It’s fair to say Rihanna – real name Robyn Fenty – has been pretty busy lately. What with the launch of her latest Savage x Fenty lingerie campaign and running Fenty Beauty (not to mention dating A$AP Rocky), it’s almost easy to forget that she’s actually a hugely successful pop-star too.
It comes as no surprise then, that Forbes have announced that Rihanna is officially a billionaire. I mean, she’s earned it.
Forbes estimate that Rihanna is now worth $1.7 billion, making her the wealthiest female musician in the world, and the second wealthiest female entertainer after Oprah Winfrey. However, Forbes indicate that the bulk of her wealth (around $1.4 billion) actually comes from Fenty Beauty, of which she owns 50 percent.
Most of her remaining wealth is tied to her stake in her lingerie company, Savage x Fenty, which Forbes estimates is worth $270 million, in addition to her earnings as a musician and actress.
Fenty Beauty was first announced in 2016 after Rihanna secured a deal with the Kendo division of LVMH. And judging from the latest news, it’s going from strength to strength.
