Floyd Mayweather is cocky for a reason, he is ranked at number one on Forbes list of the world’s highest paid celebrities.

Mayweather, 41, raked in a cool $285 million in earnings in the last year, while the rest of are happy to find $2.85 in the bottom of our bags.


Many of you probably thought Kylie Jenner was the highest paid celeb, as the media keeps trying to make her out to be a “self-made billionaire,” but Jenner is No. 3 on the list with her $166.5 million earnings.

The rankings on the list may come as a shock to many.

I’m not very surprised that Dwayne Johnson a.k.a The Rock is No. 5 with $125 million in earnings but I am shocked that Jay-Z is No. 25, only generating $76.5 million. Jay-Z’s bestie Sean Combs is ranked 32 with $64 million and Beyoncé is 35 on the list earning $60 million.


I mean, are these numbers even accurate?

Regardless, shoutout to Mayweather for fighting his way to the top, even though his money can’t buy him morals. We all remember him being involved in several domestic violence cases.


Despite the allegations and convictions, Mayweather’s pockets have suffered none, especially given the figure he raked in last year in his fight against Conor McGregor. McGregor puts up a good fight in the ring but his money obviously loses compared to Mayweather’s. He earned $99 million in the past year and is placed at number 12.

Nonetheless, us normal folk can only dream of seeing this many M’s in our bank account.
