The entertainment industry is a massive one; only increasing its reach by the day. In addition, being a part of it can prove to be extremely profitable, owing to the constantly swelling budgets. However, whether it be sports, music, or cinema- some names make it big. Like Tiger Woods and Drake, big.
Drake is a Canadian rapper, singer, and songwriter who exploded onto the scene with his second album Take Care in 2011. His fourth album topped the billboard for a staggering 13 weeks, gaining critical as well as commercial success. He has won 4 Grammy’s, 6 AMA’s, and several billboard records amongst many other accolades.
Woods, on the other hand, is one of the greatest golfers of modern time, both in accomplishments and monetary terms. In fact, he is widely acclaimed for popularizing golf and bringing the sport to where it is today. He has the highest wins on the PGA Tour, tied with Sam Snead at 82. Moreover, he has 15 major titles, second only to Jack Nicklaus.
How much wealth has Drake amassed?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Drake’s net worth is $200 million. The music artist has business ventures in a lot of fields. He founded the OVO Sound record label in 2012, alongside Noah Shebib ’40’.
He has fashion labels with Nike and Air Jordan and clothing collaborations with multiple brands. Hs is the global ambassador of the Toronto Raptors and joined the executive committee for the NBA team
Moreover, along with Brent Hocking, he developed the bourbon whiskey Virginia black, which broke sales records in Canada. Alongside multiple endorsements, he was announced as the figurehead for apple music, which was launched in 2015 and was largely credited for its success.
In terms of investments, the 35-year-old has a $100 million villa called ‘The Embassy’ in Toronto. In addition, he owns properties in Beverly Hills, Toronto, and Hidden Hills, California. He also owns a Boeing 767.
Is Tiger Woods richer than Drake?
Woods has a net worth of $800 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Since his professional career took off in 1996, he has accrued more than $1.5 billion in earnings. Not only is he the highest earning golfer, but was also 9th on Forbes’ list of highest-earning celebrities.
However, a large chunk of his earnings came from endorsements. In his long career, he has partnered with many global brands like Nike, Rolex, Titleist, Accenture, Gatorade, Gilette, American Express, and many more.
He also has multiple assets in his name. They are a $25 million yacht, a $54 million Gulfstream G550 private jet, and a $55 million 12-acre property in Jupiter hills. This house boasts of a swimming pool, mini-golf course, and tennis courts.
So, while Woods is definitely the richer of the two, it is important to keep in mind the lifestyle differences between the two. And anyway, there is more left to the two’s careers. What do you think?
Leylah Fernandez: Fans chanting my name at Indian Wells Masters felt surreal
US Open runner-up Leylah Fernandez admitted that hearing fans chant her name at the Indian Wells Masters felt “surreal.” On Friday, Fernandez played her first match since her outstanding US Open campaign and fans in the stands chanted her name.
Fernandez, who is now enjoying a career-high ranking of No. 28 in the world, saw off Alize Cornet 6-2 6-3 to progress into the Indian Wells third round. “It’s surreal. You dream of that happening, but you don’t expect that to happen …
I got goosebumps. Like, even now, my Heart suit is beating so fast … I was so happy,” Fernandez said, per Mark Masters. Fernandez was asked on what did she work after the US Open. “Everything (laughs) … We always try to look for that extra inch, extra millimetre to be better …
We worked on everything,” Fernandez claimed.
Fernandez was thrilled to meet Maria Sharapova
“I was lucky enough to to meet Maria Sharapova at the Met (Gala). We kind of chatted a little bit and she gave me some pretty good advice.
She told me her own experience and the way that she was able to bounce back,” Fernandez revealed. Meanwhile, 2020 French Open champion Iga Swiatek shared advice for Fernandez and US Open champion Emma Raducanu. “Well I would say balancing all the things you have to do on-court and all the things that [you’ve] been doing for the past years with all that new stuff,” Swiatek explained.
“Because it can overwhelm [you] at the beginning. It was good for me that Roland Garros was the last tournament of the season. I know that [Fernandez and Raducanu] probably have one or two more. “Then they’re going to have a break and they’re going to have time to reflect on [their success].
“Also having the people around you who won’t be pushing you to do more because of public relations or publicity. Just you know maybe staying calm a little bit and waiting for how you will react to all of that.”

Martina Hingis Used Me! Says Ex Husband to Le Journal du Dimanche
Martina Hingis is happily back to tennis life. After leaving the circuit, she got back to living it. Just in doubles though, and some random single’s appearances in Fed Cup, just to show that despite the years and rust, she still is one of the greatest talents ever witnessed in women’s tennis.
As great as she is on court, Martina over the years has draw attention on her personal life far more than she ought to, with troubled relationships. Now, her former marriage is back on the news, with Martina’s ex husband Thibault Hutin taking on French Le Journal du Dimanche, to reveal that first of all the couple is legally still bonded and secondly that Swiss champion has used him over the years they have been together.
Hingis and Hutin got married in 2010, and while according to the media the Swiss is divorced, legally it appears the couple is yet to tear apart. In 2013 Thibault sued Martina for harassment. Their divorce is yet to be made official, and that hurts Hutin, as reported by JDC.
“My life is trash. I mistakenly left riding to preserve our marriage. I left my passion, there is nothing left. Without my family, I wouldn’t be able to pay my rent” confessed Thibault. When the couple met, Martina had just gotten back from a two-year suspension for cocaine abuse, thus she was quite fragile and not well seen by the media.
“Martina asked me to do interviews with her. Someone told me about her problems briefly, I didn’t know anything about it. Back than things were still tense. She wasn’t allowed to go to tournaments. She needed to rebuild an image.
The marriage with a good Frenchman was perfect at that time. She used me. Thinking about it now it seems obvious”. After more trouble, that including a surprising visit from Hutin to Hingis in New York that didn’t go well, the two separated in 2013.
