Nick Cannon isn’t afraid of calling BS when he sees it, and that’s exactly what he’s doing with this year’s Forbes list.
On the list which tracks the richest celebrities, JAY-Z and Kylie Jenner tied for the No. 4 and 5 spot with $900 million each. But Cannon doubts the reality star and beauty mogul is really raking in as much as Hov, and explained why in a recent interview with Vlad TV.
The Wild ‘n Out host thinks Forbes lists are nothing but a PR stunt, with some celebs trying to get on a list, and others opting out. As he explains, celebs have some money that’s private, and other funds that are public information. Cannon believes Jenner is worth $900 million (most of which is the estimated value of Kylie Cosmetics), but that JAY’s private funds likely aren’t being reported.
"At this point, I don't think JAY-Z's publicist has to pitch him for Forbes," says Cannon. "But Kylie, I feel some spinning there. I'm not necessarily rocking. Somebody's publicist made a call and they know the attention she be getting. You know if we say that she's the equivalent to JAY-Z and it's the number one spot, it's gonna make news everywhere.'"
The only two people who know are, of course, JAY-Z and Kylie. Jenner made headlines last year after being dubbed the youngest soon-to-be billionaire, again thanks to her beauty giant Kylie Cosmetics.
As to why he’s never been on a Forbes list: “I don’t like people to know how much money I have,” Cannon explained. Alrighty then.
