With barely less than a week to Christmas, Forbes has released America’s richest celebrities list, which includes filmmakers, athletes, musician-moguls, an author, a magician and a reality star/cosmetics magnate (we have a feeling you know the one).
In this list, Star Wars takes the lead as its creator George Lucas tops with $5.4 billion (N1,971,000,000,000).
Second in line is filmmaker, Steven Spielberg ($3.7 billion- N1,350,500,000,000) and media mogul Oprah ($2.8 billion- N1,022,000,000,000) coming in third place.
Basketball legend Michael Jordan boosted his net worth by an estimated $400 million in the past year, mostly off his 34-year-long sneaker deal with Nike Inc and his stake in the Charlotte Hornets. His estimated $1.7 billion net worth ranked him fourth.
In the list, it is clear that America’s wealthiest celebrities have a combined wealth of the $18.7 (N6,825,500,000,000) billion.
Here’s the ten most-rich and famous people, based on Forbes’ methodology that factors in net worth earnings, private company stakes, publicly traded assets, art and real estate assets.
