Cee-Lo Green Net Worth $22 Million
Cee Lo Green was educated at Riverside Military Academy in Georgia. Both of his parents were ordained ministers, and although his father died when Green was two years old, he started his music career in church. Cee Lo Green started his professional musical career with “Goodie Mob” in Atlanta. Its first album “St. Elsewhere” was released in 2006, reaching 4th position on US Billboard 200, entering the top of UK album charts, and with the single “Crazy” earning Green international success, and adding a solid sum to his net worth. “St. Elsewhere” also earned a Grammy Award for the Best Alternative Music Album. In 2008, the second album “The Odd Couple”, along with its first single “Run (I’m a Natural Disaster)”, was released. However, during the production of the third “Goodie Mob`s” album, Green left the group in order to focus on the duo “Gnars Barkley”, with DJ Danger Mouse.
In 2010, Cee-Lo abandoned “Gnars Barkley” simply because he decided to dedicate his life to a solo career. In 2010, Cee-Lo Green released the worldwide known single “F*** You!” alongside his first solo album “The Lady Killer”, which became one of the top five albums in both the UK and USA and was certified Gold in the UK. “F*** You!” registered over two million plays in less than a week, and earned Cee-Lo Green five Grammy nominations, moreover, it reached platinum status in Canada, New Zealand, UK, and multi-platinum status in Australia. “F*** You!” also provided Cee-Lo with a great addition to his wealth.
As regards Cee-Lo Green`s film and television career, the artist took a minor role in “Mystery Men” (1999) along with his colleagues of “Goodie Mob”. Green also became one of the coaches of several seasons of the TV show “The Voice”, together with such celebrities as Adam Levine, Shakira, Christina Aguilera. Cee-Lo also performed as himself in some episodes of “Parenthood” (2011), “American Dad!” (2011), and “Anger Management” (2013). Furthermore, Green did voice acting work on several episodes of “Brak Show” (2002), “Robot Chicken” (2007), and “Boondocks” (2008). All these roles helped Green to add a solid sum to his net worth.
From early childhood Cee-Lo was seen to have a great talent for music; his mother who encouraged him to sing, and her tragic accident, which left her paralyzed for some years until she died, had a great impact on Green`s lyrics. Concurrently with his music career, he plunged into a deep depression and he expressed his feelings in such songs as “Just a Thought” and “She Knows”. By the time his mum died, Green’s net worth was hardly enough to support himself. His song “I Feel Better”, in which his recovery after the depression is reflected, was greatly beneficial to Cee-Lo Green’s net worth.
Cee-Lo was married to Christina Johnson(2000-04). The couple has a son, Kingston.
