Forbes has released its 20th annual Celebrity 100 package of the highest-paid front-of-camera stars right now.
These stars are raking in insane amounts of dollars pulling in a combined $6.3 billion pretax over the past year, up 22% from last year.
With June 2017-June 2018 in view, Floyd Mayweather, American boxer, was named the world’s highest-paid entertainer earning $285 million in that period.
George Clooney takes the No. 2 spot with the bagging $239 million in a year.
Kylie Jenner, 20-year-old reality star, came in third with $166.5 million largely thanks to her booming cosmetics line that Forbes said put her on track to become the youngest self-made billionaire in the US.
