Whether it’s because your parents were rich or you did everything in your power to make it to the top, that kind of success doesn’t go unnoticed--especially when you’re below 25 and already killing it in whichever industry you belong to.
Speaking of making it big and staying there, here are the top richest celebrities already making millions just before 25.
Net Worth: $300 Million
The first one on this list is hardly surprising. Her family may have built their own corner in the industry by blowing up in the world of reality TV but Kylie made her success her own eventually when she launched her incredibly successful make-up line, Kylie Cosmetics. It’s a success story that put Kylie Jenner in the spotlight, a place she used to share with her sisters as a kid. Although it’s all good between the sisters, they can’t deny that Kylie is doing really well for herself despite her age.
According to Fame 10, an entertainment news website, the world of social media also helped her really come out on top. She is the most-followed celebrity on Instagram, the most recognizable of the Kardashian-Jenner sisters, and the highest-paid Instagram endorser to date. She’s so big that Forbes even predicts Kylie will probably be worth $800 to $900 million when she continues this trajectory.
Net Worth: $40 Million
Another member of the Kardashian-Jenner family is on top: Kendall Jenner, supermodel and the daughter of Caitlyn Jenner and Kris Jenner. From her beginnings on her family’s reality TV show, Kendall has grown to become quite the character in fashion shows, garnering deals and endorsements to work on and walking different runways for different designers.
Kendall has done many high-profile shoots and is now the face of Estee Lauder.
Net Worth: $29 Million
Fellow model and a friend to Kendall, Gigi began modeling at a really young age. She began at age two! But that’s hardly unbelievable considering her mother is already pretty well-acquainted with the limelight since being part of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Fame 10 reports that Gigi “signed to IMG Models in 2013” and from there followed an upward trajectory to winning the International Model of the Year award by the British Fashion Council in addition to already making millions in her own right.
She is paid about $10 million a year for each deal she has with brands like Maybelline, Evian, BMW, Versace, and many others.

Net Worth: $16 Million
At age 16, Breslin was already pretty successful. According to a report by Page Six, a source for celebrity and industry news, Breslin is also the youngest star to be nominated for an Academy Award. The Odyssey Online, an American internet media company operating on a crowdsourced model, states that Breslin’s success comes in large part from her role in “Little Miss Sunshine” at age 9.
The film went on to receive critical acclaim and therefore effectively put Breslin to the top. She received a nomination for Best Supporting Actress just this year and will continue to be making more major films in her career.
Net Worth: $14 Million
He blew up from creating music on his Soundcloud, and so his appearance in this list makes a lot of sense. Post is also immediately recognizable for the number of his face tats, which many people find either endearingly funny or highly impractical. Fame 10 reports that Post’s success is even slightly fun serendipity, especially since he was voted Most Likely to Become Famous in high school. His album “Stoney” proved to the world that he might as well be famous.
Some of his newer songs are now more relatable and he has grown to find his voice in this era. The difference is that people’s music changes, so regardless of the fact that his career took a slight slowdown since blowing up, the most important thing to remember is that Post still made it big, and that alone is a big thing.

Net Worth: $12 Million
Lorde set the Billie Eilish playbook up; she was that edgy teen who lived for moody music videos and even moodier music. While they are stylistically and vocally different, it can be said that Lorde walked so Billie Eilish could run. According to Page Six, Lorde’s success became more and more apparent when she got a slew of Grammys for her work, her songs, and her style.
When she came out with “Royals,” with that deep bass and that slight synth-vibe track and ethereal vocals, it became clear that she would become a force to be reckoned with. According to The Odyssey Online, she won two Grammy Awards just for that song in 2014: Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year.
