The 14 richest celebrity billionaires are worth a collective $31 billion USD, starting off with Swift’s $1.1 billion USD net worth at No. 14. The singer made $190 million USD post-tax from “The Eras Tour,” making her the first person to enter the billionaire’s club via songwriting and performing alone. There’s also James at No. 11 with $1.2 billion USD, which he made from playing in the NBA, real estate investments, business stakes, his production company SpringHill and stakes in companies that own sports teams. At No. 9 is Rihanna, who made her $1.4 billion USD fortune from her two billion-dollar brands Fenty Beauty and Savage X Fenty, while Kim Kardashian is at No. 6 with her $1.7 billion USD fortune from SKIMS and the 20% sale of then-KKW Beauty to Coty in 2020.

In the top five are the likes of JAY-Z, who earned his $2.5 billion USD fortune from the $300 million USD sale of a 50% stake of Armand de Brignac to LVMH, the sale of a $750 million USD majority stake in D’Usse to Bacardi and his stakes in Uber and Block. There’s also Michael Jordan, the first billionaire athlete, with the $3.2 billion USD he made mostly from his $1.8 billion USD brand partnerships (which includes Jordan brand) and the $3 billion USD of the Charlotte Hornets in 2023. Finally, at No. 1 is Star Wars creator George Lucas, who made his $5.5 billion USD fortune from LucasFilm and its sale to Disney for over $4 billion USD.
