Clay Aiken is real net worth, Thanks to the fact that Clay Aiken enjoyed success during his time in the music industry — including earning a Billboard award for releasing the Best-Selling Single of 2003 and pleasing holly jolly crowds with his popular holiday tours — the star has $7 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. While that’s the kind of money that many people would love to win in the lottery or inherit from a long-lost, rich relative, it’s a relatively small fortune when you take a look at what other American Idol stars have made since their days on the show.
Season 6 winner Jordin Sparks has $10 million, which is less than half of Adam Lambert’s $25 million. Season 3 standout Jennifer Hudson also has $25 million, which is topped by Kelly Clarkson’s $45 million. And while those are undeniably enviable amounts money, here’s a fact that’ll make your jaw drop: Even if you combine all of the funds Aiken, Sparks, Lambert, Hudson, and Clarkson have into one massive fortune, that total amount still wouldn’t match Carrie Underwood’s $140 million.
While that may make the others feel a bit bad about the balance in their bank accounts, they can at least still claim they have more than Fantasia Barrino, who only has $3 million these days. Granted, $3 million isn’t an amount to be ashamed of. Frankly, each and every one of the Idol alums should be proud of what they’ve earned!
