KYLIE Jenner has been named the highest-paid celebrity of 2020, beating out the competition by more than $400 million (€328 million).

Thanks to a deal struck with beauty conglomerate Coty Inc, which saw her sell a 51 per cent controlling stake in her Kylie Cosmetics brand in January, the youngest Kardashian/Jenner topped the list and earned more than the rest of the top five combined.

According to Forbes highest-paid celebrity of 2020 list, despite a crippling year for most due to the COVID pandemic and economic crisis, the reality star turned beauty and cosmetics mogul raked in almost $600 million (€492 million).

Another Kardashian/Jenner link comes in the form of the second highest-earner, Kanye West, who brought in $170 million (€139 million), after collecting most of his earnings from his Yeezy sneakers deal with Adidas.

The rest of the top 10 were as follows:

  • ROGER FEDERER ($106.3M)
  • LIONEL MESSI ($104M)
  • TYLER PERRY ($97M)
  • NEYMAR ($95.5M)
  • LEBRON JAMES ($88.2M)
