People With Money’s factors
In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.
The American actor-comedian has an estimated net worth of $185 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 Spade Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Birmingham Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderspade - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from David) and a fashion line called “David Spade Seduction”.
