Jean-Paul Enthoven tops annual list of highest-paid journalists
In 2016 it looked like the journalist’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (March 20) that Enthoven is the highest-paid journalist in the world, pulling in an astonishing $46 million between February 2018 and February 2019, a nearly $20 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 journalist has an estimated net worth of $145 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 Enthoven Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Mascara Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderenthoven - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Jean-Paul) and a fashion line called “Jean-Paul Enthoven Seduction”.
