It’s kinda messed up that teens and young adults are making more than their parents when they were their age. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good thing, kids will learn a thing or two about money and how easy it can be to go from the top to the very bottom. It’s true that with every generation we become smarter and can adapt more easily to the environment we live in. Which in this case is full of technological opportunities only waiting to be seized. Some create groundbreaking apps, others star in blockbuster movies, and then there’s Blue Ivy, who’s just dirty rich thanks to her parents.
We’re about to visit the 25 richest Americans under the age of 25, and yes, you will feel old and broke. Probably multiple times. Enjoy!
1. Rowan Blanchard – $3 Million
16 years old. She’s only 16 and her net worth is already at 3 million dollars! How did she get this far? Disney series Girl Meets World gave her a great start, where she earned $10k per episode.
2. Quvenzhané Wallis – $3 Million
Would you like to feel old and broke? Guess who’s 14 years old and has the net worth around $3 million? It’s Quvenzhané Wallis, who starred in Beasts of the Southern Wild when she was 9.
3. Jackie Evancho – $4 Million
In the last 9 years Jackie Evancho has released seven albums and even went platinum in the U.S. in 2011. I’ve never heard of this 18-year-old singer, so… NEXT!
4. Bella Thorne – $4 Million
Disney knows which baskets to put their egg into. Bella Thorne is one of such eggs. She’s somehow managed to skyrocket her net worth from “$19.51 and a broken button”, to a whopping $4 million!
5. Willow Smith – $4 Million
It kinda makes sense that the daughter of Will Smith would be in the spotlight, and find something she’s good at sooner or later. She’s 17 now and she’s earned those $4 million using her voice and attitude, unlike some other kids on this list.
6. Rico Rodriguez – $9 Million
If you watch Modern Family you’re familiar with Rico Rodriguez. He’s Manny, and has been playing that kid for 7 years! No wonder his net worth is $9 million.
7. Elle Fanning – $5 Million
Great actress, cute face, and has an older sister, whose name is Dakota Fanning. Damn right she’s rich!
8. Zendaya – $5 Million
She’s the cutie from Spider-Man: Homecoming, but was also in The Greatest Showman with Jackman, and Effron! Did you know Zendaya also sings and dances? For now she may be at $5 mil, but when that second Spider-Man hits, things will change.
9. Jaden Smith – $8 Million
Oh boy… Jaden is one of those people that you either love or hate everything about them. He’s a horrible actor, an even worse Twitter philosopher, and don’t get me started on his rapping career. But, who cares, because he’s got the dough. All 8 million of it.
