(AllHipHop News) Kanye West has been named Forbes magazine’s top-earning male celebrity after banking $180 million over the past year.
The “Stronger” hitmaker is followed by tennis ace Roger Federer and soccer stars Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, who each earned just over $100 million.
The list, consisting of singers, entertainers, actors, athletes, and television personalities, also features Tyler Perry in the number five spot with $97 million, basketball star LeBron James, Howard Stern, and Dwayne Johnson with $87 million.
When asked by the TV personality if his upcoming bid for the presidency has been funded by Republicans who are “paying you to do what you’re doing to be a distraction,” West shot down the chatter by referencing his own wealth.
He shared, “Bro, can’t nobody pay me. I got more money than Trump.”
On Monday, Kanye’s sister-in-law Kylie Jenner was crowned the rich queen of the celebrity world with a 2019-2020 fortune amassing a whopping $590 million.
Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, also came in seventh on Forbes’ new list of top-earning famous females.
