According to data compiled by Forbes magazine, 'The Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star has reportedly raked in $590 million (about R8.6 billion) thanks to selling 51 percent of her cosmetics company to Coty earlier this year. 

Kylie was the only woman to feature in the top 10 with her brother-in-law Kanye West in second place. However, his earnings were considerably lower than Kylie's, having brought in $170 million (about R2,5 billion) in 2020 largely thanks to his Adidas deal.
