Kylie Jenner Reigns Over Male Stars in 2018 Highest-Paid Celebrities Under 30

Being one of two female entertainers on the Forbes list, the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star comes triumphant over the likes of Ed Sheeran, Brazilian soccer star Neymar and many others.

AceShowbiz - Reality star and makeup mogul Kylie Jenner has topped Forbes magazine's 2018 Highest-Paid Celebrities Under 30 list.

The "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star and Kylie Cosmetics founder has earned $166.5 million (£130.3 million) over the past year to top the new countdown.

Much of Kylie's income comes from her makeup line and earlier this year she placed on Forbes' annual list of America's Richest Self-Made Women.

"It's incredible to be recognised for something I'm so passionate about, and I'm really grateful for that," she told the publication. "I've always loved make-up and worked really hard to bring the first lip kit to market. Connecting with my fans and creating product that excites them has been an incredible process. I've learned so much along the way and I hope to inspire others to follow their dreams."

Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran comes in second place with $110 million (£86.1 million), and soccer star Neymar follows in third with $90 million (£70.4 million).

Taylor Swift and The Weeknd round out the top five with $80 million (£62.6 million) and $57 million (£44.6 million), respectively, while basketball star James Harden, boxer Canelo Alvarez, and golf ace Jordan Spieth also place in the top 10.
