Adele is the Richest Young Musician in the UK

This might come as a surprise to you, but Adele has a ton of money. I know, crazy right?

A list has been compiled of the wealthiest Under-30 musicians in the UK and “Rumor Has It” that Adele is the richest. Actually, no rumor, it’s true.

Adele is estimated to be worth $32 million, which is a huge increase from the $7.2 million she was alleged to be worth this time last year. Her riches are thanks in part to her sophomore album “21” selling 20 million copies since it’s release last January.

The other Brit artists on the rich list pale in comparison to Adele’s riches. Coming in at #2 is a three-way tie between Cheryl Cole, Leona Lewis, and Katie Melua who all have $19.2 million each.

Joss Stone made the list with $16 million, Charlotte Church, Craig David and Paolo Nutini have $12.8 million each.

In the richest young actors of the UK, Daniel Radcliffe holds the top spot with $86.4 million net worth. Robert Pattinson follows with $64 million, Keira Knightly still has $48 million, and the rest of the Harry Potter kids Emma Watson ($41 million) and Rupert Grint ($38 million) round out the top 5.

The full Top 10 lists for both the top-earning musicians and actors will be released on April 29, 2012.
