Eminem, one of the world’s best-selling musicians, has a net worth of approximately $200 million.
The 43 year old rapper, known for his melodic, rhyming, hip hop rapping style, has already sold more than 170 million albums across the world and has won prestigious awards for his music. His $200 million net worth speaks for itself.
Marshall Bruce Mathers III in real life, the rapper, producer and songwriter is known to his millions of fans as Eminem or M&M. Interestingly, his alter ego – Slim Shady – was also as popular.
Following the moderate success of his initial album Infinite in 1996, Eminem released his second album The Slim Shady LP in 1999 which gained him his first Grammy Award for Best Rap Album and turned him into a huge celebrity.
Later on in his career, he delved into acting. He was part of the film 8 Mile released in 2002 which further expanded his already impressive 9-digit net worth.
Achieving a net worth of $200 million over time says a lot for a man who didn’t have much to begin with.
Eminem’s life as a child and as a young man had not been easy. He had a rough childhood and was accustomed to moving from one residence to another, raised by a single mother. On top of that, he had to deal with financial problems, drugs, family issues and frequent bullying from other kids in his neighborhood.
Amazingly, his aspirations and passion for music became his prime tickets to world-wide fame and immense financial success.
Today, Eminem is one of the most successful artists in the music industry and considered by many as one of the greatest artists of all time.
The rapper owns several mansions including one in Michigan bought for almost $5 million equipped with six bedrooms and nine bathrooms. He also owns cars including a Hummer H2 and a Cadillac Escalade.
Eminem had been married twice to the same woman.
He married Kimberly Anne Scott, a troubled teenager whom he met when he was 15, in 1999. They divorced in 2001. They got married again in January 2006 and divorced four months later. They have a daughter named Hailie.
Eminem also has two adopted daughters – Alaina and Whitney.
