For those who don’t know, Amber Rose (or Amber Levonchuck, to give her birth name), is a 36-year-old model, television personality, actress, and influencer. She is also a very rich lady. According to Celebrity Net Worth, the former Ms. Wiz Khalifa is worth the grand sum of $ 12 million. A fortune for anyone’s rights, and one that’s about to grow even bigger if your current business interests are based on something. So who exactly is Amber Rose, and how exactly did she get so ridiculously rich?
The first days
Rose was born in October 1983 in Philadelphia. At the age of 15, his parents divorced. In an effort to financially support the family, she began stripping under the stage name ‘Paris’. According to interviews he has given since then, he also tried his hand at drug trafficking, but was unsuccessful. In 2008, her fortune took an upward turn when she was cast in the video for Young Jeezy and Kanye West’s “Put On”. Her appearance not only caught West’s attention (the two began dating soon after), but it put her in the limelight in an important way. By 2009, she had put her stripper days behind her after winning a contract with modeling agency Ford Models. New York Fashion Week runway appearances soon followed. As Wiki notes, around the same time, she was also making a name for herself as the ‘dream girl’ for rap star music videos, appearing in movies like Nicki Minaj’s “Massive Attack,” Young Jeezy’s “Vacation,” Wiz Khalifa. “No Sleep”, “You Be Killin ‘Em” by Fabolous, “What Them Girls Like” by Ludacris and “Mask Off” by Future.
Fame and fortune
You can be famous without being rich and you can be rich without being famous. But more and more, one feeds on the other. Since she achieved celebrity status, Rose has made a great deal of money simply by being famous. Like other “contract stars,” she makes big money for showing up at parties and private functions and mingling, even briefly, with fellow guests. According to fotolog.com, clubs or individuals who want Rose to honor them with her presence will have to shell out between $ 50,000 and $ 250,000 for the privilege.
Social media is not just a place to share your cute cat photos. It is a place where you can earn money. In Rose’s case, make that a fortune. According to blackenterprise.com, Rose, who currently has more than 18.8 million followers on Instagram, makes more money per post than most of us make in a year. During an interview with host Van Lathan on the Red Pill podcast, Rose revealed how much she earns per year on the social media site. “Probably like $ 2 million a year, from Instagram alone,” he said. “There are girls who earn more than $ 2 million a year, I earn $ 2 million on Instagram a year.”
We all use emojis, but how many of us could design one? More importantly, how many of us could make millions doing the same? Rose, for example. In 2016, the model-turned-businesswoman launched the emoji app Amber Rose. Available in the iTunes store for $ 1.99 each, the app features more than 900 emojis personally selected by Rose. Despite the somewhat adult content (Apple has issued a warning along with the app that says “You must be at least 17 years old to download this app” and warns about “Frequent / intense adult / suggestive themes, infrequent / moderate sexual content and nudity, Infrequent / Mild Use or references to alcohol, tobacco or drugs, Infrequent / Mild fantasy violence or cartoons, profanity or vulgar humor infrequent / Mild ”) the app was unleashed with Rose fans at its launch… So much so, in fact, it ended up earning him a $ 4 million payday.
If her modeling work, video appearances, and emoji design weren’t enough to keep Rose going for champagne and caviar, her long list of endorsement deals certainly will. Since rising to fame, he has made a fortune by lending his name and face to various products and brands, including Smirnoff, online retailer Fashion Nova, and weight loss products like BoomBod and Flat Tummy Tea.
Over the last decade or so, Rose has become an almost permanent fixture on our screens, sometimes as an actress, but most of the time as herself. His first appearance was in 2007 when he appeared as Jesse on an episode of The Haunting. Subsequent acting concerts have …
