The Net Worth of Martie Allen
How rich is Martie Allen? As of mid-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $300,000, earned through success in her various endeavors. Her wealth has potentially been significantly increased thanks to her association with McNichol, who has a net worth estimated to be over $7 million. Assuming that she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Career
Very little is known about Martie’s life before her association with Kristy, as she hasn’t revealed a lot of details regarding her family, childhood and education. She was relatively out of the spotlight for most of her life, and even during the start of their relationship, as a lesbian couple was not as openly accepted as they are today.
She dreamed of a career in acting, or working in the entertainment industry but was not able to achieve it. Instead, she lived through the success and career of her partner, who became a part of many notable projects during the 1970s up to the 1990s. However, she has mainly remained in the background, and even details about her career aren’t known. Despite that, all indications from McNichol point to a good relationship between the two, being together for many decades which is something unusual for the ever shifting world of actors and their relationships.
Wife – Kristy McNichol
Born in 1962, Kristy grew up in Los Angeles, California, and was exposed to the entertainment industry at a young age, appearing in commercials alongside her brother. She later did her own commercials which would lead her to guest appearances in popular shows of the time, including “Starsky & Hutch”, “Love American Style”, and “The Bionic Woman”. The family was gaining a lot of opportunities thanks to their family friend Desi Arnaz, and in 1976 she was cast in the television series “Family” as Letitia “Buddy” Lawrence, a role which earned her two Emmy Awards for Best Supporting Actress.
She stayed with the show for four years up to its end, and then did several musical numbers with The Carpenters. During the peak of her career, she was one of the biggest teen stars at the time, appearing in popular talk shows and starring in the television movie “Summer of My German Soldier”. In 1977 she started her film career, working on “Black Sunday” before getting cast as the lead of the hit film “Little Darlings”, which also starred Tatum O’Neal and Matt Dillon. She then appeared in “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia” and “Only When I Laugh”, for which she was nominated for a Golden Globe Award.
McNichol’s Latter Career
After working on the “The Pirate Movie”, she was nominated for a Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Actress, and her troubles continued as she had an emotional break down while filming the project “Just the Way You Are”, leading to the film being interrupted for a year. Later on, she mentioned that the breakdown was due to the pressures of her career, and of trying to hide her sexuality from the public. After her return, she continued to take on roles in “You Can’t Hurry Love”, and “Empty Nest”, which was her final on-screen performance. Her last few projects were voice over roles, in series such as “Extreme Ghostbusters”.
In 2001, she decided to retire from acting, and made an announcement through her publicist, stating that she wanted to retire after 24 years. She realized that she has never really looked into her life away from acting, and wanted to be happier. After her retirement, she began teaching at a private school in Los Angeles, while also doing charity work. In 2012, she officially announced that she was lesbian, and had been with her partner for over two decades – her ‘coming out’ was to help younger people who are having trouble with their sexuality.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, it is known that Allen has been with Kristy since 1991. Several sources speculate that they married in a private ceremony, though others believe that they have never been officially married. However, the lack of information on this leads to a division with the truth still unknown. The couple have kept mostly a low profile, especially after Kristy decided to retire from acting.
Like Kevin McClatchy, actress Kristy McNichol (left) cited an impending 50th as inspiration for coming out, but she also…
One of the reasons why there is very limited information about her past and present endeavors is due to the lack of any presence online. Martie doesn’t have accounts on any of the major social media websites such as Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. The same can be said for her partner as the two decided to retain their privacy and keep out unwanted judgment from their relationship. There are other social media accounts that share the same name as hers, but is not related to her in any way. Kristy has been seen in public, mostly during charity events she has participated in.
