Behind Ian Corner's Net Worth
Despite his shorter stature, Ian made a name for himself as a fashion model. Modeling for reputed brands such as Kanye West's Yeezys, Drake's OVO fashion line, Bape as well as Midnight Studios.
He rose to prominence in 2012 as a stylish through Tumblr. Then 19-year-old Ian was the brainchild behind the crew L3NF, which comprised of Glyn Brown, Ken Rebel, Ade Oyeyemi and Joo Henderson.
Soon more success followed. Later that year, Complex named him one of the 25 Under 25: The Young Leader of Style list. Additionally, the New York rap collective A$AP Mob introduced him as its newest member.
Using his influencer and street culture phenom status, Ian has amassed a hefty net worth - a seven-figure sum, if one were to make a guess.
For four years since becoming a household name, Ian maintained a squeaky clean image. Then, came a slew of rape allegations against him.

In April 2016, Malika Anderson - a master's student at Columbia University, wrote in her blog post that he had raped her. That very month, Chicago based recording artist Jean Deaux followed suit and claimed the same.
Two months later, another woman named Khaditia Diallo gave an interview revealing how Ian had raped her. At the time of the incident, Khaditia claimed that she was 16 and still a virgin.
Three additional women - Jenni Stampley, Taryn Williams and “Alyssa” - have come forth alleging the 26-year-old of rape.
To this day, Ian maintains his innocence and continues to deny all the allegations. Hip Hop as well as the fashion industry, for their part, remain wary about the rape accusations.
Dating & Girlfriend
Despite all the negativity surrounding his public image, Ian's dating life never faltered - to some degree.
Like his peers, the stylish-turned-model isn't the type to cling onto his ex-girlfriends or anyone for that matter. To him, romance is as much a routine as it is a pure biological need. In 2015 Complex interview, he explained:-
"Nah, I like what I like. I could fu** the baddest of the bad, I could fu** the wackest of the wack. Either way, it’s the same thing: I’m getting my nut. You’re a physical being. Yeah, I want to fuck you but it’s not like I necessarily care too much."
Post-rape accusations, very little change occurred. Taking to Twitter, Ian regularly bellowed the problems of dating and everything romance.
