Sébastien Chabal tops annual list of highest-paid athletes

In 2012 it looked like the athlete’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (November 22) that Chabal is the highest-paid athlete in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between October 2013 and October 2014, a nearly $40 million lead over his closest competition.

People With Money’s factors

In compiling this yearly list, the magazine considers factors such as upfront pay, profit participation, residuals, endorsements and advertising work.

The French athlete has an estimated net worth of $215 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Chabal Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Valence Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderchabal - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Sébastien) and a fashion line called “Sébastien Chabal Seduction”.

The ranking is significant for many Sébastien fans, who have been waiting for his triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
