RiRi is now the richest self-made person in the US!
Yes, it’s true Rihanna has even dethroned the top self-made billionaires of the previous years making her all the way to the top. She is crowned as the youngest self-made billionaire in the United States under the age of 40 with a net worth of $1.4B. She is placed in the 21st position on the Forbes annual list of self-made billionaires in the USA.
This year Rihanna was blessed with a baby boy, even though she is not spotted more these days because she is busy with her child and mom life, she still has made her way to the news that too a good one.
Rihanna is now not just a singer but she is much more than that. For years we have known Rihanna for her singing career she gave us such iconic songs like Umbrella, Diamonds, Only Girl in the world, Run this town, Shut up and drive, Rudeboy, and many more. Even though half of her net worth comes from her singing career, she has other big businesses too.
Other than her being a singer she is also a fashion designer, actor & a businesswoman. Riri as an actor was a part of films like Guava Island, Oceans 8, battleship and others. She has also appeared in many TV shows for an episode or two.
Rihanna established Fenty beauty in the year 2017, it’s a cosmetic brand of Rihanna and is popular for its wide inclusivity for various skin types. It is co-owned with French Luxury Retailer LVMH. She also has another venture named “Savage x Fenty” which is a lingerie brand for all genders and sizes.
Rihanna’s net worth is a mix of all her ventures, but the brands like Fenty Beauty, Savage x Fenty, and Fenty skin have more contributions to her net worth cause most of the money comes out of these brands.
Savage x Fenty brand generated $550M in 2020 and Rihanna holds a 30% of stake in the line as mentioned by Forbes. In the year 2019, Kylie Jenner was crowned as the self-made billionaire in America but seems like Riri stole her title this year.
Rihanna is quite humble, in one of her interviews she revealed that money is not her priority, but she would like to use this wealth for a good purpose. She says,” My money is not for me; it’s always the thought that I can help someone else. The world can really make you believe that the wrong things are priority, and it makes you really miss the core of life, what it means to be alive.”
Other self-made billionaires’ name includes Kim Kardashian ($1.8B), Sandra Bullock ($225M), Kris Jenner ($230M), Beyonce ($450M), and many more.
