A woman in power

The empire of the clan Kardashian-Jenner is solid. The money flows. If Kim Kardashian-West does not have to be ashamed of its $ 49.5 million (48th rank), it is not possible to compare its financial success to the mirobolante sum of $ 540 million (ranked first) which now belongs to her sister, Kylie Jenner. The star of reality tv and Instagram has wisely sold 51 % of his shares of the company Kyle Cosmetics in January 2019, thus ensuring himself a nice little nest-egg, and the first step in the prestigious ranking “Forbes”.

The star of the rap

Jay-Z (53.5 million, 42nd overall) has often been that that rappers have wanted to dethrone him at the time of peak sales and earnings. However, when one speaks of big money, many have done better than him in the last 12 months.

Master of his own talk show and a game called “thus, ellen s Game of Games”, the comedy star, who has pocketed $ 84 million (rank 12th) has done really well to focus its efforts in front of the camera and not on stage.

The novelist’s number one

The prolific author connects the books for nearly 30 years, making each release an event. Its revenues of $ 80 million give him the 15th spot of the charts, he has sold nearly five million copies in the last 12 months. Even J. K.

The future looks bright!

The surprise

Mistakenly, we believed lost in a distant musical past. Yet, the Backstreet Boys proved that they still knew how to rally the crowds, raking in $ 45 million (64th rank), thanks to the second tour the most lucrative of their careers. Not only have they done better than the very experienced and The Eagles ($41 million), Bon Jovi ($38 million) and U2 ($38 million), but they heated the young training of south Korean BTS ($50 million). A return to Brian, Nick, Kevin, A. J. and Howie!

Soon octogenarian
