Kylie Jenner has officially topped the Forbes list of the highest-paid celebrities in 2020 with her earnings of $590 million - which totals more than N224 billion.
Forbes Magazine crowned the E! star and cosmetics mogul the highest-paid celebrity of 2020 despite Kylie's contentious history with the publication. The youngest of the Kardashian clan earned a huge portion of her money from the sale of a majority stake in her beauty brand to Coty Inc.
The rest of the list had the likes of sports stars, musicians and actors gracing it in order to land in the top 25 slots. Coincidentally, Kylie's brother-in-law, Kanye West, came in second by making $170 million. Most of the rapper's earnings were due to his partnership with Adidas.
Top-notch athletes like Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Neymar and LeBron James also hit the top 10, in addition to Hollywood staples Tyler Perry, Howard Stern and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
Taylor Swift was twenty-fifth on the Forbes countdown and tennis legend Roger Federer placed third with $106.3 million which put his paycheck for 2020.
Forbes also reported that the COVID-19 impact on the entertainment industry meant that the combined profits of the richest celebs were valued at $6.1 billion.
