Celebrities Who Were Already Rich Before Becoming Famous

Lana Del Rey

The singer-songwriter born Elizabeth Woolridge Grant made a name for herself after debuting with her self-titled debut album Lana Del Rey back in 2010. Since then, Lana Del Rey’s sound and song-writing acumen has made her one of the most played artists in the world – though she was born into a rather wealthy family. Her father, Robert England Grant Jr., worked as a domain developer and eventually became a multi-millionaire when he was named an executive at a company called Grey Group. Though her father certainly could have helped fund her fledgling music career, reports are that Del Rey did not receive any financial assistance from her parents on her way to stardom.
