Mariah Carey net worth: American singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress, Mariah Carey has an estimated net worth of $500 million. Mariah Carey’s remarkable vocal range helped her gospel-influenced dance tunes reach the top of the pop charts in the early 1990s, and she went on to become one of the top-selling pop artists of the last half-century. Her early hit albums included Mariah Carey (1990), Music Box (1993) and Butterfly (1997). She was signed with Sony Music and Columbia Records. Critics winked at Carey’s 1993 marriage to Tommy Mottola, the head of Sony Music and Columbia Records, but her vocal abilities and babe-appeal kept her in good standing with fans and made her a favorite on MTV. Mariah Carey and Mottola were divorced in 1998; Columbia bought out her contract for a reported $28 million Mariah Carey signed with EMI’s Virgin Records for a reported $100 million, but her first Virgin album; her career was seriously derailed with the 2001 release of Glitter, a critically slammed semi-autobiographic soundtrack and movie.
Some rough years followed, both personally and professionally, no one could have anticipated her extraordinary comeback in 2005 with the bestselling The Emancipation of Mimi. She was at the top of the charts again: Her album, The Emancipation of Mimi, earned 8 Grammy nominations and won three, including one for Best Contemporary R&B Album. After a tour she recorded the hit album E+MC2 (2008), which included the number one song “Touch My Body.” With its success she joined The Beatles and Elvis Presley as the top-selling artists of the last half century. The pop diva sold 160 million albums in 2005-2007. In 2007, Forbes Magazine estimated her net worth at $225 million. In a career spanning over two decades, Carey has sold more than 200 million records worldwide. Mariah Carey married rapper and actor Nick Cannon on 30 April 2008. On the day of their third anniversary, 30 April 2011, they had twins: son Moroccan Scott Cannon and daughter Monroe Cannon.
