Winehouse, Craig David And Will Young On 'Rich List'

by | 25 April 2008

Amy Winehouse's tabloid troubles have not prevented her from making her fortune, with the singer included in the Sunday Times 2008 list of Britain's richest young millionaires.

The Back to Black star is named in tenth position in the newspaper's list of the UK's richest musicians under 30, part of its annual 'rich list' survey.

Craig David and Will Young join Winehouse in tenth equal position, with three estimated to have amassed a £10 million fortune.

Dhani Harrison, son of the late George Harrison, is named the richest musician under 30, having inherited £160 million from his Beatle father.

Violinist Vanessa-Mae Nicholson, 29, is named in second position with an estimated £32 million fortune, while Coldplay members Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland and Will Champion are in third equal with assets thought to total £30 million each - though the band's lead singer Chris Martin, at 31, was too old to be included in the list.

Manchester-born model Karen Elson is the highest new entry in the list in sixth, sharing a £25 million fortune with White Stripes husband Jack White while X Factor winner Leona Lewis is another new inclusion, with an estimated £6 million in the bank.

A separate list of Britain's richest 100 young millionaires included Harry Potter stars Emma Watson and Rupert Grint for the first time, with £10 million and £7 million respectively, though their co-star Daniel Radcliffe has featured before, with an estimated £20 million fortune.

The top ten richest under-30s in music according to the Sunday Times are:

1 Dhani Harrison (£160m)
2 Vanessa-Mae Nicholson (£32m)
=3 Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland, Will Champion (£30m)
6 Karen Elson and Jack White (£25m)
7 Katie Melua (£18m)
8 Joss Stone (£12m)
9 Charlotte Church and Gavin Henson (£11m)
=10 Craig David, Amy Winehouse, Will Young (£10m)
