Nicole Covone Net Worth $700,000

What is Nicole Covone’s net worth?

Nicole Covone has a net worth of $700,000. She is probably only famous for one thing: she used to be married to rapper Lil Durk.

Lil Durk rose to fame off the back of his feature on Laugh Now Cry Later—a hit single for Drake that received a handful of Grammy nominations in 2020.

Durk is also the founder of the Chicago rap collective, Only The Family.

If you know Lil Durk, then you probably know all about his baby mama dramas across social media.

Nicole Covone is the first of Lil Durk’s baby mamas and his ex-wife.

Here’s what we know about a girl who is famous for who she dated and who she married—and maybe also why they divorced.

The Origin Story

Nicole Covone was born in Chicago, Illinois, on April 25, 1990.

She and Lil Durk—whose real name is Derrick Banks—started dating after they met at Paul Robeson High School.

Covone moved in with Durk pretty quickly, and the pair welcomed their first baby on November 28, 2011.

Their son Angelo’s birth—and their low-key summer wedding that year—weren’t the only big changes that year.

Nicole’s boyfriend had left high school by this point, and joined local Chicago street gang, the Black Disciples.

In October of 2011, he was arrested on gun charges—specifically for possession of a firearm with a defaced serial number.

He went to prison, leaving Nicole as a solo mom.

After his release from prison, Derrick and his wife got to work on making baby number 2.

On July 18, 2013, Covone gave birth to the couple’s second child—a daughter named Bella Banks.

A Bad Year

2013 was a blessing for Nicole, when she welcomed her little girl to the world. But, sadly, things weren’t looking so good on the family or relationship fronts.

In the lead up to Bella’s birth—as in: she was ready to pop—Durk landed himself in jail for possession of a loaded .40 caliber firearm.

When he was pulled over by police, the wannabe gang banger tried to get rid of the gun by throwing it into a nearby car.

Covone said to the media at the time that she was meant to give birth that day but didn’t want to go into labor with her husband behind bars.

Just months after her daughter’s birth—which Durk was incarcerated for—Lil Durk welcomed another child to the world.

His new son’s name was Zayden Banks, and no—he was not Nicole’s miracle child.

While Zayden’s mom didn’t go public on social media, Lil Durk didn’t deny that he had stepped outside his marriage and made a baby with someone else.

Nicole filed for divorce, and both she and Banks moved on.

Nicole’s kids, Angelo and Bella, are now the eldest half-siblings of six—Zayden and D’Umier to an unknown baby mama of Banks, Skyler Banks, the daughter of Tameka Kute, and Willow Banks, the daughter of Banks and his new wife, India Royale.

To cap off a truly heart-breaking year, Nicole lost her mom—Diana Covone—in October of 2013.

The Drama Continues

While Covone’s ex seems to do a good job as a parent most of the time, he’s been known to slip up when it comes to social media.

For example, his cringe-worthy post in 2016 where he said he wanted to take his kids away from all their mothers and raise them himself.

While fans thought the post was weird, to say the least, Covone had much more to say on the matter.

Covone acknowledged that Banks was a “great father” but added that she doesn’t know what was going on with him.

She also said he “wants some attention” and pointed out that he must be talking to his other baby mamas because he knows “it ain’t flying this way.”
