It's not a feud - it's the fact that they're the three highest-paid celebrities this year, according to Forbes. Swift's "Reputation" Stadium Tour grossed $266.1 million which was the highest-grossing tour in United States history. She is followed by Kylie Jenner ($170 million) and Forbes' latest cover star Kanye West ($150 million), who returns to the list after a four-year hiatus. Instead of measuring net worth, the magazine looked at "front of the camera" stars around the globe and measured their pre-tax earnings between June 1 2018, and June 1, 2019.

Taylor Swift has beaten Kylie Jenner to be named the world's highest earning entertainer. The mag says her estimated pay increased an insane 131% from the year before, when she made a paltry $80 mil.

A lot of that money comes from her Reputation Stadium World Tour, which wrapped up previous year and brought in $345 million internationally into the Swift camp.

American boxer Floyd Mayweather and actor George Clooney took the top two spots on last year's list but landed outside the top 10 this time.

Our #Celeb100 cover star, Kanye West, comes in at No. 3. He also owns his Yeezy clothing company.

Kim Kardashian ranks at no. 26 with a yearly income of $72 million.

Earlier this year, the publication acknowledged Kylie Jenner for becoming the first self-made billionaire, so obviously, she's also topped the list for highest-paid, right? 20-year-old Shawn Mendes is the youngest person on the list, at No. 98 with earnings of $38 million, while the oldest is 77-year-old Paul McCartney, who ranks at No. 62 with earnings of $48 million.

Forbes breaks down their list into subgroups.

Taylor Swift is immensely popular, so it wouldn't be surprising to learn that she is the highest-paid musician in the world.
