Here's How Much Mimi Faust Is Really Worth

Mimi Faust is one of the original stars of the VH1 reality series "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta," joining the show in 2012. Prior to starring on the series, however, Mimi experienced a hard childhood, per TVOverMind. According to the outlet, Mimi's mother raised her in Scientology and kicked her out at 13 because she wouldn't sign a church contract. Additionally, Mimi didn't meet her biological father until she was 16, and was raised believing another man was her dad. But as she got older, she broke into the industry, appearing in early 2000s music videos like Kelly Prince's "It's Gonna Rain," and Pharrell Williams's "Frontin," per Celebrity Net Worth.

In 2014, she became infamous for a sex tape with her then-boyfriend Nikko Smith. In a May 2020 interview with Stacii Jae Johnson on the YouTube series "Love Rants," Mimi talked about the tape, revealing, "There's only a few things that I regret in my life, and that tape was at the top of my regret list."

But Mimi's life has calmed down in the last few years. The reality star is the mother of tween daughter Eva from her former relationship with music producer Stevie J. Still, Mimi most recently dated WNBA player Tamera "Ty" Young for five years, even getting engaged during the pandemic, before breaking up in 2021 because Mimi didn't want to get married.

Mimi Faust's happier life has resulted in a smaller paycheck

Per Celebrity Net Worth, Mimi Faust is worth $2 million. The "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star has gotten nice paychecks from the reality series since 2012, reportedly making $20,000 an episode. While she had a rollercoaster relationship with Stevie J on the show, Mimi's happier life has resulted in a lower paycheck!

In an interview with Stacii Jae Johnson on "Love Rants," Mimi claimed "Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta" producers cut her pay because her life didn't have enough chaos in it. Mimi said, "I'm happy and nobody wants to see the happy on 'Love And Hip Hop.'" She continued, "They want to see wigs flying and drinks thrown and somebody punching somebody in the face ... and unfortunately, I choose not to participate in that and I've had to take a major pay cut because of it. The reason was, I didn't have enough 'drama' in my life. $150,000 I had to take because of it. $150,000 pay cut." Yikes! But maybe with her recent breakup drama, she'll once again be making the big bucks. 

In addition to the show, Mimi earns royalties from porn company Vivid Entertainment for her sex tape, per Celebrity Net Worth. On "Love Rants," Mimi revealed she's working on her book again, which will no doubt earn her more money. One thing's fore sure: Mimi has led an interesting life, and we're looking forward to watching her next season on "LHHATL."
