The New York Post says Janet Jackson: Billionaire, has earned over $458 million from touring, $304 million from her acting roles, $260 million in album sales and $81 million in sponsorship and licensing fees.

Variety describes Janet Jackson's childhood as less than smooth sailing. As the youngest sibling with 6 older brothers, one of whom being the King of Pop being over shadowed can sometimes feel like a natural thing.

But this time it is baby sister Janet Jackson shining in the spot light. Now that she is a billionaire Janet Jackson has surpassed the King of Pop, at least financially anyway. Jacko's fortune was in the high millions when he died in 2009. Although while doing an interview in the late 90's Michael Jackson did elude that his fortune was close to the billion dollar range, he never actually made it there.

OMG Yahoo reports that Janet Jackson is not the only billionaire in her family. The "I Get Lonely" singer is married to billionaire retail mogul Wissam Al Mana. Janet Jackson's billionaire husband made his fortune by investing in the Middle East.
