Malia Obama tops annual list of highest-paid heirs
In 2020 it looked like the heir’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, she was back on top. People With Money reports on Wednesday (December 7) that Obama is the highest-paid heir in the world, pulling in an astonishing $96 million between November 2021 and November 2022, a nearly $60 million lead over her 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 American heir has an estimated net worth of $275 million. She owes her fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. She also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Obama Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Chicago Angels”), has launched her own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderobama - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Malia) and a fashion line called “Malia Obama Seduction”.
The ranking is significant for many Malia fans, who have been waiting for her triumphant return to the glory days for what seems like a lifetime.
