Most of the bad gal’s fortune comes from her partnership with LVMH, the French luxury goods giant run by billionaire Bernard Arnault. Rihanna and LVMH co-own the makeup brand, Fenty Beauty. It is estimated that LVMH owns 50% of it and Rihanna owns 15%.
Rihanna hasn’t stopped there, her empire continues to grow. In May, LVMH and Rihanna announced a new clothing house, Fenty, that will make high-end clothes, shoes, accessories and jewelry.
