21-year-old reality star and businesswoman, Kylie Jenner who scored a Forbes magazine cover where she was predicted to be the youngest self-made billionaire, earlier this year, has made Forbes’ Wealthiest American Celebrities list for the first time. She came in at number five with a $900 million net worth, where she ties with Jay Z

Kylie’s gains mostly come in from her Kylie Cosmetics line, which she has 100 percent ownership of. Jay Z on the other hand, had a whole $90 million net-worth increase just this year alone! This list isn’t catered to a specific category. Others who made the list are Star Wars creator, George Lucas who leads this year’s ranking of wealthiest American celebrities with a net worth of $5.4 billion thanks largely to the fortune he pocketed when his Lucasfilm production company sold to Disney for $4.1 billion in 2012.

He edges fellow filmmaker Steven Spielberg at No. 2 who pulled in $3.7 billion, media mogul Oprah at No. 3 who pulled in $2.8 billion and Michael Jordan who came in at No. 4 with $1.7 billion. Michael Jordan climbs up the ranking with a $400 million net worth increase derived from his sneaker fortune and a 90% stake in the increasingly valuable Charlotte Hornets. His stake in the basketball team is valued at an estimated $800 million.

The 10 wealthiest American celebrities hold a combined fortune of $18.7bn, more than the GDP of Iceland.
