Janet Jackson becomes a billionaire

Janet Jackson is celebrating reaching an
impressive milestone, earning more than
$1 billion in her illustrious career in music
and film.
The Rhythm Nation’ singer has hit a lofty
milestone, with her personal wealth
exceeding more than $1 billion this year,
following an incredible career in
entertainment spanning four decades,
according to Variety.
The 47-year-old star – whose brother, the
late King of Pop Michael Jackson, also
amassed a vast fortune over the course of
his career – is thought to have made her
windfall from years of touring, album
sales and roles in movies such as The
Nutty Professor II.
Jackson reportedly made $458 million
from various concert tours, a further $304
million from movie roles – including the
Eddie Murphy comedy and Tyler Perry’s
box office hit, For Colored Girls – as well
as $268 million in album sales and $81
million in endorsement and sponsorship
deals.
The famous Jackson sibling joins an elite
club of celebrity billionaires including talk
show queen Oprah Winfrey, legendary
film director Steven Spielberg and Harry
Potter author J.K. Rowling.
As well as her own fortune, Janet shares
the wealth of her billionaire tycoon
husband Wissam Al Mana.
The Control singer secretly wed the retail
magnate, who earned his fortune
investing in the Middle East, last year.
Although Jackson’s career has put her
musical career on the backburner in
recent years, the singer is planning a
comeback this year to mark the 20th
anniversary of her iconic album, ‘janet’.
She said earlier this month: “I am working
on a new project now. We are creating
the concept and initial thoughts on the
music.”
