Born in Hollywood, California to Thomas Stansbury, he changed his last name to Belafonte at a young age, apparently to promote his chances of having a career in Hollywood, a dream he had all of his life. After he finished school, he went to Loyola Marymount University and graduated in 1997, after which he spent some time going from job to job, all the while dreaming of his future as an icon in Hollywood. He worked minimum wage jobs such as a waiter and dishwasher before he finally caught his break. This happened in 2004, with the release of “Never Die Alone” (2004), on which he served as an associate producer for the film, and after that his career was launched, and his net worth was established.
Belafonte went on to serve as associate producer on the film “Thank You for Smoking” (2005), which received considerable critical acclaim as well as being financially successful, and served to heavily bolster Belafonte’s net worth.

Belafonte then returned his attention to TV, and produced an episode of “Singing Office” (2008). The next year he went back to Hollywood and produced the film “Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans” (2009), which was Belafonte’s biggest film to that point, and during which he had the chance to brush shoulders with industry icons such as Nicolas Cage, Val Kilmer, and Werner Herzog. It also became the biggest contributor to his wealth.
