Award-winning rapper Peter Gunz has moved from music into reality TV, and is now better known for appearing on Love and Hip Hop. But the truth is he has more children than his yearly income figures.
Peter, whose height of fame came when he collaborated with Lord Tariq, allowed cameras to document his relationship with Amina Buddafly, who he was married to for five years – until 2018.
However, as he flaunts his wealth on LAHH, many are wondering just how much he is worth. With more children than the amount of figures in his yearly salary, he’s not the only one enjoying the money.

Peter Gunz’ children
Peter is a father to a total of ten children from four different women, which includes Whitney, Brandon, Phoenix, Kennedi, Cory Gunz, Bronx Pankey, Cori Gunz, Gunner Ethan Pankey, Kaz Pankey, and Jamison “Juice” Pankey.
Bronx and older sister Cori are shared with his ex-wife Amina Buddafly, while he has three other children Kaz, Jamison and Gunner with his co-star Tara Wallace who he was with for 13 years, from 2000 to 2013.
At the time Amina got married to Peter, he already had seven children, and by the time she filed for divorce in 2018, the LAHH star was a father-of-ten, and grandfather to one child.
The LAHH star’s net worth
Peter Gunz made most of his $1million net worth in his prime time, when he collaborated with Lord Tariq to become a music duo. Both from The Bronx, New York, they are best known for their 1997 single “Deja Vu (Uptown Baby)”.
The single climbed into the top ten on the US Billboard Hot 100, topped the Billboard Hot Rap Songs chart, and reached #21 on the UK Singles Chart in May 1998, a year before they ended up splitting as a duo.
That’s not all, as they made a fortune from that one song. Peter and Lord Tariq were certified platinum by the RIAA for sales of over one million. Following the track’s success, they released their only album in 1998, Make It Reign.
Since then, the rapper has kept up his award-winning fortune by appearing on Love and Hip Hop, which he has been on since 2013, and becoming the new host of the long-running reality series Cheaters from 2020 onwards.

His six-figure salary
Peter is thought to make $100K a year for appearing on Love and Hip Hop. While he hasn’t directly spoken out about his annual income, his total earnings each year add up to around $400K, if not more, according to reports.
Amina and Tara are both in favour of his Cheaters host gig. As per Baller Alert, he revealed:
I want to help people get into therapy and try to change relationships. I’m not here to mess up people’s happy homes, especially after all the s**t I did. My exes are extremely supportive of it. They’re not mad about it. They think it fits me and they’ll get 80 percent of (the salary). I’m not joking.
Considering his co-stars Karlie Redd and Tommie Lee are making $50,000 and $17,000 per season, there’s a pretty wide gap for salaries on the VH1 show, and it all depends on how much each star is worth.
As per US Weekly, MTV2 host of Ridiculousness Rob Dyrdek is paid $35,000 an episode to host the gig, which airs on the same network as Cheaters. Therefore, it can only be assumed that Peter is getting paid around the same amount.
