Kylie Jenner and Justin Bieber Are Amongst the 10 Youngest & Richest Celebrities

Musicians and athletes dominate the ranking.

According to Forbes‘s 100 overall highest paid celebrities list, Kylie Jenner is currently the youngest highest paid celeb at age 19 — she earned $41 million USD just within the past year. Justin Bieber and professional golfer Jordan Spieth both at age 23 (four years older than Jenner) earned $83.5 million USD and $34.5 million USD, respectively. Jenner’s income comes largely from her popular Kylie Cosmetics brand. Her much-coveted Lip Kits are always selling out. Also, a recent deal with Puma has contributed to her fast-growing wealth.

An interesting takeaway from the list is The Weeknd earning $92 million USD — he’s the richest amongst the top 10 youngest at 27 years old. There’s also Chance the Rapper, age 24, earning $33 million USD despite never selling one physical album. His riches come from tours, merch, sponsorships (Apple & Kit Kat), and being the headlining act at festivals. Athletes also dominate the ranking.
