15 Underdog Celebs Who Were Rich Long Before Fame

All of these celebrities are pretty much winning at whatever they do — whether it’s acting, singing, modeling, or quite literally just being famous for being famous (like the Kardashians). But you have to keep in mind that, while celebrities often find their rise to fame by associating themselves with other famous people, these 15 celebs were already loaded with money before they found fame.

The wealth, which usually comes from their hard working parents, eventually helped them launch careers in the field of music, movies, sports, and modeling, while the rest of these stars used their parents’ wealth to associate themselves with other rich people, eventually growing a following of their own and making them become some sort of celebrity themselves. Here are 15 huge stars who were actually rich before they found fame.

15 Lana Del Rey

14 Paris Hilton

13 Nicole Richie

12 Kim Kardashian

11 Ariana Grande

10 Gigi Hadid

9 Miley Cyrus

8 Ashlee Simpson

7 Kendall and Kylie Jenner

6 Janet Jackson

5 Jake Gyllenhaal

4 Lourdes Leon

3 Brooklyn Beckham

2 Taylor Swift

1 Lily-Rose Depp

Lily-Rose Depp was rich well before she started her modeling career, let’s just make that clear. Her last name is Depp, already hinting at who her father could possibly be — Johnny Depp, of course. The actor, who is worth hundreds of millions, is very close with his daughter, and if Johnny is anything like what fans would imagine him to be, he’s probably the one who would spoil Lily with all kinds of gifts. Not that anything is wrong with that, but it will clarify the fact that Lily-Rose grew up in a household where money would never have been an issue for her parents since they were both well off with cash. Her mother, Vanessa Paradis, doesn’t exactly have as much as Johnny, but she’s definitely in the millions range, that’s for sure. And with that said, Lily just recently signed a deal with Chanel to endorse their latest line of products — so expect to hear her name more often in the near future.
