What is Ed Sheeran’s Net Worth? With millions of records sold and tons of concerts attended, Ed Sheeran has established himself as one of the most well-known singer-songwriters in the world. But how rich is he? To answer this question, we have done our research, crunched some numbers and estimated Ed Sheeran’s net worth at the moment to be around $130 million by the end of 2021! Here’s how we got there!
Edward Christopher Ed Sheeran was born on February 17, 1991 in Halifax, West Yorkshire. His father grew up in New Zealand and played rugby for Ireland, while his mother comes from an Irish family that traces its roots to Cork. He has two older brothers, Jonathan and Matthew (twins). When he was a young boy, his parents divorced, and it became just him and his brothers at home. Music had always been a major part of Sheeran’s life: his father would often play records by Bob Dylan or Van Morrison during car rides. At age seven he began playing violin as part of a local youth orchestra but soon dropped out because he wanted to learn guitar instead.

As a singer, songwriter and guitarist, it would be fair to say that he achieved fame at an early age. For example, his music got him noticed by Jamie Foxx, who referred him to an A&R man named Jeff Bass in 2009. He signed a deal with Atlantic Records later that year, which allowed him to record his first album in 2010 (as far as we know). His debut album + reached number one on both UK Albums Chart and US Billboard 200.
Appearance on Game of Thrones
Of course, more recently Ed has made a name for himself with his appearance on Game of Thrones in 2019. Ed played King Robert Baratheon’s brother, Stannis Baratheon, who was infamous for his sourpuss face and strict adherence to fire worship. It’s likely that many people assumed Stannis would become king at some point, but he didn’t make it very far when faced off against Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke). He was burned alive during season 3 and we haven’t seen him since. And given that we don’t know exactly how much Ed earns per episode or whether they are paid per appearance, it makes sense why our estimates range from $22k-$70k/episode!
TV shows and Documentaries
I personally watch a lot of Netflix these days and I’ve also got an Amazon Prime account so that I can stream free 2-day shipping on anything I want. It makes my life so much easier! These two services have tons of great TV shows and documentaries to choose from. You could do a series of posts reviewing some of your favorites, or recommending new ones that are about to come out. This can be done in either written form, or as video reviews (for YouTube).
He likes to invest in new music. By helping fund up-and-coming artists, he earns a piece of their profits when they become famous and sell lots of records. Ed has earned millions from his share of One Direction’s success, from royalties from Beyoncé’s hit Drunk in Love, and even shares in some movie soundtracks. He invested a lot in Game of Thrones—the show was his guilty pleasure and he wanted to see it succeed. His financial stake helped turn Game of Thrones into a worldwide phenomenon and made him millions more dollars in royalties. But investing isn’t just about pop culture: Ed also invests big bucks in real estate (especially luxury homes).
Assets & Properties
$68 million USD. Apart from his residential properties in London, he also owns a house and an apartment in Los Angeles. He has a few vintage cars, like his Mini Cooper S and a Mercedes Benz G-Class and a BMW i8. He’s also known to splurge on a private jet or two sometimes to make his touring easier. These assets add up for an estimated net worth of about $68 million USD by 2021.
