Have you ever wondered how rich Ahmet Zappa is? According to sources it has been estimated that Ahmet Zappa’s overall net worth is $1.5 million.

Ahmet was born the third child of famous musician Frank Zappa and his wife, Gail Zappa who was a successful businesswoman. He grew up in the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles with three other siblings, all of whom are successful artists today. Ahmet’s parents were of mixed origins. His father, Frank, is of Sicilian, French, Arab and Greek ancestry and his mother was of French, Danish and Irish descent. Ahmet started his television career at the beginning of the ‘90s, when he appeared on “The Adam and Joe Show” in 1990. He was next seen in the horror film “Children of The Corn V” (1998) in which he played the role of Lazlo. Apart from this, Ahmet has appeared or voiced-over in a few more films such as “Jack Frost” (1998), “Gen” (2000), and then had a smaller role in the film “Ready To Rumble” (2000), and also made a cover of Britney Spears’ song “Baby One More Time” for the film’s soundtrack in cooperation with his older brother Dweezil. No doubt these activities added to Ahmet’s net worth.

During the early 2000s, Zappa hosted “Robotica”, a robot combat show which ran for three seasons. However, although he was seen in several films and TV show, Ahmet is largely known as a writer, mostly thanks to his debut novel from 2006, “The Monstrous Memoirs of a Mighty McFearless” which was dedicated to children. The book was very successful, so the Bruckheimer Films and Disney bought the rights for a movie, and it is expected to be released soon. The same year, The Jim Henson Company hired Zappa to write a procedure for “Fraggle Rock: The Movie” which is the film version of the 1980s hit TV show of the same name. These all contributed to his net worth.

Relying on his talents, Ahmet came up with the idea of creating a novel-to-film division in Disney’s studio, and suggested it to Bob Iger, the chairman of the Walt Disney Company. Iger accepted, and Ahmet ended up as the founder and co-ordinator of “Disney’s Kingdom Comics”.

Then in 2010 Zappa founded his own company thanks to his deal with Disney Studios, and called it “Monsterfoot Productions”, creating and releasing many films ever since. The first one, “The Odd Life Of Timothy Green” was released in 2012 and starred Joel Edgerton and Jennifer Garner.

Ahmet’s siblings are Dweezil Zappa, a successful musician, Moon Zappa who is an actress and Diva Zappa who is an artist. When it comes to his love life, he was married to actress Selma Blair for two years, but divorced in 2006. His second wife is a designer, stylist and writer, Shana Muldoon, who he married in 2010, and the couple have a daughter.

1I think what my father appreciated was the science experiment of life. He had these kids, and they had their own experiences. He wanted us to discover the world for ourselves.
2The way this whole novel thing came together was, I sold them one bill of goods and then didn't communicate very well. I am like Captain Run-on Sentence.
3My parents told us how they felt but never imposed their beliefs on us, although I appreciate I got a healthy sense of democracy from them.
4I collect things that just look retarded.
5I miss my Dad. My Dad loved cheesy monster movies, so we'd have Godzilla movie marathons. Those are some of my favorite memories, laughing at how the monster outfits were so bad, like black garbage bags for heads.
6I would ask my parents something, but then go to my siblings. We were encouraged to bounce ideas off everyone.
7When we had to do book reports, I would pick a book that no one read and just make it up and turn that in. I got praised for my imagination.
8My father would often work all night and sleep during the day, so for us, dinner might be pancakes, and breakfast might be beef stroganoff.
9I've always wanted to have a book published - it was a dream of mine, but the thought of actually writing a book made me feel really sick.
10At 12 I dropped out of school but I had lost interest in it at a much earlier age. For me, school was very very stressful.
11I definitely have managed to overcome dyslexia now to become a fully functional human being but things were a lot more difficult when I was younger.
12I picked books by their covers - the worse the cover, the more I wanted to read it.
13I had this whole ritual with my mother making the bed with me inside it so I would be invisible.
14I didn't read at all until I was 12. I just couldn't. It was too frustrating.
1Brother-in-law of Patrick Muldoon and Paul Doucette.
2Engaged to Selma Blair - October 2003
3Brother of Moon Unit Zappa, Dweezil Zappa, and Diva Zappa.
4Son of Frank Zappa and Gail Zappa.
