Nuno Bettencourt Net Worth $10 Million

Nuno is the son of Ezequiel Mendes Bettencourt and his wife Aureolina da Cunha Gil de Ávila. He has two brothers, Luís who is also a musician, and Roberto. The whole family moved to Hudson, Massachusetts when Nuno was four years old. He showed some interest in music and played drums occasionally, until his brother Luís started to teach him how to play guitar. Nuno was disastrous at first, but he started learning on his own, and little by little his skills improved. Later in his career, Nuno stated in interviews that he would skip school in order to learn to play guitar, often spending several hours practicing.

As he got older his interest increased and he started the hair-metal band Sinful, however, he just couldn’t catch a break with his act, and went on to join the rock band Extreme.

With the Extreme, he released five studio albums, including “Extreme II: Pornograffitti”, which achieved double platinum status in the US, and triple in Canada, which only increased Nuno’s wealth.

The album featured the band’s most successful song “More Than Words”, which topped the charts in the US and The Netherlands, and was also gold certified in USA. This was followed by “III Sides to Every Story” (1992), which achieved platinum status in Britain and Canada and gold in the US. The band was on hiatus for 10 years from the mid- ‘90s, then in 2008 released their fifth album – “Suadades de Rock”, which wasn’t quite welcomed as its predecessors, as it reached only No. 78 on the US Billboard chart. For the time being, Nuno is working with the rest of the Extreme on their sixth album, which would be released late in 2017.

Apart from Extreme, Nuno released his own solo album in 1997, entitled “Schizophonic”, which featured his bandmate Gary Cherone on vocals. Furthermore, Nuno has worked with numerous other artists, including Steve Perry, Janet Jackson, Robert Palmer and Rihanna as well, among many others which also improved his net worth. Nuno was a part of the alternative rock band Satellite Party, fronted by Jane’s Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell; they released one studio album, entitled “Ultra Payloaded” in 2007, before disbandment in 2008. This also increased Bettencourt’s net worth.

Regarding his personal life, Nuno has two children with his ex-wife, Suze DeMarchis, who is a singer of the hard rock band Baby Animals. The two were married from 1994 until 2013.
