KYLIE JENNER may not be a billionaire yet, but she’s still well on her way. And now, she’s #1 on the “Forbes” Celebrity 100 list of the highest-paid entertainers, after making $590 million over the past year.
“Forbes” just released this year’s list yesterday. Here’s the Top 10 . . .
1. “Self-made” NON-billionaire Kylie Jenner, $590 million
2. Kanye West, $170 million
3. Tennis stud Roger Federer, $106.3 million
4. Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, $105 million
5. Soccer star Lionel Messi, $104 million
6. Tyler Perry, $97 million
7. Soccer star Neymar, $95.5 million
8. Howard Stern, $90 million
9. LeBron James, $88.2 million
10. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, $87.5 million
ANGELINA JOLIE came in 99th, with a mere $35.5 million. Underachiever. (???) She did just beat out #100, Egyptian soccer player MOHAMED SALAH, who made $35.1 million.
Angelina is just one of two actresses to make the list. The other is Sofia Vergara, who is #71 with $43 million. But she earned half of her take from endorsements and licensing. So that’s $78.5 million for these two women.
But there are NINE male actors on the list, and their combined earnings are MUCH higher . . . $545.5 million. A lot of the other ladies on the list, like J-Lo, Ariana Grande, and Lady Gaga, have dabbled in acting but primarily have singing careers.
By the way, “Forbes” pointed out that the world’s highest-paid celebrities earned a combined $6.1 billion before taxes and fees, which is a $200 million drop from 2019.
And some of that DOES have to do with the COVID-19 pandemic, because the numbers are current. They include pre-tax earnings from June of last year through last month . . . before deducting fees for managers, lawyers, and agents.
