Raiders owner Mark Davis was in attendance to watch his team beat the Ravens in Week 1 of the new NFL season. But who is he? Mark Davis’ net worth, girlfriend status, and interesting haircut explored.
Who is Mark Davis?
Mark Davis, born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1955 is an American businessman.
Davis is the principal owner and managing general partner of NFL franchise the Las Vegas Raiders.
Davis inherited the team after the death of his father, Al Davis, in 2011.
Along with his mother, Carol Davis, he owns a 47% share in the franchise.
What is the Raiders owner’s net worth?
Mark Davis isn’t short of a dollar or two.
Just this week, TMZ reported the Raiders owner rocked up to Virgin Hotels in Las Vegas to test his luck ahead of the new season.
He pulled up to the Wheel Of Fortune slots and, with one pull, became $1,800 richer.
That may not seem a lot, but slot machines have some of the worst odds out there.
According to Investopedia, they can range from a one in 5,000 to one in 34 million chance of winning the top prize.
Not that $1,800 will make much difference to Mark Davis’ life.
The Raiders owner’s net worth is estimated at $500 million.
Does Mark Davis have a wife or girlfriend?
The Raiders owner keeps his personal life pretty private.
However, he has never been married nor been seen with a girlfriend or partner during a Raiders game.
Some have speculated Mark Davis might be gay but this appears to be false.
Mark Davis’ haircut is just as famous as him
Mark Davis’ haircut is every bit as famous as him.
His haircut is unconventional to say the least. During the Raiders’ Week 1 win against the Ravens recently, Davis could be seen in the stands.
Most of the focus was on his haircut.
ESPN has provided some interesting context on Davis’ haircut in the past.
They write Davis specifically travels to Palm Desert to get it cut, and he’s only had three barbers in his life.
“If he likes something, he stays loyal,” one source told ESPN.
They continue: “He’s aware of the public fascination with his hair. Damn straight he is.”
Raiders president Marc Badain told ESPN when news stories relating to the team are emailed to him, Davis has been known to respond by writing: “The comments on this one are all about my hair.”
When asked whether anyone ever suggested an alternative, former Raiders receiver and close friend Cliff Branch told ESPN: “Every day. That’s the number one topic.”
Asked about Davis’ response, Branch replied: “He ain’t changing it. When people say something, he just laughs.
“The more they tell him, the more he’s going to keep it. If they back off and don’t say anything, he might change it.”
