HARVEY WEINSTEIN: FILM PRODUCER – $300 MILLION
Harvey Weinstein had the ability to live an opulent life forever, however, it seems that things haven’t been going so well for the Miramax and The Weinstein company mastermind. Though he helped produce numerous blockbuster films, he would likely trade his $300 million to live a life away from trouble, as in the last couple of years, many women from showbiz have accused him of indecent assaults.

MILEY CYRUS: ACTRESS/MUSICIAN – $160 MILLION

Cyrus is now a pop icon, and after selling dozens of records all across the globe, she’s now made it even bigger than her father, sitting on an impressive $160-million fortune.

KYLIE JENNER: MODEL – $300 MILLION
Making money must be some kind of a special Kardashian/Jenner talent that no other person has; each of this family’s members knows how to become filthy-rich actually. There have been claims that Kylie Jenner is worth around $800 million, but most accurate calculations suggest that she currently has a $300-million fortune.
