Rihanna becomes Sunday Times’ third richest musician in Britain
Rihanna is the third-richest musician in Britain, according to the Sunday Times Rich List.
The 32-year-old Bajan singer, who moved to London last year, is worth an estimated £468 million. While the star is best-known for her eight albums and extensive catalogue of chart hits, the vast majority of her wealth stems from her partnership with LVMH – the French luxury goods brand.
Their cosmetics brand, launched in 2017, is valued at $3 billion – which means Rihanna’s 15 per cent stake in the company is worth £351.6 million.
Rihanna, real name Robyn Fenty, also has her lingerie range Savage X Fenty, as well as her acting career, to account for her substantial fortune.
Rihanna is one of only two women to occupy the top 10 in the list – the other being Olivia Harrison, the wife of late Beatles star George Harrison, worth £270 million.
Sir Paul McCartney and Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber share the top spot in today’s music Rich List, each with an estimated £800m fortune.
