In terms of net worth, Kelly Rowland is not quite as rich as her former Destiny’s Child bandmate Beyonce, but she’s got some bucks. Rowland’s personal wealth is estimated to be $18 million—not bad, considering she’s only 31 years old. How did Roland make all that money? Destiny’s Child has sold more than 40 million albums, and as a solo artist, she’s cracked the top 20 with “Dilemma”—her chart-topping team-up with rapper Nelly—and “Motivation.”
Rowland’s net worth has also been bolstered by her European popularity. Across the pond, she scored big with “When Love Takes Over,” her collaboration with French dance producer David Guetta. That song was a No. 1 U.K. hit, and her single “What a Feeling,” which paired her with Italian DJ and producer Alex Guadino, also struck a chord with British fans, reaching No. 6.

She’s fared well at home, too. Rowland’s latest album, 2011’s Here I Am, reached No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and topped the R&B chart. Rowland has also appeared on television and in films. She recently served as a judge on the British reality show The X Factor, and prior to that, she was on NBC’s Clash of the Choirs and Bravo’s The Fashion Show. Her filmography includes Think Like a Man (2012), The Seat Filler (2004), and the horror flick Freddy vs. Jason (2003).
In case you were wondering, Beyonce’s net worth is $300 million, and if you factor in husband Jay-Z’s dough, the couple is sitting on an estimated $775 million. Rowland has some catching up to do!
