Former world’s youngest billionaire entrepreneur Kylie Jenner topped Forbes magazine’s list of the highest-paid celebrities of 2020. The rating is published on the website of the publication.
According to journalists’ calculations, 23-year-old Jenner managed to earn $ 590 million in a year. The list leader reportedly earned the most revenue after selling half of its brand, Kylie Cosmetics, to cosmetic giant Coty for $ 600 million and generating approximately $ 340 million after sales tax.
The second line of the rating was taken by the husband of her older sister Kim Kardashian, rapper Kanye West, who increased his capital from 150 to 170 million dollars in a year. The magazine placed tennis player Roger Federer with $ 106 million in third place, and Cristiano Ronaldo, who earned $ 105 million, in fourth position.
The top five was closed by the player of the Spanish club Barcelona, Lionel Messi: the athlete’s capital decreased by $ 23 million compared to the same rating in 2019.
In total, the list includes 100 celebrities. The top ten highest paid stars also include actor Tyler Perry ($ 97 million), footballer Neymar ($ 95 million), host Howard Stern, as well as basketball player LeBron James ($ 88 million) and actor Dwayne Johnson ($ 87 million).
