Denzel Washington has gorgeous mansions in Zimbabwe, and I checked his net worth and was surprised to learn that despite all of his hit movies, he is worth $250 million.

As of 2021, Denzel Washington’s net worth 2021 is $250 million dollars. He has gotten over 96 nominations including all of the Grammys, Golden Globes, Emmys, Tony Awards, and of course the holy Academy Awards, and won 39 of 96 nominations.

2. Ed Sheeran, $210 Million

Ed Sheeran (Edward Christopher Sheeran) is the richest UK star under the age of 30 – with an estimated worth of $210 million.

The 29-year-old topped Heat magazine’s annual guide to the UK and Ireland’s wealthiest stars aged 30 and under.

Sheeran’s wealth is partly due to his world record-breaking two-year Divide Tour, which saw him play more than 250 shows to more than seven million fans since March 2017.

Ed Sheeran falls below the net worth of Kennedy Agyapong making him (the Ghanaian MP) wealthy more than the musician.

3. 50 Cent, -$32.5 million

Sadly, the once-successful rapper, whose songs were constantly played on TV, has found himself in massive debt. This is mostly due to bad business decisions, leaving 50 Cent with a shocking -$32.5 million net worth. In 2015, he had an impressive net worth of $155 million, but just one year later he was left bankrupt, owing $32.5 million after a succession of failed business ventures.

His clothing brand, G-Unit Clothing, was initially popular but suffered severe losses in 2008. Moreover, the rapper was overspending on everything from personal grooming to luxury cars, all contributing to his dire financial situation.

4. Nicolas Cage – $25 million

Nicolas Kim Coppola, professionally known as Nicolas Cage, is an American filmmaker and actor. He has been nominated for some of the most coveted cinematic awards and bagged a Golden Globe Award and Academy Award. Nicolas Cage has starred in some of the best-selling movies like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

5. Pamela Anderson – $12 million

Pamela Denise Anderson is a Canadian-American TV personality, model, and actress famous for her roles in Baywatch between 1992 and 1997. She was selected as the Playmate of the Month for Playboy magazine in February 1990. In 1997, she bagged the Golden Apple Award and the Golden Raspberry Award.

Another reality star who fell on hard times, the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star filed for bankruptcy in 2011. However, both she and her husband Joe Giudice were indicted in 2013 on 39 counts of conspiracy to commit mail fraud, bank fraud, wire fraud, and a host of other charges.

As of February 2017, Giudice had paid off her $414,588 restitution related to her charges. Despite being one of the poorest celebrities on our list, it isn’t cheap being a “Real Housewives” star and Giudice was recently seen sporting a brand new $90,000 Lexus, a present to herself after serving nearly a year in prison. Her husband is still behind bars.

7. Charlie Sheen – $10 million

Carlos Irwin Estévez, known as Charlie Sheen, is an American actor with more than three decades worth of experience. He was featured in Two and a Half Men, an award-winning sitcom. He also bagged a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor for his participation in ABC’s Spin City.

In 2010, he set a record by being the highest-paid actor, allegedly earning $1.8 million for every Two and a Half Men episode. Nonetheless, Charlie Sheen is one of the celebrities with a low net worth. Currently, Charlie Sheen’s net worth is estimated at $10 million.

8. Toni Braxton – $10 million

Toni Michele Braxton is an American songwriter, singer, pianist, actress, and TV personality. She has sold more than 70 million records worldwide throughout her music career and is one of the highest-selling R&B artists.

However, over the years, she has managed to bounce back, and currently, her net worth is $10 million.

9. DMX Net Worth: -$10 Million

Here’s the recipe that got DMX to the top of the poorest celebrities: Start with 30 million albums sold and then add child support for 15 children and $2 million owed to various creditors like Compass Bank. Throw in a dash of Chapter 13 bankruptcy, and an alleged $0 in the bank, and then add in $2.3 million in restitution for tax evasion. The end result is three of those platinum albums being sold on eBay for a total of $3,000.

10. Mark Hamill Net Worth: $6 Million

There’s a great disturbance in the Force: Although Forbes reported that the “Star Wars” franchise is worth almost $10 billion to its owners at Disney, Hamill isn’t enjoying a huge piece of that pie. In his post-Jedi days, Hamill was a workhorse in the world of animation, famously voicing the Joker across multiple Batman TV series and video games for more than 20 years. Of course, now that Luke Skywalker is back on the silver screen, Hamill’s assets are rising. Variety reported that Mark took home a low-seven-figure salary for 2015’s “The Force Awakens” for a dialogue-free appearance. That figure was expected to rise for 2017’s “The Last Jedi.”

11. Mel B – $6 million

12. Burt Reynolds Net Worth: $5 Million

In 2015, Vanity Fair summed up Burt Reynolds’s situation with the pitch-perfect headline, “Burt Reynolds Isn’t Broke, But He’s Got a Few Regrets.” Five million dollars is nothing to scoff at, but as a celebrity net worth, it does seem low for the star of films ranging from “Deliverance” to “Boogie Nights.” Speaking to Vanity Fair, Reynolds explained how he went from earning $10 million annually to his currently modest net worth: “I’ve lost more money than is possible because I just haven’t watched it … There are a couple of actors who are quite brilliant with the way they’ve handled their money. But they’re not very good actors.”

13. Tyga – $5 million

Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson, famously known as Tyga, is an American rapper, songwriter, singer, TV personality, and actor. Tyga rose to fame in 2008 after signing a recording contract with Young Money Entertainment Cash Money Records. He worked with established artists like Chris Brown and Lil Wayne.

Even though Tyga’s record sales have been abysmal over the years, he has not watched his spending habits, and his debts have been racking up. He once had his Ferrari repossessed. He has also been in and out of court for unpaid taxes.

Are you wondering why Tyga features in this list of the poorest celebrities? Well, his net worth is $5 million.

14. Sinbad Net Worth: $4 Million

In 1996, Sinbad was in “Homeward Bound II,” but by 2013, he was working on a different sort of sequel — his second bankruptcy, following an initial one in 2009. At the time, TMZ reported a roster of debt, including $8.3 million to the IRS, $374,979 to American Express, and $2.3 million to the California Franchise Tax Board. If you want to help Sinbad out, you can still buy a hardcover copy of “Sinbad’s Guide to Life” on Amazon — just don’t follow the financial advice.

15. Kelis Rodgers – $4 million

Kelis Rodgers is an American singer, songwriter, and chef. Having made a debut in the music scene at a young age, she set a record by working with Pharrell Williams and The Neptunes and producers like Calvin Harris. Kelis’ first album, Kaleidoscope, was an international success, and it was certified gold. She sold millions of copies of the album. So far, she has a total of four released albums. Kelis has been recognised at the Grammys Awards, NME Awards, Q Awards, and Brit Awards ceremonies.

What celebrities are now broke? With more than two decades of being in the music scene, releasing bangers, and selling out her records, one would expect Kelis to have earned so much. You would even expect her to be among the richest artists. That is not the case. Her net worth is estimated at $4 million.

16. Amanda Bynes Net Worth: $4 Million

Amanda Bynes grew up in the spotlight, starring in the self-titled “The Amanda Show” on Nickelodeon before graduating to teen comedies like “Easy A” and “What a Girl Wants.” After suffering a very public mental breakdown in 2013, the child star was placed under psychiatric hold and temporary conservatorship over her medical care and finances. Lately, she’s been attending fashion school and staying out of trouble, and has hinted at hopefully making a comeback soon. She regained control of her finances in 2017 after a judge deemed her to be “doing so much better.”

17. Chris Tucker Net Worth: $3 Million

The star of “Fifth Element” and “Rush Hour,” Chris Tucker was once among the highest-paid actors in Hollywood, racking up paychecks of $25 million per picture. However, a string of financial crises — like foreclosing on his $6 million home in 2011, taking a feature film hiatus, and settling a $2.5 million tax lien in 2014 — had a serious effect on his net worth.

Still, Tucker seems happy with being selective, even if he’s not quite as rich as he used to be. As he told the Los Angeles Times in 2015, “I want to get better. I want to do something that excites me, that is different and fun.” For this small-fortuned celebrity, at least, money truly isn’t everything.

18. Mike Tyson Net Worth: $3 Million

Now retired, Mike Tyson earned in excess of $300 million throughout his career as a boxer. Since the late ’80s, though, Iron Mike has grappled with rape charges, jail time, drug problems, excessive spending, and a 2003 bankruptcy. Last year, he told CNN Money, “I didn’t think I’d make it through my 30s.”

19. Andy Dick Net Worth: $3 Million

A comedian and actor, Andy is widely recognized for his self-titled TV show and guest appearances as himself. He has a reputation for being one of Hollywood’s most notorious bad boys with a rap sheet that includes accusations of grand theft and sexual misconduct.

20. Natasha Lyonne Net Worth: $3 Million

Natasha Lyonne began her career at the age of just six as one of the kids on “Pee-Wee’s Playhouse.” Like many child actors, growing up in Hollywood wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. After starring in “American Pie” and “Slums of Beverly Hills,” Lyonne admitted herself to a New York hospital in 2005 under a fake name and was treated for a number of conditions from heroin addiction to a collapsed lung and heart infection.

Since becoming a fan-favorite on the hit Netflix comedy “Orange Is the New Black,” her career and finances are back on the up and up.

21. Danny Bonaduce Net Worth: $3 Million

22. Stephen Baldwin, -$2 million

The actor and father-in-law of Justin Bieber has been in financial difficulty for over a decade. Baldwin and his wife lost their New York home to foreclosure, having incurred a massive $2 million debt. The house was put up for auction and sold back to the bank for just $100.

23. Aaron Carter Net Worth: -$2 Million

Aaron Carter has made recent headlines for reasons including his sexuality and weight loss, and his -$2 million net worth is a whole other story. Speaking to the Huffington Post in 2016, Carter said that he had made more than $200 million by the time he was 18, but financial mistakes like buying ostentatious houses and neglecting to pay taxes cost him millions.

Still, Carter isn’t exactly living life in the poor house. He told the Post, “I’m not broke. I mean, I don’t make all the money in the world right now, but I’m doing the best that I can.”

24. MC Hammer Net Worth: $1.5 Million

The 1990s truly were “Hammer time.” Riding high on a fortune of over $25 million, Hammer had a 17-car garage, a swimming pool in the shape of his famous puffy genie pants, and a staff of 200 he was paying about $6.2 million annually. So, how did Hammer’s net worth shrink to a post-bankruptcy $1.5 million? The answer lies in one word: sustainability.

25. Randy Quaid Net Worth: -$1 Million

If you’ve seen “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” “Days of Thunder” or “Independence Day,” you might have a soft spot for Randy Quaid. However, the Golden Globe winner and Oscar nominee has fallen on some hard (and weird) times over the years, often on the run from law enforcement for racking up unpaid hotel tabs of $10,000 apiece. Randy and his wife Evi claim that the root of their problem lies with the “Hollywood Star Whackers,” a secret underground cult that defames or assassinates movie stars as means of embezzling their fortunes. Now that’s a story worthy of a blockbuster.

26. Kelly Rutherford Net Worth: $1 Million

Kelly Rutherford began her career in the soap opera world, bouncing between TV appearances. Best known for her roles in “Melrose Place” and “Gossip Girl,” the actress has had a number of supporting roles both on the big screen and the TV screen.

She filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2013 after a brutal custody battle. A Monaco judge granted Rutherford’s ex-husband full custody of their two children, Hermes and Helena after she refused to return them following a summer vacation in the U.S. She fought for custody for seven years, racking up legal fees that reportedly totaled $1.5 million dollars.

27. Lindsay Lohan – $800,000

Lindsay Dee Lohan is an American singer, songwriter, actress, TV personality, and entrepreneur. She made her debut in acting at the age of ten, and by 1998, she was the star of The Parent Trap, a Walt Disney film. By 2004, she had earned the status of a teen idol. Despite the numerous opportunities, in 2011, Lindsay Lohan nearly declared bankruptcy and was among the poorest celebrities. She managed to bounce back; her net worth currently stands at $800,000.

28. Drake Bell, -$600,000

Bell was much loved on The Amanda Show and Drake & Josh, exhibiting his charming comedic skills. Unlike his far more successful co-star Josh Peck, Drake Bell is in a difficult financial situation. In 2014, he filed for bankruptcy, owing $1.6 million in mortgage repayments.

29. Coolio – $500,000

Back in the 90s, Coolio was the talk of the streets, and everyone jammed to his songs. He made slightly over $4 million from record sales and rose to be a Grammy-winning American rapper.

His debut single, Fantastic Voyage, became an instant hit in 1994, and in 1995, his popularity extended to the screens when he was featured in an episode of The Parent ‘Hood. He secured six Grammy nominations throughout his career in music and film. In 1996, he won the Best Rap Solo Performance for Gangsta’s Paradise.

With such a record, you would have such high expectations in Coolio. However, his net worth does not match the fame he enjoyed and still does. His net worth is estimated at $500,000. According to a booking site, Coolio charges as low as $7,500 for a private performance. Therefore, if you were wondering, who are the cheapest celebrities? Coolio would easily feature in the list.

30. Lindsay Lohan Net Worth: $500,000

Drugs, alcohol, and general debauchery don’t always break the bank for famous celebrities — just look at Charlie Sheen’s $20 million net worth. However, Lindsay Lohan is one star whose financials took a serious hit as a result of her partying. The “Mean Girls” actress’ bank account was seized by the IRS in 2012, bringing her net worth down to a mere $500,000.

31. Evander Holyfield Net Worth: $500,000

During his 20-year boxing career, Evander Holyfield took home an Olympic bronze medal, WBA, WBC, and IBF titles, plus the honor of World Heavyweight Champion an impressive four times. He also took home an estimated $230 million in prize money. However, thanks to some over-the-top spending and a few decades’ worth of IRS issues, foreclosures, and expensive mortgages, Holyfield lost his 54,000-square-foot Georgia mansion, his bronze medal, and many of his other possessions, leaving him with a financial value of just $500,000 — and the realization that nothing lasts forever.

32. Gary Busey Net Worth: -$500,000

Known for his rampant drug use and unfiltered behavior on reality shows like “Celebrity Big Brother,” Gary Busey has suffered his share of media mishaps. Still, the actor works regularly — he had a number of projects in various stages of production in April 2018, according to IMDB. Despite a nearly 50-year career, Busey has suffered some serious financial issues. He filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2012 and owes everyone from Wells Fargo to the UCLA Medical Center, leaving him with a net worth that’s estimated to be anywhere from -$500,000 to -$1 million.

33. Dennis Rodman Net Worth: $500,000

Nowadays, rebound king Dennis Rodman is part of the $500,000 club, but that wasn’t always the case. During the 1991-1992 season, he earned over $1 million; and at the peak of his basketball career with the Chicago Bulls, the athlete brought home almost nine times that amount, raking in nearly $27.4 million throughout his NBA career. Rodman’s riches didn’t last, however. In 2012, the athlete claimed he was too broke to pay the $800,000 he owed in child support.

34. Janice Dickinson Net Worth: $500,000

It’s not uncommon for actors and models to squander their fortunes. However, it’s a sad day when the self-proclaimed “world’s first supermodel” — a woman who has been in the business for more than 40 years — sports a net worth of just half a million. Even after years of serving as a judge on “America’s Next Top Model,” Dickinson filed for bankruptcy in 2013, claiming that she had only $19,000 in assets and $1 million in liabilities, including $300,000 owed to City National Bank and $550,000 in back taxes.

35. Spencer and Heidi Pratt – $300,000

Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag became famous during their early 20s when they featured in The Hills, a reality series by MTV. As of 2008, the couple boasted a net worth of $10 million. However, by the show’s season finale, they were among the poorest celebrities in Hollywood. Spencer and Heidi Pratt’s net worth is currently estimated at $300,000.

36. Tom Guiry – $100,000

Who is the poorest celebrity? For someone who has been in the entertainment scene for close to three decades, Tom Guiry’s net worth will leave you surprised. As of 2021, Tom Guiry’s net worth is $100,000.
