Marshawn Lynch went from professional football player to TV stardom.

After earning millions of dollars playing professional football, Marshawn didn’t just rest on his laurels. Instead, the famous Applebee’s fan moved on to a career on TV and in movies.

He has appeared as himself in high-profile shows and movies like 80 for Brady and Murderville. Marshawn is also winning new fans as a contestant on the reality show Stars on Mars.

Given his rampant success, it will not surprise many to learn that Marshawn owns multiple million-dollar-plus homes in California and Hawaii, according to Velvet Ropes. He has also been known to drive pricey cars such as a Porsche Cayenne.

However, the former NFL player also gives back. Marshawn founded the Fam 1st Family Foundation to help youth in his hometown of Oakland, Calif., as well as worldwide.

Among the organization’s charitable efforts is an annual family football camp.

Meanwhile, Marshawn’s seemingly-charmed life hasn’t been without controversy. In 2008, he pled guilty to a hit-and-run accident that injured a woman. In 2012, he was arrested for DUI, and then the same tragic circumstances played out again in 2022.

For his part, Marshawn denied being drunk during this latest run-in with the law but wasn’t cooperative with the arresting officers, according to Las Vegas Review-Journal. He pled not guilty to charges in Las Vegas in March 2023.
