Mayweather beats Jay Z, Kylie Jenner, Messi on Forbes’ Celebrity Money List

Boxing superstar Floyd Mayweather Jr reigns supreme on Forbes 20th annual Celebrity 100 package of the highest-paid front-of-camera stars right now.

The retired pugilist leads a host of stars raking in insane amounts of dollars in their various acts – pulling in a combined $6.3 billion pretax over the past year.

With June 2017-June 2018 in view, Mayweather, 41, reportedly made an eye-watering $285 million.

Hollywood heavyweight George Clooney takes the No. 2 spot by bagging $239 million for the period.

Reality star Kylie Jenner, 20, 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.

Judge Judy pulled in $147 million putting her at No. 4 while Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson completes the top five with $124 million.

Barcelona and Argentina talisman Lionel Messi is 8th on the list after earning in excess of $80 million, while his eternal rival, Cristiano Ronaldo comes in at number 10 after raking in $50 million.

British singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran was named as the highest-earning solo artist, at No. 9 with an estimated $110 million in earnings.

The ‘Shape of You’ singer is the only solo act in the top ten, and he’s closely followed by Bruno Mars at No.11, Katy Perry at No.19, and Taylor Swift at No. 21.

The highest ranked rapper on the list is JAY-Z at No. 25 with $76.5 million, with Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs at No. 32 with $64 million, Beyoncé Knowles at No. 35 with $60 million and serial hitmaker Drake is at No. 53 with $47.
