Matt Willis Net Worth 2020, Bio, Education, Career, and Achievement.
Mathew James “Matt” Willis (born 8 May 1983), also previously known as Mattie Jay, is an English singer-songwriter, television presenter, and actor, best known as the bassist and one of the vocalists of the pop-punk band, Busted.
Willis was born in Tooting in London on 8 May 1983. He has an older brother, Darren, but their parents split up when he was only 3 years old.
His mother later remarried and had his half-sister, Amanda, who is an ambassador for a charity called Whizz-Kidz.
Willis has had three different last names legally while growing up. Even though his original last name was Willis, after his father, this was changed to Woods after his parents split and later changed to Sargent after his mother married her current husband.
Willis has made it clear that he was a “problem” child, regularly sneaking out of the house by shimmying down drain pipes.
He also as a child suffered from tunnel vision, asthma, and hyperactivity problems.
Willis attended Woking High School after being asked to leave his previous secondary school, before leaving to attend the independent fee-paying Sylvia Young Theatre School in Marylebone, London, where he met his now close friends Lee Ryan, Tom Fletcher, Billie Piper, Jodi Albert, and Amy Winehouse, who had said that she fancied Willis at school.
Willis first found fame in the music industry as one-third of the pop-rock band, Busted.
The band’s bassist and vocalist, Willis formed the band as well as co-writing almost all of their songs along with Charlie Simpson, James Bourne, and Tom Fletcher although the latter was a member of McFly.
During their career, the trio became successful in Britain and began an upsurge of pop-punk popularity.
They had several chart successes and released two studio albums, one live album and a compilation of their greatest hits, available in America.
The band disbanded in 2005 due to Simpson leaving to pursue other projects.
On November 10, Busted announced via their official website and Social Media that the band was to reform with a 13-date tour starting in 2016.
Due to phenomenal demand more dates were added to the tour. Busted released their third studio album, Night Driver, on November 25, 2016.
After a brief stint in rehab after Busted split, Matt launched a solo career on Mercury Records, releasing singles in 2005 and 2006, “Up All Night”, “Hey Kid”, “Don’t Let It Go to Waste”, and a cover version of The Primitives song, “Crash” for the film Mr Bean’s Holiday.
Just as he was about to depart on his first solo UK Tour with support band The Riverclub, he sacked his agents of six years ‘Prestige Management’.
He then decided to leave his record label Mercury Records. “It’s not a simple case of dropping an artist but just that we both felt we had reached a point where we could no longer move forwards.”
Willis wrote on Twitter that he was planning a second album however it never came into fruition.
However, there are so many factors that affect a celebrity’s net worth, such as taxes, management fees, investments or losses, marriage.
