What is David Dobrik’s net worth? Inside millionaire YouTuber's empire and money lost after sexual assault scandal
In 2020, the 24-year-old Vlogger earned over $16 million from his work which includes various corporate sponsorships with brands like EA, Bumble, and SeatGeek
David Dobrik, the Internet sensation, deemed as Gen Z’s Jimmy Fallon has been losing followers after a series of sexual assault allegations were directed at his former Vlog Squad member, Durte Dom. Dobrik has also been under fire for encouraging non-consensual behavior for high viewership content. As a result, Dobrik, who was a co-founder of the app Dispo, has had to step away from the company while also losing other sponsorships.
The YouTuber who garnered more than 18 million subscribers since 2014, has also started losing followers at a rapid rate. Right after the sexual allegations first emerged, it was reported that Dobrik lost about 100,000 subscribers in a day. Along with Dobrik’s massive YouTube following, he has over 45 million followers in total across all his other social media accounts. In 2020, the 24-year-old vlogger had earned over $16 million from his work, which includes various corporate sponsorships with brands like EA, Bumble, and SeatGeek.
David Dobrik’s net worth
According to Celebrity Net Worth, David Dobrik has a sizeable fortune of $20 million, topping the chart as one of the most popular and highest-paid social media personalities in the world with his annual earnings. But a major chunk of his earning was the result of the very popular sponsorships he had attracted. Last week, Dobrik left the app ‘Dispo’ after it got a ton of negative reviews on the Apple store based on the controversies Dobrik has been embroiled in. Dobrik cited the reason for him leaving Dispo was “to not distract from the company’s growth.” Here's a list of all the sponsorships Dobrik has lost within a very short amount of time.
Dobrik has lost the sponsorship of HelloFresh, a meal-kit company, which provides doorstep delivery of fresh ingredients with easy-to-cook recipes and meal plans. The company stated, “We can confirm that we are no longer working with David Dobrik or any member of the Vlog Squad and do not have any plans to work with them again in the future.”
Following HelloFresh, a representative from EA Sports stated, the company “can confirm we are not currently working with him nor do we have any plans to in future.” EA Sports is a division of Electronic Arts (EA), the game developers. EA Sports focuses on developing and publishing sports video games.
Dollar Shave Club
A Dollar Shave Club rep stated, “We’ve made the decision to end our relationship and cancel all planned activity.” The American company, based in Venice, California, delivers razors and other personal grooming products to customers by mail.
SeatGeek, the mobile-based ticketing platform, and another sponsor for Dobrik’s channel has noted that they are currently reviewing their partnership contract.
Everything about recent sexual allegations
On March 16, an anonymous accuser told Insider that Durte Dom had raped her after she got drunk and was no longer in a position to give consent. Using the pseudonym "Hannah" for the accuser, Insider wrote that Durte Dom aka Dominykas Zeglaitis wanted to ‘hook up’ with her and her friends as seen from chat transcripts. Some of her friends were interested but asked, "The sexy stuff won't be in the vlog, right?" To which Zeglaitis replied, "Might need to take a pic just to show dave so he believes me haha!"
The accuser, who was then a 20-year-old sophomore at a private liberal-arts school in Los Angeles, told Insider that she couldn't have predicted what would happen that evening. In her account, the accuser said, "I was under the impression that we were going to meet these cool creators, we were going to hang out, maybe film something."
Dobrik filmed some of the portions of the night as content for a video that was later uploaded with the title "SHE SHOULD NOT HAVE PLAYED WITH FIRE!!" portraying a threesome plot. Before the video was deleted at the accuser's request, it was viewed 5 million times. All the other members of the Vlog Squad also appeared in the video.
David Dobrik addressed some of these issues in his least popular YouTube channel with just over a million subscribers; his other, popular YouTube channel's subscriber count is more than 18 million. In the video, he says that “consent is super, super important” and he is removing some of his old videos which he thinks do not represent who he is anymore.
