This fame-loving family has become the world’s most bankable reality TV phenomenon since the series Keeping Up with the Kardashians started in 2007. Then there are the spin-offs, including Kourtney and Kim Take New York and Khloé and Lamar, not to mention numerous endorsement deals. The latest sees Khloé come to Dubai on 17 November, when she’ll appear at Lipsy at The Dubai Mall.
BANK BALANCE: $207 million (Dhs760m).
The British band have set hearts aflutter ever since forming on Brit reality show The X Factor by music mogul Simon Cowell (himself worth a cool Dhs1,360 million). Hotties Harry, Liam, Niall, Zayn and Louis have even made a movie, This is Us.
BANK BALANCE: $40 million (Dhs146m).
Since acing the first season of American Idol in 2002, the Texan singer has been one of its biggest successes. She sang at Obama’s inauguration, won three Grammys and still tops the charts!

This frumpy Scottish singer became a global superstar after wowing the judges on TV show Britain’s Got Talent.

BANK BALANCE: $18 million (Dhs66m).
