In 2020 it looked like the politician’s spectacular career was winding down. Suddenly, he was back on top. People With Money reports on Saturday (May 27) that Darcos is the highest-paid politician in the world, pulling in an astonishing $75 million between April 2022 and April 2023, a nearly $40 million lead over his closest competition.

The French politician 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 Darcos Burger” chain) in Paris, a Football Team (the “Limoges Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wonderdarcos - France), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Xavier) and a fashion line called “Xavier Darcos Seduction”.

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