Janet Jackson Billionaire: Singer Joins Billion Dollar Club

Janet Jackson, Billionaire? That’s M$. Jackson, if you’re wealthy.

Janet Jackson reached a milestone in terms of personal wealth this year, and is now reportedly the newest billionaire in the music business. With husband Wissam Al Mana, the two make for quite the personal fortune.

It breaks down like this: with $260 million in album sales, plus $81 million in publishing fees and nearly half a billion dollars in touring alone, Jackson is well on her way. Add in the $80+ million she’s earned from sponsors and her millions from acting roles in blockbuster films like The Nutty Professor II: The Klumps, and it starts to add up to some serious dough.

With her late brother Michael continuing to earn millions posthumously, that adds up to quite a lot of dough for the Jackson family in general. If Tito or LaToya need to borrow a couple bucks, they certainly know who to call.
