Raven Symone Net Worth
Raven-Symone net worth: Raven-Symone is an American actress and singer who has a net worth of $55 million dollars. Contrary to popular belief, Raven Symone is not worth $400 million. That rumor comes from an unsubstantiated media report that estimated Raven's business empire would eventually generate $400 million in revenues for parent company Disney. That statistic is quite different from Raven Symone having a personal net worth of $400 million. Assuming that $400 million number was true, Raven would likely be entitled to only a small percentage of those profits. Likely between 10 and 20% after taxes, management, lawyer and operational fees. Raven's take which would be a much smaller than $400 million but still quite an impressive amount. Furthermore, for anyone who still is under the impression Raven Symone is worth $400 million personally, that would mean she has managed to earn roughly $1 billion in her lifetime to account for taxes, fees and costs. While Raven has been very well paid in her career, this is simply not true.
