Simon Cowell Named One Of The Highest-Earning Celeb Moguls — How Much Did He Make?
Got Talent judge Simon Cowell recently made it onto a pretty impressive list recognizing his business skills. According to Hello, he was ranked highly in a global league table by digital marketing firm Digitaloft.
The table lists the highest-earning celebrity moguls. Read on to find out where Simon ranked, and how much money he earned to reach his spot on the list.
How Much Did Simon Cowell Earn?
Both Simon and former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham earned £34 million, to tie for 12th place on the list. Rapper Dr. Dre took the top spot, with Kanye West in second place and his wife Kim Kardashian in tenth.
Simon Cowell owns Syco Entertainment, a multimedia company producing music and television. Earlier this year, Simon paid to regain control of Syco from Sony, with the exception of Syco Music. He chose to focus on his TV projects.
“I’ve always believed it’s important to take on new goals in order to drive new ideas and creativity,” Simon said of his decision, “so I’m very excited to be taking an independent and creatively-led Syco Entertainment into the future.”
When Is Simon Getting Back To Work?
Simon fell off his new electric bike in August, breaking his back. He had to have a metal rod put in, and has been recovering at home in Malibu. Although there were hopes that he might make an appearance during the America’s Got Talent live shows, that didn’t end up happening.
Meanwhile, on Britain’s Got Talent, Simon has been replaced by Ashley Banjo during the live shows. We’re still not sure if he’ll make an appearance by the end of the season, but his ex-girlfriend Sinitta recently made it clear that his accident was “serious” and “very scary.”
She added that he’s eager to get back to work. “We’re trying to keep him still,” Sinitta said. “We’re trying to keep him more focused on being well than entertaining the nation which is difficult because he’s a workaholic.”
