George Lopez Net Worth
George Lopez was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, but his biological parents were absent from his life. His father left the family when he was two years old, and his mother followed suit eight years later. Thus, his grandmother and step-grandfather were left to take care of him.
At first, he performed stand-up comedy around his hometown in clubs and bars. Additionally, one highlight of his early career is being the first Latino to headline the morning slit of a radio show in LA. His rise to stardom came when an actress, Sandra Bullock, approached him to launch a sitcom starring primarily Hispanic actors.
Furthermore, Lopez was concerned with the lack of Hispanic presence in Hollywood and television at the time. Lopez then took the opportunity and created George Lopez— consequently, he is the first Latin actor to star in a television series.
A lot of his earnings came from this show. Reportedly, he earned an estimated $14 million for every season and received a portion of the royalties when it was sold to syndication, amounting to $20 million. Indeed, Time magazine named him one of the top 25 Hispanics in America.
Additionally, Lopez is responsible for the critically acclaimed Real Women Have Curves and his autobiography, Why You Crying, which became a New York Times Bestseller. Together with his ex-wife Ann Serrano, they launched the Ann and George Lopez Foundation, which aimed to spread awareness of kidney disease.
Today, he still sells out crowds during his comedy shows, earning him an estimated $8 million per year. His current net worth is valued at $45 million, which could have been higher, but he was left with half of his net worth after his divorce from his former wife, Ann Serrano.
George Lopez was Married to Ann Serrano.
The two met in a comedy club where Lopez was performing a skit— Ann Serrano took the first move and asked him out on a date. They married in 1993 at San Fernando Mission, California, in Lopez’s hometown three years later.
Early on in their marriage and after the birth of their daughter, the couple ran into some issues. Lopez spent a lot of time out of the house working and would often come back intoxicated. Ann said,
“In the middle of the night, I filled up his car with all his clothes, all his toiletries, a frying pan, toilet paper,” she said. “It was like, buddy, you’re not coming back. And I changed the locks.”
Since then, Lopez turned his life around and became much more engaged with his wife and family.
In 2005, Ann Serrano famously donated one of her kidneys when her husband suffered from kidney disease. The operation was successful, and both of them consequently lost a lot of weight.
However, in a wild turn of events, they announced their separation in September 2010 after nearly 17 years of marriage for “irreconcilable differences.” The separation became final on the 1st of July, 2011. Although, the two maintain an amicable relationship and co-parent their daughter together.
