Billionaire or not, Kylie Jenner is the highest-paid celeb

Reality star Kylie Jenner has topped Forbes’ annual list of highest-paid celebrities.

The 22-year-old make-up mogul is reported to have made as much as $590 million over the past year, putting her way out in front of second-placed Kanye West ($170 million) on the list.

Kylie’s eye-watering earnings came after she sold a 51 percent stake in Kylie Cosmetics to the beauty giant Coty.

Finance magazine Forbes which made its calculations using pre-tax earnings between June 2019 and May 2020 has reiterated its recent claim that Kylie is not a billionaire.

Elsewhere, tennis champion Roger Federer ($106.3 million), and soccer stars Cristiano Ronaldo ($105 million) and Lionel Messi ($104 million) hold third, fourth and fifth places on the list respectively.

The top ten is rounded out by Tyler Perry ($97 million), Neymar ($95.5 million), Howard Stern ($90 million), LeBron James ($88.2 million) and Dwayne Johnson ($87.5 million).

Kylie recently became involved in a high-profile dispute with Forbes, after the magazine insisted she wasn’t a billionaire.

The publication accused the make-up mogul of spinning a “web of lies” about her business, including her Kylie Cosmetics brand.

But Kylie’s lawyer, Michael Kump, hit back at Forbes, insisting its article contained “outright lies” about the star and demanding the company retract its comments.

Prior to that, Kylie took to social media to slam the publication for making “unproven assumptions”.
