The All For You hitmaker has boasted a multi-million dollar fortune for years, but now she has joined her new husband, retail entrepreneur Wissam Al Mana, and the elite group of moneymakers whose bank balances top $1 billion, according to industry publication Variety.

The singer has raked in a total of $260 million (168 million) in album sales thanks to the success of Control, Janet, Rhythm Nation 1814, Velvet Rope and she has also taken in another $81 million (52 million) from music and book publishing fees.

Jackson's multiple sold-out world tours have contributed another $458 million (295 million) to her net worth, with an additional $81.5 million (53 million) coming from tour sponsorships and licensing fees.

The 47 year old has also banked an impressive $304 million (196 million) from her box office roles in 2000's The Nutty Professor Ii: The Klumps, Poetic Justice and For Colored Girls.

The superstar's whopping personal fortune puts her in good company - Madonna, filmmakers George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, and media mogul Oprah Winfrey have all made the ultra-exclusive list.
