A millennial university dropout has become one of Australia's richest online stars after making millions from posting clips of himself playing video games on YouTube.

Brisbane-based Lachlan Power, 25, makes at least $2.4million a year, lives in a $4.4million apartment with a riverfront view and drives a $200,000 Tesla X SUV.

He has also recently dated international lingerie model Morgan Krizmanich.

Australia's sixth biggest YouTuber has 14.6million subscribers and lucrative deals with massive companies like Samsung and Disney.

The son of Logan mayor Darren Power had a humble upbringing in the south side of Brisbane in Shailer Park with his councilor father, bank manager mum Lynne and three siblings, reported the Courier Mail.

The UK will increase corporate tax to 25% by 2023, Chancellor and Finance Minister Rishi Sunak announced on Wednesday (March 3rd). The goal: to finance part of the huge public deficit caused by economic support measures in the face of the health crisis. This corporate tax increase will not affect small businesses, which will continue to be taxed at 19%.

Power reportedly started YouTubing as a hobby in 2014 but when video game Fortnite surged in popularity a few years later, his channel exploded and he was launched into a life of unfathomable fame and wealth.

The entrepreneur started a self-titled clothing line, Power by Lachlan, and hawks various products through lucrative endorsement deals with companies like Emirates and The Pokémon Company in his videos and social media channels.

The Youtuber's whole level Kangaroo Point riverside apartment was bought for $4.4million in July last year by a Power family trust and includes a private lift and stunning waterfront views.

The millionaire drives a Tesla SUV worth $200,000 with the customised number plates 'BANTER' and owns a designer dog, a Groodle called Otto.

Power dated international lingerie model Morgan Krizmanich until August last year when she had to return to Canada, and even has a trademarked lightening bolt.

Photos of the pair shared on Instagram in late 2019 and early 2020 showed the pair enjoying the sunset at Sydney's Bondi Beach and posing together at bars and restaurants.
