Pop icon and Fenty Beauty business owner Rihanna is now on the official Forbes list of billionaires with an estimated earning of 1.7 billion dollars and according to the popular wealth magazine, most of her earnings have been generated by her fashion and beauty pursuits.
“Riri” is also noted by the popular Complex magazine to be the first Billionaire that has come from the island of Barbados and she received a National honour recently.
The achievement for Rihanna now places her amongst the 2,755 billionaires that are said by Forbes to be in the world.
As for the ones at the top of the list, there is Elon Musk in the number one position with an estimated net worth of $290 Billion, to take the title from Jeff Bezos who is now in second place followed by the French businessman Bernard Arnault in third place who is the chairman and CEO of the conglomerate LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton, then Bill Gates the Ceo of Microsoft in fourth and businessman Warren Buffett to close of the top 5.
In terms of other celebrity women who made the cut, there were; Kim Kardashian and Oprah Winfrey but the spotlight has been cast down on Rihanna since her name has been in the news ever so often since lately due to her pregnancy and fashion statements that have been coming with it.
One thing that is known for sure is that the Pop singer/Businesswoman’s wealth will only be going up from here since she is reported by Forbes to own 30 per cent of her Savage x Fenty Lingerie line as well as a good percentage of the cosmetics company she operates in collaboration with LVMH out of France.
