Who is Madison Louch?
Madison Louch was born on 25 April 1995, in Johannesburg, South Africa, and is a model as well as a social media personality, best known for earning fame through Instagram on which she has amassed over 400,000 followers in a short period of time. Since then, she’s expanded her reach to other online networks, and her online fame has gained her numerous modelling opportunities
How rich is Madison Louch? As of early-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $1 million, earned largely through a successful career in modelling. She’s also earned income from her popularity online, which has led to more sponsorships and opportunities. As she continues her career, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Madison grew up in Johannesburg, and was exposed to the modelling industry at a young age thanks to her mother who worked in the industry, and is known for collaborating with the energy drink company, Monster Energy numerous times. Madison also met numerous celebrities, though she didn’t really think of pursuing a career yet, as she still had school to finish.
Very little detail is available about her education or her family, but it is known that her parents supported her pursuit of a modelling career. She began by posting photos and videos of herself on Instagram, while her mother also handled her modelling endeavors. She started by gaining contracts with popular brands including the sports company Puma. She also posted photos with popular DJs such as Skrillex and Steve Aoki, which continued to build her popularity.
Social Media and Music Career
Louch’s Instagram account would quickly gain over 400,000 followers, and her fame was initially attributed to her attractive qualities which are very popular on the website. She posted a lot of photos of her daily endeavors, including various photo shoots she had been doing, including working a lot with Puma in modelling for the company, wearing numerous sportswear outfits promoting clothing lines for tennis, soccer, boxing, and many more under Puma Women. Other popular social media personalities who modelled for Puma Women include Pau Dictado, Ruslana Gee, and Kim Jayde Robinson, so Madison is in good company.
Aside from her Instagram account, she also has a Twitter account on which she posts some of her daily thoughts, but not as often as on Instagram, though she keeps both of her accounts active to promote her second career in music. Louch is known for later transitioning to a career as a DJ, and has released numerous singles through the music sharing app Sound Cloud. Her online fame coupled with her musical endeavors has led her to play in gigs around the world – while she grew up in South Africa, she later moved to the United States, settling in Los Angeles, California to make the most out of her opportunities.
In 2014, Madison discovered that her access to her iCloud account was suddenly blocked, and a hacker started contacting her holding her private photos for ransom at a value of $900; if she did not comply, her nude photos would be leaked. In response to the threat, she contacted the police as the hacker bragged about hacking celebrity accounts and leaking photos. The hacker gave her instructions to drop the money in Hollywood where the police set up a sting operation, and a woman named Jamie Munoz was arrested, and later confessed that she was asked by the hacker to pick up the money.
According to Munoz, the hacker’s name was Nicholas Douglas from Vancouver, Canada but the police have not been able to find him. She later pleaded guilty to extortion, and received a sentence of three years probation and community service. Madison became one of the latest victims of iCloud hackers taking advantage of a flaw in the iCloud system to gain private photos of popular names – photos of celebrities such as Kate Upton and Jennifer Lawrence have been released publicly in the past. According to statistics, over 100 celebrities have become victims of these attacks, but police have yet to find the person responsible.
