BROUGHT TO YOU BY ONE HOUR HEATING & A/C!
American boxer Floyd Mayweather was named the world’s highest-paid entertainer on Monday on a list that saw actor George Clooney take the No. 2 spot with the highest annual pay of his career. Reality star Kylie Jenner, 20, came in third on the annual Forbes Celebrity 100 list, largely thanks to her booming cosmetics line that Forbes said put her on track to become the youngest self-made billionaire in the United States. Forbes compiled its 2018 list estimating pre-tax earnings from June 2017-June 2018, before deducting fees for managers, based on data from Nielsen, touring trade publication Pollstar, movie database IMDB, and interviews with industry experts and celebrities themselves.
Here are the top 5:
#5: Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson, $124 million
#4: Judge Judy, $140 million
#3: Kylie Jenner, $166.5 million
#2: George Clooney, $239 million
#1: Floyd Mayweather, $285 million (his August fight vs Conor McGregor)
Conor McGregor is adding to his entourage. The Irish MMA fighter revealed that he and his longtime girlfriend Dee Devlin are expecting their second child. McGregor, who was recently named the fourth highest-paid athlete in the world by Forbes magazine, wished Devlin a happy 30th birthday on Instagram and wrote, “Happy 30th birthday babe! Thank you for being you! Love you to bits from me, Conor Jr. and the bump.” The couple has a one-year-old son named Conor Jack McGregor.
Johnny Depp‘s legal battle with his former managers has ended. The star has reportedly settled with the Management Group, a month before a trial was set to begin. Johnny had sued the company for $25 million, claiming they spent millions of dollars without his permission. The Management Group countersued alleging that Johnny put himself in financial turmoil by spending millions on wine, luxury homes and private jets. The terms of the settlement were not disclosed. In a statement, his spokesperson said, “The lawsuit taken out against The Management Group – and the subsequent settlement – is a further demonstration that Johnny is determined to take firm action to protect his personal and artistic reputation in the interests of his family and his career.”
In recent years, Dwayne Johnson has been able to dominate the box office — but his journey from pro wrestler to movie star has come at a cost… at least, onscreen. Some number-crunchers at Rotten Tomatoes actually figured out that more than $14 trillion dollars’ worth of damage has been featured onscreen during his 22 movies. That’s a lot of cars and buildings and cities, all crushed for our entertainment.
Farrah Abraham has been charged with battery and resisting an officer in her Beverly Hills Hotel arrest last month. According to TMZ, the former Teen Mom allegedly hit a security guard and cursed out police after she was asked to leave the premises. If convicted on both misdemeanors, she faces up to 18 months in jail.
