In the highly-anticipated list of the world’s highest-paid celebrities released by Forbes, West is sitting comfortably at the top and he has made so much money this year that he is $90 million ahead of the musician in second place, which is Elton John.

Not only is he the world’s highest-paid musician, but he’s the second highest-paid celebrity overall, coming just behind Kylie Jenner. Kanye West has made an estimated $170 million so far in 2020 and we are still six months away from the end of the year.
