The term rich is defined by having a great deal of wealth and or assets as well as resources. Being born into families with such opportunity can allow for a higher chance of becoming rich. Many celebrities on this list were born to parents who were already famous, acting or singing their way to big paydays. Some were born into affluent families that did not obtain their wealth via acting or singing. Either way these stars were definitely rich before they became famous.
Take Ariana Grande for instance. Born and brought up in Boca Raton, Florida, Grande had a wealthy upbringing. Her father is the CEO to a very successful design company Ibi Designs Inc. that caters to clients such as comedian Eddy Murphy and the famous toy store FAO Schwarz. The star became famous during her teen years as an actress on the Nickelodeon channel, and now gaining even even more popularity as a singer.
Another famous example is Angelina Jolie, who was born into a family of rich Hollywood actors. Both her parents, father Jon Voight and mother Marcheline Bertrand, were wealthy actors when she was born. Today, Jolie is one of the wealthiest actresses in Hollywood with her own personal net worth of $140 million.
Here’s a list of 10 celebs who were rich before they were famous:
10. Robin Thicke: Net worth $15 million
Robin Thicke is the son of Alan Thicke, who played the role of Dr. Seaver in the hit television show Growing Pains. Funny enough, the show was about an affluent family living in New York. Thicke’s mother Gloria Loring is also a former television actress, though not as popular as her husband. Growing up in a family of actors, the Blurred Lines singer was rich long before he attained celebrity status. Currently, his net worth is at $15 million.
