Fashion designer and model, Lesa Milan is also a reality star on the Bravo series The Real Housewives of Dubai (RHODubai). She is the founder of the Mina Roe maternity clothing brand and owns a children’s book and toy company called My Little Makers. Lesa Milan has a net worth of $5 million from her success as an entrepreneur.
Milan was born Lesa-Gayle Wee Tom on March 23, 1989 and is from Kingston, Jamaica. There, she became a renowned model, participating in major beauty pageants.
After starting early as a teen, she got the chance to win the title of Miss Jamaica in 2009. With this, she represented her motherland in the Miss International beauty pageant the following year.
However, the Jamaican beauty spent much of her early years in the United States. She went to Florida Atlantic University and studied journalism. Lesa also minored in tourism and hospital management.
It was during her modeling days that Lesa made her television debut. In 2008, she joined the cast of College Hill on the BET network. Although she left after a year, it helped launch her career in business.
After becoming a mother, Milan was inspired to design clothes for all stages of motherhood. She started a luxury maternity apparel line, Mina Roe, which has been promoted by celebrities such as Beyoncé.
Furthermore, while raising her children, she had the idea of creating tools that would help their learning process. Thus, she launched My Little Makers to give toddlers to objects that promote learning and development.
After a long break from reality television, Lesa Milan is back with The Real Housewives of Dubai. The show started airing in 2022, and it helped viewers catch up on what happened to the star.
Lesa is now married to Richard Hall, a real estate developer and finance officer. As the series is ongoing, viewers are excited to know what type of chemistry Lesa and Richard have.
Apart from her personal affairs, the show also documents Milan’s business projects. The entrepreneur announced that she would be releasing clothes not only for mothers but for ladies of all shapes and sizes.
Net Worth and Earnings
The primary cast members on RHODubai earn at least $100,000 per season. However, this is not her main source of income as she runs multiple successful businesses.
Her Mina Roe brand alone is worth anywhere between $10 and $50 million. This figure is expected to grow in the coming years as the firm gets more exposure and is planning to expand. But for now, her net worth still sits at $5 million.
In 2009, it was confirmed that Lesa Milan was dating the fastest man alive, Usain Bolt. They eventually broke up. The television personality got married to Richard Hall in early 2014.
Richard also has a net worth of $5 million. This is why they can afford a lavish property in Dubai, UAE, where they are raising three boys together: Kristian, Sebastian, and Maximilian.
