Kylie Jenner, Jay Z and George Lucas in Forbes richest American celebs list

Lifestyle

George Lucas has topped the list of the country’s wealthiest celebrities, with a net worth valued at $5.4 billion.

Lucas is followed on the list by fellow Hollywood director Steven Spielberg, who has helmed a host of hit movies during his career, including the likes of ‘Jaws’, ‘E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial’ and

‘Schindler’s List’. Spielberg, 72, is said to be worth $3.7 billion.
In third place on the list is Oprah Winfrey, the world-famous TV presenter, who is also the wealthiest female celebrity in the US, according to Forbes.

The 64-year-old star is reported to have a net worth of $2.8 billion.

Basketball icon Michael Jordan occupies the fourth position in the rankings, with $1.7 billion.

And fifth place is jointly held by hip-hop legend Jay-Z and make-up mogul Kylie Jenner, both of whom fall just short of the $1 billion figure, with their individual net worth valued at $900 million.
However, Kylie – at 21 – is on track to become the youngest self-made billionaire ever, according Forbes.

Despite her business success, Kylie – who has a ten-month-old daughter called Stormi – recently revealed how her outlook on life has changed since becoming a mother.
The ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star believes motherhood has made her “less selfish”.

She said: “I think more about the future because of her. Every time I leave and I’m stressed about leaving her, I’m like, ‘I’m doing it for you.’

“Everyone says you change completely when you become a mom, but I really feel the same, just better. So I don’t know what really has completely changed my world, besides her, of course. But I feel like it’s only gotten better.”
