YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg is one of the most popular creators on the platform, with over 91 million subscribers thanks to his battle against Bollywood label T-Series.

Due to his overwhelming popularity on the website, many fans have speculated how much money the YouTuber actually earns, with sites like Forbes suggesting that PewDiePie rakes in nearly $12 million per year.

PewDiePie opened up about the subject in a video on March 29, where he answered some of Google’s top questions about him – including how much money he makes.

PewDiePie, YouTubeWhile PewDiePie didn’t state his exact daily earnings, he hinted that he earns around $3,400 per hour in a 40-hour work week – equaling nearly $7 million a year.

One article suggested that the YouTuber earns a total of $3,400 per hour in an estimated 40-hour work week, which he didn’t appear to deny.

“I don’t know exactly how much I make per day,” PewDiePie admitted. “That doesn’t seem too far off, which is pretty crazy when you think about it.”

If PewDiePie’s statement is true, that would mean the YouTuber rakes in nearly $7 million a year.

Despite his apparent financial status, PewDiePie asserted a firm belief that “money isn’t everything,” and even claimed to live a modest life to avoid being changed by his monetary success.

“I obviously didn’t start YouTube to make money,” he said of his wealth. “…Considering how much I make, I try to live modestly, because I don’t want to – I want to live a normal life. I don’t want the money to change my life.”

The YouTuber went on to outline his future financial goals, claiming that he hopes to save up enough dough to buy a house in Japan for future holiday visits – as well as amass a decent retirement fund.

While he didn’t state his exact net worth, PewDiePie did reveal that he was “definitely” worth more than $20 million, as estimated by another site’s analytics.

While PewDiePie rose to fame thanks to his horror game playthroughs, the YouTuber has since amassed a massive following on the website due to his battle with T-Series, which went on for nearly half a year.

While the label has since surpassed Kjellberg by 80,000 subscribers as of March 29, he managed to reach a record-breaking 91 million sub count in the process, and still reigns as YouTube’s most-subscribed independent creator.

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

xQc has over four million followers on Twitch.

xQc reached out to LS during T1 fans backlash

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
