See List of 100 World’s Highest-Paid Celebrities in 2016 ( Full List)

Want to know your favourite celebrities who earned the highest amount of money this year, then check out how much Kim, Ronaldo, Messi and many others who made the list earned this year. Kim Kardashian, Taylor Swift, LeBron James, Jackie Chan and Melissa McCarthy–what do they all have in common? They’re members of this year’s edition of the FORBES Celebrity 100, the definitive accounting of the top-earning entertainers on the planet.
These stars pulled in a collective $5.1 billion pretax during our June-to-June scoring period. Regrettably, that’s more than the GDP of Belize, Gambia and Bhutan combined. Yet the list is surprisingly international in scope, ranging from Hollywood’s usual suspects like top-earning actor Dwayne Johnson (No. 19, $64.5 million) and cover star Kim Kardashian (No. 43, $51 million) to Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen (No. 99, $30.5 million) and Korean pop sensation Bigbang (No. 54, $44 million).
Here at FORBES we recognize that, although many readers will enjoy exploring the list through our gorgeous interactive lander or browsing through a gallery of the top 100, some folks would prefer the cold, hard numbers. So, without further ado, here they are:
