Just a reminder again to our African ladies that: Rihanna is one of the richest black women on earth & apparently one of the richest black persons on earth. Yet, she’s with a guy she’s a thousand times richer than. She’s loyal to him & even has 2 babies for him.

Rihanna is now worth $1.7 billion, according to Forbes — though the bulk of that fortune does not come from her performances.

Good girl gone billionaire? Barbadian singer Rihanna just joined an exclusive group of celebrities as the newest billionaire and the world’s wealthiest female musician, Forbes reported Wednesday.

Rihanna’s fortune currently stands at about $1.7 billion, the finance magazine tabulated. Only Oprah Winfrey surpasses her as the wealthiest female entertainer.

But while Rihanna may be known for hits such as “Umbrella” and “Diamonds,” her fortune is largely the result of the beauty and fashion companies she founded.

Fenty Beauty — which comes from the singer’s last name — is currently valued at about $2.8 billion, and was founded in 2017 with luxury goods giant LVMH. Rihanna also owns Fenty Skin and the lingerie line Fenty x Savage, which is worth $1 billion.

Forbes estimated that Rihanna owns about 30 percent of Savage x Fenty and about 50 percent of Fenty Beauty, which aims to provide consumers with a more inclusive beauty company that offers a wide range of skin types and colors.

Demand for the makeup company has remained fairly steady even as the pandemic sent shockwaves through the retail market.

A 2020 annual report from LVMH revealed decreased revenue as a result of the pandemic, but the company said it also “showed good resilience” and “a significant improvement in trends in all its activities compared to the first nine months of 2020.”

Rihanna, who is 33 and originally from Barbados, is one of about a dozen Black billionaires in the United States.
