LVMH French luxury goods titan Bernard Arnault and his family topped the chart with an estimated $233bn.

The man behind the AI tool ChatGPT also made the list for the first time, with a net worth of $1billion.

Forbes said there were a record 2,781 billionaires for 2024, which is 141 more than last year.

It’s rare for a musician to reach this level of wealth, Forbes has reported she is the first person to reach billionaire status solely from her music.

Not only is Taylor a talented singer-songwriter, she’s clearly an acute businesswoman.

As she builds her mega-empire, she’s pulling in revenue from sales of concert tickets, cinema tickets and merchandise.

Her ongoing Eras Tour (which is coming to Dublin this summer) is the first billion dollar tour ever, boosting economies worldwide.

Give us a loan of a tenner there Taylor?
