Janet Jackson is now a billionaire.
Janet Jackson has everything going for her. On top of being a pop legend and having numerous hit singles, she is now an official member of the billionaire club.
According to Variety Magazine, the 47-year-old singer earned over $450 million from concert tours. She took in more than $300 million stemming from acting jobs. Album sales landed her $260 mil and she received over $80 million from sponsorships. That’s some serious dough.
Jackson is now joining the financial ranks of highly successful celebrities like Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey. It seems the status is a signature of the family. Janet’s husband is also a billionaire, having earned his massive pile of cash investing in the Middle East.
Another ridiculously wealthy celeb is Jerry Seinfeld. It was recently reported that the hit sitcom ‘Seinfeld’ raked in $3.1 billion from re-runs since the show’s ending 15 years ago.
The comedy got its start in 1989 and ran for 9 years on the NBC network. The co-creators, both Larry David and star of the show, Jerry Seinfeld have pocketed approximately $400 million each, solely from syndication deals.
