Who Is Zedd?
Zedd, the son of the teacher and guitarist Igor Zaslavski (father) and the pianist Marina Vladimirovna Zaslavskaya (mother), who gave birth to him in Saratov, Russia, on September 2, 1989, is the product of two great Russian musicians, Zedd, whose real name is Anton Zaslavski. The multi-instrumentalist, born with the zodiac sign of Virgo, has German citizenship and belongs to a mixed ethnic group (Russian and German).
Zedd and his family moved to Germany, exactly to the city of Kaiserslautern, when he was three years old. In this city, he grew up together with his older brothers Arkadi and his younger brother Daniel. As expected, the record producer started taking music lessons at a very young age. At the age of four, he was already a star at the piano but waited until the age of twelve before playing the drums. As a classically trained musician, Zedd has a deep knowledge of other instruments such as a keyboard, guitar, synthesizer, and drums. He took his musical talent to a new level in 2012 when he joined the popular German deathcore band Dioramic. Anton developed a strong interest in producing electronic music after listening to the French electronic duo Justice.
What Is Zedd’s Net Worth
Zedd is undoubtedly one of the richest Russian-German musicians, and Zedd’s years in show business have been very rewarding. For his hard work, passion, and commitment to a career he values so highly, he has not only built a strong fan base and popularity, but also an impressive net worth, estimated at $34 million. His daily, monthly, and annual income are not readily available at the moment, but it is crystal clear that he earns a huge amount of money by providing one or more services to his clients.
Who is Zedd’s Girlfriend
At the time of writing this article, the Russian-born star is flying solo and is currently in no relationship. Nevertheless, Zedd’s love life was overshadowed by his short-lived affair with the respected American producer/actress/singer Selena Marie Gomez (professionally known as Selena Gomez), which lasted only three months. The couple came into contact in January 2015 when they collaborated on Zedd’s music video and song track entitled: I Want You to Know.
After a successful outing, the two immediately started dating, which resulted in Zedd becoming more popular than he was before the collaboration. Although the celebrities did not deny or confirm that they were a couple at the time, their fling brought them greater public attention and media coverage.
Apart from Gomez, the DJ was also associated with actress Nina Dobrev, who also happens to be Selena’s friend. The two began becoming friends shortly after Zedd ended his relationship with the eighteen-time Teen Choice Award winner. Born on January 9, 1989, in Sofia, Bulgaria, Dobrev is best known for her role in the acclaimed drama series The Vampire’s Diaries. While many believed that Zedd and Selena faked their relationship just to sell their song, others believed that Zedd’s decision to hang out with Nina was lame at the time.
In 2016, rumors circulated that the Russian producer of electronic music was dating American social media personality and social media model Bryana Holly after she broke up with her longtime boyfriend and 5 Seconds of Summers drummer Ashton Irwin. Although the celebrities never confirmed their relationship status, it became obvious that they were more than just friends when Zedd was spotted during a trip to Bali in January 2016, planting a kiss on her head. It is not exactly known if the two went separate ways and when it actually happened, but it is obvious that Zedd has no woman by his side at the moment, as he has not been seen with a woman for many months.
