Her massive empire eclipses that of Madonna, Celine Dion and Beyonce.
At just 31 years old, Rihanna is officially the richest female musician on Earth.
That's according to a profile on Tuesday (June 4) in Forbes, which estimates the singer's massive warchest at around $600 million, putting RiRi north of such fellow music superstars as Madonna ($570 million), Celine Dion ($450 million) and Beyoncé ($400 million).
On the heels of the news that her early mentor Jay-Z has just become the first rap billionaire, the snapshot of Rihanna's rise to riches focuses not on her music sales or concert proceeds, but rather her savvy move into fashion and partership with French luxury goods giant LVMH. Their collaboration on Fenty Beauty -- which launched in September 2017 at LVMH-owned Sephora -- was an out-of-the-box success, with the brand racking up a reported $100 million in sales in just its first few weeks.
