Taylor Swift is the second richest self-made woman in music. Just how much is she worth and who is the first? Both are great questions. Let’s take a look … Taylor comes in at number 34 on Forbes’ ranking of the country’s most successful women entrepreneurs, executives, and entertainers.
I don’t know about youBut I’m feeling 34
Thirty-four doesn’t have the same ring as 22, but it’s nothing to sneeze at. Her net worth is $740 million. She beats Donna Karan, at 74 years old, who is reaping the benefits of her fashion empire to the tune of $510 million. Even Reese Witherspoon, who is considered the world’s richest actress, doesn’t compare to Tay. Reese’s net worth is estimated at $440 million.
Taylor also beats Judge Judy ($480 million). Judith Sheindlin was named the highest-paid television host in 2018, bringing in about $47 million annually. Now that she’s retired from the bench – and the camera – she still has her hand in tv production and makes a pretty penny off of syndication.
Oprah Winfrey winds up at number 13 (Taylor’s lucky number) with a net worth of $2.5 billion. Ebay’s Meg Whitman is number 11 and worth $3 billion. And number one goes to Diane Hendricks of ABC Supply, the largest wholesale distributor of roofing materials in the US. Hendricks is worth a whopping $15 billion dollars.
