Diamond and Silk's net worth explored

Diamond, whose real name was Lynette Hardaway, was one part of the famed conservative sister duo. They rose to prominence in 2016 as African-American hailers of Donald Trump during his presidential election.

As per the Fayetteville Observer, the two were born to pastor Betty Willis Hardaway and Freeman and were among their five kids.

The sister duo were long-time Democrats and switched their allegiance to Donald Trump to support his presidency. That ultimately caught the attention of the former president and his allies.

Donald Trump invited the sisters to his 2017 inauguration and campaigned with the duo. They were even invited to the Oval office. They were fired from Fox News in 2020 after they promoted conspiracy theories related to Covid-19 on air.

According to Popular Net Worth, the sister duo has a combined net worth of $5 million. The fortune has been garnered due to their immense popularity among Trump fans.

As per Huff Post, the conservative sister duo belonged to North Carolina. Their Instagram handle boasts several pictures and videos of them with Trump. For their staunchly conservative views, the duo bagged their own shows on Fox News and Newsmax TV. Their main source of income was via their podcast and YouTube channel.

According to Meaww, they have also made money via their fans' meetups since they would charge $50 for each ticket to see them and $150 to click photos.

As for Hardaway's health, in November 2022, the duo's Twitter handle asked their followers to pray for Hardaway's recovery but did not specify what she was suffering from. She returned to her show the following month and rubbished online speculations that she was in the hospital because of coronavirus and dubbed it "fake news."
