Ronnie DeVoe Net Worth $500,000
Roxbury-raised Ronnie was introduced to the band New Edition by his uncle and the band’s choreographer, Brooke Payne; eventually, Ronnie became the second last member to join the band, Johnny Gill being the last one. The group found fame as it competed in a talent show and won second place, upon which New Edition was signed to the Streetwise record label by music producer Maurice Starr. As the band went on to find popularity in America, Ronnie became a part of the biggest selling boy band in the country during the mid- and late-80s, which contributed significantly to his net worth.
However, New Edition was disbanded in 1990, which enabled Ronnie and his fellow band members Ricky Bell and Michael Bivins to form another group by the name “Bell Biv DeVoe” which also became popular. The group sustained Ronnie’s popularity in the market, as their first album – “Poison” – sold more than five million copies, while also spawning five single hits, which included “Poison” and “B.B.D (I Thought It Was Me)?”. After the success of their first album, the group released their next album “Hootie Mack” in 1993, and subsequently their third album “BBD”, but not until 2001.
The group actually reunited as New Edition in 1996, and went on a tour while also releasing their album “Home Again”; Ronnie DeVoe is currently associated with both the musical groups, and as a part of them, Ronnie has worked under the record labels MCA, Bad Boy as well as Biv 10. His net worth rose steadily.
Apart from music, Ronnie is also involved in real estate development, and is a co-owner of DeVoe Broker Associates, an Atlanta, Georgia-based real estate agency. Obviously, being a part of all these projects has been very significant in adding to Ronnie’s wealth over the years.
Regarding his personal life, Ronnie DeVoe now is now 48 year-old and has been married to Shamari Fears since 2006. Shamari is also a singer who is a member of the group Blaque.
