Beyoncé Makes $300 Million From Uber Investments
Beyonce is a businesswoman as much as she is a performer as Queen Bey has reportedly raked in $300 million from early Uber investments.
As you know, Uber went public on Friday, meaning that its stock is now available to anyone who wants to buy it from the Stock Exchange. This also means the original investors have a huge paycheck coming their way.
According to Inside Edition, a little while ago Bey had performed at one of Uber’s private events and instead of being paid a $6 million performance fee, she was given a percentage of the company, so $6 million in stocks, which is reportedly worth $300 million today.
“A lot of the people you are talking about, Lance Armstrong, Jay-Z, Jeff Bezos, even Jeff Schmidt of Google, they got in early through word of mouth really,” Deridre Bosa of CNBC revealed to Inside Edition.
Jay Z was also an early investor back in 2011. It looks like they are definitely reaping the benefits now.
