Fonzworth Bentley Net Worth is $2 Million (as of 2020)
As for the day, Fonzworth Bentley net worth amounts to $2 million, making it increasingly hard to believe that not so long ago this guy was just a personal valet and assistant. Of course, for the sake of truth I should also mention that he did not assist some random guy – he worked for the rap mogul Sean Combs, better known as Puff Daddy or P. Diddy. As you may know, this rapper, actor, entrepreneur and record produce is one of the most successful men in entertainment business. His debut album, which reached the stores in 1997, received 7xPlatinu certification from the Recording Industries Association of America. During the following years the rapper continued to build a career in music industry and ventured into variety of other fields, eventually establishing himself as a talented and skilled entrepreneur. It is not surprising, hence, that the current Sean Comb‘s fortune is much, MUCH greater than Fonzworth Bentley net worth – the rap mogul has some $700 million in his account. But enough about his former boss, let‘s talk about Fonzworth himself.

Before starting to work for P. Diddy, the millionaire graduated from Morehouse with a BS in Biology and attended New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology, one of the most prestigious institutions that offer education in this field. So how did he end up working as a personal assistant? Well, first of all, Bentley just felt he has to go to New York. When speaking to Clutch magazine, the graduate of Fashion Institute of Technology explained his decision by quoting a famous line from Frank Sinatra‘s song: „they say if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere“- he said. And why did he attempt to be hired by Sean Combs, instead of applying to the job that would be more appropriate for his education? Again, the answer to this question was provided by Fonzworth himself. In the interview mentioned above, the star has said: “I love music; I love hip hop, so my thing was, if I could be a personal assistant to a mogul, then I could see firsthand how he micromanages all of these different businesses. It didn’t matter if I worked for Jay Z, Russell Simmons, Dame Dash . . .“ Looking at the current Fonzworth Bentley net worth, it really seems like he made the right choice picking the job.
Of course, to earn the fortune he has today, the young man had to do much more than assist Sean. For example, he featured on the show Making the Band 2 and hosted MTV‘s program From G’s to Gents, released an album C.O.L.O.U.R.S and authored an etiquette book, titled Advance Your Swagger: How to Use Manners, Confidence and Style to Get Ahead. Each of these projects has contributed to the growth of the overall Fonzworth Bentley net worth.
