The-Dream net worth: The-Dream is an American rapper, singer, producer and songwriter who has a net worth of $10 million. The-Dream earned his net worth mainly from writing songs for many of today's top recording artists such as Rihanna, Britney Spears, Beyonce and Justin Bieber. He was born in Rockingham, North Carolina on September 20, 1977. He was married to singer Nivea from 2004 – 2007 and then married to singer/actress Christina Milian from 2009 – 2011. Their divorce was particularly nasty and expensive for The-Dream. In 2012, the state of Georgia fixed a tax lien $117,000 tax lien against The-Dream after he failed to pay taxes for the year 2007.
Did The-Dream earn $15 million off Rihanna's hit song "Umbrella"? In 2012, The-Dream announced to the world that he earned approximately $15 million off Umbrella sales alone. Unfortunately, this is just not true. After he made the claim, Rolling Stone and various other experts agreed that this amount was grossly exaggerated even if the track sold 4 million copies and the album sold roughly 3 million. Rolling Stone did a thorough analysis of this claim and calculated the number to be closer to $600,000 – $1.5 million. Not bad, but still not quite $15 million. Also, whatever the true number actually turned out to be, The-Dream would be required to split the royalties with at least three other co-writers including Jay-Z.
