Stefano Gabbana’s Net Worth In 2020
Stefano and Domenico, who met while working at designer Giorgio Correggiari, left to work on their own brand in 1983. They launched Dolce & Gabbana two years later.
The half of fashion brand Dolce & Gabbana grabbed huge attention after Madonna chose the fashion house to design customs for her Girlie tour.
As of 2020, Stefano Gabbana’s net worth is reported to be around $1.9 billion, according to Forbes. However, The Richest claims that his worth is $1.61 billion, and Celebrity Net Worth claims it to be $1.7 billion. His annual income is around $10 million.
Back in 2015, Stefano was regarded as the 28th wealthiest person in Italy. His net worth during the time was $1.56 billion.
Dolce & Gabbana Kept Their House On Sale
The former couple Stefano Gabbana and Dolce listed their luxury sea-front Sicilian villa on sale for the worth of $7.3 million. The house consists of seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
Their classic Mediterranean architecture villa was built after the developers merged three local buildings. The mansion covers the total area of 5382 square feet.
Stefano And Domenico Were In A Relationship
The founder of D&G are not only business partners; they were life partners as well. As per sources, they were in a relationship since the beginning of the fashion house.
They dated for almost two decades before going on separate ways in 2003. While they in a relationship, the former pair even owned numerous properties on French Riviera.
Now, even after the separation, the two claim that they take one another as a family member. They also still work together at their fashion house.
After separation, neither Stefano nor Dolce has ever opened up about their relationship status. They might have found partners but did not reveal the news in the media.
Legal Issues And Controversies
Once in 2013, the two were convicted of tax evasion. One of the Italian courts revealed that they were found guilty of failing to pay tax earned via their subsidiary company, Gado. They denied the claims and appeared the case, both getting cleared in October 2014.
Dolce once claimed that the babies born via in vitro fertilization are chemistry children and synthetic children. During the time, singer Elton John requested to boycott their brand. It sparkled the word war, and Gabbana claimed the singer a “fascist.”
Similarly, on 21st November 2018, Stefano made racial comments regarding China calling the country of shit. Later, it was claimed that the account was hacked. At the time, the Shanghai D&G Great Show 2018 was also canceled.
