About Chaz Bono
As for the day, Chaz Bono net worth is estimated at $500 thousand. So yes, he is by far not the wealthiest celebrity around. However, many people are convinced that Chaz does not even deserve the fortune he has today. According to them, his only claim to the fame and fortune is that he was born in a family of two legends, Cher and Bono and underwent a gender transition – during the period 2008-2010 Chaz (former Chastity) became a man. Meanwhile the other half of the population is convinced that Chaz Bono net worth is inadequate and too small for his achievements, because he has done a tremendous job defending the rights of LGBT. I think that in reality, both of these groups have some good arguments on their side. So in the rest of the article I am going to discuss his Chez’ life and career in a greater detail.
Chastity was born as a daughter to legendary singing duo Sonny & Cher. While her parents were running their popular variety TV show, Chastity has often featured on it. The girl was named after the leading character of the movie produced by her father. This leading character was a bisexual woman, portrayed by Cher. This seems pretty ironic, having in mind that the girl has grown up to be transsexual herself and some people even claim that there might be a causal relationship underlying her early exposure to different forms of sexuality and the decision to change gender in the future. But this is not a place to concentrate on this question…
Born in a family of two talented musicians, Chastity has started to build a career in music herself. Along with the band Ceremony, she has released an album titled Hang Out Your Poetry, but it did not attract much attention and made an unsignificant contribution to Chaz Bono net worth. As her career in music has failed, it is most likely that eventually everyone would have forgotten about the chubby daughter of Sonny & Cher, if it was not for her LGBT rights activism. She „came out of closet“ in 1995, while giving an interview for an influential gay and lesbian magazine The Advocate. Although Cher, her mother, always seemed to be very liberal, these news did not make her particularly happy. It took a year until she finaly made peace with the fact that her daughter is a lesbian. Meanwhile the LGBT community has supported Chasity straight from the start. The support continued in 2008, as she decided to become Chaz. The books and series that talked about her experiences and documented her transition where quite successful commerically. This has led many people to conclude that the star has actually exploited her homosexuality and later transsexuality to become rich. Would you agree that this was the actual source of Chaz Bono net worth?
