The publication recently bestowed the title of billionaire upon her estranged husband Kanye West, and before that, her sister Kylie Jenner, though that was revoked after a deeper dive into her assets.
In October 2020, Kardashian’s net worth was estimated at $780 million, but just a few months and several hundred thousand dollars later, she’s broken a big barrier thanks to her latest business ventures: KKW Beauty and Skims.
Here’s a look at some other Hollywood stars who have been named billionaires:
West was deemed a billionaire by Forbes in April 2020, which estimated he was worth about $1.3 billion.
The ”Power” rapper, however, contested the number, and told the outlet that he’s worth $3.3 billion.
Furthermore, his exact net worth is muddled by Celebrity Net Worth’s massive estimate of $6.6 billion.
Though contested, at just 23, Jenner is said to be a billionaire.
Forbes originally bestowed the title of “the youngest self-made billionaire ever” in March of 2019.
Just a few months later, the outlet retracted the title, saying that after re-examining the self-inflated numbers provided to them, the star is actually worth just under $900 million. Jenner has stood by the figures she provided to the outlet.
Being a media mogul, it’s no surprise that Oprah Winfrey would be named a billionaire between her ventures in television, film and more.
An actress, Weight Watchers spokesperson, producer, network owner, author and more, Forbes has estimated that Winfrey is worth between $2.6 and $2.7 billion.
It comes as no surprise that one of Hollywood’s most prolific director-producers, Steven Spielberg, has also been named a billionaire by Forbes.
The outlet estimates that the movie mogul — known for directing hits like “Saving Private Ryan” and “Schindler’s List” as well as producing credits like “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” — to have a net worth of $3.7 billion.
Though he hasn’t released a full album in a handful of years, Jay-Z has remained a force in the music industry since bursting onto the scene in the 1990s.
Between creating “Star Wars” and the Indiana Jones franchises, Lucas has built himself a fortune.
With 14 theatrical releases from those two properties alone, not to mention other writing, directing and producing credits, the action-adventure icon is worth $7.4 billion, per Forbes.
Like many other Hollywood figures on this list, Tyler Perry does more work than as an actor in front of the camera.
The star owns a production company, as well as writes and directs films and television shows, and even participates in activism.
According to Forbes, he’s amassed a fortune of about a billion dollars.
