The Riches of Khalyla
How rich is Khalyla? As of mid-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $200,000, earned through success in her various endeavors. Her wealth has been potentially elevated significantly thanks to her husband, who has an estimated net worth over $1 million. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Very limited information is available about Khalyla before her rise to fame and association with Bobby Lee. According to her, she is half Filipino and half Egyptian, and while she was born in the Philippines, her family then migrated to the US where she would grow up alongside a sister. After matriculating from high school, she enrolled into college to study for a degree in biochemistry.
While studying, she earned extra income by working as a tutor, helping anatomy, microbiology, and physiology students who were having trouble. Later on, long after she completed her degree, her fame increased significantly thanks to her association with Bobby Lee. This in turn made her popularity on social media skyrocket, particularly on the website Instagram, a photo and video sharing website owned by Facebook. It was launched in 2010 and allows users to upload content for the public, or to pre-approved followers. Content can be edited through the use of filters and organized with the use of tags as well as location information.
MMA and Podcasting
Khalyla has been highly interested in sports since a young age, and has followed numerous professional leagues. Her biggest passion, however, lies with mixed martial arts (MMA). It is a full contact combat sport which allows for striking and grappling. Competitors use techniques from various martial arts and has gained popularity in the last few decades. One of the most popular and the biggest promotion for the sport is Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), which boasts having many of the top fighters from around the world.
She along with her husband would later start a video podcast on the website YouTube, entitled TigerBelly, which has gained a massive amount of popularity with over 300,000 subscribers. Their podcast revolved around their life as Asians in America, discussing politics, the entertainment industry, sexuality, racism, adolescence, ethnicity, and more. During the latter part of the podcast, the duo answer questions from readers on a segment called Unhelpful Advice. They also have a feature called The MMA minute, on which both hosts discus mixed martial arts. Khalyla wasn’t originally planned to be on the podcasts, but after trying it out in the first episode, the duo had a lot of chemistry, leading the show to move forward with the both of them
