On Basketball Wives, Malaysia Pargo is a fan favorite. Basketball Wives: Los Angeles was her first foray into reality television in 2011. In February 2021, ten years later, she returned for the ninth season of Basketball Wives on VH1.
On the other hand, the socialite did not earn the moniker “basketball wife” on her own. Malaysia Pargo acquired it through her marriage to Jannero Pargo, a former NBA player. After eight years of marriage, the couple filed for divorce in 2014. But that didn’t stop her from becoming one of the most popular television personalities in the world.
She has devoted her time after her divorce from Jannero to her children, her reality TV profession, and her enterprises, all of which have helped her to amass wealth. According to Celebrity Net Worth, she has a net worth of $3.5 million as of 2020.
A large divorce settlement has also contributed to her asset valuation and her enterprises. Let’s take a look at how the reality TV diva made her money.
Malaysia Pargo is a thriving entrepreneur.
If you’ve watched the show, you’ve probably noticed how beautiful her hair, skin, and lashes are. It’s no wonder that she works in the hair, skin, and lash industries.
After creating a bedding collection with Hedgecock Creed, she teamed with Urban Skin RX to create a Skin Quench Oxygen Gel Mask in 2019.
“I used to be a customer of Urban Skin Rx. I have experience with their goods and understood that their formulae were effective. “I became a fan of the brand, and because I adore skincare, I did further research,” Pargo told ESSENCE in 2019.
The Malaysia X Urban Skin Rx Skin Quench Oxygen Gel Mask is a hyaluronic-rich cleansing mask that purifies pores, smoothes texture, and brightens skin.
She also worked with The Virgin Hair Fantasy on the lashes and hair
The Basketball Wives actress is also the founder of Vanity World, a women’s clothing company. As a kind of advertising, Pargo is frequently featured on Instagram wearing stunning clothes from her clothing brand.
In honor of her three children, she called her jewelry brand Three Beats Custom Children’s Jewelry.
Pargo has also acted in the film Ludacris: Splash Waterfalls (2004) and the television show The Eric Andre Show (2012).
A Huge Divorce Settlement has Been Reached.
Pargo earned a hefty settlement in her divorce from her ex-NBA husband, according to 2016 reports from Bossip, which contributed to her massive net worth. She reportedly received a 2015 Mercedes Benz G550, half of Jannero’s NBA player pension plan, all rights to the firm 3 Beats LLC, access to three bank accounts, and a money market account as part of the settlement.
Jannero was also said to be paying $14,580 in child support and $800 in child care for the couple’s three children, including a son born in 2007 and twins born in 2011.
According to the publishing house, the former couple got to keep their furniture, jewelry, and any money they’ve made after their 2014 separation. However, the amount of money in the bank accounts and pension plan was unknown.
Before their divorce was finalized, Jannero had to pay Pargo $7,500 in spousal support for over a year.
