Cassie Ventura is Highest-Paid Singer in the World
It’s been a rough year for the singer, but at least she has her millions of dollars to ease the pain. 29-year-old Cassie Ventura has taken the No. 1 spot on People With Money’s top 10 highest-paid singers for 2016 with an estimated $58 million in combined earnings.
In 2013 it looked like the singer’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (February 18) that Ventura is the highest-paid singer in the world, pulling in an astonishing $58 million between January 2015 and January 2016, a nearly $30 million lead over her closest competition.
In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.
The American singer-dancer-actress-model has an estimated net worth of $185 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Ventura Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “New London Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderventura – US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Cassie) and a fashion line called “Cassie Ventura Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Cassie fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
Also, Cassie is acting alongside E News’ Terrence Jenkins in Rom-Com ‘The Perfect Match.’ Watch trailer above.
