What is Jesse McCartney’s Net Worth?
Jesse McCartney was one of the most promising young stars in the 2000’s. He had a number of radio hits that many fans still remember to this day and attracted a lot of female followers for his good looks.
Although McCartney is no longer a huge star like he was back then, there are no doubt people who wonder how much money he has made since becoming a pop singer. Read on below to find out what McCartney’s net worth is and what he is up to now.
Jesse McCartney started out in a boy band
McCartney’s career started in 1999 when he joined the boy band Dream Street alongside four other teenage guys. The group released one album and a few singles from 1999 to 2002.
However, Dream Street’s career came to a halt in mid-2002 when the members’ parents sued the band’s creators, Louis Baldonieri and Brian Lukow, for engaging “in a wide range of conduct and activities that plainly threaten and impair the minors’ well-being.”
The lawsuit claimed that Baldonieri and Lukow were exposing the youngsters to things like alcohol and pornography.
Meanwhile, Baldonieri and Lukow denied the charges, with Baldonieri saying that the parents who sued were “teaching kids you can sign anything, then lie, cheat, and defame people for your benefit.”
In August 2002, the court ruled against Baldonieri and Lukow, effectively releasing McCartney and his band members from their contract.

While things did not work out well for Dream Street, McCartney soon proved that he could become a star all on his own.

In the following years, McCartney continued to come out with more music. He had a number of other radio hits like “Right Where You Want Me,” “Leavin’,” “How Do You Sleep?,” and “Shake.”
