Chaz Bono, who recently took the world by storm with his gender transition, is an American entertainer. Ironically, Chaz garnered more publicity for his personal issues rather than his professional career. Whatever the reason for his publicity maybe, but the talented actor is an inspiration for the people.

Maybe you know about Chaz Bono very well But do you know how old and tall is he and what is his net worth in 2024? If you do not know, We have prepared this article about details of Chaz Bono’s short biography-wiki, career, professional life, personal life, today’s net worth, age, height, weight, and more facts. Well, if you’re ready, let’s start.

Early life

The American actor, writer, musician, and advocate, Chaz Bono, was born as a girl named Chastity Bono on March 4, 1969, in Los Angeles, US. He is the only child of popular entertainers Sonny and Cher. Having born in a glamorous world, Chaz Bono was meant to be an artist.

He attended ‘High School for Performing Arts’ and learned music skills. He later enrolled at New York University but left it in midway to pursue his dreams in music. When he was a teenager, his parents got divorced, so most of his childhood went on shuffling between his parents’ home.

Chaz Bono’s personal life has been struggling. During 2008-10, he underwent the gender transition surgery, and in 2010, he legally became a boy from a girl. He legally changed his name and gender and came out as Chaz Bono from Chastity Bono. Due to the fact, his love life has also been different from the others. He was reportedly dated Jenifer Eila during 2005, but the couple parted their way in 2011 after the engagement. After that, there hasn’t been any rumour of his linkups.

Age, Height, and Weight

Being born on 4 March 1969, Chaz Bono is 55 years old as of today’s date 15th June 2024. His height is 1.68 m tall, and weight is 105 kg.


Chaz is the son of great entertainers, so he had not only a privileged childhood but also a privileged career opportunity. He made his silver screen debut as a toddler itself. As a kid, he was starred in his parents’ TV show ‘The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour’. In this show, he appeared as a girl.

As he was not much interested in acting, he pursued his dreams of singing and formed a band named ‘Ceremony with friend Chance’. In the band, he performed as a lead singer and guitarist. Initially, the band managed to land a couple of big contracts. Chaz even released his first and only album titled ‘Hang Out Your Poetry’ during those initial successful years but soon, the band failed miserably.

Chaz quit singing, and after a few years, he came out as a writer and an advocate. He consecutively published two books which both revolved around his personal sexual orientation and his and his family’s struggle to deal with it. He also became the spokesperson for ‘Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. Following that, he was inactive for some years due to his personal issues. In 2011, he again authored a book titled ‘Transition: The Story of How I Became a Man’. This book drew public attention and made him famous.

Awards & achievements

Chaz Bono could have a successful career neither in acting nor in singing. So, he hasn’t won any awards for his works in these fields. However, he bagged GLAAD Media Awards for his support to the gay & lesbian community.

The American writer, advocate, actor, and singer has an eventful career. Over his entire career, he couldn’t focus on a single thing. Maybe that’s why he couldn’t amass a giant net worth. As of today, the 49-year-old actor has a net worth of $1 million as of June 2024.

He has made this money equally through acting, singing, and writing. His personal life affected his professional life, but now, the actor has managed to put the things on track. Right now, he hasn’t inherited his parent’s wealth but being the only child; he is going to be the owner of that whole property.

Coming out so explicitly about your personal life is not at all easy. Chaz Bono is a courageous man who not only accepted the truth but also successfully handled it.


  1. It’s wet and miserable here in the north of Ireland and summer is passing by, unable to do much but lie here reading stories from around the globe with one story leading and linking to another I finally came to this story.
    First I must back page to where it started with me listening to Cher then to her mother and finally her sister I didn’t know they were a complete all rounder successful talented family. I came across the show where Cher and her daughter Chastity Bono were dressed in matching outfits and doing what looked like an ad lib routine, that is the first I knew that Cher had a child.
    I watched this beautiful little blonde haired child play a game with her mum one that they said they played at home which was each one takes it in turn to close their eyes and talk about what the other looks like the colour of hair eyes what they’re wearing and so on, it was a loving moment to watch and feel the obvious love between mother and child however it was that that lead me to this story as I was curious as to where is Chastity Bono now.
    It was of no surprise to me to read Chastity Bono was now Chaz Bono because when watching Chaz from all those years ago on the show with his mother there was a moment for me that I realised this little blonde haired girl was not suited to the outfit she had on her stature and especially how she walked. The audience laughed at how Chastity walked and mum Cher put her finger to her mouth expressing hush! it was obvious Chastity was sensitive and mum very protective although no one should dress their little Tom boys in feminist clothing. It’s not hard to see if your little one is girlie or tom doesn’t for a moment suggest there’s a gender problem more less chance of increasing on a phycological one, I can see that Cher herself is a Tom some of the characteristics never leave and maybe Cher saw herself in Chastity and thought, yeah! I’ve been there things will be alright but we all know some don’t leave there it won’t be alright and its very difficult for those children. I can only wish happiness and health to all of this family whom I don’t know and really don’t know.
    if ever you read this Chaz Bono remember always be yourself, life is hard enough without trying to be someone else, good luck in all you do.
    I have never sat down and commented online ever before I don’t have any of the social network accounts only my email but this story compelled me to write something. It has taken me over an hour to decide to press the Post Command as I feel who am I to comment on any ones life!

  2. I should have read through what I wrote and corrected my grammar, probably the reason why I have never wrote a reply before.
    I’m embarrassed and my apologies.
