Usher‘s fortune has reached astronomical new heights this week.
For, thanks to dollars, pounds and pesos pulled in by his hit-kissed discography, the part he played in introducing Justin Bieber to the world, and his success within several realms in entertainment, the trendsetting star’s net worth now stands tall at the $180 million mark.
By definition, one’s net worth is “the value of all the non-financial and financial assets owned by an institutional unit or sector minus the value of all its outstanding liabilities.”
Put simply? Usher has $180 million to his name.
A large portion of this fortune was generated by the 65 million records the 38-year-old performer has sold worldwide as well as the cash he collects as part owner of the Cleveland Cavailiers.
How much he and a group of well heeled investors paid to pick up their shares in the team in 2005?
Why do you think Usher is such a high-earner?
