Ariana Grande’s net worth is now estimated to be at $150 million. Here’s how she built her massive fortune.

The singer raked in at least $72 million between June 2019 and May 2020, according to Forbes. This made Grande the 17th highest-paid celebrity this year in a poll released by Forbes.

The top 10 is dominated by male musicians, rappers, sports superstars and actors. However, the top spot on Forbes' list of highest-paid celebrities belongs to Kylie Jenner, who earned a whopping $590 million from the huge deal between Kylie Cosmetics and Coty.

Grande, on the other hand, earned big from her "Sweetener" world tour in 2019, which grossed $146 million. The singer-songwriter is one of the most followed celebrities on social media, boasting a combined 291 million followers on Instagram and Twitter. 

She is also one of the top brand endorsers in the world. Grande has represented Coach, Givenchy, Mac Cosmetics, Reebok, Starbucks, Apple and Luxe Brands, among others.

The Boca Raton, Florida native started her career in theater. Grande was part of the Fort Lauderdale Children's Theater, according to Celebrity Net Worth. She made her TV debut in Nickelodeon’s “Victorious,” which aired from 2009 to 2013.

The child actress transitioned to making music and released her first album, “Yours Truly,” in 2013. It peaked at the top of the Billboard 200 chart. She followed it up with her second album, “My Everything,” in 2014. Her third album, "Dangerous Woman," became a smash hit as soon as it was released in 2016.

Grande has also collaborated with various artists in her career. John Legend, Lizzo, Miley Cyrus, Iggy Azalea, Lana del Rey, Big Sean and A$AP Ferg are some of the musicians she has worked with over the years.

More than album sales and lucrative collaborations, the 27-year-old makes serious money doing world tours. Her 2017 “Dangerous Woman” tour raked in $71 million.

The wealth she accumulated in recent years has been put to good use. She acquired a mansion in Hollywood Hills that carries a price tag of $13.7 million. Moreover, she bought the former house of Ellen DeGeneres in Montecito, California, for $6.7 million. 

On the personal side, Grande is now engaged to Dalton Gomez, which the singer announced through her Instagram account Sunday. She was linked to the late Mac Miller and Pete Davidson before dating Gomez, who is a real estate agent.
