Derek Jeter and Michael Jordan are among 16 investors who are set to buy the Miami Marlins, and Chrissy Teigen wants to be an owner too.
Yes, the model and co-host of “Lip Sync Battle” wants to expand her portfolio into sports.
How much money is that? Well, Jeter is reportedly investing $25 million of his own money into the Marlins, and current Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria is selling the franchise for $1.2 billion.
Does Teigen have “buying teams money”?
CelebrityNetWorth.com said Teigen was worth $10 million, but that was in 2013 — months before she married John Legend, a year before she landed on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue and two years before “Lip Sync Battle” premiered. In 2010, TheRichest.com valued her at $2 million.
Safe to say, her stardom has gone up since then.
OK, so what teams can Teigen realistically partially own?
We can comfortably rule out the Dallas Cowboys, who are valued at $4.2 billion, and the New York Yankees, who are valued at $3.7 billion.
Forbes’ list of the top 51 sports franchises in the world ends with a tie between the New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, both valued at $1.75 billion.
While no NHL, F1 or NASCAR teams were in Forbes’ top 51, it seems Teigen has a team in mind.
Forbes values the Browns $1.85 billion. That’s more than what Beyonce and Jay-Z are worth.
