Most of Rihanna’s fortune comes from her stake in Fenty Beauty.

Barbados-born singer Rihanna, who rose to fame after moving to the US, has become the richest female musician in the world: according to Forbes magazineShe is worth $1.7 billion. However, most of her income was not brought to her by the music business, which, however, helped her gain worldwide popularity.

According to Forbes experts, the main part of the wealth of 33-year-old Rihanna is the capitalization of the cosmetics company Fenty Beauty – her 50% stake in this business is estimated at $ 1.4 billion. Another 30% stake in Savage x Fenty, another related lingerie firm, is worth about $270 million. And only the remaining amount comes from income from a musical and acting career.

Richer than Rihanna in the world of show business – only one woman is the American TV presenter Oprah Winfrey, whose fortune Forbes estimates at $ 2.7 billion.

Rihanna founded Fenty Beauty in 2017 using her last name (the singer’s full name is Robin Rihanna Fenty).
