Being famous comes with many luxuries that the general public can’t afford. Fast cars, sprawling mansions, bank balances that are never in the red – the list is endless. But, as every A-list celebrity will tell you, fame is a double-edged sword.
Disney stars, pop singers, and actors and actresses don’t have the freedom that we take for granted, but they do have the money to hire help to make their lives easier. In Hollywood, a good bodyguard is like finding a needle in a haystack, which is why these stars pay through the nose to keep them. Luckily, they can afford it.

After all, if you’ve got to shell out hundreds of thousands a year on personal security, you need to have more than just a couple of bucks in your bank account. Stars like Madonna may have a net worth of $610 million, but the more money you earn, the more you’ve got to pay up – especially when it comes to staying safe.

[SIZE=6]1. Jennifer Aniston[/SIZE]
Star’s Net Worth: $300 million*
Annual Protection Cost: $240,000*
Jennifer Aniston shot to fame as part of the cast of Friends in the ‘90s, going on to be true Hollywood royalty. As one of the most prominent A-listers on the planet, it’s no surprise that Aniston has to travel with a pretty hefty security entourage.

The former star of Comcast’s NBC series is constantly photographed and approached by fans, which can get a little out of control at times. With that being said, it’s no surprise that she spends upwards of $240,000 a year on “well-being.” Jennifer’s bodyguards are prone to change, but back in 2013, she was spotted with infamous celebrity protector Sheldon.
Sheldon has worked with many big names in the past, so Jen could rest assured that he knew what he was doing. It takes a lot to fend off a swarming mob of paparazzi, but Sheldon has both the confidence and the body power to get the actress from A to B safely.

[SIZE=6]2. Katy Perry[/SIZE]
Star’s Net Worth: $330 million*
Annual Protection Cost: $350,000*
Katy Perry has made a name for herself as a bonafide entertainment queen, staying on top of her game ever since she first released her hit single “I Kissed a Girl” back in 2008. Katy’s profile was further raised when she took her place on the judging panel on American Idol, making her even more famous than she was before.

Wherever the ABC star goes, so does her bodyguard. It’s thought that Perry upped her security after giving birth to her first child in 2020, but it’s likely she’ll keep her long-term guard around. He’s a hit with fans too, as some say he looks like a young Hugh Jackman.
In some cases, bodyguards get just as much attention from the media as the stars they’ve sworn to protect. That’s especially true when they happen to be handsome and well-built, for obvious reasons! Perry is rarely seen without her own personal security detail in tow.

[SIZE=6]3. David and Victoria Beckham[/SIZE]
Star’s Net Worth: $1 billion (combined)*
Annual Protection Cost: $1 million+*
Victoria Beckham may have been at the peak of her fame when she was part of the Spice Girls in the ‘90s, but the pop star turned fashion designer is still tabloid fodder. Both Victoria and her soccer ace husband David are worth a combined $1 billion, which is hardly surprising given their various business pursuits.

The Beckhams never travel without a security entourage, but their need to feel safe doesn’t end there. Back in 2014, they spent $1 million on ramping up security for just one of their properties, before installing guardhouses at another England residence in 2020.

David and Victoria have a very impressive property portfolio that’s thought to be worth over $80 million. With homes across the globe from Miami to Britain, it’s natural that they want to invest in protecting their assets as well as themselves.

[SIZE=6]4. Halle Berry[/SIZE]
Star’s Net Worth: $90 million*
Annual Protection Cost: $300,000*
Oscar-winning beauty Halle Berry isn’t a stranger to the public eye. She’s been ruling the entertainment business since the early ‘90s, so she’s used to dealing with the paparazzi, crazed fans, and everything in between. Of course, Halle does have a helping hand.

Over the course of her decades-long career, Berry has employed numerous bodyguards and is often spotted out and about with them. The star of Lionsgate’s Monster’s Ball loves to keep fit and takes her bodyguards out on hikes frequently. Whether they actually need the workout is a different story.

As you might expect, Berry’s bodyguards are in tip-top physical condition, just like the star herself. They need to be able to sprint at a moment’s notice and face danger head-on, so while the occasional hike won’t hurt, they’ve likely got their own personal training plan to keep up with!

[SIZE=6]5. Adele[/SIZE]
Star’s Net Worth: $190 million*
Annual Protection Cost: $75,000*
When it comes to singing sensations, Adele is the best of the best. Fans are usually charmed by her incredibly down-to-earth nature, but make no mistake – she’s filthy rich. With an estimated fortune of around $190 million, Adele can afford to splash the cash on the finer things in life, including round-the-clock security.

In 2017, it was reported that the Sony Music artist hired Lady Gaga’s former bodyguard Pete Van Der Veen. At that time, Van Der Veen came with a reported $70,000 per year price tag. It’s likely he may have been treated to a pay rise since then!

By all accounts, Van Der Veen comes highly recommended and has a sterling reputation. When fans first spotted Van Der Veen with Adele they were quite keen to know more about the Dutchman. It turns out that Peter has once crowned Mr. Europe, so he’s had his own taste of the limelight, too.

[SIZE=6]6. Barbra Streisand[/SIZE]
Star’s Net Worth: $400 million*
Annual Protection Cost: $125,000*
Barbra Streisand has so many acting, stage, and song credits that her resume is longer than the Hollywood Walk of Fame. With such an established career and a net worth of over $400 million, Streisand has earned the title of entertainment royalty. Babs is always gracious when it comes to meeting her fans, but like other A-listers, she never underestimates the need for security.

Streisand is often pictured out and about at public events, but she always has her bodyguards close to hand. While Babs is a huge force in the biz, she’s not quite as photographed as other stars which is why her security bill is probably on the lower side. Still, that doesn’t mean Barbra is taking a trip to Walmart unattended.

If Streisand has learned anything over the years, it’s that security is one element of fame never to be taken lightly. Even the best-meaning fans can get a little overzealous at times, so it’s best to keep a guard next to you just in case uncomfortable situations arise.

[SIZE=6]7. Bella Hadid[/SIZE]
Star’s Net Worth: $18 million*
Annual Protection Cost: $250,000*
Bella Hadid has been taking the fashion industry by storm over the last few years, alongside her sister Gigi. As one of the bright young things that designers love to work with, Bella is often in the spotlight, with photographers tripping over themselves to get a money shot.

[ATTACH=full]354659[/ATTACH]

One of Bella’s bodyguards has gained a lot of attention in the past for looking remarkably like a well-dressed Jason Statham, but Bella isn’t above scolding her protectors when they take their job a little too far. In 2017 she was quick to reprimand one of her guards when he pushed a female paparazzi. Hadid has been in the spotlight most of her life as her mother was a cast member on Comcast’s Bravo show, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Bella, Gigi, and their brother Anwar are all models on the rise in the fashion industry, so it’s likely security is always around in some form or another. When you factor in high-profile relationships, bodyguards become an essential part of everyday life.

[SIZE=6]8. Britney Spears[/SIZE]
Star’s Net Worth: $59 million*
Annual Protection Cost: $600,000*
Britney Spears has had a turbulent relationship with fame that often didn’t work in her favor. In the late ‘00s, harassment of Spears by the paparazzi contributed to a lot of her personal struggles. Their relentless pursuit often meant Britney couldn’t travel without a security team. In 2009, she was paying around $400,000 a year for security.

While Britney has largely taken a step back from the limelight, a documentary released on Disney’s Hulu in February 2021 has her name plastered all over the headlines again. It’s safe to say that Britney hasn’t scaled down her security in recent years and probably pays in excess of $600,000 per year for the various measures, including guards.

Security at Britney’s homes is also constantly reviewed and tight to make sure that the star and her children are always protected. Spears has remained one of the most pursued stars over the years, so it’s natural to think her bill will be significantly higher than some of her contemporaries.

[SIZE=6]9. Kylie Jenner[/SIZE]
Star’s Net Worth: $900 million*
Annual Protection Cost: $4.8 million*
In this Instagram age, Kylie Jenner has established herself as the jewel in the Kardashian-Jenner crown. The reality TV star launched Kylie Cosmetics several years ago and it was a runaway success. It’s thought that Jenner is worth an estimated $900 million, even though she’s just 23.

The hype around Kylie remains at an all-time high, so she takes her security very seriously. Back in 2019, Kyle’s dad Caitlin Jenner estimated that her daughter spends between $300,000-$400,000 a month on bodyguards and other security measures. Not bad for a kid that started out as Kim K’s little sister on Comcast’s E!.

A few years ago, the idea of Kylie being even more famous than her sister Kim would’ve been laughable. However, thanks to the extreme change in her appearance and the launch of her business empire, Kylie is firmly at the helm of the Kardashian-Jenner media machine.

[SIZE=6]10. Taylor Swift[/SIZE]
Star’s Net Worth: $290 million*
Annual Protection Cost: $400,000*
Ever since she first exploded onto the music scene in the late ‘00s, Taylor Swift’s profile has kept going up and up. With more best-selling albums and tours under her belt than you can shake a stick at, the talented songstress also has an army of loyal fans.

Thanks to her numerous feuds with other stars, Swift has remained a popular name in the gossip columns and on social media sites like Facebook, so the paparazzi are always keen to snap a picture. Luckily, Taylor usually has not one, but two bodyguards that follow her wherever she goes to make sure nothing untoward happens.

This often includes doing things that perhaps the guards may not be all that keen on, like sitting in the back seat on a rollercoaster ride or going shopping for hours on end. Thankfully, the salary more than makes up for that!

[SIZE=6]11. Rihanna[/SIZE]
Star’s Net Worth: $600 million*
Annual Protection Cost: $400,000*
Rihanna’s fans are among some of the most dedicated in the world. It’s not hard to see why. The starlet has proven time and time again that she’s in it for the long haul, selling millions of records and creating her very own clothing and beauty line, Fenty.

https://magazine.education.investing.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/Article-Image-Bodyguard-Rihanna.jpg

That being said, RiRi is a superstar that heavily relies on security to get her from A to B, whether she’s out to dinner with friends or touring the world. Rihanna’s annual protection costs will likely come in at around $500,000, if not more. Even if she slips out to Target, she won’t be alone.

Everyone knows who Rihanna is, even if they don’t listen to her music. With that being said, it’s not easy for RiRi to travel incognito, even if she wants to shop the clearance section like the rest of us mere mortals. For someone this famous, bodyguards are just part of the package.

[SIZE=6]12. Jennifer Lopez[/SIZE]
Star’s Net Worth: $400 million*
Annual Protection Cost: $500,000*
When it comes to fame, J-Lo has managed to attain the kind of notoriety that is reserved for a select few. Not only is she an accomplished actress, but she’s a chart-topping singer, too. There’s nothing that Lopez can’t do. She even sang at the 2021 presidential inauguration.

J-Lo may be used to playing characters in movies like Sony’s Maid in Manhattan, but in reality, she’s just filthy rich. With an estimated fortune of $290 million, Jen has enough room in the budget for an entire entourage of security. Given how popular she is, she needs it.

Any resemblance of a normal life went out the window for J-Lo many years ago, but her success is something she has worked hard to achieve. With a net worth of over $400 million and a relationship with legendary sportsman Alex Rodriguez, J-Lo has to keep security just as tight as her dance moves.

Probably charge it as a business expense to reduce the amount of overall taxes they pay. No wonder the cost is inflated

I also spend a lot of money in security matters but not in monetary terms

utajiri gharama

Kylie Jenner is almost worth as much as the Beckhams. How? She is famous for being famous.

It is said she exaggerated her worth

Kylie Jenner is reportedly no longer a billionaire, according to Forbes. The magazine claims that Jenner, 22, inflated the sales figures of her namesake company Kylie Cosmetics’, accusing the makeup mogul’s team of forging tax returns to boost her net worth and thus revoking her billionaire status on Friday.

Kylie Jenner Net Worth:
$700 Million

Kylie Jenner Net Worth 2020: Kylie Jenner is an American model, reality television star and cosmetics entrepreneur. In a given year, Kylie earns around $40 – $100 million from her various endeavors. The vast majority of her net worth comes from a cosmetics company called Kylie Cosmetics. In November 2019, Kylie sold 51% of her company to Coty Inc. for $600 million. Valuing the company as a whole at $1.2 billion. As of May 2020, that value has declined significantly. Kylie definitely earned around $340 million after taxes from the sale, but the value of her remaining 45% stake in the brand has gone down significantly. As of 2020 Kylie Jenner’s net worth is $700 million.

Labda maombi.
