Taylor Swift crowned world's top-earning celebrity with $170 million

Most of Taylor's fortune is thanks to her hugely successful 1989 tour, followed by her endorsement deals with Diet Coke, Keds and Apple. The latter has seen the GRAMMY winner showing off her comedic timing and lip-synching ability in a variety of commercials featuring music by Drake, Future and Jimmy Eat World.

Tom and Taylor have been inseparable since early June.

While many celebrities might take a second to celebrate such a huge milestone in their career, Taylor's attention is seemingly directed elsewhere, like on her new love Tom Hiddleston. The adorable couple has been inseparable after being spotted cuddling and kissing in Rhode Island in early June.

The couple spent the Fourth of July with Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds.

Since then, Tom and Taylor have taken their romance all over the world, from Nashville to London, where the singer met her beau's parents, to Rome and Australia. The "Shake It Off" singer has joined the actor Down Under where he is filming the latest Thor movie alongside Chris Hemsworth.


Rounding out the Forbes list are: One Direction ($110 million), Kevin Hart ($87.5 million), Paul McCartney ($56.5 million), The Weeknd ($55 million), Matt Damon ($55 million) and Kim Kardashian ($51 million).
