Forbes has just released its annual Billionaires List for 2023. It includes several stars such as Rihanna, Jay Z, and Kim Kardashian. Rihanna made it to the 2002nd position on the list with $1.4 billion. She owes her success to her Savage X Fenty underwear range and Fenty cosmetics collection. Furthermore, she has now been listed for the second consecutive year.
On the other hand, Kim Kardashian, who made it to the 2259th spot, has a wealth of $1.2 billion, down from $1.9 billion last year. However, her shapewear clothing line, Skims, has been estimated to be worth around $3.2 billion.
Unfortunately, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband, failed to make the list this year. Mostly because Adidas cut ties with him over anti-Semitic comments made on social media. Last year, the rapper was ranked 1513th on Forbes’ rich list. He also had a multi-year deal with Adidas for his brand Yeezy.
Other stars who made the list are Jay-Z and Oprah Winfrey. Jay-Z’s wealth went up to $2.5 billion from $1.4 billion, and he placed at 1217 on the list. Meanwhile, Oprah made the list at 1217 as well, but her wealth is down from $2.6 billion last year to $2.5 billion.
Overall, Forbes’ 2023 ranking has 2640 billionaires from 77 countries, and it’s interesting to see stars from different fields making it onto the list.
