The British musician has an estimated net worth of $245 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Williams Burger” chain) in London, a Football Team (the “Romford Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderwilliams - UK), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Cliff) and a fashion line called “Cliff Williams Seduction”.
