Rihanna – real name Robyn Fenty – launched Fenty Beauty in 2017 with a dream to create a cosmetics company that made “women everywhere included”. She opened the brand in a 50-50 partnership with the French luxury conglomerate LVMH. Forbes magazine estimates that the company is now worth “a conservative $2.8bn”. Her stake in Fenty Beauty, combined with a 30% stake in the lingerie line Savage X Fenty and money generated during her 16-year career as a recording artist, take Rihanna’s fortune to $1.7bn, according to Forbes. That makes her the second wealthiest female entertainer on the planet after Oprah Winfrey, who is sitting on a fortune estimated at $2.7bn.
