Have the Island Boys lost their net worth after alleged murder?
TikTok has shown us anyone can get a million views and a million dollars if it stands in the right place at the right time. But what easily comes easy goes, and this is definitely the case with The Island Boys. In case you have the luck of not knowing who these guys are, know that they’re TikTok stars that went viral with a song under the name “I’m an Island Boy”.
Island Boys are twin brothers Franky Venegas & Alex Venegas, although these could not be their real names. They usually go by the name Island boy & Island boy 2. However, these twins didn’t get viral because of their talent but the whole opposite in fact. They’ve shown arrogance in several interviews that honestly only prove that they’re both completely ignorant of what they want.
It’s unclear whether or not their one-hit-wonder fame is the reason for the decrease in net worth, but maybe alleged murder has caused a dip. Here’s everything you need to know about the Island Boys and their net worth.
Crash and burn
The Island Brother duo owns a popular Instagram account with more than one million followers and has been featured on TV shows like Ellen and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The twins have achieved several important goals as well as making their own money, but their career is falling apart each time faster. Not only have they lost all mediatic respect & credibility but their views and numbers, in general, are getting lower each time. According to their ex-manager who they still owe $1500, the viral TikTok stars have gone broke.
Before contacting their manager, The Island Boys were living at a hotel. Their ex-manager got them a proper house to rent, which they haven’t paid for maintenance. The twins are also facing numerous lawsuits as well as hefty legal fees to retain lawyers. Yet, alleged financial troubles might end if they enter into an influencer’s boxing competition that promises a million-dollar reward.
According to experts, they were destined to fail since they didn’t have a decent skill set or product. Their most famous video went viral not because they were talented but the opposite. Nonetheless, they showed narcissistic behavior in Logan Paul’s podcast by saying all their haters come from jealousy and denying listening to other rappers. They also left offended when they were given a piece of financial advice.
When they were asked about their future plans for the next five years their response was “always being top at the billboard in music”. The truth is they’re far from that, in fact, in 2021 they were booked to sing a Club Liv in Miami and were booed by the entire audience.
The Island Boys’ home got raided and a suspect was arrested on suspicion of murdering an eight-year-old girl. The young girl was caught up in a drive-by shooting and Franky Venegas & Alex Venegas’s childhood friend Andrew James Thomas were responsible.
Speaking to TMZ, the Island Boys’ manager insisted no one knew about the drive-by shooting, saying they only knew Thomas as “a quiet kid and he would come and hang out and do his thing and go back to whatever he got going on. But we had no clue about any of these allegations toward him.”
Falling net worth
According to several internet sources, The Island Boy’s net worth strands around $700,000. However, if they really had that money they wouldn’t have all this conspiracy behind them, nor all the debts that clearly can’t pay. Sadly, these boys are starting to be hated each time, but they could maintain a good net worth if they used their visibility with a good strategy behind them. Clearly, that won’t be the case.
