The Sunday Times, releasing its annual rich list shows Rihanna as the richest female musician owning a fortune of £468 million.
Rihanna is now part of the richest people living in the UK who are musicians. She is just behind Sir Paul McCartney and Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber. Both are in joint first place with £800 million each.
She could be going higher next year as Andrew Lloyd Webber’s finances are expected to take a big hit due to the Covid-19.
It is thought that the composer could lose millions as a result of the closure of theatres; in the West End and on Broadway amid the coronavirus lockdown.
Even though Rihanna may not have released any new music in 2019, but this shows she is working past her music career.
Her insane bank balance comes from not only her music but also from Fenty Beauty and Savage X Fenty lingerie company. She is making partnership with LVMH to launch the clothing line arm of her business; Savage X Fenty lingerie line while her Fenty Beauty is valued at $3 billion
