* According to Forbes, Lucas is worth $3.9 billion, not $7.3 billion, because although Disney paid $4.05 billion to acquire LucasFilm, Lucas had said he will give most of the money to charity.
** A couple of months ago, it was reported that Madonna is now a billionaire thanks to earnings from her MDNA Tour. Forbes explains why that is inaccurate, due in part to the difference between gross earnings and net earnings.
