Rihanna Is Now the Youngest Self-Made Female Billionaire in the Country at 34

Others, like 41-year-old Kim Kardashian, are ranked higher than Rihanna on the list, the Grammy Award winner is the youngest billionaire to make the cut.

Just months after welcoming her first child, Rihanna is celebrating yet another milestone: being the youngest billionaire on Forbes‘ list of the richest self-made women in the country!

The “Love on the Brain” singer, 34, is worth a hefty $1.4 billion, which puts her at No. 21 on the list, which came out in June.

While others, like 41-year-old Kim Kardashian, are ranked higher than Rihanna on the list, the Grammy Award winner is the youngest billionaire to make the cut.

Forbes puts her self-made score as a 10, which means she built her own company or established the fortune on her own (Kardashian, for comparison, is listed as a 7). The outlet says those who score a 10 “would need to have been born into poverty or the lower middle class, and faced adversity such as abuse, being left an orphan or forced to work low-paying jobs.”

Rihanna, who reached billionaire status in August, largely has her Fenty Beauty cosmetics line to thank for her wealth, as it generated more than $550 million in revenue in 2020, and also made her the first person from Barbados to ever make Forbes‘ list.

The star also has a 30 percent stake in the Savage x Fenty lingerie line, which raised money at a $1 billion valuation in February 2021, according to Forbes.
