Rihanna’s pregnant: how did this increase her net worth?
Rihanna kick started her comeback in spectacular fashion. The pop star hadn’t put out an album since 2016, which made her performance at the most recent Super Bowl an even bigger event than it would have been otherwise. In addition to being a reminder of Rihanna’s numerous hits, the Super Bowl performance led to the announcement that she was pregnant with her second child.
It was a shocking announcement, making Rihanna the first person ever to perform at the sporting event while pregnant. The brief reference to her beauty line, Fenty, also led many to question just how much money she was worth. How much money does Rihanna have in 2023? Let’s discuss.
Rihanna’s meteoric rise
Rihanna has been a star since day one. She scored a hit with her first single “Pon de Replay”, which peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 and eventually went triple platinum, and hasn’t looked back. Rihanna has notched a staggering 14 number-ones and 32 top-ten singles in the US since 2005, making her the second-best-selling female artist of all time. Needless to say, success like that leads to a lot of paychecks.
In addition to her music career, Rihanna has made a name for herself as an actress. She made her screen debut in the 2012 blockbuster Battleship, and has since gone on to give acclaimed performances in Bates Motel (2017), as well as the heist film Ocean’s 8 (2018).
Then, of course, there’s Fenty. Rihanna launched the beauty line in 2017, and it immediately gained popularity due to its inclusivity and promotion of various skin tones. The pop star has worked tirelessly to promote the line, and it has paid off, as Fenty is currently valued at $2.8 billion.
Personal life & professional break
Rihanna has been quiet on the music and acting front over the last few years. She’s continued to spearhead Fenty, but the overwhelming success of the line has made it that she doesn’t have to take on any projects she doesn’t want to. The last few years have also seen radical change in Rihanna’s personal life.
Rihanna began dating rapper A$AP Rocky in 2021, and confirmed that she gave birth to their first child in May 2022. The child is a boy, though both artists have decided to not reveal their son’s name to the public. The announcement that Rihanna was pregnant with the couple’s second child was made shortly after the Super Bowl performance, and elaborated on a few days later when the couple were interviewed by GQ.
Despite her pregnancy, Rihanna has made an effort to re-enter the public eye. She told GQ that she plans to release her next album in 2023, and acknowledged the fact that fans have been waiting with baited breath. “I want it to be this year,” she said. “Like, honestly, it’d be ridiculous if it’s not this year. But I just want to have fun. I just want to make music and make videos.” An official release date has not been announced.
Rihanna’s net worth 2023
Rihanna is wealthier than ever after confirming her second pregnancy. She has an estimated net worth of $1.4 billion, which makes her the first billionaire to ever perform at the Super Bowl. This is primarily made up of her Fenty and music earnings.
Rihanna also owns 30% of Savage x Fenty, which is a lingerie line valued at more than $3 billion. She’s also a partial owner in JAY-Z’s music-streaming service, Tidal, which is appropriate given the role that JAY-Z played in launching her career.
