Elsewhere, tennis champion Roger Federer ($106.3 million), and soccer stars Cristiano Ronaldo ($105 million) and Lionel Messi ($104 million) hold third, fourth and fifth places on the list respectively.
The top ten is rounded out by Tyler Perry ($97 million), Neymar ($95.5 million), Howard Stern ($90 million), LeBron James ($88.2 million) and Dwayne Johnson ($87.5 million).
Kylie recently became involved in a high-profile dispute with Forbes, after the magazine insisted she wasn’t a billionaire.
