How much is Miley Cyrus’ Net Worth? $150 Million!

Destiny Hope Cyrus was born in Nashville, Tennessee on November 23, 1992. Her parents, country singer Billy Ray Cyrus and Letitia Jean “Tish”, named her Destiny in the belief that her life would be filled with great accomplishments. As she would often smile as a baby, the nickname “Smiley” was given to her by her father. The nickname was later shortened to “Miley”. Miley eventually changed her middle name to “Ray” in honor of her grandfather, politician Ronald Ray Cyrus, to whom she was very close before his passing. Miley Cyrus’ godmother is famed long-time entertainer Dolly Parton.

Miley found a love for theater and acting as a young child. After an experience with her father seeing a production of Mamma Mia!, Cyrus began to take singing and acting lessons. In 2003 Cyrus appeared in the Tim Burton movie Big Fish, playing the role of “Young Ruthie”. In 2006 Miley sent an audition tape to a casting call for a show that eventually became Hannah Montana. Though Miley was trying to audition for the best friend role, she was called to audition for the lead role of “Chloe Stewart”, a girl with a secret double life as a student and a teen star. At first Miley was told by Hollywood producers that she was too young and too small for the leading role, though she was eventually invited to more auditions for the role because of her acting and singing talent. On March 24, 2006, Hannah Montana premiered to the largest audience a Disney Channel program had ever received. The show’s success was instant, helping to create Miley Cyrus’ fame almost overnight.


In 2012 Cyrus created a lot of media buzz by cutting her long brown hair, opting instead for a short blonde hairdo. In 2013 Miley hired a manager who had once worked with Britney Spears, left Hollywood Records and singed a new deal with RCA Records. “We Can’t Stop” was the lead single from her first album with the new label the same year.

Miley now nets around $1.2 million on each stop of her music tour, the last of which had around 60 venues in 2012. Along with major merchandising efforts, Cyrus’ own fashion line and aforementioned tour income, Miley Cyrus has an estimated net worth of $150 million.
