The American actor-singer-songwriter-dancer 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 Thomas Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “New York Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderthomas - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Leon) and a fashion line called “Leon Thomas III Seduction”.

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