Perez Hilton net worth: Perez Hilton is an American celebrity blogger and actor who has a net worth of $30 million. He is equally as hated as he is revered, and was born on March 23, 1978, as Mario Armando Lavandeira, Jr, to Cuban parents. Raised in Miami, Florida, Hilton showed an interest in the dramatic side of life from an early age. He earned his BFA in Drama from the prestigious Tisch School of the Arts at NYU, and began pursuing a career as an actor shortly after. The openly gay Hilton simultaneously explored his passion for the LGBT community with his work for the organization GLAAD. Hilton was also a freelance writer for different LGBT journals and other publications, leading to his position as managing editor of the gay men's magazine, Instinct. Having discovered his flair for the written word, Hilton moved to Los Angeles in 2002. He began Perezhilton.com in 2004. Not surprisingly, Hilton's nickname and blog itself were inspired by his adoration of socialite Paris Hilton. Perezhilton.com is both a gold mine and a hell for celebrities, as Hilton verbally attacks them as much as he promotes them. He is known (and feared) for the white marker he scribbles over celebrity photographs, used mostly for negative commentary. Celebrities such as Fergie have spoken out against Hilton, but others can attribute a chunk of their success to the coverage Hilton gives them. Whether you are enchanted by Hilton or despise him, after surpassing 8 million hits per day, one can confidently state that he has not only revolutionized the world of blogging, but has established himself as crucial figure in the Hollywood community. In recent years, he has transformed himself in front of both fans and foes alike losing a significant amount of weight and softening his image a bit. In 2014, he greeted his fans in a different venue and got a bit more vulnerable in front of the camera when he appeared on the hit reality television series, Millionaire Matchmaker with Patti Stanger.
