Kylie Jenner is no longer at the top as Rihanna Dethrones surpasses her, proudly wearing the prestigious crown of the youngest self-made billionaire as per the Forbes’ 2022 list.
Yes, you heard that right. Rihanna Dethrones , aged 34, has efficiently managed to earn a net worth of $1.4 billion, making Kylie Jenner, with a net worth of $600 million, lose her throne after successfully reigning for three years. And that is not all! The co-owner of Fenty Beauty has other achievements up her notch. Rihanna Dethrones is also the first billionaire in her native place Barbados. Moreover, she is the only female under 40 to make it to the female billionaires in the United States list this year! And she is the most affluent female musician in the world.
The singer has a few music projects lined up that will add up to her net worth. But she owes her mass money surge to the beauty line Fenty Beauty, where she is the CEO. There is also the lingerie line Savage X Fenty, where she holds 30 per cent stakes and Fenty Skin.
You would think that now that Rihanna Dethrones has achieved such a great height, she would want to slow down or take a break. But you have got it all wrong! The singer shows no possibility of slowing down or taking a vacation from work any time in the near future. She has been teasing new music and told the New York Times in 2019 that “a number is not going to stop me from working.” Way to go, RiRi!
Rihanna’s heart is as big as her fortune. Rihanna Dethrones practices philanthropy. Back in 2012, she began the Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF) which according to its website, helps “support and fund groundbreaking education and climate resilience initiatives.” CLF has raised $60 million for women and also children who are victims of HIV/AIDS and joined forces with the #StartSmall initiative taken by Jack Dorsey, together donating $15 million to 18 climate justice groups in the States and the Caribbean.
Being just 34, there are plenty more years to come and we are sure that she will continue to thrive and her net worth will sky-rocket as the years pass by.
