Rihanna is now officially a billionaire and the world’s richest female musician.
According to Forbes, Rihanna is now “worth $1.7 billion – making her the wealthiest female musician in the world and second only to Oprah Winfrey as the richest female entertainer.”
Interestingly, it is not her earnings as an actor and a musician – perhaps what she is most commonly known for – that are the result of the new status.

The singer’s Fenty Beauty, first launched in 2017, seems to make up the bulk of her fortune and is estimated to be worth $1.4 billion.
As well as her beauty ventures, her lingerie company, Savage x Fenty, is reportedly valued at $270million.
It has been five years since Rihanna last released an album, and it appears that she has been largely focused on her non-music businesses instead.
Rihanna is yet to comment on the news.
