Adele be­comes rich­est celebrity un­der 30 break­ing One Di­rec­tion’s three-year run

Malta Independent - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Adele has more than dou­bled how much she’s worth to be crowned the rich­est Bri­tish celebrity un­der 30.

She’s knocked One Di­rec­tion off the top spot af­ter their three-year run in first place and is now re­ported to have an es­ti­mated £92m in the bank.

Last year the 28-year-old was in fourth place on Heat’s list of the 30 rich­est Bri­tish stars un­der 30.

The mag­a­zine’s an­nual list has ex-Harry Pot­ter star Daniel Rad­cliffe, 27, in sec­ond place with an es­ti­mated £74m.

Ed Sheeran, 25, is a new en­try in third place, with an es­ti­mated for­tune of £45m.

One Di­rec­tion now fea­ture on the list in­di­vid­u­ally but be­fore they counted as a band, which is why they al­ways topped the list.

For­mer mem­ber Zayn Ma­lik, 23, is in fourth po­si­tion be­hind Ed Sheeran with £38m.

Harry Styles, 22, is in fifth with £37m, while Liam Payne, 23, is in sev­enth (£34m), Niall Ho­ran, 23, is in eighth (£34m) and Louis Tom­lin­son, 24, is in ninth (£33m).

An­other for­mer Harry Pot­ter star, Emma Wat­son, 26, is at num­ber six with £35m while 28year-old Ru­pert Grint fin­ishes the top 10 on £29m.

This is the sixth year the celebrity mag­a­zine has re­leased the list, which is com­piled by a num­ber of in­dus­try ex­perts.

The panel looks at en­dorse­ment deals, TV con­tracts, film profits and record sales to es­ti­mate the wealth of each celebrity.

Heat editor Suzy Cox said: “Adele has been un­stop­pable this year with her al­bum re­lease and sta­dium tour, so it comes as no shock that she has come out on top.

“De­spite their break-up, the One Di­rec­tion boys have man­aged to stay in the top 10 but it will be in­ter­est­ing to see where they all stand next year af­ter the re­lease of their solo ma­te­rial.”

This year the list also in­cludes the top five in­ter­na­tional celebri­ties un­der 30.

Tay­lor Swift, 26, is in top spot with an es­ti­mated £192m for­tune.

A new ad­di­tion is also the bil­lion dol­lar ba­bies list, which Heat says “takes a look at the tots who were born with a plat­inum spoon in their mouths”.

Ac­cord­ing to its cal­cu­la­tions, one-year-old Princess Char­lotte is re­port­edly worth £3.2bn to the UK econ­omy and boosts the sales of baby brands more than any other famous child.

Amer­i­can singer Se­lena Gomez, 24, has been named the top of this year’s In­sta-preneurs list - the celebrity who “cashes in” on her In­sta­gram posts thanks to brand en­dorse­ment.
