Celebrity Net Worth



Needless to say, Hosni Mubarak is in the dog house. He is currently under arrest in Egypt after that country’s brief and reversed revolution.  Now that the revolution in Egypt has come full circle, and Mubarak’s old military cronies are back in power, the future of Hosni is quite a bit brighter.  But he is sick and getting very old.

Number 12, Ingvar Kamprad is the founder of IKEA.

Amancio Ortega Gaona is a Spanish fashion magnate. He designs clothes and has a few chains of upscale fashion stores.

And what about our Mr. Putin?

Vladimir Putin’s Secret Billion Dollar Fortune:
Official disclosures list Putin’s annual Presidential salary at $187,000 (5.8 million rubles). Putin also claims to have a relatively meager net worth consisting of $180,000 in a savings account, a few Russian-made automobiles and a 16,000 square foot plot of land in the Moscow suburbs. Putin’s wife Lyudmila controls bank accounts totaling $260,000. In total, they claim their net worth totals less than $500,000.

During his reign, many Russian insiders and experts believe that Putin has used his power to do a little more than improve life for the common Russian citizen. While many previously state-owned industries were privatized, Putin allegedly has used his power to build large secret ownership stakes several multi-billion dollar commodity firms. His most vocal critics assert that Putin has leveraged his power to acquire a 4.5% ownership stake in natural gas producer Gazprom, a 37% stake in oil company Surgutneftegas and 50% stake in Swiss oil-trader Gunvor. Gazprom alone does over $150 billion in revenue annually, Guvnor does $80 billion and Surgutneftegas over $20 billion. Using their most recent market capitalizations, Putin’s combined ownership stakes would give him a personal net worth of $70 billion!
