Nick Cannon: Mogul In The Making And Full-Time Student | Forbes

Published

on

On an overcast November morning in Washington, D.C., Nick Cannon was busy, as one would expect of the multihyphenate who jockeys every morning on the radio, hosts two hit competition series and a podcast, is producing and directing two movies, and tours with a stand-up show. But he wasn’t thinking about his next interview or camera angles. Instead, as his red eye from Los Angeles landed, finals were on his mind, specifically the one he had at 5 p.m. for a public health and society class at Howard University, where he enrolled as a full-time student in 2016.

He’s set to get his degree this May and hopes to follow it up with a masters in psychology, but—as seems to be the trend with the ever-juggling Cannon—graduating won’t be his only accomplishment in 2020. In the fall, his syndicated talk show will debut on Fox broadcast networks, where he already hosts The Masked Singer. Like many other top-paid TV hosts, Cannon has moved on from only being the face of a series—he previously hosted America’s Got Talent and a handful of Nickelodeon shows—to taking a bigger role behind the scenes. He’s signed on to produce both his talk show and the Masked Singer through his Ncredible Productions, meaning he’ll not only collect a salary, but also get a cut of the profits. Projects produced by Ncredible generated over $100 million in revenue last year—he also produces MTV’s Wild ‘N Out—and that’s expected to double this year.

Why Kylie Jenner Is No Longer A Billionaire | Forbes Investigates | Forbes

Published

on

By

More than a decade into their fame, the Kardashian-Jenners tend to induce eye-rolls and sighs among jaded media consumers. But when it comes to their wealth, even critics of reality TV’s first family are intrigued; the Kardashian-Jenner machine—and the cash it generates—has been the subject of articles, podcasts, even books. But no one cares more about the topic than the family itself, which has spent years fighting Forbes for higher spots on our annual wealth and celebrity earnings lists.

So when the youngest of the clan, Kylie Jenner, sold 51% of her Kylie Cosmetics to beauty giant Coty in a deal valued at $1.2 billion this January, it was a watershed moment for the family. One of the greatest celebrity cashouts of all time, the transaction seemed to confirm what Kylie had been saying all along and what Forbes had declared in March 2019: that Kylie Jenner was, indeed, a billionaire—at least before the coronavirus.

But in the deal’s fine print, a less flattering truth emerged. Filings released by publicly traded Coty over the past six months lay bare one of the family’s best-kept secrets: Kylie’s business is significantly smaller, and less profitable, than the family has spent years leading the cosmetics industry and media outlets, including Forbes, to believe.

Of course white lies, omissions and outright fabrications are to be expected from the family that perfected—then monetized—the concept of “famous for being famous.” But, similar to Donald Trump’s decades-long obsession with his net worth, the unusual lengths to which the Jenners have been willing to go—including inviting Forbes into their mansions and CPA’s offices, and even creating tax returns that were likely forged—reveals just how desperate some of the ultra-rich are to look even richer.

“It’s fair to say that everything the Kardashian-Jenner family does is oversized,” says Stephanie Wissink, an equity analyst covering consumer products at Jefferies. “To stay on-brand, it needs to be bigger than it is.”

Based on this new information—plus the impact of COVID-19 on beauty stocks and consumer spending—Forbes now thinks that Kylie Jenner, even after pocketing an estimated $340 million after tax from the sale, is not a billionaire.
