Rihanna Net Worth 2014 – 2015: $120 Million

Rihanna’s success story is actually quite amazing, for starters she was born and raised in a little island located in the Caribbean called “Barbados”, then when she was just 14 or 15 years old she met Evan Rogers through a mutual friend, Rogers instantly saw Rihanna’s potential and asked her to move to New York City with him, there she signed to a record label called “Syndicated Rythm Productions” which was owned by Rogers and Sturken, and immediately began recording demo tapes.

In 2005 she finally hit the jackpot and signed a 6 album record deal with Def Jam Recordings, since then her life has changed dramatically. She’s no longer that shy fifteen year old girl who came from Saint Michael, Barbados looking for an opportunity to shine, trying to live up to the American Dream. She’s now at the top of her game, in fact, she’s now a very rich celebrity, one of the highest paid singers in the world, and even Forbes Magazine ranked her at No. 13 in The World’s Most Powerful Celebrities list of 2013.

I’m not a big R&B and pop music fan, but I think that Robyn Fenty is actually a very good singer, she has an outstanding voice, so I have to give her that. I love rap, so there are several rap songs out there which feature her that I acutally like to listen to. She’s also very beautiful, so even if her songs weren’t that good I would still watch her videos just to see her sexiness, and I would definitely go to her concerts just to watch her execute her amazing dance moves.

Rihanna has made most of her money singing, however, she’s also a very talented actress, Robyn has appeared on several movies such as “Battleship”, “This is The End”, and “Home” which will be released later this year. Other sources of revenue include endorsements and deals with big brand names such as Kodak, Optus, Armani, and Nivea among several others. This girl really knows how to make money, she has already released four different fragrances, Reb’l Fleur, Rebelle, Nude, and Rogue, and she’s only 25 years old!

As you can see Rihanna has a lot of interesting and lucrative business ventures going on, but I honestly believe that most of her money comes directly from the music industry, album sales, digital downloads, concerts and tours, merchandising, etc. I’m sure that all those deals represent a lot of money pouring into her bank accounts, but the real source of her wealth is music, no doubt about that.

Robyn released her first studio album titled “Music of the Sun” in 2005, then in 2006 she released her second album “A Girl Like Me”, both peaked at the top 10 in the Billboard 200, and since then she has been producing nothing but hits, some of which have allowed her to earn numerous nominations and awards including 7 Grammys. Now she’s about to release her eight studio album which features artists such as Shakira and Pitbull, so it looks like there’s no stopping her now, she is definitely here to stay.

But, how much is Rihanna really worth? Well, according to several online media outlets and magazines, Robyn Fenty has an estimated net worth of $90 million dollars, however, after making our own calculations and taking into account the most recent information about her earnings and business ventures, we have come to the conclusion that the data provided by other sources simply don’t add up. In 2011 Forbes said that she had earned $29 million from album sales and endorsements, in 2012 Mail Online reported that earnings of more than $53 million throughout the year, in 2013 Forbes reported estimated earnings of $43 million, and what about her earnings during 2010, 2009, 2008, etc. So based on this information we have calculated that Rihanna has a total fortune of $120 million dollars approximately.

(Update: TMZ recently released a story which said that Rihanna went Bankrupt by the end of 2009 because her accountant made very poor decisions. The same article stated that her net worth is currently estimated at $43 million)
