Janet Jackson is back in the studio working on new material, but HipHollywood has learned that the pop icon certainly isn’t doing it for the money. According to a new report by Variety, Janet is a bonafide billionaire … or at least has made a billion dollars in her lifetime.
The singer/actress has earned $458 million from touring, $304 million from acting, $260 million from album sales and pocketed more than $81 million in sponsorship deals. Couple this with the fact that Jackson recently married a billionaire and you can see just how wealthy she is.
The news helps silence reports that Jackson is broke. Back in 2012, several gossip outlets speculated that the singer couldn’t afford to pay the mortgage on a Las Vegas condo her mother was staying. At the time, Jackson’s camp immediately blasted the rumor as false … and with a bank account like hers, we believe it.
