The ‘Teen Mom’ stars are well compensated when it comes to their TV appearances, but they turn to other streams of income as well.
Many of the moms run separate businesses whether it’s clothing lines, makeup stores, or social media work-related.
As of 2021, Chelsea is no longer filming for ‘Teen Mom 2’ and that automatically means that she won’t be getting any MTV money her way.
Chelsea cited privacy reasons for quitting the show but there’s certainly a financial angle to it as well.
The mom is now doing just fine by herself and her income from brand sponsorships + an eCommerce business she owns.
On her official webpage, Chelsea is described as an influencer that “helps brands drive millions in sales”.
She reportedly reaches more than 8.7 million people online through her social media channels.
Besides being an influencer, she generates income by running an online store called “Aubree Says”.
It launched in winter 2020 and the brand already has hundreds of thousands of fans on social media, sales are presumably high as well.
Just like Chelsea, Kailyn is an influencer as well. She charges companies a one-time fee for a single social media post and can charge up to $15,000 per post according to her following on Instagram.
Besides social media, she also owns a CBD Hair Care brand entitled “Pothead CBD”.
Leah also promotes brands on social media and can likely charge up to $10,000 per post on Instagram.
Besides social media gigs, Leah is also a best-selling author and has over 3,700 ratings of her book “Hope, Grace & Faith” on Amazon.
Briana’s ‘side hustle’ is somewhat different than that of her co-stars. She utilizes the platform called “OnlyFans” and makes money off of recurring fan subscriptions.
In the last few years, that has proven to be an effective way of making money for online stars and personalities.
In fact, Briana herself once stated that she’d make over $10,000 in a good week.
Maci’s money-making moves on social media are mainly aimed at promoting brands she’s related to.
She also posts news articles on her social media pages, generating side income in a hands-off way.
These are usually posted by media companies and Maci makes money via either a flat monthly fee or on a per-view basis.
