If you’re like us, you got your first taste of Ed Sheeran in 2011 when his single “The A-Team” was released (or 2012, when the sleeper hit became popular in the U.S.) If you’re also like us, you couldn’t stop listening and needed to know more about the melodic voice behind the inconspicuously dark tune. We weren’t alone, and just a few years later Ed Sheeran has become an unstoppable force on the music charts.
Though Sheeran grew up with a modest up-bringing and strict parents who preferred he be active in reading and music versus television and video games, he hasn’t let his new-found wealth and celebrity change him. Here’s a break-down of Sheeran’s assets and earnings.
Here’s just more proof that Sheeran is one of the most down to earth people on the planet. Despite his millions and therefore his pickin’s when it comes to real estate, Sheeran chose to purchase a home near where he grew up. In January 2018, he invested in a $1.4 million home near his parents in Suffolk, England. While the six bedroom home is nothing to scoff at, it’s endearing to hear Sheeran has chosen to stay close to his roots.
Not applicable! Sheeran does not even have a drivers license. But he told the Daily Mail in October of 2014 that should he get one and purchase his first car, it would be a Mini Cooper, because sports cars make him nervous.
Towards the end of 2014, The Sun reported that Sheeran earned about $140,213 a week and $7,327,800 in the bank. His high earning power was no surprise, since he became a million-seller with his album “X” in the U.K., a rare feat. In total, by the end of 2014, he had sold over 1.87 million albums, which gives you a general idea of the kind of fame he has come to achieve. Several media reports claim that despite his insanely profitable weekly earnings, Sheeran budgets himself to little more than a thousand dollars. He claimed that most of his money, in fact, goes to taxis, a refreshing admission.
Ed Sheeran’s net worth is now an estimated $16,000,000. This is thanks to not only his talent and due successes, but also his frugality and ability to live a down-to-earth lifestyle regardless of his celebrity status.
