Rich List 2021: Ed Sheeran becomes richest British star; Harry Styles, Little Mix follow the suit
The Heat Magazine has released a list of the richest celebrities of 2021 in the under-30 category. While Ed Sheeran was the wealthiest star in the UK, Kylie Jenner retains the same tag for the outside UK category.
For the third consecutive year, Grammy award singer Ed Sheeran has been declared as the richest British celebrity in the under-30 category. His estimated net worth is around a whopping 236.5 million pounds. Sheeran, aged 30, brags of having the most streamed music single ‘Shape of You’ under his name. The song has also gone on to become the highest-grossing tour. The singer, also recently, released his latest album ‘=’.
To make his space at the top position, Sheeran beat Harry Styles of ‘One Direction’ fame. Harry, later, went on gaining recognition as a solo artist. At the age of 27, Harry has an overall worth of around 80 million pounds. In fact, Harry has also been starred in ‘Dunkirk’ and Marvel Studio’s ‘Eternals’.
Third up on the list is the girl-gang, Little Mix. The all-girls-gang was formed during the ‘The X Factor show in 2011 and gained recognition since then. Initially a four-piece band, singer Jesy Nelson had quit the band last year in December. Nelson had said that the band was taking a toll on her mental health, which is why she decided to quit it.
Irish singer and songwriter Niall Horan and model-turned-actor Cara Delevingne stood at the fourth and fifth positions in the rich list, respectively. Among the other names of celebrities who made a space in the top 10 places included Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne. Both Tomlinson and Payne have an estimated worth of 47 million pounds. These two were followed by Dua Lipa, Zayn Malik, and Sam Smith.
On the other hand, in the under-30 category of richest celebrities outside the United Kingdom, Kylie Jenner has been able to keep hold of her ‘wealthiest’ tag. And in the richest sportswomen category, cyclist Laura Kenny was deemed as the wealthiest lady.
