"Forbes" Released Its List of the 100 Highest-Paid Celebrities


"Forbes" just released this year's list yesterday. Here's the Top 10. . .

1. "Self-made" NON-billionaire Kylie Jenner, $590 million

2. Kanye West, $170 million

3. Tennis stud Roger Federer, $106.3 million

4. Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, $105 million

5. Soccer star Lionel Messi, $104 million

6. Tyler Perry, $97 million

7. Soccer star Neymar, $95.5 million

8. Howard Stern, $90 million

9. LeBron James, $88.2 million

10. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, $87.5 million

ANGELINA JOLIE came in 99th, with a mere $35.5 million. Underachiever. (???) She did just beat out #100, Egyptian soccer playerMOHAMED SALAH, who made $35.1 million.

Angelina is just one of two actresses to make the list. The other isSofia Vergara, who is #71 with $43 million. But she earned half of her take from endorsements and licensing. So that's $78.5 million for these two women.  

But there are NINE male actors on the list, and their combined earnings are MUCH higher . . . $545.5 million. A lot of the other ladies on the list, likeJ-Lo,Ariana Grande, andLady Gaga, have dabbled in acting but primarily have singing careers.

By the way,"Forbes"pointed out that the world's highest-paid celebrities earned a combined $6.1 billion before taxes and fees, which is a $200 million drop from 2019.

And some of that DOES have to do with the COVID-19 pandemic, because the numbers are current. They include pre-tax earnings from June of last year through last month . . . before deducting fees for managers, lawyers, and agents.
