Cher is one of the few of the one name club. Like Madonna, Elvis, Beyonce, Prince and Pink, members are almost always musicians, though Marilyn and Brando do come close to one name status as iconic Hollywood stars. Cher, also a Hollywood star, icon and actress, came of age during the turbulent 1960’s and shared the TV variety show spotlight with then hubby, Sonny Bono. Sonny and Cher would welcome the biggest stars of pop culture to play on their show. At the program’s conclusion, they’d often bring out their little daughter, Chastity. She grew up to become a writer and gay rights advocate, then revealed that she wasn’t a Lesbian, but a transgender individual. Chastity had sex reassignment surgery and became Chaz Bono. What is the celebrity net worth of mother and son?
She’s the multi-talented and multi-faceted singer and actress who defines a generation, yet can truly be called timeless. Though she was discovered and groomed by musician and producer Sonny Bono, Cher’s irresistible charm and raw entertainer instincts survived the end of their marriage, where even Sonny admitted he acted a bit like a controlling Svengali over his wife. Cher would become a Las Vegas draw, perform duets with the likes of Meat Loaf and Rod Stewart, and then became a respected, and ultimately an Oscar winning actress for her fantastically memorable role in the romantic comedy, “Moonstruck” – opposite Nicholas Cage. Cher scored hits like “If I Could Turn Back Time” and what’s arguably become her signature hit, “Believe” – where she championed the use of the then new recording technique called auto tune. The musical witchery may seem a bit overused or even dated now, but it’s a haunting part of her hit, and Cher’s instincts once again were right on target. Cher has an estimated net worth of $305 million dollars.
He was born a female, but sex reassignment surgery turned the woman Chastity into the man named Chaz Bono. America caught its first glimpse of Cher’s daughter when she was brought out on the Sonny and Cher Show. After working as a writer and gay rights activist, she revealed publicly that she would undergo gender reassignment surgery. During his time competing on “Dancing With The Stars”, Chaz’s mom showed her support by being in attendance during the live show, hosted by Tom Bergeron and airing on ABC. Chaz’s performance on the dance competition may not have been the best for its technical merit, but it was hailed as a brave endeavor, which helped to shed further light on transgender people. Bono has an estimated net worth of $500 thousand dollars.
