Though Forbes revoked Kylie Jenner’s billionaire status less than a week ago, she still topped the publication’s new list of the highest-paid celebrities in the world. To determine which celebrities were paid the most, Forbes looked at what each earned, pre-tax, between June 2019 and May 2020, before deducting fees for agents, lawyers and managers. The publication’s figures are sourced from Nielsen Music/MRC Data, Pollstar, IMDB, NPD BookScan, and ComScore, in addition to information gathered from interviews with industry experts as well as from the stars themselves. Jenner’s brother-in-law Kanye West is in a fairly distant second place on the list, with US$170 million in earnings. Tennis legend Roger Federer, who was recently ranked as the world’s highest-paid athlete, follows in the third spot.
