What is Boris Johnson’s Net Worth?
Boris Johnson is a British politician who has a net worth of $2 million. He is only the second British prime minister to have been born outside of the British Isles. He was created in New York.
On June 19, 1964, in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, New York City, Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson was born. His parents were artist Charlotte Fawcett, 22, and liberal intellectuals from a family of 23-year-old Stanley Johnson, who was then a Columbia University economics student.
Before going to the United States, Johnson’s parents were married. The family relocated to West London’s Maida Vale in the latter half of 1969, and Stanley started doing graduate work at the London School of Economics.
Prior to moving back to Primrose Hill in Primrose Hill, London, in 1970, Charlotte and the kids spent a brief period of time at Nethercote, where Johnson attended Winsford Village School. In the latter part of 1971, Joseph, the fourth child, and third son, was born.
The violin and viola duet Allegra e Boris, which Hans Werner Henze had written especially for the wedding, was played during Johnson and Mostyn-wedding Owen’s in West Felton, Shropshire, in September 1987.
They moved to West Kensington, West London, after returning from their honeymoon in Egypt, where he obtained employment with L.E.K. Consulting, but quit after only one week.
After meeting The Daily Telegraph’s editor, Max Hastings, while serving as president of the Oxford University Union, Johnson was able to gain a job on the leader-writing desk.
His writing was renowned for its peculiar literary style, which was filled with archaic terms and expressions and frequently referred to the readership as “my friends.” His writings catered to the newspaper’s conservative, middle-class, middle-aged “Middle England” audience.
When considering a future in politics, Johnson stated in 1993 that he wanted to run as a Conservative candidate for Member of the European Parliament (MEP) in the 1994 European Parliament elections.
Johnson’s candidacy was overruled by Major after Andrew Mitchell persuaded him to do so, but Johnson was unable to secure support. His focus then shifted to getting elected to the UK House of Commons.
Johnson received a regular column in The Spectator, a sister journal of The Daily Telegraph. The piece received mixed reviews and was frequently seen as hurried. He also had a column assessing new cars in the GQ magazine in 1999.
His actions frequently infuriated his editors, and GQ staff members were annoyed by the numerous parking tickets Johnson amassed while testing automobiles.
When he delivered his writing to The Daily Telegraph and The Spectator, he was frequently late, forcing several employees to remain late to accommodate him.
Some employees claimed that if they published without including his work, he would become irate and yell at them incoherently.
Johnson became well-known across the country after he appeared on a BBC episode of the satirical current events program Have I Got News for You in April 1998.
Johnson’s election as a Member of Parliament for Henley in 2001 marked the beginning of his career in politics. Johnson, a member of the Conservative party, has written books and appeared frequently on television while serving in the House of Commons.
He served as the Shadow Minister for Higher Education from 2005 to 2007 after serving briefly as the Shadow Minister for the Arts in 2004. He was elected mayor of London in 2008 after defeating incumbent Labour party member Ken Livingstone.
He led the Olympic Games in London in 2012 and forbade drinking in public places. Johnson won re-election in 2012 by outvoting Ken Livingstone one more. Boris made about $1 million the year before he was elected prime minister, of which $450,000 was paid for a weekly newspaper column he wrote for the Daily Telegraph.
After becoming prime minister, he was forced to leave this position. In the past, he was also able to accept expensive speaking engagements, with each address potentially earning up to $200,000.
Boris wed Allegra Mostyn-Owen, a notable art historian and Italian author’s daughter, from 1987 until 1993. Boris wed Marina Wheeler just 12 days after Allegra and he finalized their divorce. They parted ways in 2018.
He got married to Carrie Symonds in 2021. Six children total one from an affair, two from Carrie Johnson, and four during his marriage to Wheeler.
