She has already earned a fortune with an estimated net worth of $5 million. How did the young star become a multi-millionaire at such a young age? We checked into her career history to find out how she came to be so wealthy, and here is what we discovered.
Her early years
Zendaya began her career in entertainment at an early age. She actually started out in the modeling industry. She appeared in an advertisement for iCarly franchised toys. She also appeared in a television commercial for Sears as a backup dancer, alongside Selena Gomez. Zendaya’s first paid work was as a model and dancer. The acting portion of her career would come later.
Her big break
Zendaya entered teh acting world in 20190 when she was chosen for the part of Rocky Blue in Disney’s “Shake It Up.” This gave her the exposure that she needed to open other doors to yet more acting opportunities. After making her role a success, she was chosen for several other Disney Channel movies including “Zapped” and “Frenemies” in 2014. She also secured a part in K.C. Undercover” in the lead role of KC Cooper, yet another Disney Channel television series. This was a good experience which helped to prepare her for her debut on the big screen which was just a few years away.
Landing a major film role
Zendaya had already broken into film and television through her Disney Channel movie and television series’ roles, but there would be more ahead for her. She was cast in the role of MJ Jones in “Spider-Man: Homecoming” which is a feature film released in July of 2017. This was a high grossing film that brought in $880 million worldwide and gave her yet more exposure on an international level. Although it wasn’t shared exactly what her cut of the pie was, we’re assuming she did very well for her contributions to the film. She also co-starred in “The Greatest Showman,” which is a musical drama.
Her musical career
In addition to being a model and actress, Zendaya launched her musical career with the releases of her singles “Watch Me” and “Swag It” in 2011. She was signed with Hollywood Records the following year. She achieved remarkable success when her debut single “Replay” made it to the 40th spot in the Top 100 Chart in the United States with her studio album climbing to number 51. She also performed “Rewrite the Stars” from the 2018 film “The Greatest Showman” in 2018, which made it to the top 20 list in Australia and in the United Kingdom, giving her international celebrity status.
What she’s up to now
Zendaya is currently working in her role as a 17-year old drug addict in “Euphoria,” and there is more coming up for her acting career. She will appear in the upcoming film “Finest Kind,” which is in the thriller genre, and she will also appear in the science fiction movie “Dune.” Zendaya is going to be trying her hand at something new in the film industry with her debut as a producer. The movie will be called “A White Lie,” and it centers around an African-American woman who pretended to be a white woman just so she would be allowed to go to college in the 1890s time period. This is a highly anticipated film that is bound to take her career even higher.
Zendaya is not the kind of person who likes to flaunt what she has publicly, but it’s common knowledge that she owns a mansion that is valued at an estimated $1.4 million. She lives in the lap of luxury but she deserves to do so. She’s worked hard to achieve the level of success that she currently enjoys, and this is just the beginning for her. Those who have been in the acting, dancing or modeling industry understand all too well that there are certain sacrifices that you have to make. It involves a lot of hard work, long hours and maintaining the best possible physical appearance. Zendaya has put forth the effort and now she’s reaping the benefits, but she still works hard as a professional in the entertainment business.

She’s added film production to her amazing professional portfolio and she’s still in her early 20s. She has a long and successful career to look forward to. As of 2019, she’s amassed a fortune of $5 million, and while this is an excellent start, we fully expect this figure to increase within the next few years. She’s a savvy professional who is branching out and trying new things. We’re all looking forward to the release of her first film production “White Lie,” and wish her the greatest success upon its release. Zendaya has come a long way since she started out as a child star appearing in a variety of Disney Channel movies and television series.
