Backstreet Boys: How Much Are They Worth Now?
It has been 22 years since the Backstreet Boys formed in Orlanda, Florida and essentially changed the face of pop music with their incredible success as a boy-band. Over the years the band has released eight albums, released their own documentary and have become not only the best-selling boy band in history, but also one of the world’s best selling artists ever. Their success began in Europe before it translated to the North American, and before long they were at the top of the music world, pulling in massive amounts through tours, merchandise, appearances and of course their top-selling albums. After a hiatus, the Backstreet Boys are back together and still working on music. Given their ongoing popularity, it seemed about time to check out just how much each member is worth after more than two decades in the business.
5. Nick Carter
Estimated Net Worth: $35 Million. Unlike NSYNC, not a single member went off to have the success Justin Timberlake did from his boy band, but perhaps the most well known Backstreet Boy member is Nick Carter. Surprisingly, Carter has the lowest net worth amount, but he certainly isn’t hurting with $35 million to his name. Aside from money made as part of the band, he also embarked on his own solo career, which didn’t fare as well. He also took on acting roles, appearing on several TV shows, as well as his own reality shows including The Carters and I Heart Nick Carter and, of course, made himself known again by competing on Season 21 of Dancing With the Stars.
4. Kevin Richardson
Estimated Net Worth: $40 Million. Thanks to his time with the Backstreet Boys, Kevin Richardson has earned himself an impressive net worth of $40 million. In 2006, Richardson left the group to pursue his own career; however, he kept making appearances with the group before permanently rejoining in 2012. He also took on modeling jobs and acting roles, appearing on multiple shows, TV movies and on Broadway, all adding to his already large bank account from his boy-band days.
