Rihanna Is Now Officially the Youngest Self-Made Female Billionaire in the US

Dethroning Kim Kardashian.

At just 34 years old, Rihanna is now America’s youngest self-made female billionaire, according to Forbes.

The Barbados native is #21 on the list with a net worth of $1.4 billion USD. At 41 years old, Kim Kardashian is considered the next-youngest billionaire with a net worth of $1.8 billion USD. She ranked #16 on the list.

In 2018, Kylie Jenner was named the publication’s youngest self-made billionaire. However, after a recalculation that proved her net worth actually sat at $900 million USD instead of $1 billion USD, her title was taken away. Now, Jenner is the youngest non-billionaire on the list with a current net worth of $600 million USD, ranking at #41.

In April, Rihanna joined Forbes‘ iconic list of worldwide billionaires for the first time. At the time, the singer-slash-entrepreneur ranked #1,729 with a net worth of $1.7 billion USD. This made her the first billionaire of her home country, Barbados.

Check out the full list of Forbes‘ self-made female billionaires here.
