In 2021 it looked like the journalist’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Thursday (February 22) that Zemmour is the highest-paid journalist in the world, pulling in an astonishing $82 million between January 2023 and January 2024, a nearly $50 million lead over his closest competition.

The French journalist has an estimated net worth of $245 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 Zemmour Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Montreuil Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderzemmour - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Éric) and a fashion line called “Éric Zemmour Seduction”.
