About Jeanie Buss
As for the day, Jeanie Buss net worth is estimated at $20 million dollars. As a part-owner and president of the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association (NBA), Jeanie is Always on the news, commenting Laker‘s decisions and various sport events. For example, not so long ago she gave an interview to USA Today and commented on the possibility that Kobe will not sign another contract with the team: “I think what’s important to me is that this is Kobe’s 20th year with the Lakers, and that we celebrate those 20 years, because I don’t think you’re going to see it very often ever happen again to have a player have a 20-year career in any sport, and in our sport especially on the same team. (…)Only Kobe knows when Kobe is ready to give up the game of basketball, so I’m not going to speculate on it.“ While it is not difficult to find out what are her thoughts on Laker‘s future, few people know about the sources of Jeanie Buss net worth. So let‘s speak about it.
First of all, you should know that Jeanie was born in a really (and I mean really) rich family. She is a daughter of Gerald Hatten “Jerry” Buss, an American businessman, investor, chemist, and philanthropist. Since the late 1970s he has owned not only Los Angeles Lakers, but also a number of other sports teams, including Los Angeles Kings hockey team of the NHL. Jerrie and Jeanie‘s mother Joann Mueller divorced in 1972, when she was only ten. It is possible that this was due to Jerrie‘s adultery. While serving as Laker‘s president, the man earned a name as a Playboy and was famous for having numerous much younger girlfriends. Despite the divorce, Jerry maintained close relationship with his four children from the first marriage. In fact, at the time of his death from cancer in 2013 all six of his children were working for Lakers organization.
It is estimated that around the time of his death Jerry‘s fortune was much greater than the current Jeanie Buss net worth: the father controlled some $600 million. Following his departure 66% of Lakers he own was inherited by the siblings, including Jeanie. Based on Jerry‘s will, each of them received an equal part, meanwhile succession plan had Jeanie assume Jerry’s previous title as the Lakers’ governor. So although we do not doubt that she has deserved her current position through many years of hard work (she has been working as Strings‘, team owned by her father, general manager since the age 19) , it is highly doubtful whether Jeanie Buss net worth would be as high as it is today, if she was not born for the „right” father.
