The 31-year-old songstress has overtaken Beyoncé, Madonna and Celine Dion for the title of the world’s richest female musician, Forbes has revealed.
Rihanna has been confirmed as the wealthiest female musician in the world, according to Forbes.
Over the course of her career, the 31-year-old Bajan songstress has become more than a singer – she’s a style icon, a beauty entrepreneur, and is in charge of her own luxury fashion house with LVMH.
These factors all contribute to Rihanna’s astonishing $600 million fortune, and make her the richest female musician in the world. She overtakes well-known money-makers ($570 million), Céline Dion ($450 million) and Beyonce ($400 million).
As well as her record-breaking music releases, Rihanna, real name Robyn Rihanna Fenty, owes a great deal of her eye-watering fortune to her partnership with French luxury goods company LVMH.
Rihanna co-owns her ground-breaking cosmetics brand Fenty Beauty with LVMH, which is sold online and in stores all around the globe. It made a reported $100 million in sales during its debut weeks, while the entire operation is worth over $3 billion.
Additionally, the ‘Needed Me’ singer also co-ownsher popular lingerie brand Savage X Fenty with TechStyle Fashion Group, a Los Angeles-based online fashion company.
Most recently, Rihanna and LVMH announced the launch of FENTY, a luxury clothing brand spearheaded by the R&B singer which will sell high-end clothes, shoes, jewelry and accessories.
The star recently outed herself as a London-dweller, and is reportedly renting a £16,000-a-week mansion in the UK Capital worth a staggering 30 Million.
