Net Worth of Zendaya
Zendaya’s net worth is estimated to be roughly $21 million as of 2022.
Zendaya has always been in entertainment ever since she was a young child. She officially entered the world of film in 2010 and into the world of music in 2011. Historically, she’s worked on both of these side by side, but in recent years, due to the exploding popularity of the Spider-Man series, she’s been focusing more on the film side of things.
Much of this can be attributed to Sarah Finn, the Marvel Studios Casting Director that casted Zendaya for the role of MJ. Even though she was known before, her popularity has exponentially increased with the series.
How much does Zendaya earn in a year?
Zendaya is estimated to have earned more than $12 million in 2021.
These earnings came mainly from Zendaya’s role as MJ in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Here’s a list of some of the recent films she’s played a role in and how much she reportedly got paid for each:
- Spider-Man: Homecoming: $300,000
- Spider-Man: Far From Home: $12 million ($2M base + $10M in bonuses)
- Dune: $300,000 (for 7 minutes of screen time)
- Euphoria: $50,000 per episode
If you total all of the above, she’s reportedly made over $14 million in the last few years. This doesn’t even include any earnings she’s made with her music and YouTube channel.
Let’s take a closer look at what her YouTube channel may have earned her. Her channel is called Zendaya and was created in 2010. As of this year, she has over 3.9 million subscribers and has had over 540 million video views.
YouTube channels make between $3 to $5 per 1,000 views. Let’s take the midpoint of that at $4.
With Zendaya’s running view count, she has already made at least $2.1 million from YouTube alone. Not bad at all. At that number, it makes up roughly 10% of her total net worth.
Did Zendaya Grow Up Rich or Poor?
Zendaya’s mother was a schoolteacher and a businesswoman with her own line of jewelry, and her dad a schoolteacher as well.
Zendaya grew up in Oakland, California. The per capita income of Oakland a few years back was around $45k, which is quite middle class if you’re comparing it against the rest of the US. Of course, this statistic isn’t necessarily reflective of Oakland back when Zendaya was growing up.
We know Zendaya wasn’t born into poverty because while traveling for auditions, her mother was able to hire a full-time private teacher to travel with and keep Zendaya’s education on track. This isn’t surprising as both her parents highly valued education. Furthermore, Zendaya has a saver mindset because her mother was quite the saver, which implies that her family was likely very responsible with money management.
It’s safe to say that although Zendaya may not have grown up super rich, she definitely was not poor. Most likely she had a very middle-class upbringing.
As a child, Zendaya had an interest in the performing arts, particularly acting and dancing. She attended Oakland School for the Arts, where she studied various forms of dance, including ballet, jazz, and hip-hop. During her time at the school, she also participated in theater productions, honing her acting skills.
How did Zendaya get her career started?
Zendaya began her career as a child model and backup dancer. She appeared in a number of print ads and commercials for brands like Macy’s and Old Navy. In 2010, she landed a role as Rocky Blue on the Disney Channel series “Shake It Up,” which aired from 2010 to 2013.
After “Shake It Up” ended, Zendaya began pursuing a career in music and released her debut single, “Replay,” in 2013. The song was a commercial success and reached the top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
In 2016, Zendaya landed her first major film role in “The Greatest Showman,” a musical drama about the life of circus founder P.T. Barnum. She played the role of Anne Wheeler, a trapeze artist and the love interest of Zac Efron‘s character, and her performance received critical acclaim.
Since then, Zendaya has continued to expand her career, appearing in films like “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and “Dune,” as well as the HBO drama series “Euphoria,” for which she won an Emmy Award in 2020. She has also continued to release music, and her second studio album, “Unconditional Love,” is set to be released in 2023.
Is Zendaya a Triple Threat?
Zendaya is much more than a triple threat. She is an actress, singer, dancer, model and fashion designer, making her a quintuple threat.
At the moment, Zendaya is dating her co-star Tom Holland. This has been rumored to have been happening since 2017, which is around the time that Spider-Man: Homecoming was released.
The famous Tomdaya duo’s relationship is going very strong, but the couple keeps their relationship very secret and shares very little details for the public.
