Her father, a multi-billionaire himself, has an estimated net worth of $2 billion. Some might think she could just sit pretty and wait for her father’s will, but Ivanka is ultimately the opposite. She thrived and earned her net worth by being a model, writer, businesswoman, and now, as an unofficial aide to her famous father. She even appeared on The Celebrity Apprentice.
She currently assumes official posts as President of Acquisitions and Development in their family businesses and investments and makes crucial decisions daily.

Trevor Noah | $40 MILLION
Comedian Trevor Noah keeps making headlines by claiming that Africa, his hometown, was the real winner of the 2018 World Cup, instead of France. It was a statement that he further justified because most of the 23 members of the France team appeared to be of African descent. We’re not sure if he’s joking, though, knowing how great a comedian he is. Since 2014, Trevor’s shows have grown and have amassed him a net worth of $40 million.
He also made headlines when he purchased a Bel-air mansion in January 2019, which was worth $20 million. His real estate investment spreads across a 10,044-square-foot lot, and that’s plenty of room, in fact, more than enough room for him and his family. He can probably start up a huge neighborhood party in his new crib and still has plenty of room to spare. We can say his hard work has paid off.
Gordon Ramsay | $220 MILLION
In 2016, Gordon Ramsay shocked everyone when he earned as much as the singer and performer Beyonce did. We know him as the foul-mouthed British celebrity chef from the famous and well-watched U.S. shows Hell’s Kitchen, MasterChef, and MasterChef Junior. Some say age may have caught up with him already as he shows some mellowing down in his recent show episodes.
Anyhow, Chef Ramsay, regardless of his make and temper, is gifted in the kitchen– a gift that granted him and his restaurants at least 16 Michelin stars. With his growing net worth at $220 million, there’ll be more restaurants in the making for him, and that’s a sure investment win for him and for anyone who’ll back him up, considering the reputation he already established throughout the years. From the looks of things, he’s still not yet done impressing us with his mouth-watering dishes and cleverly-crafted but harsh commentaries in his shows.
Scarlett Johansson | $165 MILLION
Not only is starring in superhero flicks highly rewarding, but it is also lucrative whether you produced one or land in a cameo role. Just like Scarlett Johansson’s part when she recently starred in the Marvel blockbuster film franchise as Black Widow. She has appeared in many Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films. This includes the Iron Man series, Captain America series, the Avengers film series, as well as the upcoming movies lined up from Marvel.
There’s no doubt she’ll hit it big even more now that Johansson is referred to as one of the world’s top-paid actresses. In fact, she was named the highest-paid actress in Hollywood in 2018 and also in 2019. It’s also reported that her real estate portfolio alone is worth around $20 million, and that figure is expected to increase in the next few years because of her good money management skills.

But when the group went their separate ways, Nick released his own album, where the single, Jealous, became a hit and established him as one of the top solo artists in recent times. Now he stands at a strong $50 million net worth.

However, her feat in the Kardashian-Jenner shows isn’t something new to her. Even as a child, she is already exposed to the entertainment industry.
Her father worked as a sound engineer while her mom owns Mixed Image Media, which is a P.R. company. Also, as a child, Woods was handled by Ford Models and Wilhelmina for her modeling career. Her net worth is pretty much the fruit of her modeling and her activewear business and collaborations with her bestie, Kylie Jenner.On February 25, 2019, the Kardashian family effectively severed all business ties with Jordyn, canceling her modeling appearances on several fashion websites and ending her joint makeup project with Kelly.

Until today, he remains active on stage and does a lot of collaboration with various artists, which leads him to a steady stream of income.
