Marshmello's Net Worth: How Much Is The DJ Really Worth?

Anonymity in the music industry can be difficult, with few having managed to successfully get atop the charts without showing their faces. But DJ Marshmello has defied the odds, appearing at festivals with a huge marshmallow head, and creating chart toppers with music's biggest artists, including Zedd and Selena Gomez.

Many may be wondering why Marshmello conceals his identity — and the answer is simple: anonymity sells. "We were like, 'How do we create something that's not driven by who it is, or what it's about?" Marshmello's manager, Moe Shalizi, told Forbes in 2017. "We're creating more of a faceless brand."

It seems as though the faceless strategy has worked as Marshmello has received multiple Platinum and Gold certifications from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for his singles and collaborations.

With numerous hits under his name, Marshmello is living a sweet life. Find out how much the DJ is worth below.

Marshmello also launched a YouTube series called "Cooking With Marshmello," on his channel, which boasts 52.6 million subscribers and millions of views per video. It is likely that Marshmello earns a significant amount of money as a YouTube creator, as well. Not to mention the fact that he also opened his own nightclub and is a stakeholder in a marshmallow brand called "Stuffed Puffs," as well as investments in apps, per Forbes.

While Celebrity Net Worth estimates that Marshmello has a net worth of $44 million, that figure may be too low, as Forbes has the DJ at a whopping $56 million. 

As for how Marshmello spends his millions, he recently purchased a nearly 8,000-square-foot mansion in L.A. for $10 million, per The Dirt. The lavish home boasts five bedrooms and seven bathrooms, a library, a pool, hot tub, and more.
