Forbes has again released the latest list of the World Top 100 Highest Paid Celebrities. The Celebrities reach a $6.3 Billion height just in 12 months.

World Top 100 Highest Paid Celebrities

There’s never been a better time to be famous. The world’s 100 top-earning celebrities pulled in a combined $6.3 billion pretax over the past 12 months, up 22% from last year; 11 superstars crossed the $100 million threshold, more than double the number from the last two years combined.

Those are just a few of the takeaways from the 20th annual Celebrity 100 package, our accounting of the highest-paid front-of-camera stars on the planet. Floyd Mayweather tops the ranking with $285 million in pretax earnings, almost entirely on the strength of his August 2017 fight versus list mate Conor McGregor. George Clooney finishes second with $239 million, most of it coming from liquor giant Diageo’s purchase of Casamigos, the tequila company he co-founded, giving him the best annual take-home of his—or any actor’s—career.

Kylie Jenner who made Forbes Cover page, pulled in $166.5 million to claim the No. 3 spot, boosted by a sprawling cosmetics empire that has her on the verge of becoming a billionaire before she’s old enough to drink. Judge Judy Sheindlin’s $147 million puts her at No. 4—buoyed by the sale of her TV library for $100 million—while DwayneThe Rock” Johnson rounds out the top five with $124 million thanks to blockbusters like newly-released Skyscraper.
