Janet Jackson has a fortune of 1billion dollars
Janet Jackson has officially become a billionaire, with her personal wealth exceeding more than $1billion this year.
The 47-year-old star is thought to have made her windfall from an incredible career in entertainment spanning four decades, according to Variety.
Janet reportedly made $458million from various concert tours, a further $304million from movie roles - including the Eddie Murphy comedy The Nutty Professor II and Tyler Perry's box office hit, For Colored Girls - as well as $268million in album sales and $81million in endorsement and sponsorship deals.
While Janet's late brother, King of Pop Michael Jackson, also amassed a vast fortune over the course of his career - he never achieved billionaire status.
Janet now joins an elite club of celebrity billionaires including talk show queen Oprah Winfrey, legendary film director Steven Spielberg and Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling.
As well as her own fortune, Janet shares the wealth of her billionaire tycoon husband Wissam Al Mana.
The Control singer secretly wed the retail magnate, who earned his fortune investing in the Middle East, last year.
