50 Cent Net Worth – The Vitamin Water Deal:
50 Cent's most brilliant financial investment came when he negotiated a minority stake in Vitamin Water in return for being their celebrity spokesman and lending his name for the "Formula 50″ drink. The Coca Cola Company acquired Vitamin Water from Glaceau for $4.1 billion and made 50 Cent 10 times more money than he had ever made rapping. 50's equity stake in Vitamin Water was initially reported to be 10% which would have meant $410 million in his pockets. This number was widely dismissed by investment bankers familiar with the deal who intimated that 50 stake was closer to 2.5% which means he made $100-$150 million off the sale. Not bad! If you combine this windfall with record sales, concert sales, clothing, merchandise, and acting it is safe to assume 50 Cent's net worth is enough to give his mentors Dr Dre and Eminem a run for their money!
