No, Cristiano Ronaldo Is NOT A Billionaire

The affluent Cristiano Ronaldo has a lot of money. He is not a billionaire, though. That’s just a bad take on the real fact that he has earned a billion over his career. That is entirely different from possessing $1 billion in assets and cash.

Cristiano Ronaldo is not a billionaire.

Why is that always so difficult to comprehend? I have no idea. Simple reflection is all it takes to recognize the difference. Yet, errors like this frequently occur. It’s happened with Roger Federer, Madonna, Janet Jackson, Dr. Dre… even Raven Symone.

The 35-year-old attacker is just the fourth sportsperson to reach the milestone while still engaged in competitive activity. The long-term endorsement agreement Tiger Woods has with Nike helped him reach that milestone in 2009. In 2017, Floyd Mayweather triumphed. Floyd generated 99% of his $1 billion career earnings through pay-per-view sales of his boxing matches. Before his horrific skiing accident, Michael Schumacher earned $1 billion throughout the course of his career.

He makes roughly $45 million a year from endorsements away from the field. Nike was the subject of one of his most lucrative brand endorsement agreements. In November 2016, it was revealed that Cristiano had signed a $1 billion “lifetime” deal with Nike. He is just the third athlete (Michael Jordan and LeBron James are the other two) to ink a lifetime deal with Nike. Although the deal’s specific details are unknown, it is assumed to have included a $100 million signing bonus.

He is a fan favorite due to his attractiveness and soft side as a father of four. Cristiano Jr., born on June 17, 2010, in the United States, was his first child. He has full custody of his son and has never publicly revealed the identity of the mother. Eva and Mateo, twins born on June 8, 2017, in the US, are the children of Ronaldo and a surrogate. His girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez, a Spanish model, gave birth to their daughter Alana Martina on November 12, 2017.
