The woman who grew up in poverty in the Bronx is now one of the richest women in music, although the singer’s “Jenny From The Block” track served to remind fans that the diva reputation was nothing more than a front. J Lo’s net worth continues to rise as she conquers every aspect of showbusiness, and we’ve broken down exactly what the Latina has to her name.
Keep reading to see how the “Hustlers” actress earned her cash.
J Lo’s 2019 net worth was listed at a staggering $400 million. The singer is reported to be raking in $40 million a year thanks to her music, TV appearances, brands, and endorsements, with Lopez repeatedly landing the Forbes Celebrity 100 list.
Way back in 2012, J Lo was already bringing in $52 over 12 months – largely due to her salary on “American Idol,” but equally thanks to lucrative endorsements with brands such as L’Oréal Paris and Gucci. Just recently, J Lo was announced as the new face of Versace.
In 2019, Jennifer ranked 76th on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list, with $43 million.
In 2018, Jennifer’s “Glow” fragrance was listed as the best celebrity perfume of all time by Paper. The iconic fragrance is reported to be a $2 billion empire, although Lopez has more than just a scent to her name.
1998 saw the singer launch her own clothing, fragrances, and Inglot makeup lines, with the brand reported to have boasted a $300 million revenue by 2004.
Lopez currently has a clothing collaboration with Niyama Sol – the athleisurewear line is promoted over on the singer’s Instagram, where she has 111 million followers. Jen also collaborates with clothing empire Guess.
Jennifer has definitely earned from her music – she’s sold over 80 million records and earned an estimated $95 million from her beats – but the high income over short periods of time is best seen with the Latina’s television appearances.
Jennifer was a judge for five seasons on reality competing show “American Idol.” Her salary was $12 million for the first season, rising to $20 million in the second.
Lopez is also reported to have earned $24 million from YouTube alone.
Lopez also comes as an acting face. Her 1997 “Anaconda” movie earned her $1 million, but salaries were way higher in later years. By 2001, Jen was earning $12 million as she starred in “The Wedding Planner.” More recently, Lopez starred alongside rapper Cardi B in “Husters.”
Real estate might involve some spending, but play your cards right, and you can make money from it. Lopez’s portfolio has seen her earn $7 million by selling her NYC penthouse apartment at a profit. The star also owns a $6.6 million Malibu beachhouse with fiancé Alex Rodgriguez – the couple has sold their NYC condo for a sweet $17.5 million.
