Former kickboxer turned controversial social media star Andrew Tate took over the world by storm last year. From being an unknown former kickboxer to becoming the most searched man on the internet at one point, Tate has had a ride for the ages. However, the main reason why people view ‘Top G’ is mostly due to his over-the-top boasting of his wealth and not caring what anyone has to say about his political inclinations. This unapologetic and brash attitude is what made Tate a household name in Internet culture.

However, it hasn’t been smooth sailing for him after he was detained by the police on charges of human trafficking and is currently severing a 30-day detention. Despite this, he has claimed his innocence and hopes that his self-proclaimed trillion-dollar fortune would help him get out of this mess. So let us take a deep dive into how Tate earns his millions and whether he is actually a trillionaire.

How does Andrew Tate make money?

Tate is a master of managing his money and doesn’t have a single revenue stream for his finances. His primary source of income is his online course, Hustler’s university which accounts for the majority of his revenue. He also had a booming webcam business which has seen a drastic change since the charges. Moreover, Tate has amassed over 11.6 billion views on TikTok despite being banned. This virality has also earned him some additional revenue along with being the perfect promoter for his university as well.

Hustler’s university currently has over 100,000 students subscribed to a monthly fee of $50. This alone would net Tate $5 million a month, excluding all the additional packages one could buy with the course. While this amount would certainly be life-changing for a normal person, Tate has claimed that this is only a small part of his net worth. Moreover, according to him, he is the world’s first trillionaire even beating the likes of Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos.

Is Andrew Tate a trillionaire?

Despite claiming to be the world’s first trillionaire, Tate is nowhere near that milestone. It is estimated that his current net worth is around $50 million, although some sources claim it could be around 300-400 million. This is a far cry from achieving the trillionaire status which no man in the world has.

As of writing, even the richest man in the world Bernard Arnault has a net worth of $212.1 billion, according to Forbes. This is more than $780 billion short of the targeted milestone which might seem impossible to reach for anyone, at least in the near future.
