Kylie Jenner and Kanye West topped Forbes’ annual list of the highest-paid celebs, but sports stars including Roger Federer and Lionel Messi dominated the top ten.
Forbes estimated that American reality TV star Jenner had earned $ 590 million in the past twelve months, mostly from selling a 51 percent stake in Kylie Cosmetics cosmetics line to Koti in 2019.
Jenner, 22, who is half-sister to Kim Kardashian, made the headlines a week ago when Forbes said that after reviewing the Coty deal’s data, she no longer believed she was a billionaire as she announced a year ago.
Jenner responded that the original Forbes estimate was based on “a number of inaccurate data and unproven assumptions.
West, Kardashian’s husband, came second with about $ 170 million, mostly from his deal with Adidas about his brand of sneaker Lisi.
West is also the most profitable musician, followed by Elton John who collected most of his $ 81 million profit from a long lyrical farewell tour.
Forbes said the 100 highest-paid figures combined had earned $ 6.1 billion before calculating taxes and fees, down nearly $ 200 million from 2019, after the Corona virus pandemic closed sports fields and arenas.
Swiss tennis champion Federer came in third with around $ 106.3 million, mostly from deals with companies like Japanese clothing company Uniklo and Swiss watchmaker Rolex. Football stars Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi were ranked fourth and fifth, respectively.
