Kim Rhodes’ Net Worth is More Than You’d Think

Kim Rhodes net worth

Kim Rhodes typically stays out of the spotlight unless she’s in an upcoming movie. However, she has been seen in the news more often because she has decided to speak out about women’s rights. While it hasn’t landed the Supernatural star any new gigs, it is getting her some publicity. So, what is that doing for Kim Rhodes’ net worth?

Who is Kim Rhodes?

Kim Rhodes was born in 1969 in Portland, Oregon. After graduating high school, she attended Southern Oregon University and went on to achieve a Master of Fine Arts degree from Temple University. This set her up for a career in acting and she soon landed her first role in a soap opera.

She began acting immediately after earning her undergraduate degree and performed on the soap opera Another World while attending grad school. Rhodes and Mark Pinter were nominated for a Soap Opera Digest award as “Favorite New Couple.” Her time on Another World ended in 1996.

At this time, Rhodes continued acting at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival until she picked up her role on As The World Turns. Her time on this soap opera was short-lived (only one year). From 2005 until 2011 Rhodes played Carey Martin, the mother of twin boys on The Suite Life of Zach and Cody and The Suite Life on Deck.

In 2010, Rhodes landed her role for which many people know her today. She was cast as the sheriff on the CW’s hit show Supernatural. Rhodes first appeared in the fifth season of the show and has returned every season since. While spin-offs with Rhodes as the main character have been rumored, none of the ideas have taken off the ground yet.

Other Career Highlights

That’s not to say she hasn’t had plenty of other work in the meantime though. In addition to her appearance on Supernatural, she has also appeared on a number of other television shows such as Star Trek, CSI, and Key and Peele. Rhodes has also played a number of small roles on the big screen in films like Christmas With the Kranks and Atlas Shrugged: Part 2. 

Like many other actors and actresses, Rhodes has also performed some voiceover. In her case, she has voiced characters in video games. Many people may recognize her voice from Star Trek: Away Team (2001) as Yulana Oxila and Star Trek Online (2015) as Jhet’leya. How has each of these factors impacted Rhodes’ wealth?

Kim Rhodes’ Net Worth

Kim Rhodes’ net worth is estimated to be around $6 million. Much of her net worth has stemmed from her recurring roles on television shows. Maybe TV actors and actresses are able to accrue a bit of money fairly easily because they are paid per episode. While there is no information available about how much Rhodes is paid per project, it can be assumed it is a pretty penny!

A portion of her net worth can also be attributed to the value of her home in Los Angeles. Rhodes lives there with her husband, fellow actor Travis Hodges. The couple has one daughter, Tabitha. Hodges has not had a wildly successful career, so it is not likely his finances are contributing to their collective net worth.

Rhodes does not have any publicly held investments or luxury vehicles that may contribute to her net worth either. For the most part, she stays to herself and her family when she’s not playing a sheriff, mom, or a soap opera babe on TV.

Plies Net Worth: What is the Rapper Making Now?

Plies net worth

This week, Plies came out of hiding to be featured on Cardi B’s single Twerk. Cardi B is one of the most popular performers in present time and it has people paying attention to Plies again. What has Plies been up to and what is Plies’ net worth?

About Plies

Born Algernod Lanier Washington on July 1, 1976, Plies has changed the rapping game during his time in the spotlight. He grew up in Fort Meyers, Fla. and played receiver and defensive back for his high school football team. Washington was popular and intelligent. He was named the valedictorian of his class, he was crowned homecoming king, and named “best dressed” of his class.

After high school, Washington went to Miami University. From 1995 until 1997 he was a wide receiver for the university’s football team. In 1997, he transferred to the University of Central Florida and later dropped out.

Becoming Plies

In the late 90s, Washington began his transformation into Plies. He and his stepbrother Ronnell Lawrence Lavatte, later known as Big Gates, started their own recording label. They called it Big Gates Records. Initially, Plies was not interested in a career as a rapper and refused to rap. However, Plies demonstrated a verse on Big Gates’ track Tell Dem Krackers Dat, which Gates decided to keep. They promoted the single and eventually Plies landed a record deal with Slip-n-Slide Records in 2004.

After signing with Slip-n-Slide, Plies released a number of mixtapes. In 2007, The Real Testament was released. Shawty, his debut single from the album, peaked at number none on the Hot 100. Another single from the album, Hypnotized, peaked at number three on the Rap cart and 14 on the Hot 100. He’d officially made it on the radar!

Years Out Of The Spotlight

Plies made a number of guest performances on hit singles such as I’m So Hood, also featuring T-Pain and Rick Ross. In 2008 he released his second album Definition of Real. From it, the biggest hit was Bust It Baby Pt. 2. The single peaked at number two on the Hot Rap Tracks chart and number seven on the Hot 100.

Later the same year, Plies released his third album DaREAList and his first single from the album debuted at number 14 on the Billboard 200. The album sold 114,000 copies within the first week. He did not put out another album until two years later and it wasn’t quite as successful as his previous work, though many of the singles hit the top 40 of the Hot 100. Later that year he also released three mixtapes.

Since then, Plies has been featured on songs with other artists and releasing mixtapes but not much has gained popularity. However, his name still carries some weight in the rap and hip-hop world. So, how much is Plies worth?

What is Plies Net Worth?

Currently, Plies’ net worth sits around $14 million. The rapper had a relatively short-lived life in the spotlight but he was able to create enough hits and make enough money to be sustainable. His annual earnings have never been huge either.

According to The Richest, some of his most active years he made less than $1 million. See the figures below.

  • 2007: $500,000
  • 2008: $845,000
  • 2010: $140,000

It is also important to note that Plies cofounded Big Gates Records. As they continue to make music with new artists, Plies has a source of income there, whether he is making music or not. During his more active years, he also made quite a bit of money through concerts and is still performing live in 2019.

A portion of his net worth can also be attributed to his home in Greenwich and his collection of luxury cars. Plies owns a Gl Phone 50, Maserati, and Maybach, among others. Some of his vehicles have been customized as well, making them more valuable.

Plies is also a father. In 2003, he and his girlfriend, Brandy Lacole Lyons, had a son. The couple had been dating since 1994 and continued to be an item until 2007. Their son lives with Plies in Greenwich. Currently, Plies isn’t rumored to be dating anyone.

No Stranger to Controversy

In 2006, he was arrested for the illegal possession of a concealed weapon. Plies was involved in a shooting in Gainesville, Fla. where five people were injured. He paid $40,000 and was released from jail.

Florida cops picked Plies up again in 2017 for driving under the influence. The rapper refused a roadside blood alcohol content test. Police took him into custody and he was released later the same morning after posting a $500 bond.

Plies has undoubtedly had a successful career and continues to be a big name in hip-hop. How might Plies’ net worth compare to rappers who debuted around the same time?

How Much Is Big Chief’s Girlfriend Worth?

Big Chief Girlfriend

If you’re a fan of Street Outlaws you know who Big Chief is and you probably know a bit about his personal life. At the end of 2017, he divorced his wife and soon after began dating Jackie Braasch publicly. So, who is Big Chief’s girlfriend and how much is she worth?

Big Chief’s Girlfriend: Jackie Braasch

Big Chief got married extremely young. He and Alicia Shearer met one another when he was 18. After years of marriage, Big Chief and Shearer decided to call it quits. Not long afterward, he began publicly dating Braasch.

Chief and Braasch have more in common than he and his late wife did. Braasch is a racing driver like Big Chief. It is assumed the couple met at a racing event and hit it off from there.

She has been enamored with racing since she was a child. Her father, a racer, introduced her to the scene and she began racing at the age of eight. Braasch grew up watching races and working on cars with her dad, which led her to pursue a career in racing for herself. Her sister, Erin, is also a racecar driver.

During her career, Braasch has competed in a number of races and has won championships as well. In May 2015, she became a Car Chix girl and regularly competes in Car Chix competitions. All of this led her to her current relationship with Big Chief and the occasional appearance on Discovery Channel’s Street Outlaws but how has it all impacted her net worth?

Braasch’s Net Worth

There are no solid figures where Braasch’s net worth is concerned. However, it is safe to assume she has a net worth sitting in the six figures. Because she and Chief aren’t married, his $2 million net worth has no impact on her finances whatsoever.

Her estimated six-figure net worth stems from her prize earnings as well as mechanical work she’s done. Outside of her relationship with Big Chief, she hasn’t spent any time in the spotlight to have incredible earnings so her net worth is relatively modest.

One thing that definitely contributes to her overall wealth is the value of her Dragster, which she uses to win races. Typically, a top fuel dragster engine (by itself) is worth around $58,000, not to mention any additional modifications she’s made.

It is not yet known how Big Chief might impact her wealth but, for now, Braasch is content keeping their relationship low-key. If the pair does decide to get married, she will share wealth with Chief. However, it is important to note he will likely also have additional bills, including alimony and child support, should the pair ever get married.

For now, the couple is happily dating and both are continuing to do what they love: race.

What do you think about Big Chief’s girlfriend? Do you think they’ll eventually get married?

Kodak Black’s Net Worth

Kodak Black Net Worth

Hip-hop and rap have consistently grown in popularity in recent years. Because of this, rappers are some of the most wealthy people in the world. However, that isn’t the case with every performer. While many of them are worth millions, others only have a few hundred thousand dollars to their name. So, what is Kodak Black’s net worth?

About Kodak Black

If you haven’t heard of him before, Kodak Black is an American rapper. He is one of the younger performers in the game. Kodak Black was born Dieuson Octave on June 11, 1997, in Pompano Beach, Fla. Both of his parents were immigrants from Haiti and Octave spent most of his life being raised in low-income housing in Pompano Beach.

Kodak Black started rapping at a young age. In elementary school, he began going to a local trap house to record music after school. When he wasn’t recording, he enjoyed reading dictionaries and thesauruses to expand his vocabulary.

His youth was troubled, however. Kodak frequently participated in breaking and entering with his friends. He was also known to get into fights. In the fifth grade, he was expelled for fighting. By the time he was in middle school, he was arrested for stealing a car. Kodak always said he was only given two options in life: sell drugs or rap.

Kodak began using the nickname “Black” or “Lil Black” at the age of six. When he joined Instagram later in life, he chose the username “Kodak Black.” Eventually, this became his stage name.

Kodak’s Career

Kodak Black Net Worth

In 2009, Kodak Black joined a group called Brutal Youngnz. At the time, he used the stage name J-Black. He then moved on to join another local rap group called The Kolyons.

After being a member of these groups, Kodak began working on his own music and image. In December 2013, he released his first mixtape called Project Baby. One year later he released Heart of the Projects. And, staying consistent with his annual releases, put out the third mixtape in December 2015 called Institution.

In October 2015, Drake posted a video of himself dancing to one of Kodak’s songs. This helped the young rapper gain some popularity. Moving into 2016, Kodak was featured on one of French Montana’s songs called Lockjaw. It hit number 23 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

That year had a number of other great career moves for Kodak as well. His single Skrt reached number 10 on Billboard’s “Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles” chart and his fourth mixtape (Lil B.I.G. Pac – relased in June 2016) reached number 49 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. Since then, the rapper has released a number of singles and one new mixtape (released in 2018). He has continued to climb the charts, but that success hasn’t done much for the way he lives his life.

Controversy

2017 had a rough start for Kodak Black. In January, he broadcast and Instagram Live video of himself and several other men while a single woman performed oral sex on each of them. During the broadcast, his Instagram account hit an all-time high. After being called out about sexual assault and the video, Kodak posted to Twitter saying, “If I could change I swear I would .. I tried everything but I’m just so hood.”

Later that year he wrote on Instagram about his preferences with women. According to Kodak, he prefers light-skinned women over those with darker skin. Quite a few people on the internet called for Kodak to delete his social media accounts. On top of these controversies, it seems Kodak has had a hard time staying out of trouble as well.

Trouble With The Law

As a minor, Kodak Black was placed into a youth detention center three times in a single year. Eventually, he was placed on probation. Since then, he has been in-and-out of jail and seems to consistently stay in trouble with the police. Overall, he has had at least 11 court cases with rather serious charges, including sexual assault, possession of marijuana, battery, false imprisonment of a child, armed robbery, and assault.

In January 2018, Kodak was arrested again after his home in Florida was raided. A few good things came out of his incarceration though. While in jail, Kodak was able to earn his GED. He also found religion while he was locked up. During his time in jail, he began to identify as a Hebrew Israelite. In May 2018, he officially changed his name to Bill Kahan Kapri (Kahan means priest in Hebrew).

Even if Kodak hasn’t been able to stay out of trouble, there is no doubt he’s accrued some wealth through performances and sales. So, what is Kodak Black’s net worth?

Kodak Black Net Worth: $2 Million

Kodak Black Net Worth

As you may have guessed, Kodak isn’t as wealthy as some of the other rappers out there and his wealth pales in comparison to performers like Jay-Z (estimated to be worth $900 million). But, when you consider the fact that Kodak hasn’t been signed to any record labels, his numerous court fees, and lavish lifestyle, his $2 million net worth is predictable.

What’s crazy is Kodak makes an estimated $182,900 per month from his YouTube channel. When you factor in his record sales, he should be rolling in the dough. His first No. 1 album (Dying To Live) sold 89,000 album units. The week it came out, it was the most streamed album. The Project Baby and Painting Pictures are his second and third most successful albums, respectively. However, he has squandered quite a bit of his cash on his lavish lifestyle.

Kodak Black’s Lifestyle

Kodak Black’s net worth has been largely impacted the way he lives his life. Obviously, he has spent quite a bit of money making his legal troubles go away. On top of that, the rapper can be seen popping bottles of champagne and doing drugs on social media. He has also sent quite a bit of cash on his home and cars.

He owns a 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom mansion in Pembroke Pines, Fla. Zillow values his home around $885,808. The value of his home makes up a large portion of his overall net worth. Other possessions contribute to his wealth as well.

The rapper owns a number of cars. His red BMW X6 is valued at $66,245. On top of that, Kodak also owns a Rolls Royce Ghost (prices starting at $311,900) and a souped-up orange Cutlass with gold rims.

A portion of Kodak’s wealth also goes to paying child support and for other needs of his 3-year-old son. The child is mothered by his previous girlfriend, Jammiah Broomfield. Kodak was not aware of the child until he turned one year old.

Outside of his son, Kodak also gives some money to his mom. He even bought her a Mercedes. He also has a girlfriend who is known to the internet as “Cuban Doll.” The couple can be seen on social media kissing, hugging, and partying much of the time. There have been rumors that Cuban Doll and Kodak may break up but only time will tell.
