Kylie Jenner tops Forbes’ 2020 list of highest-paid celebrities in the world


Kylie Jenner, led by her brother-in-law, rapper Kanye West, topped Forbes’ list of the world’s highest-paid celebrities for the year 2020.

According to Forbes, The Make-up mogul, 23, received $590 million following the huge earnings from the sale to Coty of 51 percent of her Kylie Cosmetics collection.

Owing to his Yeezy apparel and sneaker contract with Adidas, her brother-in-law, rapper Kanye West, raked in $170 million in large part.

The list reveals that the highest-paid celebrities in the world received a combined $6.1 billion before taxes and fees, a decrease from 2019 of $200 million.

The majority of the top 10 on the Forbes list was primarily made up of athletes, with five of the eight earning their money from sports wages.

Tennis legend, with $106.3 million in sales, Roger Federer takes the third overall spot, mainly from sponsorship deals, including a $300 million 10-year contract with Japanese clothing brand Uniqlo.

Cristiano Ronaldo, the celebrity footballer, took fourth place with $105 million, much of which comes from his $64 million Juventus annual salary.

With $104 million, his arch-rival, Lionel Messi, came in fifth, winning Barcelona $80 million a year along with other sponsorship deals.

Filmmaker, with $97 million, Tyler Perry was sixth on the list, with much of his earnings coming from his “Madea” film franchise. Last year, he also opened the 330-acre Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta and signed an agreement with Viacom to own 25% of the BET+ streaming service.
