  • The 30 wealthiest Latino/Hispanic celebrities.
  • How is a celebrity’s net worth calculated?
  • These are the richest stars.

Calculating a celebrity’s net worth is an incredibly complex endeavor that primarily involves a lot of educated guessing.

It also demands thorough research (one must truly delve into the heart of the matter), and, of course, compiling information available from various public sources.

Here, we have worked to provide the most accurate figures we could find to the best of our ability.

Now, who are the wealthiest Latino/Hispanic celebrities in the world? Some names will surprise you, while others won’t. Let’s take a peek into the glamorous world of the most affluent celebrities of our time.

Wealthiest Hispanic celebrities: First up is Carlos Slim Helú

In the top spot of wealthiest Hispanic celebrities, boasting a massive fortune of $59.9 billion (in real-time), we present the mogul of Telmex, América Móvil and Grupo Carso — none other than Carlos Slim Helú!

While not exactly a celebrity in strict terms, Slim, the wealthiest man in the Hispanic world, is famous simply for being incredibly wealthy. Remarkable, isn’t it?

So, who in Latin America and the world know the prolific tycoon behind Sanborns? Exactly! Carlos Slim was rich before being rich was fashionable.

Between 2010 and 2013, he was the wealthiest man in the world. However, newcomers like Jeff Bezos (of Amazon), Elon Musk (of Tesla), and Mark Zuckerberg (of Facebook) have since dethroned him.

Cristiano Ronaldo

According to sufficiently reliable sources, the Brazilian star has just joined the billionaire club, becoming the first professional footballer in history to do so.

The astronomical discrepancy between the top two positions is quite notable and revealing. However, one billion is still a considerable fortune.

In addition to his soccer salary, Nike pays him over $20 million annually for a lifetime contract he signed in 2016, making him — alongside Michael Jordan and LeBron James — one of the only ones with such an agreement with the sportswear brand.

Furthermore, it is rumored that Ronaldo earns more money as an Instagram influencer than as a player, as he has an overwhelming base of followers and fans on social media.

Lionel Messi, another footballer, is among the wealthiest Hispanic celebrities

Ronaldo’s ‘archrival’ always follows him closely. We confess that due to the fierce competition between the two stars, it remains undecided for now who is truly richer.

However, what is clear to us is that the gap is very narrow.

According to the Heraldo de España, Messi was the fourth athlete to become a billionaire, behind Tiger Woods, Floyd Mayweather and, of course, Cristiano Ronaldo.

Like Ronaldo, Messi has a massive following both on Instagram and Facebook. He has a multimillion-dollar lifetime contract with the Adidas brand and several other commercial contracts.
