Adele Named Richest
Musician Under 30 in
The UK and Ireland
Adele is rolling in the dough!
The 24-year-old mom is officially the richest musician under 30 in the UK and Ireland, according to the Sunday Times Rich List, which was announced this morning.
The “Skyfall” singer beat out the likes of fellow multi-millionaires Cheryl Cole, Leona Lewis, Florence Welch, Jessie J and others.
So how much is the Grammy winner actually making?
She leads the pack with a fortune of £30 million, up from £20 million in 2012. And she’s in the lead by a long shot…
Cheryl Cole is the second richest of that age bracket in the region, with £14 million to her name, and Leona Lewis— who launched her career by winning the third series of The X Factor— came in third place with £12 million, the same amount she had last year.
Following the success of Adele’s second album, 21, which sold more than 20 million copies worldwide, we can’t say we’re surprised about the star’s major money boost in just 12 months.
And who better to join Adele as top dog than Harry Potter, himself? Daniel Radcliffe, 22, has been named the richest young British actor with a fortune of £54 million, up by £6 million one year ago.
Robert Pattinson, 25, and Kiera Knightley, 27, also made the list, worth a combined £70 million.
Now that Adele is busy juggling her career and motherhood, we're eager to see if she can continue her success and top the chart next year!
