Who Is Crystal Kung Minkoff's Husband And What's His Net Worth?

"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Crystal Kung Minkoff is the franchise's first Asian-American cast member, who will make her debut during Season 11. And she's fully aware of how much her groundbreaking casting means to the community. "For me, it was obviously extremely important to represent Asian-Americans," she told E! in May 2021. "I feel a massive responsibility for the AAPI community, and hopefully represent it well and inspire the minority fans of the show ... I'm one of many, many Asian-Americans. We have our own stories and it's important to share them."

Along with her on this new journey will likely be her husband of 14 years, director and producer Rob Minkoff. Crystal and Rob met in 2003, per Bravo, and got married in 2007, according to People. Rob has made a name for himself as a director of classic films like the 1994 version of "The Lion King" and 1999's "Stuart Little." And the Minkoffs undeniably live a lavish lifestyle fit for a "RHOBH" star, but how much money has the famed director-producer made from his Hollywood successes? Read on to find out Crystal Kung Minkoff's husband's net worth.

Crystal Kung Minkoff's husband, Rob, might've made millions from movies

Several sources give different figures for the net worth of Crystal Kung Minkoff's husband, Rob Minkoff. Net Worth Post estimated the director to be worth $500,000, while Taddlr put his earnings at $10 million. 

It seems more likely that his net worth is on the higher end, since Rob probably received a cut of the $1.08 billion profits earned by the 1994 version of "The Lion King," per Box Office Mojo. "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star's husband has made most of his income through directing animated and live action Hollywood movies, which also include flicks like "Stuart Little," "Stuart Little 2," and "Mr. Peabody and Sherman." Rob has also directed an episode of "Leverage" and even co-created the Nick Jr. series, "Rainbow Rangers." 

But at the end of the day, it seems like Rob Minkoff's career in film has been driven by passion rather than by money. In 2011, he told Collider, "Even if it's a drawing, or if it's a cartoon, you're still trying to create authenticity [in a film] because, if the character emotes authentically, it has a power to connect with the audience."
