Rihanna, Jay-Z & Kim Kardashian Lead The Stars On Forbes’ Billionaire List
Rihanna, Jay Z and Kim Kardashian are among the world’s billionaires – but Kayne West has dropped off after Adidas ended their partnership.
Umbrella hitmaker Rihanna has amassed a huge net worth after venturing into lingerie and beauty with her brand Fenty.
The singer, 35, helped her French business partner Bernard Arnault, the chairman of French luxury goods giant LVMH, overthrow Elon Musk to become the richest person in the world after his net worth grew more than $50billion to $211billion.
In the Forbes list published on Tuesday, Rihanna placed at number 2002 with $1.4billion – down from $1.7billion last year.
Titanic director Steven Spielberg, 76, meanwhile, placed at 694 with $4billion after the release of the Avatar sequel last year.
Kim, 42, is 2,259th on the list but her wealth is down from $1.9billion last year to $1.2billion.
She has seen huge success with her Skims shapewear clothing line, with the company worth an estimated $3.2billion.
Kim’s ex-husband Kanye hasn’t made the list after Adidas cut ties with him over his anti-Semitic comments he made on social media.
In 2022 the rapper was ranked number 1,513 on Forbes’ rich list and had a multi-year deal with the sports company for his brand Yeezy.
But the father-of-four’s wealth has plummeted below $1billion after the termination with the brand, which came after several other lucrative deals were dropped.
Kylie Jenner, 25, is another who is not on the list. She was previously declared the ‘youngest self-made millionaire’ by Forbes back in 2020, thanks to her beauty range.
She was booted off the list in 2021 and hasn’t yet managed to make it back on.
Other stars on the list are Jay-Z and Oprah Winfrey.
Jay-Z’s wealth has gone up to $2.5billion from $1.4billion and is placed at 1217 on the list.
