    Okay, I’m confussed. Why is Barbra Streisand always left off the “super-rich” list? I have heard she is worth around 600 million. Her Malibu compound is easily worth over 100 million alone.

    Thank you

    But it’s not all that shocking that Babs is worth millions, while I think the rest of the people on the list are surprisingly rich – like I had no idea Howard Stern was worth that much money. There are richer people than the ones on this list (Oprah, hello?) but I think the point is that these people are richer than we thought they were.

      http://www.celebritynetworth.com/richest-celebrities/rock-stars/paul-mccartney-net-worth/ – 780 million – No surprise there. I thought he would be worth more. After all he was bigger than Jesus, right?

        Thanks for the info on Sir Paul. I would have thought much more than that, but still, I wouldn’t sneeze at it.

          McCartney’s worth was once estimated at more than a billion. Alas, divorce is expensive…

            Yep. Jay Arr Henderson. You are absolutely right. That Heather Mills ex-wife of Sir Paul knew exactly what she was after. I hope that gold-digging, sycophant goes to you know where. And if she does go to heaven, she’ll have to battle with Sir Paul’s deceased first wife Linda. Now she was a great and loving woman. And she being the grand-daughter of George Eastman (The inventor of the Kodak Camera), she wasn’t exactly on skid row herself. God Bless Sir Paul.

              Linda was not the grand daughter of George Eastman founder of Kodak.
              Her father was Lee Eastman a lawyer from Long Island, New York.

              George Eastman had no children!!! Get your facts straight!!!

          True, but didn’t he refer to the Beatles themselves as being bigger than Jesus, not himself?

        Paul is worth $1billion dollars pre divorce with that leach Heather (long john silver) Mills,he could be alot richer for example he gets inundated with offers to be the face of this and that and always says no his wealth has come from music alone.
        So on that note Paul McCartney/John Lennon have made the most cash from music and if they were to sell out which Yoko does for free Paul would be a multi billionaire,he went mad when Yoko pulled out of a bid to buy The Beatles catalogue at the last minute hence allowing MJ to buy it and start selling the songs to panasonic and cookie companies for adverts that decision alone from Yoko has easily cost Paul another $2 billion he would be the richest musician of alltime had he just went alone and bought the catalogue himself.He owns 4 Beatles songs,Love me do,please please me,she love’s you and 1 more i cant remember.
        I really hope he gets a chance to buy his catalogue back can you imagine having to pay someone else everytime you sung a song you had wrote yourself???

    Julia-Louise Dreyfuss is worth that much??? I’d still marry her if she was only worth 100 million, that’s how much I adore her.

      Louis-Dreyfus has dabbled in politics throughout her life, particularly known for her support of Al Gore’s 2000 US presidential bid, and also endorsed Barack Obama’s bid for the presidency in 2008

    So let’s look at the tale of the tape and about Tom Brady. 1). Tom Brady is the best Quarterback in football (forget about this Peyton guy) on one of the best football teams in the past decade. 2). He practices throwing a ball (which is child’s play). 3). Works every Sunday for only 3 hours at best (he might get hit on a rare occasion only if his offensive line is on target . 4). Win or lose, he will retreat to his mansion and get Monday and Tuesday off (unless he is playing a Monday Night Game, then he will have Sunday off) and when its “beddy-bye” time he gets to share his bed with the most beautiful woman on earth, that being No. 9 on this list. What a rough life Tom Brady must have. And on another note, I was amazed as to how wealthy Julia Louis-Dreyfus is !! Is she single, I wonder ??

      You really don’t understand the work that goes into football. He probably works like 12-14 hour days everyday including Sundays. Soooooo much work goes into football from daily practices, meetings and intense analysis of film (both of yourself and your opponents). Yes, he has an awesome life where he does what he loves for big bucks and has a hot wife, but he works way, way harder than most people.

    Here are the 3 solutions or answers for becoming “shockingly” rich. 1). Be born into money, 2). Marry into money and 3). Have a job where you make a lot of money. Examples : No.9 and No.3

    Check out Judge Judy for a real shocker. Her net worth is $250 million according to Forbes and she makes $45 million a year to be a rude little b#$ch to people. Disgusting.

    This is kind of misleading. The numbers that you have here are from a source that lists how much money they’ve made over their career, not how much in liquid assets they have. You’d be surprised at how broke some of these celebrities are. #1 being a great example. This guy is spending over $10 mill on cars a year and just giving them away. Trust me, PR isn’t likely to tell the public what the accountants know.

      Definitely not true, Birdman is also a major player in the narcotics game, he’s been buying expensive things for the last 10 years, and hasn’t stopped yet. This guy is worth way more than $100 million.

    These are a little misleading because if you’re making 45 million a year, how are you only worth $200 million?

    Reply
    1. TJ at |

      If you are making 45 million an year, a large portion(40%) of that is taken away as income tax. And a large portion is also spent by the celebrity right? Hence the net worth seems lesser than what the many years of annual earnings would add up to.

    Man I wonder what its like to have so much money in the bank just sitting there? I know you have to deal with fake family, friends and other people trying to get your money or find reasons to take your money but to never have to worry about your bills and at that point literally nothing being out of your reach financially I wish I knew what that was like

    some of these are grossly inflated, what people don’t know is that celebrities are terrible at managing money so even if they have a lot , misuse renders them bankrupt.

      @jd…how is it that you have this special knowledge of celebrity wealth managing skills and more accurate formulas than Forbes etc. for determining net worth guesstimates. It is interesting when someone says ” what people don’t know”… Maybe you do know something others do not. Odds are you don’t. I think you more likely read gossip columns and poorly vetted on line articles. and have an inflated sense of self worth. “Grossly inflated” Please stop making unfounded generalizations just to make yourself feel important.

      Really…it sounds as if you ingest a healthy dose of on vetted gossip columns. The only thing grossly inflated is your sense of self worth You make some pretty broad generalizations about celebrities and, their money managing skills. Aside from the few that were mishandled or became involved some overly self destructive behavior most celebrities do very well and are not bankrupt. Bankruptcy is actually quite rare among real celebrities…

    Quite a number of people I didn’t know are super rich: J.K Rowling: 1 billion dollars? WOW! I didn’t know authors could be this rich but Harry-Porter series is one of a kind and really addictive to read and Howard Stern? $500 million? whoa! I should become either a radio presenter or an author.
