What is Sexyy Red's net worth?

Sexyy Red, whose real name is Janae Wherry, has been rapping on YouTube since 2018, but she's come to more prominence recently thanks to her single "Pound Town." That track has gone viral, and has become her most popular song on Spotify by a wide margin. Because she's still in the earlier part of her career, though, her current net worth is estimated to be just $400,000. That figure will likely increase if she continues to produce hit tracks.

Sexyy Red has already been controversial about politics.

Thanks in large part to how outspoken she's been about her political views, Sexyy Red has already turned some people off.

“But once he started getting Black people out of jail and giving people that free money ... we love Trump," she continued. "We need him back in office. We need him back because, baby, them checks. Them stimulus checks. Trump, we miss you.”

If those comments weren't enough, Sexyy Red is also addressing the recent leak of a sex tape, saying that she was "heartbroken" by the leak.

“I’m so heartbroken; anybody that know me knows I wouldn’t do no goofy s--t like that,” she wrote.

While Sexyy Red may be courting controversy and getting her sex tape leaked, her fame is only growing. And as her popularity continues to grow, it's easy to anticipate that her net worth will, as well.
