How Did Deestroying Become Rich?
Donald de La Haye jr, better known by his internet persona Deestroying, was born December 2nd, 1996. He is currently twenty-four years old. He was born in Costa Rica. His parents are Sheron De La Haye and Donald De La Haye Sr.
Deestroying stayed with his family for a few years in Costa Rica, after which his family decided to move. They moved to Port St Lucie, Florida when he was seven years old.

He majored in Marketing and was a part of his university’s football team during his time there. He played as Kickoff Specialist. Soon after, Deestroying was kicked off the team over a legal dispute. He was told he could not profit off of his name, likeness or athletic ability other than his scholarship with the NCAA.
At the time, Destroyer had a YouTube channel that was growing where he would show off his athletic skills in hopes to be signed professionally in the future. It started as a small channel and over time grew a following large enough that Deestroying was able to make money from it. This however went against the NCAA rules. He was ultimately told to demonetize or delete his YouTube channel altogether or risk losing his scholarship along with his NCAA eligibility. Deestroying chose the latter and remained making videos. He was then kicked off of the team and lost his scholarship but did not let go without a fight. He sued the NCAA for taking away his scholarship just for using his own name. He was up against the odds but somehow managed to get the rights in 2018 to finish school at the university. There is now legislation set in Florida to help allow student-athletes to profit off their names. While his case could not have pushed the legislative move alone it definitely helped in shining a spotlight on a situation that happens to many young athletes.
