Mark Wahlberg Net Worth
Mark Wahlberg net worth salary and career earnings: Mark Wahlberg is an American actor, rapper, and model who has a net worth of $300 million. Mark Wahlberg was born on June 5, 1971 in Dorchester, Massachusetts. He is the youngest of nine children. He was a troubled youth who actually served forty-five days in prison as a teenager after violently assaulting a Vietnamese man. Mark began his musical career as the rapper "Marky Mark" following in the footsteps of his older brother Donnie Wahlberg, who was a member of boy band New Kids on the Block. Donnie actually produced Marky Mark's debut album. Mark's 1991 single "Good Vibrations," off the album Music for the People, was number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and later went platinum. His second album was less successful, but earned him a fan base and a reputation for dropping his pants in public. In 1992, Wahlberg was recruited as a model for Calvin Klein underwear, and his image was famously displayed on a Times Square billboard for much of the year. Soon after, he began appearing in films beginning with a made-for-TV movie. Mark was attracting critical attention with roles in movies like The Basketball Diaries, Boogie Nights and Three Kings. In the 2000s he made the leap into big budget action films like Planet of the Apes, The Perfect Storm, and The Italian Job.
Today he is a bonafide A-List actor and producer. In 2006, he earned Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for his performance in Martin Scorsese's The Departed. He was the executive producer of HBO's Entourage which aired 96 episodes over 8 seasons and then released a feature film in 2015. The show was loosely based on his own experiences in Hollywood. He is also the executive producer of the HBO series Boardwalk Empire, Ballers and How to Make It in America.
Mark Wahlberg married model Rhea Durham in 2009. They had been dating since 2001 and today have four children.
Business Ventures: Outside of acting and producing, Mark co-owns, with his brothers Donnie and Paul, the burger chain Whalburgers. The Wahlberg family has appeared in a reality series based off the chain that airs on A&E. As of this writing there are more than 30 Wahlbergers locations in North America alone.
In July 2013 Mark became a part-owner in a Barbados-based cricket team. In 2015 Mark recruited rapper Diddy and billionaire investor Ron Burkle to invest in a bottled water company called Aquahydrate. He is also a co-founder of a sports nutrition company called Performance Inspired. In 2017 he invested $6 million in the sneaker resale marketplace StockX. In 2018 Mark and a partner bought a Chevy dealership in Columbus, Ohio.
Mark Wahlberg Real Estate: In April 2018, Mark sold his former longtime Beverly Hills home for $12.4 million. He had originally listed the property for $30 million. He bought the home in 2001 for $4.95 million. Today Mark's primary residence is an absolutely stunning estate in the gated Beverly Park community of Beverly Hills. Mark and his wife bought one of Beverly Park's last-remaining undeveloped lots in May 2009 for $8.25 million. Sitting on 6-acres, Mark hired famed architect Richard Landry to design what became a mildly-ridiculous (in a good way) 30,000 square-foot main house. The build likely cost north of $20 million. The final product features a golf course, basketball court, large pool, movie theater and much more.
