Lenard is a South California guy born on June 29, 1978. He is married to Jessica Gadsden who was actually his high school girlfriend. They were together for 16 years but got hitched in September 2014. There are no such social appearances of their children, but if sources are to be believed, the couple has 2 daughters.
He is said to have a personality of ‘calling spade a spade’ which we have seen multiple times. He is the limelight of controversy by being blunt about transgenders. The whole scenario became very direct when Trans activists came on his show and shouted that they are not a joke.
The controversy is actually not started by Lenard but one of his shows ‘The Breakfast club’ guest Lil Duval who said he would kill his partner if revealed that she is a Trans. To which Lenard agreed and stated that these women should go to jail. This heated up every statement made, resulting in massive outrage and building up the pressure to boycott the show.
There are only unnamed sources that reveal little about his marriage and children at certain intervals. As his professional graph is moving, he is trying to settle down with MTV shows, and writing and probably something interesting is on his way.
Lenard started making money by selling drugs at teenage. He has been arrested thrice by the police and third time his father denied his bail. At last, he called his mother and got released after 41 days.
He began his career as a Radio Intern after attending night school after jail days. He got his name Charlamagne when he joined Wendy Williams as a second mic. He wanted to give a title which sounded cool and thus ‘Tha God’, and the prefix is influenced by drug dealing. His relationships with Wendy Williams went bitter when he offended some of the celebrities on the show by asking inappropriate questions.
As a television personality, he is still connected with MTV2 and has done 5 shows out of which one is still running. Some are titled with his name like ‘Charlamagne & Friends’ and ‘Uncommon Sense with Charlamagne Tha God’ (current one).
Apart from radio and television presence, he is the author of a book titled as ‘Black Privilege’. It is published by Simon & Schuster. He has shared his success story and humorously called himself ‘Prince of Pissing People Off’ which everybody can agree upon.
He has recorded an album called as ‘South Crack’ in 2008 and is a part of 16 films of which 13 are the ones where he played the role of his own personality, i.e. Charlamagne Tha God. Rests are roles of cop, Black Jesus and Shottah.

Net worth of Charlamagne Tha God
He possesses $10 Million of net worth from all the sources include radio, television, writing, discography and films.
He is an outspoken character which went wrong many times, but he is sport enough to clarify his part at the end. However, the outrage made once is hard to crack and haters add value to it for some obvious reasons of course. This is more of unlikely success, i.e. by being blunt, and he even discusses it in the book he has written. He keeps his personal life completely out of the camera shutter.
