Paul DelVecchio, most known as Pauly D, is making around $11 million a year in appearance fees and endorsements, according to Forbes magazine.
Pauly told Forbes, “Everybody was skeptical at first, because how everybody heard about me is probably from Jersey Shore.
“But . . . I’ve been touring all over the country, touring with major pop acts and stuff like that. That legitimizes everything, and they’re starting to say, ‘This kid isn’t just a reality star, he’s an actual DJ.’”
The DJ is the top earner of all the Jersey Shore cast and ranks at #7 in the highest paid DJ list.
Pauly began working in Rhode Island for around $300 a night, but is now earning $40,000 a night for club appearances.
The reality star also opened for Britney Spears on her Femme Fatale tour.
