Now, this is a story all about how a few actors lives got flipped-turned upside down and we’d like to take a minute just sit right there, we’ll tell you how the actors became wealthy on a show called The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. (Are you singing along to the theme? Nice!) The characters on the show certainly weren’t hurting for funds in their Bel-Air mansion complete with a full-time “butler” (who in fact did everything around the house) and in real life the actors are now sitting pretty on fortunes of their own, some larger than others. Yeah, that’s right, the Fresh Prince himself is super-duper rich now. But can you guess just how much he has? Check out the list below to find out what the stars of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air are worth now.
10. DJ Jazzy Jeff (Jeffrey A. Townes), a.k.a. Jazz
Estimated Net Worth: $8.5 million. DJ Jazzy Jeff had to pull out all of his acting chops to turn himself into…Jazz. Okay, so maybe it wasn’t much of a stretch for the long-time friend of the Fresh Prince himself, but the beloved quirky character popped in on the show’s characters enough to make him a regular favorite of fans. What’s he been doing since the show ended? Well, he’s still making music. In 2015, he he performed the scratch overdubs for the film, Straight Out of Compton. But it doesn’t look like he needs to work another day in his life. He’s worth an estimated $8.5 million!
