The American singer-songwriter-musician has an estimated net worth of $215 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 Stills Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Dallas Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderstills - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Stephen) and a fashion line called “Stephen Stills Seduction”.
