Kylie Jenner Not Billionaire But Highest Paid Celebrity – Forbes
Reality TV star Kylie Jenner and rapper Kanye West on Thursday topped the annual Forbes list of the highest-paid celebrities, but sports stars, including Roger Federer and Lionel Messi, dominated the top 10.
Forbes estimated that Jenner earned US$590 million (S$822 million) in the last 12 months, mostly from the sale of a 51 per cent shold in her Kylie Cosmetics line to Coty in 2019.
Jenner, 22, the half-sister of media personality Kim Kardashian, made headlines a week ago when Forbes assumed that after reviewing data from the Coty sale, it no longer believed she was a billionaire as it had declared a year ago.
Jenner responded by saying that the original Forbes estimate was based on "a number of inaccurate statements and unproven assumptions."
West, who is married to Kardashian, followed with an estimated US$170 million in earnings, much of it from his deal with Adidas for his Yeezy sneaker brand.
West was also the top-earning musician, followed by English singer Elton John who raked in most of his estimated US$81 million from a lengthy farewell tour.
Forbes assumed the Celebrity Top 100 earned a combined US$6.1 billion before taxes and fees, a US$200 million drop from 2019, after the coronavirus pandemic shuttered stadiums and sports arenas.
Tennis champion Federer took third place with an estimated US$106.3 million, mostly from endorsement deals with the likes of Japanese clothing company Uniqlo and watch maker Rolex. He was followed by soccer stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi.
