Floyd Mayweather Jnr Tops Forbes List Of Highest Paid Celebrities.
Forbes Magazine recently published their list of The World’s Highest-Paid Celebrities. The ranking includes public figures across disciplines. Some unexpected athletes, authors and all kinds of entertainers made the cut.
Unsurprisingly, however, the list is topped by Floyd Mayweather who racked in $285 million in the considered timeframe. Kylie Jenner comes in third, right below George Clooney, with $166.5 million. Ironically, a GoFundMe page has been created to help the reality television star bulk up her net worth. The page was created after Jenner graced Forbes’ cover. Christiano Ronaldo closes the list’s top 10 with $108 million. Ed Sheeran squeezed past him at #9 with $110 million.
Fourteen women made the list this year, out of 98 named celebrities. Katy Perry and Taylor Swift surpass the musical acts of this group, with earnings amounting to $83 million and $80 million respectively. Beyonce comes in 35th thanks to her racking up $60 million. This segment also includes Rihanna, coming in 84th with $37.5 million no doubt thanks to Fenty beauty since she hasn’t been rocking the music scene that much lately.
Repping the rap industry are Jay-Z (#25, $76.5 million), Kendrick Lamar (#37, $58 million), Sean “Diddy” Combs (#32, $64 million), and Drake (#53, $47 million). Dr. Dre and Nas tie for the last place with $35 million each. Kanye doesn’t join his wife on the list this time around.
