Forbes Release the names Of 2018’s richest celebrities
Forbes releases the full list of Forbe’s America’s Wealthiest Celebrities for 2018. If you make it big in the entertainment industry, you have a chance at making some serious coin. You’ll need to work hard along the way but as long as the effort is put in, results will show.
Forbes regularly tallies lists to show just how much money the biggest celebrities are making, usually including a mix of shocking and obvious names. Their 30 Under 30 list had people like Russ, 21 Savage, Lil Pump, Post Malone, and others and as they make their way up to the big kid club, folks like Jay-Z and Diddy are lavishly enjoying their wealth on a daily basis.
Forbes published their list of America’s Wealthiest Celebrities today, listing ten people that have made more money than you can ever imagine. Topping the rank is George Lucas with a net worth of $5.4 billion, whose film franchise has earned him a pretty penny over the years. Another famous director follows him as Steven Spielberg isn’t too far behind at $3.7 billion.
Oprah Winfrey and Michael Jordan follow them in the billion club before things get interesting at the fifth spot. Jay-Z and Kylie Jenner, who we’d like to remind you is only 21-years-old, are tied at $900 million. Behind them are David Copperfield, Diddy with $825 million, Tiger Woods, and James Patterson.
