Kylie Jenner tops Forbes highest paid celebrity list.
According to Forbes, the top earning celebrities were Kylie Jenner and Kanye West, who brought in $590 million and $170 million, respectively. West collected most of his earnings from his Yeezy sneakers deal with Adidas, while Jenner’s payday came from selling a 51% stake in her cosmetics firm to Coty in January. While she had exaggerated over the years about the size of her business, the money she pulled in from the deal was real--enough to rank as one of the biggest celebrity cashouts of all time.
In sports, Roger Federer (No. 3, $106.3 million) is the first tennis player to earn the top spot among athletes on the list, while soccer’s Cristiano Ronaldo (No. 4, $105 million) became the first team player to earn $1 billion during his career. At number 5 is Lionel Messi with $104, Tyler Perry at number 6 with $97 Million. Neymar comes in next at number 7 with $95.5 Million, Howard Stern at number 8 with $90 Million. Lebron with $88.2 Million and Dwayne Johnson at number 10 with $87.5 Million.
