Milo Yiannopolous is making headlines today for his questionable potential ties to white nationalists in the U.S. and Europe. But this isn’t the first time he’s made news (and money) over controversy.
In fact, Yiannopolous has benefited greatly from creating controversy in the past several years. He has made a lot of money, and earned a lot of followers.
So what is Milo Yiannopolous net worth 2018? What could he be making in the future? Read on…
Milo Yiannopolous actually started his career in an entirely different world — the tech startup world.
In 2011, he was involved in building a tech startup that got some serious momentum, before it ran into problems and shut down. From there, Yiannopolous started another company with some of his colleagues.
The company got into a lot of legal trouble over Yiannopolous’ behavior. The company got sold multiple times after nearly going bankrupt, and Yiannopolous got away, but had to make some payments to creditors.
Milo Yiannopolous got his biggest thrust into the spotlight by being involved in the “Gamergate” controversy, where he caused controversy by attacking female gamers.
That appears to have caught the attention of Breitbart, who made him their tech editor. Since then, Milo Yiannopolous has gone off on his own, doing multiple different short turm things.
He currently makes a significant amount of money on the college speaking circuit, where speakers like him can make between $5000-$15,000 per event.
He also got a huge $80,000 advance for his book by the publishing company Simon & Schuster. The book deal was cancelled after controversy erupted.
Milo Yiannopolous has earned his money over many different ventures.
It doesn’t appear that he made anything significant from his startups. However, his speaking gigs and book deal have made him a lot. He apparently has enough money to offer $125,000 in education grants to white males.
In total, we estimate Milo Yiannopolous net worth 2018 at $2 to $3 million. However, he has the opportunity to significantly increase that as he appears to be close to winning a $10 million law suit regarding his book deal. That would put his net worth at $12 million or more.
