Having such a massive net worth and earnings, he is not the kind to just stack those cash in the bank. On 7th March 2018, the actor decided to pay for a fan named Sophia's retainers after her orthodontist shared that she had snapped the wire on her retainers while she watched Jordan take his shirt off in Black Panther. According to the doctor, she clenched her teeth so hard that she snapped them. 

In a tweet, the actor shared that he felt he was responsible for the breaking. So, he openly offered to replace them. MBJ is a good man indeed. 

Moving on from his good deeds, the actor is also reported to earn thousands of dollars through endorsement deals and sponsorships.
