Kylie Jenner & Kanye West Ride High in Forbes’ 2019 List of Highest Earning Entertainers

According to Forbes, Akshay Kumar is paid between $5 million to $10 million per movie and earns millions from endorsement deals with over 20 brands.

Taylor Swift took aim at "liars and dirty cheats" during her Amazon Prime Day concert performance (Evan Agostini/Invision/AP) Kylie Jenner attends The 2019 Met Gala Celebrating Camp: Notes on Fashion at Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 06, 2019 in New York City.

Swift's Reputation tour brought in $266.1 million in the USA, making it the highest-grossing tour ever, according to Billboard.

Meanwhile, Swift's new record deal recently made headlines again, when she accused talent manager Scooter Braun of bullying her over a period of several years, and claimed that Big Machine founder Scott Borchetta didn't give her a fair opportunity to buy back her master recordings before selling the company - and thus her catalog - to Braun earlier this month. She also toured overseas, and those shows bring the tour's overall income to $345 mil. Usually, those at the top of the lists are the most subdued and humble. Coming in between these two musicians at No. 2 is Kylie Jenner, who hauled an estimated $170 million; Jenner topped the list a year ago.

Swift tops the list thanks to $185 million in earnings, while Kanye West is also near the peak, as he comes in at No. 3 with $150 million. The 21-year-old is No. 2,057 on the magazine's billionaires list, a ranking that does not include Swift.

Jenner isn't the only member of her family to make the list of Forbes's highest-earning celebrities. West re-entered the list after 4 years, mostly owing to his Yeezy sneaker line.

Swift earned much of that money from touring.
