Ryan Kavanaugh was bornon 4 December 1974 in United States. Movie mogul Ryan Kavanaugh fell from Forbes' billionaires rankings on July 30, 2015 when his company Relativity filed for bankruptcy. His Moneyball-for-movies strategy, in which he bet on singles and doubles rather than box office home runs, proved riskier than previously thought. While it had some successes, such as the critically acclaimed 2010 film 'The Fighter,' lately it has been striking out: none of his films reached even a modest $70 million at the global box office during a stretch that started at the beginning of 2014 and ended in a Chapter 11 filing. Kavanaugh's other investments in biotech, real estate, video games and dog food aren't enough to keep him in ten-figure territory.
