  • Taylor Swift Tops Forbes’ Highest Paid Celebrities List With $185 Million

Forbes noted that Swift's 2018 "Reputation" stadium trek was the highest grossing tour in US history at $266.1 million, and also that the artist benefitted from a new deal with Universal's Republic label and the sharing of proceeds from Universal's sale of its Spotify stake. She also recently moved from her old label, Big Machine Records, to Universal's Republic Records.

An interesting fact about this list is that Akshay has been beaten by everyone's favourite Robert Downey Jr. aka Iron Man by an earnings of $1 million.

All-told, the 29-year-old earned an estimated $185 million in the past 12 months, an increase of 131% from 2018.

Forbes compiled its 2019 list by estimating pre-tax earnings from June 2018-June 2019, before deducting fees for managers, based on data from Nielsen, touring trade publication Pollstar, movie database IMDB and interviews with industry experts and numerous celebrities themselves. In 2018, she was in the No. 3 spot, with earnings of $166.5 million.

Makeup mogul Kylie Jenner earned $170 million last year, according to Forbes, making her the second-highest-paid celeb of the year.

Touring is filling Taylor's coffers again this time around. the Reputation Stadium Tour broke her own record as the highest-grossing tour in the United States with an eye-popping $266.1 million. The oldest person on the list is Beatles' legend Sir Paul McCartney, 77-years-old, at number 62 with $48 million.

Earlier this year Forbes declared Jenner to be the world's youngest billionaire. He also makes "millions for endorsement deals with over 20 brands".

Swift, Jenner, and West might be earning nine figures annually, but they're not the only celebrities who enjoyed huge paydays in the a year ago.

The Forbes list, released Wednesday, ranks 100 celebrities, including musicians, film stars, athletes and comedians.
