Taylor Swift beats the Kardashians as highest paid celebrity

Taylor Swift beats the Kardashians as highest paid celebrity”

Taylor's income mainly comes from touring, which comes as no surprise as her Reputation Stadium Tour was named the highest-grossing United States tour ever whilst "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star Kylie's success is linked to her cosmetics business and her popular social media following. She also switched labels and signed a new deal with Universal that accounts for more of that revenue.

The singer previously topped the list in 2016 with $170 million.

All-told, the 29-year-old earned an estimated $185 million in the past 12 months, an increase of 131% from 2018.

Social media and reality TV star Kylie Jenner is ranked second on the list with an estimated pre-tax pay packet of $170m (£136m).

Forbes compiled its 2019 list by estimating pre-tax earnings from June 2018-June 2019, before deducting fees for managers, based on data from Nielsen, touring trade publication Pollstar, movie database IMDB and interviews with industry experts and numerous celebrities themselves.

Earlier this year, Jenner earned a place on Forbes' list of the world's richest self-made women thanks to an estimated net worth of around $1 billion (£800m). According to Forbes, Akshay Kumar is paid between $5 million to $10 million per movie and earns millions from endorsement deals with over 20 brands. The 21-year-old is No. 2,057 on the magazine's billionaires list, a ranking that does not include Swift.

Kim Kardashian West is at 26th on the list with $72 million, Robert Downey Jr. was at 31st with $66 million whilst Rihanna made it to 36 with $62 million. West re-entered the list after 4 years, mostly owing to his Yeezy sneaker line.
