Occupation: Actor and comedian
Duane Martin was born in Brooklyn, New York on August 11, 1970. He is the son-in-law of Clifton and Mona Campbell and the brother-in-law of Jermaine Campbell.
Residing in New York, he attended and graduated New York University. A talented basketball player, Duane played NCAA Division III basketball at NYU. Duane was eventually signed as an un-drafted free agent to a non-guaranteed contract with the New York Knicks in 1989. Unfortunately for Duane, he didn’t play a single game and was cut by the NBA team due to an injury.
Duane has been married to Tisha Campbell since 1996. They have two children, Xen and Ezekiel. The family presently resides in Los Angeles, California.
Since he was unable to make it in the NBA, Duane turned his attention to acting. For years, he appeared in various motion pictures, television shows and music videos in small parts. Duane made his television debut in the NBC comedy show “Out All Night.” He made his film debut in the hit movie “White Men Can’t Jump” and starred alongside Tupac in the motion picture “Above the Rim.”
For the last couple of decades, Duane has appeared in “The Faculty,” “Seat Filler,” “Yes, Dear,” “Any Given Sunday” and “All of Us.” He is best known for the portrayal of himself in the popular BET comedy “Real Husbands of Hollywood.”
Duane has been nominated for two BET acting awards for his roles in “Deliver Us From Eva” and “All of Us.” He was also nominated for a DayTime Emmy Award for his participation in “CBS Schoolbreak Special.”
He has ventured outside of the entertainment industry. He launched his own real estate company after building an extensive portfolio of real estate holdings. The purpose behind Duane’s real estate firm is to revitalize homes in the inner-city by providing low-income families with the opportunity to become homeowners.
The Martin family experienced a considerable setback in 2016. Duane and Tisha filed for bankruptcy after claiming $15 million in debts with just $313,000 in assets. Some of the debts include payments on five motorcycles, two leased Range Rovers and a Jeep Wrangler.
We estimate that Duane Martin’s net worth is negative $15 million (2016).
So how much is negative $15 million really?
