janet jackson marriedJanet Jackson has joined the exclusive billionaires club thanks to her mega-successful albums, tours and acting roles, Variety reports.

According to the publication, Jackson has raked in a total of $260 million in album sales thanks to her hit albums “Control” (1986), “Janet” (1993) and “Rhythm Nation” 1814 (1989), and another $81 million off music and publishing fees. Her sold-out world tours have earned her another $458 million, with an additional $81.5 million coming from tour sponsorships and licensing fees.

And let’s not forget that Jackson is an actress too — her roles in “The Nutty Professor,” “The Klumps,” “Poetic Justice” and “For Colored Girls” has banked her a whopping $304 million.

Though Jackson of course isn’t the only billionaire in her marriage — her husband, retail entrepreneur Wissam Al Mana (whom she married last year in a private ceremony), is a billionaire all on his own.

Jackson joins the exclusive list of celebrity billionaires which includes Madonna, George Lucas, Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey.
