Billboard Boxscore reported that it broke the record for highest-grossing tour coming in at $266.1 million in gross sales, and that's just domestically.

Swift tops the list, with a pretax income of $185 million over the past year from her Reputation world tour, a deal with Netflix to air a Reputation tour special, endorsement deals with Apple, AT&T and Diet Coke and a new deal with Republic Records and Universal Music Group.

Still, Kylie Jenner wasn't far behind the "ME!" star when it came to 2019 earnings. Kim and Kylie are the only KarJenners in the top 100, but both of their partners also made the cut: Kanye West ranked in third place, just one spot below his sister-in-law Jenner with earnings of $150 million, while Kylie's rapper boyfriend Travis Scott was in 39th place with $58 million. She sold an estimated $360 million worth of Kylie Cosmetics, a company she owns 100 percent of, in the previous year, Forbes reported.

Portwood denied the incident with the pills and the machete but admitted to hitting her boyfriend while he was holding their son. Glennon also "believes that it is not now in James' best interests" for Portwood "to have unsupervised parenting time".

Our #Celeb100 cover star, Kanye West, comes in at No. 3. West's Yeezy shoe line raked in an estimated $1 billion in sales over the past 12 months, Forbes reports. He also owns his Yeezy clothing company.

The rest of the Top 10 include Lionel Messi with $127 million, Ed Sheeran with $110 million, Cristiano Ronaldo with $109 million, Neymar with $105 million, The Eagles with $100 million, Dr. Then comes another soccer star, Christiano Rinaldo, who actually took a pay cut with a four-year deal worth $64 annually. The couple ranked together at No. 20 after their "On the Run II" stadium tour earned them an estimated $5 million a night.

We are firmly in the second half of 2019 and Forbes has released its annual "World's Highest-Paid Celebrities" list which features the top 100 highest-paid athletes, entertainers, personalities and more. Several "Avengers" made the cut, as well as 17 newbies who were not previously on the list.
