Celebrity Net Worth estimates James’s net worth to be $500 million this year.

According to James, his physique is his most precious asset. Business Insider reported that LeBron James spends around $1.5 million a year to preserve his body which includes fees for his home gym, trainers, massages, therapist, and nutritionist.

In 2020, James paid US$36.75 million for a Mediterranean-style compound in Beverly Hills. The house has a rich history. It was erected in 1930 for the estate of Lee Phillip Bell, a talk show host and soap opera producer. Previously, it was owned by actor Charles Boyer and Howard Hughes, who leased it to his lover Katharine Hepburn.

The mansion has four bedrooms, seven bathrooms, two guesthouses, a tennis court, and a theatre. It is around one hectare (2.5 acres) in size and has a view of the city.

LeBron James’ investments

Since 2011, James has been a part-owner of Liverpool FC, an English Premier League football team. According to a recent estimate of the club by auditing company KPMG, he purchased a 2% share for US$6.5 million, which is currently worth £37 million (approximately US$52 million).

When Dwayne Wade was asked who the cheapest player in the NBA was, he said it was LeBron James. In an ESPN interview, James stated, “it is so, so, so falsely true.”

He also acknowledged that he does not use data roaming and does not buy apps or pay for a Pandora subscription. When Pandora learned about this, the app offered him a premium account, which James accepted with the words, “if you insist.”

James may be frugal with his money, but he wanted his team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, to make a trendy entrance for their Game 3 encounter against the Indiana Pacers in 2018.

As a result, he purchased matching Thom Browne suits for his teammates. And these weren’t just any suits: they were “custom, made-to-measure Super 120 twill suits with white Oxford shirts, four-bar cashmere cardigans, leather brogue boots, and Mr. Thom bags. According to Sports Illustrated, each suit costs around $5,000.
