Kylie Jenner Tops Forbes Highest-Paid Celebrities List Ahead Of Kanye West & Ronaldo

kyl

Kylie Jenner, US media personality and businesswoman, has topped Forbes magazine’s annual list of highest-paid celebrities for 2020.

According to the list, released on Thursday, the 22-year-old reality star achieved the feat with a total earning of $590 million, which came from selling a 51% stake ​in her cosmetics firm to Coty in January.

Kanye West, American rapper, came second on the chart with $170 million while Roger Federer, Swiss professional tennis player, occupied the third spot with $106.3 million.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus star, was fourth on the list with $105 million while Lionel Messi, Barcelona ace, completed the top five with $104 million.

The development comes amid recent feud between Jenner and the business magazine over her billionaire status.

In a recent article, Forbes had explained that it took away the media personality’s billionaire status after reviewing financial data released by Coty Inc, alleging inflation of figures.

Jenner, had however, taken a swipe at the US magazine, claiming its article was based “a number of inaccurate statements and unproven assumptions.”
