So, what is Halsey's net worth?

Ashley Frangipane grew up in Edison, New Jersey, where she learned many musical instruments at a young age. Throughout her childhood, her parents were frequently moving, and Ashley's artistic talents could not outweigh the cruelty of her peers. She was hospitalized for a suicide attempt and later diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which made her already difficult childhood impossible.

At seventeen, she left home and became romantically involved with a 24-year-old living on Halsey Street in Brooklyn, New York. Her stage name is taken from the street. Also, "Halsey" is an anagram of "Ashley." Around this time, she started posting music to her YouTube, Kik, and Tumblr pages. One of her first viral moments was a parody of Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble" from the perspective of Harry Styles, Swift's then-boyfriend.
