Taylor Swift's cat, Olivia Benson, reportedly has a higher net worth than her partner, NFL player Travis Kelce. Online net worth calculators claim that Olivia is worth $97 million, while Travis's net worth is estimated to be $40 million. These calculators, however, may not be entirely accurate.
Cats.com, the source of this information, claims to have used data from Instagram to determine the net worth of celebrity pets. However, finance experts argue that this approach is far from accurate. Calculating someone's net worth, whether human or pet, requires detailed financial information that is usually kept private.
Financial advisor Travis Brown explains that without access to a celebrity's financial records, it's difficult to make an accurate calculation. Jen Reid, a financial advisor specializing in millionaires and millennials, agrees that sites claiming to know a celebrity's wealth should be taken with skepticism. These calculators may not account for various expenses or investments that celebrities make.
Despite the inaccuracy of these net worth calculators, celebrity animals can still have value. Nala Cat, for example, has a book and a pet food brand. Gunther VI, a German shepherd, even stars in a documentary on Netflix about his enormous wealth. Animal actors, like Olivia Benson, earn a decent income when working on set.
While Olivia Benson's true fortune may remain unknown, it's clear that the internet will continue to speculate on the net worths of celebrities, both human and animal.
