Ahmet Zappa Net Worth

Ahmet Zappa was bornon May 15, 1974 in Los Angeles, California, USA, United States, is Writer, Actor. Though the glamorous world of movies is recognised for its superstars, filmmakers, and their multi-million grosser flicks, there are also many who are less known but have been in the movie industry for decades. Ahmet Zappa is one such artist who has been a part of a dozen movie and television projects for over three decades, with most of his roles being less remembered by audiences. Unlike most other actors, Ahmet also proved his mettle as a writer by penning the children’s bestseller ‘The Monstrous Memoirs of a Mighty Mcfearless’. Ironically, Ahmet was dreaded by the thought of reading books during his childhood, the reason being Dyslexia. Many television shows have become memorable ones for their audiences, thanks to Ahmet’s incredible hosting skills. Right from his childhood, Ahmet has been unconventional in more ways than one. His father let Ahmet discover the world all by himself without interfering much like any typical parent. Even with his choice of books, Ahmet has apparently stated quite a few times that he often chose books with covers that might seem uninteresting or boring to the average human eye. Perhaps, this could have been a reason which helped Ahmet shape his identity in the world of glamour.

Biography/Timeline

1957

"His first name was that of an imaginary person we always had hanging around back when we had no one on our payroll," Gail told Victoria Balfour. "We'd snap our fingers and say, 'Ahmet? Dishes. Coffee, please.' He was also named after a giant pterodactyl that would have ravaged the world if the Japanese film Director Ishiro Honda hadn't destroyed it in 1957."

1990

He has appeared in several feature films and television programs. In the late 1990s, he appeared on Channel 4 UK's The Adam and Joe Show, in a regular segment called "Vinyl Justice", in which hosts Adam Buxton and Joe Cornish, dressed as policemen, examined his vinyl collection for "criminal records". In 2000, he appeared in the film Ready to Rumble. With his brother Dweezil, he performed a cover of Britney Spears' song "...Baby One More Time" for the film's Soundtrack. Other appearances include hosting the TV shows Robotica and But Can They Sing?.

2004

Zappa married Actress Selma Blair on January 24, 2004, at Carrie Fisher's mansion in Beverly Hills, California. Blair filed for divorce at the Los Angeles Superior Court on June 21, 2006, citing irreconcilable differences. In a statement to People, a spokesman for the couple said, "Selma and Ahmet have decided to divorce but love each other very much and will continue to be close friends".

2006

Under Ahmet's direction, the trust proposed a trademark on the name Zappa, which would prevent Dweezil from using the name for commercial purposes without authorization. Since 2006, Dweezil toured with an act called Zappa Plays Zappa, playing his father's music. The trust sought to collect a fee of $1 from Dweezil for continued use of the name, as well as proceeds from merchandise sold at Zappa Plays Zappa concerts. In response to the trust’s action, Dweezil renamed his performance series “50 Years of Frank: Dweezil Zappa Plays Whatever the [email protected]%k He Wants — the Cease and Desist Tour.

2014

Zappa is now married to Shana Muldoon — designer, Writer, and creator of Disney Star Darlings and the sister of actor Patrick Muldoon. They have a daughter, Halo Violetta Zappa, born in 2010.

2015

Following the death of Zappa's mother, Gail, in October 2015, it was revealed that Ahmet and his sister Diva were given control of the Zappa Family Trust with shares of 30% each, while his siblings Moon and Dweezil were given smaller shares of 20% each. As beneficiaries only, Moon and Dweezil will not see any money from the trust until it is profitable—in 2016, it was "millions of dollars in debt"—and must seek permission from Ahmet, the trustee, to make money off of their father's music or merchandise bearing his name. The uneven divide of the trust has resulted in several conflicts between Zappa's children, including a feud between Dweezil and Ahmet over Dweezil's use of his father's music in live performances.
