What did these entertainers do differently to build such a massive net worth? They used their Hollywood success and fame to venture into other businesses or invested their millions into publically traded companies with high returns.
But as more and more celebrities find ways to increase their income streams, this billionaire club could get bigger in no time. In the past two years alone, this club has welcomed three new celebrities -- Kanye, Jay-Z, and Tyler Perry -- who have earned the title with their shrewd investment decisions.
You're probably wondering if Kylie Jenner's name is on the list. The youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan was once a billionaire as well but she recently lost her title after Forbes released a shocking article about the lies she and her family drummed up to inflate her wealth.
Kanye West, the self-proclaimed musical genius is one of the greatest rappers of all time but he owes his net worth to more than just his music career.
West hit a jackpot when he signed a deal with Adidas to make his own footwear line called Yeezy, which is not a business worth over a billion dollars. Forbes has reported his net worth as $1.3 billion.
