Kylie Jenner Is The Youngest Celebrity To Make Forbes 100 List
Kylie Jenner is the youngest celebrity to make this year’s Forbes’ Celebrity 100 list.
At just 19-years old, Kylie is officially one of the highest earning stars of 2017.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star came in at number 59 on this year’s rich list, with her raking in $41 million over the last 12 months.
With her endless endorsements for brands like Pacsun, Topshop and Puma, as well as her Kylie Cosmetics range – home to the world-famous lip kit – it’s no surprise she has a huge pay check.
And she still makes regular appearances on the E! reality show that brought the Kardashian-Jenner clan to fame.
It’s the brunette beauty’s first time on the Forbes 100, but with her ever-growing success it seemingly won’t be her last.
She pipped the likes of comedian Amy Schumer – $37.5 million – and Chance the Rapper – $33 million – to the post.
But Kylie isn’t the only Kardashian star to make this year’s list.
Older sister Kim Kardashian came in at number 47, earning slightly more with $45.5 million.
Topping Forbes’ annual ranking is none other than American rapper Diddy.
And while the Kardashian’s certainly earn more than most of us could ever dream of, their earnings come nowhere near to Diddy’s $130 million.
The majority of the artist’s dollars come from him selling one-third of his clothing line for $70 million.
His partnership with Diageo Ciroc vodka, as well as his Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour, also adds to his financial success.
And while Beyonce and J.K. Rowling also made the top three, it isn’t great news for pop princess Taylor Swift.
Swift has had the biggest percentage drop in her earnings than any other star.
In 2016, the blonde songstress earned an incredible $170 million.
And with her worldwide 1989 tour being a complete sell-out, it’s no surprise that she topped the list.
But this year the hitmaker has so far raked in $44 million, a drop of over 74%.
Jenner tweeted of her Forbes 100 success, saying,
Wow woke up the youngest entry on the Forbes 100 list
