Forbes has released their “Richest US Celebrity of 2018” list where Star Wars creator George Lucas came on top with an estimated net worth of $5.4 billion. Also making the list are two hardworking ladies: Oprah Winfrey and Kylie Jenner.
Oprah came in third, making her the richest woman, with $2.8 billion. This is reportedly thanks to her show and share holdings in Weight Watchers International, Inc. According to Bloomberg earlier this year, her fortune went up by $427 million from the latter.
New to the Forbes list is Kylie Jenner, who tied with Jay-Z at fifth place with $900 million. She is also the youngest person in the ranking. As we all know, Kylie Cosmetics is the reason she’s almost reaching billionaire status.
Also in the list are Steven Spielberg, Michael Jordan, Diddy, David Copperfield, Tiger Woods, and James Patterson.
We’d like to take this time to congratulate Oprah and Kylie for their hard work and success. You are absolute #girlbosses.[NBC News]
