in our round-up of the Selling Sunset cast net worth.
Much of Romain’s storyline (alongside his wife, Mary), has centered around his career, which in seasons 5 and 6 saw him project manage lots of The Oppenheim Group’s construction on various properties. Because of this, he’s said to have a very healthy net worth of around 500,000.
Vanessa Villela: 5 million
One of the latest additions to The O Group is said to have one of the highest Selling Sunset cast net worths there is! Vanessa is said to be worth around 5 million, in part due to her real estate work, but mostly as a result of her work as an actress on numerous Mexican TV shows.
It looks like these realtors and reality TV stars—especially Chrishell and Vanessa, at a cool 5 million each—are doing quite nicely for themselves while helping people find their homes in Los Angeles.
