What Is Viral TikTok Star Bella Poarch’s Net Worth?

TikTok is the hot social media platform that features short-form videos, often set to popular songs. TikTok has made headlines many times over the past few months, especially as people are spending more and more time on social media in the wake of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. TikTok has spawned several brand-new stars, young people who are beginning to branch out and explore major projects — all thanks to their success on TikTok. One of these stars is Bella Poarch, a young woman who started posting to TikTok in the spring of 2020 and has since risen to prominence for her engaging, humorous content.

Who is Bella Poarch?

Bella Poarch has been uploading content to TikTok since April, but it wasn’t until August that her videos really began going viral. No one knows Poarch’s exact age, but reportedly she was born in the Philippines and spent at least some of her early years there. These days, according to Heavy, she lives in Hawaii — although the jury is still out regarding her age. Some rumors have claimed that “Bella Poarch” might not even be her real name.

What cannot be denied is the effect that Poarch has had on the TikTok crowd. Poarch, who’s Instagram bio states that she served in the United States Navy, first rose to prominence in August 2020, after she uploaded a TikTok video of herself lip-syncing along to the song “M to the B,” according to Distractify. It quickly became one of the platform’s most-liked videos, with millions of likes and views. Since the release of that popular video, Poarch has gained millions of new followers and is now one of TikTok’s most bankable stars.

Bella Poarch has been open with her social media followers regarding her ongoing experiences with depression and anxiety and has stated that she has been living with PTSD since at least 2017. In spite of her openness on social media, Poarch has been involved in several controversies. Most recently, Poarch was spotted with the rapper Tyga, which led to speculation that she had been intimate with the rapper and that footage was somewhere online. Although the rumor has since been debunked, it shot Poarch to the forefront of tabloid headlines.

She has also been criticized for a tattoo that she has, one that features a rising sun. The symbol is considered offensive by many Koreans due to the ties to Japan’s Imperial Government. Poarch has since apologized on Twitter for inadvertently offending anyone with her tattoo choice. These days, Poarch is keeping her focus on her online content, which includes video spoofs of anime, video games, and other pop culture genres. 

What is Bella Poarch’s net worth?

While Bella Poarch is still a star on the rise, and likely has a bright future in entertainment ahead of her, the young entertainer has already established herself as a top earner on TikTok. Her exact net worth is not known, but considering that Poarch is a TikTok partner, and she gets paid for clicks and views, it seems likely that she is racking in the big bucks.

Plus, considering TikTok’s launch of a $200 million fund to pay creators, it is very possible that Poarch could become one of the wealthiest young women in social media over the next few years. The remainder of the year will likely be very important for Poarch, as she expands her audience base and continues to put out content that her fan base will enjoy and share.
