Have you ever thought about the ridiculous wads of cash that celebrities earn? Although Biggie Smalls’ song title ‘Mo Money Mo Problems’ carries its fair share of truth, surely many of us would rather add some more problems to the list, if they’d be accompanied by a nice stack of cash on the side! Well, there’s no denying that some of us are doing a much better job than most celebrities are; don’t we deserve a similar compensation for our efforts? 

Yeah, life isn’t fair. While you’re sweating blood and shedding tears working your 9-5, probably making ends meet, there are these talentless, filthy rich celebs. It should be illegal that they’re even famous, let alone managing to rake in millions! While you’ve probably gone to college, earned a degree (or two!), and are struggling to pay student debt, there are these people who probably never even cracked open a book! But hey, if fame and fortune ain’t your thing, you may want to try your luck with an online scratch card, who knows, you might win enough to make a monthly payment. Worth a shot, no?

Before you go ahead and try your luck at winning big, why don’t you read about the massive discrepancy between the real worth of these celebrities and their net worth?

#1. Paris Hilton

She’s worth $300 million. Seriously?! The Los Angeles socialite became famous after a sex tape leaked in 2004, supposedly by her ex-boyfriend Rick Salomon, which depicted the two engaging in intercourse. Known for being “famous for being famous”, she is a member of the Hilton family, the famously wealthy owners of one of the world’s largest hotel chains, led off by Conrad Hilton. Paris tried modeling, singing and acting, with her talent in each of the departments leaving much to be desired.

#2. Victoria Beckham

The Posh Spice Girl who also happens to be the wife of a hunky soccer star, is now the person behind the fashion brand ‘dvb Style’. Many agree that her initial fame as a Spice Girl was undeserved. She had admitted this herself when she told Elle Magazine: “It became very obvious from the start that I was never going to be the best singer or the best dancer or the best actress. I was never a ‘natural.’ You know, I’ve never been that good at anything, to be completely honest.” Hey, so how come her net worth is $450 million?

Although her current fashion brand can’t exactly be classified under the lack of talent category, there’s a lot to be said about her business ethic. For instance, her advertising campaigns tend to represent the same body type and skin tone. Plus, there’s no sense of environmental awareness in the attire she promotes, as she uses very few eco-friendly materials. 

#3. Taylor Swift

While Hilton is said to have become “famous for being famous”, this one is said to have gotten famous by “trashing guys she dated”. Saying that she plays the victim in most of her songs and that every lyric is overloaded with drama is no news. The star has also failed to engage politically as for many years she didn’t use her platform to speak out on important social and political issues. Although she has become more politically engaged in recent years, her actions might be too little, too late. Definitely not worth her current capital which stands at $450 million!

#4. Justin Bieber

Although he had taken the pre-teen world by storm in 2008, the ‘Baby’ singer is known for lip-syncing during live performances, which really could use a bit of more showmanship. We also know it’s not the first time he got into legal trouble, using drugs, and being disrespectful towards fans and paparazzi. He’s also faced allegations of mistreating women, including sexual assault and emotional abuse. And don’t you find him inauthentic in his public image and music? His image and style is just made to fit the latest trends and to appeal to a wider audience. Wouldn’t it be great if anyone having all these blunders under their belt would be worth Bieber’s $300 million?

#5. Tom Cruise

Despite being the highest grossing box office movie stars of all time, currently worth $620 million, Cruise’s public conduct is pathetic to say the least. For starters, in 1999 he publicly recounted a story where he had restricted oxygen for a passenger on a plane – and, get this – he was narrating the story in fits of laughter! And when he criticized actress Brooke Shields for using antidepressants, well that’s just a complete no-no. There’s a ton of other instances to mention. During the pandemic, for instance, he simply flew into a rage after spotting two of the crew members standing within two meters of each other. Disproportionate much?

#6. Rob Kardashian

This one hasn’t really achieved anything much in his career outside of his family’s reality show. Yeah, he’s had a couple of business ventures here and there, including his sock line Arthur George, but he never even came close to the same level of success as his siblings in their respective industries. Still, he’s a master in airing his personal drama on social media and reality TV. His engagement to Blac Chyna, for instance, is one of his renowned tragedies which ended in a bitter and highly publicized breakup. The Kardashian has also been involved in several legal issues, including a custody battle with Blac Chyna over their daughter, and a lawsuit filed against him by a photographer who claimed he was assaulted by Rob. Having a net worth of $10 million for all this is quite a good deal, don’t you think?
