12. Ellen DeGeneres - $84 million

The talk show host may have gone through a lot in 2020, but her $84 million fortune probably makes it a lot easier.

She's made most of her money from her talk show, which gives her an eight-figure salary per year.

She also earns a good paycheck from producing shows other than her own. This includes *Little Big Shots*.

Like many celebs, she secured a lucrative deal with Netflix.

In 2018, she became the first woman to receive $20 million for a stand-up special.

11. Rush Limbaugh - $85 million

The radio host is known for stirring up controversy — and millions.

He recently renewed his contract with Premiere Radio Networks, the broadcasting network that pays him about $70 million annually. He's also the author of seven books.

10. Dwayne Johnson - $87.5 million

Humble and successful — two words you could use to describe the actor.

After making the switch from wrestling to acting, he's become the world's highest-paid actor. Currently, he makes around $20 million per movie.

He also brings in lots of money with small-screen projects, such as the competition show *The Titan Games*.

Like celebs like Ryan Reynolds, he has his own alcoholic brand.

He owns Teremana Tequila Blanco, which is so popular that it often sells out.

9. Lebron James - $88.2 million

It's hard to think "basketball" without thinking "King James." Similarly, it's hard to think of him without thinking about his millions.

He has earned most of it through his time on the Los Angeles Lakers. Currently, he's under a $153 million contract.

8. Howard Stern - $90 million

This veteran Shock Jock is known for his hilarious personality, insane antics, and honest interviewing skills.

He's also the highest-paid radio host with his eight-figure annual contract with SiriusXM. Nope, there is none quite like Howard.

Since The King of All Media's contract with Sirius is almost up, he's reportedly undergone negotiations already.

According to Bloomberg, he is in talks to get pay raise from his current annual salary.

This would bring him up to $120 million a year!

7. Neymar - $95.5 million

Want to earn big bucks? Learn how to play soccer professionally. The athlete is currently in a five-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain that earns him $350 million in salary.

As a soccer ambassador, he also earns a good paycheck from endorsements.

6. Tyler Perry - $97 million

You've likely heard of Tyler Perry movies.

That's because the actor, director, producer, and writer has made a lot of them. This largely includes the "Madea" franchise, which has grossed more than $660 million. He also works closely with BET.

5. Lionel Messi - $104 million

You don't get awarded FIFA's Player of the Year without being valuable enough to be worth millions!

The athlete currently earns $80 million a year via his soccer contract. Plus, he earns a lot from his own clothing line.

4. Cristiano Ronaldo - $105 million

In addition to being the most-followed celeb on Instagram, he's one of the highest-paid athletes in the world.

This was even after taking a huge pay cut to join the team Juventus after spending nine years with Real Madrid.

This was a huge risk to take, but one that paid off in other ways.

His jerseys, for instance, for the new team sold over $60 million within 24 hours!

He also earns top dollar for his celeb endorsements, such as with his partnership with Nike.

3. Roger Federer - $106.3 million

If you thought Christiano was the highest-paid athlete in the world, think again.

It's actually the tennis pro, thanks to his many endorsement deals. This includes the Japanese apparel line, Uniqlo, which has him in a 10-year contract for $300 million.

2. Kayne West - $170 million

It was earlier this year that the rapper was officially announced as a billionaire.

Forbes announced this exciting news back in April. They wrote that it took a while since the rapper was slow to submit documentation.

But when he did, he proved that he was, in fact, mega-rich.

A huge portion of Kayne's success comes from his Yeezy sneaker brand deal with Adidas.

According to Forbes, it pulled in an estimated $1.3 billion in sales in 2019.

1. Kylie Jenner - $590 million

The reality star topped Forbes' list this past August, but it took her some time — and a lot of grief — to get there.

That's because she feuded with the publication after they revoked her billionaire status for allegedly lying about the success of her makeup brand, Kylie Cosmetics.

“What am i even waking up to. i thought this was a reputable site…” Jenner tweeted after the site published an article with a cutthroat title.

It read: "Inside Kylie Jenner’s Web of Lies — and Why She’s No Longer a Billionaire” in May.

Well, if anyone is laughing, it's Kylie on her way to the bank!
