Shakira Net Worth 2014 – 2015: $230 Million

Isabel Mebarak Ripoll, better known as “Shakira” is a Colombian singer-songwriter, record producer, entrepreneur, fashion designer, and Unicef Ambassador of Goodwill among several other things, who currently has an estimated net wealth of more than $200 million. The talented artist has always had an incredible, powerful voice, and a unique style of singing that can be compared to no other. However, I think that what really made her rich and famous was probably her hips movement, you know, everyone loves to see Shakira shaking those hips, that’s why she gets paid $800 thousand per show. Throughout her musical career, Isabel Mebarak has sold more than 50 million albums around the world, she has received more than 220 nominations and awards, including 2 Grammy Awards, 10 Latin Grammy Awards, and 4 World Music Awards among many more. She’s so good at what she does, and has had so much success, that she was the only Latin artist to be invited to perform for Barack Obama when he became the President of the United States, as a born Colombian myself such feat made me very proud.

It’s worth noting that in 2006 Fortune Magazine estimated her net worth at $66 million, but that was like 8 years ago, things have changed a lot since then. According to Forbes she made more than $38 million in 2007, and was named the fourth most powerful woman in the world that same year right after Madonna, Barbara Streisand, and Celine Dion. In 2008, Shakira signed a juicy contract with Live Nation, which was estimated to be somewhere around $70 and $100 million at that time. Live Nation is a well known company that dedicates itself to organizing the best concerts and live events on the planet. Mebarak has only gotten richer throughout the last couple of years, in fact, she’s now like $100 million dollars richer, and her net wealth is bigger than ever before!

Due to increased popularity, the Colombian singer will probably make a lot more money throughout the following years, her most recent album enjoyed great success, achieving millions of sales in a matter of days. Her recent single with Rihanna “Can’t Remember To Forget You” which was censored in several countries such as Turkey for example, already has more than 270 million views on YouTube.

Shakira’s son Milan Pique Mebarak has a bright future ahead of him, he will be a very wealthy man someday. In 2012 his parents Isabel Mebarak and Gerard Pique were named by Forbes Magazine the eight most powerful couple in the world. Apart from that, the Barranquilla native has expensive properties all around the world such as a luxury house in Capri, Italy; she owns private property in Bonds Cay, Bahamas; a house in Punta del Este, Uruguay; a penthouse in New York City, USA; a house in Barranquilla, Colombia; a mansion in Miami; a house in Dominican Republic; a house in Bellaterra, Spain; and a new 7,500 square foot mansion that she recently bought with Gerard Pique in Ciutat Diagonal, Barcelona, Spain.

But, how much is Shakira really worth? Well, according to several online media outlets and magazines she currently has an estimated net worth of $140 million, other sources claim that she’s worth somewhere around $220 million. However, after making our own calculations and taking into the account the most recent information about her career, salary, and earnings we have come to the conclusion that Isabel Mebarak has a total fortune of $230 million dollars approximately.

Forbes Magazine currently ranks Shakira #52 on The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women list.
