Make way for the world’s latest Billionaire, Barbadian singer, actress, fashion designer, and businesswoman Robyn Rihanna Fenty aka Rihanna!
WORK! She doesn’t just talk the mantra, the Barbados beauty LIVES IT. According to Forbes, the 33 year old dominates with a super impressive net worth of $1.7 billion and no she doesn’t hit the coveted billion dollar mark from performing, but it’s all thanks to her beauty line Fenty which sought to create a cosmetics company that made “women everywhere (feel) included.”
Rihanna with her $1.7 billion, estimated net worth grabs title wealthiest female musician in the world and is second only to Oprah Winfrey as the richest female entertainer.
The bulk of her fortune (an estimated $1.4 billion) comes from the value of Fenty Beauty, of which Forbes confirms she owns 50%. Much of the rest lies in her stake in her lingerie company, Savage x Fenty, worth an estimated $270 million, and her earnings from her career as a chart-topping musician and actress.
“The majority of her 1.7 billion USD estimated net worth is not from singing but from cosmetics,” Forbes editor Kerry Dolan was quoted as saying.
“From a super-successful cosmetics line which, when it was launched, drew lots of praise because there were something, like, more than 40 shades for all range of skin tones, which was something that at the time, not very many cosmetics lines had been that inclusive,” he added.
