the

10 RICHEST Celebrities In The World

in today's video I'll be counting down

the 10 richest celebrities in the world

today the measurement for the wealth of

these celebrities is the amount of money

they've made between June of 2017 and

June of 2018 provided by our favorite

magazine Forbes all of the individuals

on the list will have familiar faces but

some of them may surprise you from

athletes to actors to musicians all 10

of the individuals have had a prolific

year that has been very kind on their

wallets so without further ado let's

begin the countdown at number 10 the

world's highest-paid celebrities our

first syllable the list is an athlete

and a dashingly handsome one at that

Cristiano Ronaldo the football star

garnered millions thanks to his player

contracts and sponsorships in his tenure

at Real Madrid last year he earned his

fifth Ballon D or the award given to the

world's best soccer player last year he

made 44 appearances for the Spanish club

and totaled a remarkable 44 goals the

big news however is the blockbuster

signing that came on July 10th when cr7

left Madrid and took his talents to his

new club in Italy Juventus Juventus

managed to snag the Portuguese superstar

for a pretty a hundred and twenty

million euros in a four year contract

along with that massive pile of cash

Ronaldo has copious sponsorships under

his belt including but not limited to

Electronic Arts Herbalife oh and also a

1 billion dollar lifetime contract with

Nike all these sources of income result

in Cristiano holding the title of the

world's third highest paid athlete and

the 10th highest paid celebrity

last year the Ronaldo pulled in about a

hundred and eight million dollars on top

of all that cash he is the most popular

athlete in the world with an incredible

total of 322 million followers on social

media number 9 ed Sheeran Sheeran makes

the list with a hundred and ten million

dollars earned last year he's one of the

most well known musicians on the planet

and one that is sure to jerk a few tears

out of the eye we've all been there the

Englishman resides in London where he

collects massive checks coming from his

of streams and sold-out concerts while

ed sheeran isn't the highest music

related item on the list

he is the highest-paid solo artists in

the world which is amazing considering

some of the big names of solo performing

artists including Beyonce ariana grande

or Justin Bieber along with his millions

gained from his music he's also made

cameos in TV shows such as The Simpsons

and Game of Thrones perhaps the most

remarkable fact to note concerning

Sheeran's appearance on this list is

that the man is only 27 years old it's

rather amazing how quickly the young man

solidified himself as a music superstar

and he's got millions of dollars to show

for it another football superstar Lionel

Messi the Argentinian has spent his

entire football career at Barcelona and

it doesn't look like he'll be leaving

anytime soon

in November of 2011 Messi signed a

contract extension that keeps him at the

Spanish club until 2021 and ensures that

the club pay him an annual salary and

bonus in excess of 80 million dollars

making him the highest paid for his work

on the pitch last year he scored 45

goals in all competitions and holds the

record for the most goals scored in a

single la liga season which makes sense

considering he is La Liga's top scorer

of all time along with his massive

football contract Messi has a lifetime

contract with Adi das and other

sponsorships such as Gatorade Pepsi and

MasterCard China is a country that has

taken such a liking to Messi that they

are constructing a theme park called the

Messi experience park this park is set

to open in 2020 in total Messi gathered

a hundred and eleven million dollars

just last year number 7 Coldplay the

seventh spot on our list comes in the

form of a band Coldplay has become one

of the biggest bands of all time the big

ticket item that got him on that spot on

the list was the massive tour they went

on over the past two years Chris Martin

in companies a head full of dreams to

her grossed more than a half a billion

dollars in its two-year five continent

run that total means Coldplay trails

only u2's 360 tour and the Rolling

Stones are big

bang tour on the all-time list besides

these two bands and the Beatles and

perhaps one or two of us there really

isn't a more successful band to ever

exist the band managed to rake in a

hundred and fifteen point five million

dollars last year alone number six

u2 u2 just barely tops Coldplay as the

highest-paid musical group in the world

thanks to their tour of the 30th year

anniversary of their album the Joshua

Tree this tour grossed over 300 million

making it the most lucrative outing of

2017 along with the tour the band

released their fourteenth studio album

called Songs of Experience porno and

company have made a case for themselves

being the best rock band of all time

while their success can be ignored

that is certainly a debate for another

time last year the band pulled in around

a hundred and eighteen million dollars

number five Dwayne Johnson Dwayne the

rock Johnson is everywhere these days

turn on any television and within

minutes this massive bald man will find

his way onto the screen without a doubt

Johnson is the go-to action hero in

movies today thanks to his colossal

following on social media the rock is

able to negotiate huge contracts for his

movies making him the highest-paid actor

in the world last year thanks to

blockbusters like Jumanji Johnson was

able to total his revenue at a hundred

and twenty four million dollars some of

his other recent blockbusters include a

rampage and Baywatch Johnson is already

scheduled for a new installment of The

Fast and Furious franchise coming later

this year along with his millions made

from movies Johnson also stars in the

HBO series ballers and produced and

hosts a show on NBC called the Titan

Games all of this work and the man still

manages to wake up a full 5 a.m. to hit

the gym and get some pumps in incredible

number four Judy Scheindlin

number four is perhaps the most

surprising on this list but as it turns

out Judge Judy makes Bank the eponymous

show has been on the air for 22 seasons

and is watched by an average of more

than 10 million viewers a day from Judge

Judy alone Judy makes 47 million

a year but what Judy got so high on the

list for was the selling of the rights

to a massive library last year I'm not

sure how big and how extensive a library

has to be to be able to sell the rights

for a hundred million dollars but judge

Judy's library is just that with that

amazing sell and the money earned from

her incredibly successful show Judy

Scheindlin earns the number four spot on

the list with a hundred and forty seven

million dollars made last year number

three

Kylie Jenner the third celeb on the list

is the youngest on the list and soon to

be the youngest self-made billionaire

the reality TV star Kylie Jenner has

made millions with her makeup company

last year her profits continued to soar

and she was able to pull in a hundred

and sixty six million dollars herself

currently Jenna is worth just under one

billion but it seems it won't be long

until she hits that magic number

Kylie Cosmetics has sold more than six

hundred and thirty million dollars worth

of makeup since its founding in February

2016

famous for its $29 lip liner and

lipstick lip kits Kylie cosmetic has

since expanded into eyeshadow

highlighter eyeliner and more keep in

mind the young mogul is just 21 years

old

number 2 George Clooney the number 2

spot on the list belongs to another

actor but it wasn't his acting that

placed him above his fellow Hollywood

star last year George Clooney sold his

tequila company that he started with his

friends Rhonda Gerber and Mike meldman

the company called Kissimmee gose was

purchased by British liquor giant Diageo

for an astonishing 700 million dollars

so while mr. Clooney may not be acting

as much these days don't worry he's

still able to put food on the table

thanks to this monster transaction

Clooney was able to rack in 239 million

dollars for himself last year this sale

grants Clooney with the best annual take

home of any actor in history the

Cincinnati dropout will be drinking to

that for years to come besides Nespresso

commercials Clooney has enacted since

2016 but this year he starts in a

miniseries called catch-22 based on the

classic novel by Joseph Heller

number one Floyd Mayweather on august 26

2017 Floyd money Mayweather and the

notorious Conor McGregor fought in what

is known as the money fight or the

biggest fight in combat sports history

needless to say and as I'm sure you've

heard Mayweather won a whole lot of

money that night and not just because he

won the fight Floyd was also the

promoter of the fight throughout his

career Mayweather has served as his own

promoter from winnings promotion fees

and sponsorships

the undefeated boxer was able to pull in

285 million dollars just last year

making him the world's highest-paid

celebrity Mayweather has won titles in

five different weight classes including

super featherweight lightweight light

welterweight welterweight and light

middleweight many make a case for

Mayweather as the greatest boxer of all

time while others contest that Ollie is

still the greatest mayweather is by far

the highest-paid box of the sport has

ever seen in fact his all-time earnings

are close to 1 billion dollars making

him the first 1 billion dollar man in

boxing and he doesn't even sell a

miniature portable grill so at 285

million dollars in the last financial

year Floyd money Mayweather is the

highest-paid celebrity of 2018 let me
