The Richest Celebrities Under 25

By on March 25, 2015 in ArticlesHow Much Does

These celebrities are young, rich, and not even at the top of their careers yet (we assume).  Some, like Abigail Breslin, Justin Bieber, Dakota Fanning, and Miley Cyrus have been working since they were children. Now they can enjoy their 20s (and rest of their lives) knowing they should always be very, very, rich. Other on this list, like Kristen Stewart and Emma Watson have built their bank accounts on the back of lucrative film franchises that came a little later in life. Not surprisingly, a number of these rich, young celebs made their money the old fashioned way – by being a Disney star. However they made it, these 17 celebs have it made with millions and millions and millions of dollars in the bank. Let's take a look at the 17 filthy richest celebs under 25. BTW it should be noted that as of this writing, Taylor Swift (net worth $200 million) has been 25 years old for around 4 months. In other words, just a tiny bit too old to be "under 25".
