Pharrell Williams’ Net Worth
In the early 1990s, Pharrell began producing with his longtime friend Chad Hugo. The pair, known as The Neptunes, would develop their sound over the next ten years. They had established themselves as a prolific and successful production duo by the early 2000s, producing a staggering number of hits between 2000 and 2009 and winning numerous awards in the process. At one point, the songs they created accounted for 43 percent of all songs played on US radio.
In addition to producing hit songs, Pharrell has released multiple solo albums and toured with his band, N.E.R.D. He is also a busy composer, having composed soundtracks for films and television shows such as “Despicable Me,” “Chelsea Lately,” and the 84th Academy Awards. When Pharrel isn’t producing, writing, or performing, the tireless artist runs a clothing line, designs furniture, oversees a teen entertainment website, and is the Creative Director for KarmaloopTV, an online original content channel.
Williams now says he regrets being a part of Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” which has been widely panned for its contentious lyrics, which are thought to refer to sexual assault.
On October 12, 2013, Williams married Helen Lasichanh. Rocket Williams, their son, was born in 2008. He wrote “Rocket’s Theme” from “Despicable Me” for his son. Helen gave birth to triplets in January 2017.
