What is Rudy Giuliani's net worth? He filed for bankruptcy in 2023.

How rich is Rudy Giuliani? The public gained a bit of insight into his finances during a 2023 defamation trial when the politician was found guilty and ordered to pay back $148 million in damages, according to CBS News. Prior to this ruling, his lawyer, Joseph Sibley said it would “be the end of Mr. Giuliani" if the jury was to award such a large sum.

According to a CNN Money report, Giuliani's net worth was around $52 million back in 2007 when he was earning around $17 million per year. However, his financial situation seems to be much more dire nowadays, as he filed for bankruptcy in 2023 following the aforementioned ruling. An article from New York Magazine shares that Giuliani has claimed "he has a 'net income' of $2,308 per month and monthly expenses of $43,797." He also stated that former president Donald Trump owes him $2 million in legal fees.
