He may be the butt of many jokes, but Nick Cannon — and his bank account — are no laughing matter.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the former star of Nickelodeon’s “All That” signed a massive overall deal with Fox Networks in 2018 that netted him a small fortune. And his massive income has only grown year over year. Despite his recent controversial comments that landed him in hot water, Nick Cannon is still the host of “The Masked Singer,” where the International Business Times reports that he makes about $70,000 per episode.

What’s more, according to the outlet, he continues to make money from other acting gigs, endorsement deals, and anything else that falls under his NCredible Entertainment umbrella.
His investment strategy even once got him featured in The Wall Street Journal, where he told professional investors that he was “always taught” to invest in land, even in the midst of a recession. He also explained the pitfalls of investing in a city like Miami.
“It’s almost better to invest in yourself, and invest in your passions, uh, and that’s what I started to do. I started investing into my own company. And when you do that, and when you invest in your own passions, OTHER people will invest into your passions,” he said to the outlet.
Sure, on the surface, it’s almost easy — nay, obligatory — to clown him. But, like him or not, Nick Cannon stays with a check in his hand.

4. Is Nick Cannon In A Relationship?
Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey were married from April 30, 2008 to Nov. 2, 2016. Currently, however, Nick Cannon is not married.
However, he recently told The Breakfast Club that he leads a “polygamous” lifestyle because he’s rebelling against the “Eurocentric” method of thinking.
“That’s a Eurocentric concept … the idea that you’re supposed to have this one person for the rest of your life,” he said. “We shouldn’t have anything. I have no ownership over this person. Those women, and all women, are the ones that open themselves up and say, ‘I would like to allow this man into my world and I will birth this child.’ It ain’t my decision. I’m just following suit.”
