Taylor Swift Tops Kylie Jenner, Named World's Highest-Paid Celebrity with $185 Million in Earnings

Kylie Jenner may have a net worth of $1 billion, but Taylor Swift is still the highest paid celebrity in the world.

According to Forbes, Taylor topped the publication’s list of the world’s highest-paid celebrities earning $185 million over the past year.

Last year, Taylor earned just $80 million — but she has her ‘Reputation’ Stadium Tour to thank for her massive gains.

The tour grossed $266.1 million to break the record for the highest-grossing tour in U.S. history, 

Kylie, who has been named the youngest self-made billionaire, came in second — earning $170 million over the last year. She sold an estimated $360 million worth of Kylie Cosmetics, a company she owns 100 percent of.

Although the top two spots were both women, women only made up 16 of the 100 top-paid celebrities.

Rounding out the top five was Kanye West, who earned $150 million in the last year. Argentinian soccer player Leonel Messi came in fourth with $127 million and Ed Sheeran took the fifth spot with $110 million.
