Madonna is the wealthiest woman in the music business, with an estimated net worth between US$590 million to $800 million. She has sold over 300 million records worldwide. The Guinness World Records acknowledged her as the best-selling female music artist of all time. According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), she is the best-selling female rock artist of the 20th century and the third highest-certified female albums artist in the United States, with 64.5 million certified album units. Madonna is the most certified artist of all time in United Kingdom, with 45 awards from the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) as of April 2013.
Real Estate: Perhaps not surprisingly, Madonna owns an impressive real estate portfolio that includes homes around the world. She at one point owned SIX properties in London alone. It's not clear how many of those she still owns, it's likely that some were traded to Guy Richie during their divorce.
In September 2017, Madonna paid a little under $9 million for an 18th century mansion on 5.5-acres in Sintra, Portugal. For many years she owned 6,000 square-foot New York City apartment which she sold in 2013 for $16 million. She still owns a smaller unit in that same building, which she bought in 2008 for $7 million. But that's not her only New York City abode! In 2009 she paid $32 million for a 12,000 square-foot townhouse that has a two car garage, NINE fireplaces, a wine cellar and elevator. She also owns a 50-acre equestrian property in Bridgehampton, New York which was purchased in 2010 for $7 million over two transactions.
In 2003, when she was married to Guy Richie, Madonna paid $12 million for an incredible Beverly Hills mansion. The seller was actress Sela Ward and her venture capitalist husband Howard Sherman. Sitting on 1.25 gated acres, the property featured a 17,000 square-foot home with 9-bedrooms, full-size home theater, gym, pool and tennis court. She listed the home for sale in 2012 for $28 million. She then listed it again in 2013 for $22.5 million ultimately hitting a sale later that year for $19.5 million. The buyer was Rockstar energy drink founder Russell Weiner. Amazingly, Russ listed the house in 2018 for a cool $35 million.
Is Madonna a Billionaire?: Contrary to a popular rumor, Madonna is not a billionaire. Back in 2013, a little-known Madonna fan blog misinterpreted the fact that her MDNA tour grossed $300 million to mean that Madonna herself was $300 million richer and therefore a billionaire. At the time her net worth was $650 million. First off, even if Madonna did somehow make $300 million, after taxes, she would only be worth $950 million which is not quite a billionaire. But more importantly, the claim that $300 million in gross concert revenue equates to a net $300 million increase in her personal wealth is grossly misinformed. That $300 million number is gross revenue, which means before costs are taken out. Madonna is lucky to take home 10-20% of her tour's profits after all expenses are removed. That would still be a very nice income, but nowhere near $300 million. Unfortunately, many reputable media outlets helped spread this false rumor by snowballing the story as fact across hundreds of websites, magazines and newspapers. The rumor has since been debunked by virtually every reputable wealth tracking media outlet including Forbes, CelebrityNetWorth, Bloomberg and more.
