These women in the entertainment industry are proving that women can in fact, earn more than men. Through endorsements, products and hard work, these badass women rake in so much more than their men.
You might not think it’s true but, it’s estimated that in 2017, Meghan took home at least $450,000 USD compared to her soon-to-be husband, Prince Harry, who took home $45,000 USD (his royal inheritance notwithstanding).
While the two are earning handsomely, we reckon Meghan will still continue to earn despite retiring from acting. The actress may receive royalties (pun not intended) from her show, Suits — especially when it gets picked up and aired on different streaming networks around the world.
Despite putting out his 444 album last year, Jay-Z still continued to earn less than his wife, Beyonce.
According to Forbes, Beyonce earns approximately $54 million yearly through endorsement deals, concert sales and clothing products. Beyonce’s also gets royalties from her music being on Tidal, the subscription-based music streaming website.
However, the couple recently announced that they’ll be going on tour once again, which definitely means they’ll be earning so much more.
With a beauty line, app and video game, Kim Kardashian’s definitely earning way more than her husband, Kanye West. Thanks to all the endorsement deals and TV royalties (just to name a few), all three of the couple’s children are set for life.
Even with his clothing line, Kanye takes home about $17.5 million USD annually. Kim on the other hand, makes about $42 million USD annually.
The youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan reportedly makes $41 million USD per year thanks to endorsement deals, TV royalties and of course, her Kylie Cosmetics line.
The beauty mogul’s business is projected to rake in $1 billion by 2022 after it made $420 million in sales in 18 months.
Kylie’s partner on the hand, Travis Scott, is said to rack up $835.3K yearly.
Before she announced her divorce from Justin Theroux, the actress was earning about $200 million per year as compared to his $20 million.
Jennifer was part of Living Proof hair care before they split when cosmetics giant Unilever acquired them. Still, we think Jen got a piece of the financial pie and has signed several endorsement deals too.
Thanks to all the movies she starred in and her show, Big Little Lies, Nicole took home about $130 million as compared to husband Keith Urban who takes home about $75 million.
The Bodak Yellow singer is said to earn more than her partner, Offset (who’s part of the rap group, Migos).
Currently, Cardi’s net worth is said to be around $5 million, compared to her fiance’s $4 million.
The singer is slowly putting out more music and winning awards, so we’re certain it won’t be long before their income gap gets bigger.
She might not be together with her musician beau, Zayn Malik, but during the time they were dating, the super model (who’s walked for Victoria’s Secret and Chanel) earned about $9.5 million annually.
Zayn on the other hand was earning about $5 million.
Her partner might be a former professional baseball player but, Jennifer’s still earning more than he does thanks to all her endorsement deals, hosting gigs and so much more.
The singer takes home about $200 million yearly.
Gisele’s husband, Tom Brady makes a cool $180 million a year as a football player in a major NFL team but, Gisele practically doubles that with the $360 million she earns annually.
