How Miley Cyrus’ net worth was built

The daughter of country singer and actor Billy Ray Cyrus, Miley Cyrus got her big break in show business when she won the role of the Disney Channel’s “Hannah Montana,” which debuted in 2006.

The show was an immediate success, leading to a tour with The Cheetah Girls and a soundtrack that topped the Billboard 200 chart. Cyrus simultaneously starred as Hannah Montana on television and in film and recorded her own music until the show ended in 2011.

In her post-“Hannah Montana” life, Cyrus continued her music career and appeared in several films and television shows, including “LOL,” “Two and a Half Men,” “So Undercover,” “The Night Before,” “Saturday Night Live” and “The Voice.”

To distinguish herself from her Disney Channel persona, Miley changed her appearance and added mature outfits and dance moves to her live performances. Her 2015 album, “Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz” drew mixed reviews as it was a departure from her previous music.

Miley Cyrus built most of her net worth through concert tours, YouTube revenue, and merchandising deals with Wal-Mart and Disney for a signature clothing line and “Hannah Montana” items.
