Highest paid celebrities of 2018

Forbes has released its latest listing of the highest paid entertainers for 2018. The list includes sports stars, actors, musicians, and... a couple of Kardashians.

Overall, Floyd Mayweather, George Clooney, and Kylie Jenner are top of the pops in this year's ranking. Forbes went as far as naming Jenner the person most likely to become the youngest self-made billionaire later in the year. This accolade has apparently seen fans donating their own money to get Kylie to the billion dollar mark!

Out of the entire listing, spanning all spheres of the entertainment industry, only 14 women made the cut. These include the likes of Rihanna, Scarlett Johansson, Judge Judy, and Beyoncé.
