Kylie Jenner, the youngest billionaire, was the second on the list with $170 million, thanks to her flourishing online lip kits and cosmetics company.

The annual Forbes Celebrity 100 list also included soccer stars Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar among the top 10, along with British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran and 1970s soft rock band The Eagles.

Kim Kardashian's husband, Kanye West returned to the list after a four-year absence. Forbes estimated his pre-tax earnings to be $150 million, garnered mostly by his famous Yeezy sneaker line, putting him in third place. Kim Kardashian came No.26 on the list.
