Charlie Brake Net Worth: Where Does It Come From?
Charlie Brake’s net worth left fans astounded as to why he even needed a spot on the TV reality show. But where do his family’s millions come from?
Entering the Love Island villa in 2018, Charlie Brake decided to keep his eye-watering fortune a secret. So as to attract true love. And whilst this move made him appear incredibly humble, his Instagram snaps sell a different message.
Living a lavish lifestyle in a pretty posh pad, the socialite travels abroad regularly, staying in hotels such as The Ritz.
What Is Charlie Brake’s Net Worth?
Charlie Brake’s net worth mainly comes from his family business, who ran the Brakes food catering company.
Whilst Charlie divulged on Love Island, that the food distribution company had sold for £400 million, the telegraph had reported that the Brake family sold the company back in 2016 for a whopping £2.2 billion.
His Latest Controversy
Amid the latest Black Lives Matter movement, Charlie Brake has issued an apology after fans called him out on a tweet in which he appeared to support Donald Trump.
Trump’s tweet referred to the riots in America in response to George Floyd being killed by a police offer.
Trump originally tweeted:
‘These THUGS are dishonouring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen.’
The President went on to warn that anybody looting would be shot by law officials as he added: ‘Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!’
Charlie Brake retweeted the post with the comment:
‘Moral of the story… don’t loot or thieve. SIMPLE.’
He has since deleted his Twitter account and posted an apology on his Instagram.
The reality star wrote:
“About my post yesterday. It was absolutely not my intention to cause offence. Straight off, I want to say I am sorry and I did not understand the full picture of an incredibly serious situation.
“I don’t think my ignorance should be an excuse and I don’t want to make excuses. This is an apology. I am probably the epitome of white privilege.”
“I can’t change the world I was born in to but I can show & offer my full support,’ he added. ‘My every sympathy goes out to George Floyd’s family and every other family impacted by racial injustice.”
