It’s Official: Rihanna Is Now The Youngest Female Self-Made Billionaire

Rihanna is now officially the youngest person at 34 years old on Forbes’ 2022 list of self-made female billionaires in the United States amassing a whopping net worth of $1.4 billion.

Back in March 2019, Kylie Jenner held the title of youngest self-made billionaire after signing a distribution deal with beauty retailer Ulta for Kylie Cosmetics products. Forbes reported that this move helped increase Kylie Cosmetics’ estimated worth to “at least” $900 million, making Kylie a billionaire. However, in May 2020, Forbes published an article saying that their staff “recalculated Kylie’s net worth and concluded that she is not a billionaire,” but rather a “more realistic accounting of her personal fortune puts it at just under $900 million.”

Rihanna⁠ (co-owner of Fenty Beauty and holder of a 30 percent stake in her Savage x Fenty lingerie line⁠) also happens to be Barbados’ first billionaire, according to Forbes, as well as the only woman under 40 on this year’s list of female billionaires in the U.S.

Rihanna⁠ has been teasing that she has new music in the works, so her net worth may soon go up once her new music hits the music scene.

“I’m looking at my next project completely differently from the way I had wanted to put it out before. I think this way suits me better, a lot better,” she told Vogue. “It’s authentic, it’ll be fun for me, and it takes a lot of the pressure off.”
