Rihanna makes debut on Forbes’ Billionaires List

April 6th, 2022

Barbadian National Heroine and international superstar, The Right Excellent Robyn Rihanna Fenty has made her debut on the Forbes Billionaire List.

The 34 year old has been valued by Forbes at US $1.7 billion, and ranks at #1,729 on the list, surpassing stars like Jay-Z (#2,076 with US $1.4 billion) and Tyler Perry (#2,578 with US $1 billion).

Although she first entered the spotlight with her music career, says it was her cosmetics brand Fenty Beauty (co-owned with luxury brand LVMH) that earned her a spot on the list. She owns 50% of the makeup line, and also 30% of the Savage X Fenty lingerie line.

The mother-to-be officially reached billionaire status last August, but missed out on making the Forbes 2021 list.

Forbes says the world now has 2,668 billionaires, with a collective net worth of $12.7 trillion.

Tech mogul Elon Musk tops the list with an estimated net worth of $219 billion, with Amazon founder Jeff Bezos in 2nd with $171 billion.
