About Us

The idea for CelebrityNetWorth.com (CNW) was born in the early part of 2008 after a google search for "Larry David net worth" returned no useful web results. After performing a dozen similar searches, we still could not find a quality website covering the day-to-day wealth and finances of celebrities.

A small team of curious individuals came together to launch CNW in October 2008. We actually launched using our original domain name "celebnetworth.com". The full domain "celebritynetworth.com" was acquired a year later at auction for $1,000.

Our data is rooted in financial analysis, market research, and inside sources that we have meticulously developed over the last decade to maintain accuracy and breadth of knowledge. At a minimum, each net worth estimate on CNW takes into account known salaries, real estate holdings, divorce records, royalties, lawsuits, and endorsements. Our estimates incorporate a proprietary formula that removes estimated taxes, manager's fees, agent fees, and lifestyle expenses.

The results are fact checked and confirmed by a team of editors and industry insiders. We work diligently to ensure that our numbers are the most accurate and current celebrity finance information you will find anywhere.
