The top three most popular celebrities in the world were named by the American magazine Forbes. And this year, the list is headed by a model Kylie Jenner, who overtook singer’s Taylor Swift number 1 spot. Kanye West has been in second place for years. And after them, replacing Ed Sheeran on this line, tennis player Roger Federer. Together the participants of the rating have earned a huge sum – $6.1 billion. However, it is $200 million less than the last year’s leaders managed to gather.
So, closer to the numbers, Kylie Jenner earned $590 million this year, Forbes reported. Although Jenner has “exaggerated her business for years”, the money from the sale of 51% of her cosmetics company is quite real.
Kanye West, earning $170 million, included part of the proceeds from the Yeezy sneakers deal with Adidas. Tennis player Roger Federer earned $106.3 million and became the first representative of his sport to take first place among the athletes.
