Jay Chou Dethroned As The Richest Chinese Celeb By This 68-Year-Old Actor
Chi Zhongrui, whose wife is the richest woman in China, is best known for playing the monk Tang Sanzang in the classic 1986 TV series Journey To The West.
Move aside, Jay Chou. According to Chinese media, who released a ranking of celebs with the highest net worth recently, the richest Chinese celeb is not the 42-year-old singer.
The list, which took into account their earnings from 2017 to 2020, saw Jay bringing home 2.1bil yuan (S$447mil).
However, his hefty windfall could only land him the second spot on the list.
Coming in third and fourth are Taiwanese '90s pop idol-turned-entrepreneur Jimmy Lin, 47, and martial arts superstar Jackie Chan, 67, who made 1bil yuan (S$213mil) and 0.9 bil yuan (S$196mil) respectively.
