Net Worth & Salary of Nick Cannon
Nick Cannon’s net worth currently stands at $60 million. The multi-faceted radio and television personality have amassed his net worth fortune for over two decades now, and even though its peanuts compared to his wife, who has a net worth of over $520 million, it’s still quite a lot of cash.
Most of his money has been made through all his numerous gigs. In 2017 he made $10 million that’s just from America Got Talent, alone, and apparently, he takes home $70K per episode. He also made around $4 million from his series Husbands of Hollywood.
Nick Cannon’s net worth might not be as huge as his ex-wife, but let’s give the man credit since no one can pull off all these gigs at one single lifetime. We all hope that even though he made a decision not to host America Got Talent, he might reverse his decision and soften his stand because the show cant is as entertaining as its always been without him.
