Inside Disney Channel Star Coco Jones’ Net Worth
Coco Jones got her start in Hollywood when she was just 9-years-old. After gaining recognition for her Radio Disney song, “Real You,” she went on to garner the starring role in Let It Shine as Roxie. The movie was a massive hit for Disney Channel and became the most-watched movie of the year for kids and tweens in 2012.
Jones also signed a record deal and went on to star in several other series and movies. But what is the 22-year-old’s net worth today?
Coco Jones was a huge Disney Channel star
With Let It Shine and Good Luck Charlie under her belt, Jones was poised to become the next Hilary Duff, Zendaya, or Raven Symone. Unfortunately, things never quite lined up for her. “I thought I was supposed to be the next Raven [Symone]. In my mind, that’s what I was thinking,” she said on YouTube. “I can even recall being a room looking around at the heads of all of this. I was like, ‘Oh, it’s a wrap.'”
While Jones had the momentum, she was not elevated in the way as some of her predecessors and some of her contemporaries. Now Jones is getting candid about being overlooked in the entertainment industry.

Unfortunately, things did not quite align for Jones the way that she thought it would. Instead, she aged out of the Disney Channel system and had to shift gears. Jones said on YouTube,
But what I think was the most traumatic thing for me is that if I can just let them see my talent, and then they’ll believe in me. But then they would really hear me sing, hear me act, see me dance, and I’m going hard in the paint–I want it–but because somebody else looks a little more marketable, it doesn’t matter baby girl. So that’s traumatizing as a little kid. You don’t know how to cope. You’re looking at yourself like, ‘What did I do?’ I’m asking my mom, ‘What did I do?’ It was just a lot of gassing me. I didn’t know what was true. I didn’t know what was real.
She even talked about some missed opportunities. “After Let It Shine, there was supposed to be a Let It Shine 2, point blank and period,” Jones shared on Youtube. “The writer wrote it…whoever didn’t want to do it, it didn’t go. I don’t know who it was who didn’t want to be a part of it. But it was done.”
This is Coco Jones’ net worth today
Thankfully, Jones has gotten some of her mojo back. She’s recently been seen in the new Netflix movie, Vampires vs. the Bronx as Rita. As she continues to garner more adult-roles, this will only add to her already massive net worth.
According to Wealthy Genius, Jones is worth $1 million. We can only see that expanding in the future as she continues to showcase her singing with her latest release, “Hollyweird,” and acting talent in future ventures.
