Gene Simmons Net Worth 2022
The Israeli-American musician and actor, Gene Simmons, is a co-founder of the rock band Kiss and has earned a fortune from his music. His estimated net worth is $400 million and he is one of the richest musicians in the world. Aside from his musical career, he is also an entrepreneur and an actor.
While he was still in college, Gene joined a band called Long Island Sounds. He would later join the Bullfrog Beer band and change his name to Gene Simmons. Before joining Kiss, he was an assistant to the editor of Vogue. In addition, he has been involved in various projects, including managing Liza Minnelli’s music career and starting his own record label.
He is now married to Canadian actress Shannon Tweed. They have two children. Their family was featured on A&E reality series Gene Simmons Family Jewels. And they have been supporters of many charities. Some of their other causes include the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
As a result of his success, Gene Simmons became a rich and famous celebrity. He owns a house in Beverly Hills, California and a mansion in Henderson, Nevada. He also has a small mansion in Malibu. Besides, he has a wealth from his investments.
Gene Simmons is famous for his playboy personality, and he has also dated other celebrities. For example, he was once in a long-term relationship with Cher, and he was rumored to have been with Diana Ross. Nevertheless, he has been married to Shannon Tweed for almost five years.
Since he is an artist, singer, bassist and songwriter, he has been paid well for his work. According to Forbes, the total amount of money he has made so far is estimated to be between $45 and 55 million a year. But if he is lucky enough to have a career in film or television, his earnings will be much higher.
One of the things that he has done to add to his wealth is to purchase several high-end homes in Beverly Hills and Malibu. He purchased a 16,500 square foot mansion in 1984 for $1,327,500. Then, he bought a home in Malibu in March of 2021. There is an undeveloped area next to the mansion, which he plans to use for his own private estate.
Among his other investments, he purchased 130 different types of trees for $2 million. Moreover, he is a philanthropist, as he has founded a charity to help children around the world.
In addition to his business and musical endeavors, he has been active on social media. He also enjoys reading comic books and science fiction. Although he has never been a famous movie star, he has appeared in a number of films and TV shows. He has even lent his likeness to various video games and animated shows. Nonetheless, it’s unlikely that he is the highest paid actor in the world.
It is estimated that he has been spending $15 to 17 million of his personal income on his investments. If he continues this way, he is likely to be among the world’s richest rock stars.
