Babyface Net Worth
Babyface net worth and salary: Babyface, born Kenneth Brian Edmonds, is an American R&B musician, singer–songwriter and record producer who has a net worth of $80 million. Babyface was born on April 10, 1958 in Indianapolis, Indiana where he attended North Central High School. He was a shy young man who began writing songs to express his emotions. When he was in eighth grade, Edmonds' father died of lung cancer, and at this point Edmonds became determined to have a career in music. He got his nickname when he was still a teenager by funk performer Bootsy Collins. Babyface got his start in the entertainment business when he founded a new record label, LaFace Records in 1989. The company quickly became successful when it started producing albums for such recording artists as Toni Braxton. In fact, she won a Grammy which brought more fame to LaFace Records. While he is a successful singer in his own right, Babyface is better known as a songwriter and producer. His divorce from former wife Tracey Edwards made headlines and reportedly cost Babyface half of his total net worth. That's enough to make it one of the most expensive celebrity divorces ever. His varied interests, however, are such that he can expect to rebuild his personal fortune.
