Adam DeVine is a versatile American entertainer who is well known as a voice actor, actor, comedian and singer among other things. He became very popular for his role in Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2. Just as he has starred in many successful films, Adam has equally lent his voice in many great productions such as The Lego Batman Movie and Ice Age: Collision Course.
The actor who was born Adam Patrick DeVine on November 7, 1983, in Waterloo, Iowa, was raised alongside his sister, Brittani DeVine, by their parents, Penny and Dennis DeVine. While growing up in a rather humble background, one of the things that would come to define his life and push him into comedy and acting was an accident he had when he was still a young boy. Having survived the crash that nearly took his life, Adam got bullied in school as a result of the injuries he sustained from the crash. This was what drove him to tell jokes as a way to deflect whatever was thrown at him. Little did he know he was paving his way to stardom in the show business.
How Did Adam DeVine Become Popular?
Not even Devine imagined acting as an alternative choice of career after his desire to become a professional baseball player was dashed by the tragic accident he had at the young of 11. Devine was confined to a wheelchair for 2 years after undergoing 25 surgeries. Two decades after, this actor can look back at the accident and perhaps smile to himself.
DeVine attended the Millard South High School and from there, he proceeded to the Orange Coast College, and once he was through, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career as an actor. He began his career officially in 2006 when he made an appearance and also joined in the creation of Crossbows & Mustaches and then, there was Nick Cannon Presents: Short Circuitz in 2007.
He would go on to appear in other TV series such as 5th Year (2008), and Workaholics which he co-created and which has come to make him more famous. It is a matter of fact that the popularity of the Comedy Central sitcom Workaholic helped to build Adam DeVine’s fame in the entertainment industry and earned him more strategic roles in more highly rated films and television series.
Devine received a role as Andy in Modern Family, an American mockumentary family series created by Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan. He also appeared in Pitch Perfect 1&2, Mama’s Boy, When We First Met. Since 2019, he has maintained the role of Kelvin Gemstone in the comedy series The Righteous Gemstones, which also has Danny McBride and John Goodman, among the key actors. As a voice actor, he played in Tron: Uprising, Sanjay and Craig, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Don vs. Raph.
This is How Much the Actor is Worth
A very hard working individual who has appeared in many productions as an actor and voice actor as well as his successes as a producer and comedian, there is hardly any doubt that the actor is making good money. In that regard, he is estimated to have a fortune of over $8 million.
Through his career as an actor, a creator, and a comedian which can be described mostly as very successful, Adam DeVine has got a good number of nominations from which he took away some awards including the CinemaCon Award for Comedy Star of the Year in 2016, MTV Movie Award for Best Kiss in 2015, and Teen Choice Award for Choice Movie Villain for his role in Pitch Perfect (2012).
Adam DeVine’s Family – Who is His Wife or Girlfriend?
As earlier noted, Adam DeVine came from a rather small family made up of his parents and sister, Brittani Devine, who is not an actress but has appeared as a crew member in Workaholics as well as Adam Devine’s House Party.
Relationship wise, Adam does not have a wife as he has never been married. Also, there are people who have asked if DeVine is gay. The answer is no, he is not. There has never been anything to suggest that he has ever had any relationship with a man. Instead, he has dated a few women in the past.
The first woman who became his girlfriend was American singer and actress, Kelley Jakle. The two began dating in 2012, but by 2014, they had already gone their separate ways.
After the relationship ended, Adam went on to date another actress, Chloe Bridges in early 2015. They met when they were filming The Final Girls. Since then, the two have remained very close with many believing that Chloe may as well end up becoming the actor’s wife as this is the longest relationship that either of them has been in. In fact, according to the star in 2017, Chloe Bridges was expecting him to pop the question when they went for a romantic trip to Europe. Unfortunately, he didn’t get the clue and didn’t give the whole thing a thought. But in October 2019, the actor eventually popped the question and the Pretty Little Liars actress Chloe Bridges said yes.
