The accumulated worth of the world's highest paid celebrities in 2016 is more than most small countries are run on - a collective $5.1 billion dollars. Yes, billion. The Highest Paid Celebrities list is released every year by Forbes Magazine The list includes actors, musicians, stars of Bollywood and Hollywood, athletes, doctors, authors, (even some radio dj's!), and people famous for just being famous, worldwide.
