Swift tops the list having earned a pretax income of $185 million over the past year due to her Reputation World Tour, deal with Netflix to air a Reputation tour special, endorsement deals with Apple, AT&T and Diet Coke and her new record deal with Republic Records and Universal Music Group.

Jenner's brother-in-law and Swift's foil, Kanye West, takes the No. 3 spot.

West's Yeezy shoe line raked in an estimated $1 billion in sales over the past 12 months, Forbes reports.

While the two highest-paid celebrities were women, author J.K. Rowling was the only other woman to crack the top 20.

The 16th season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians is set to premiere on E!on March 31, and it turns out that even though Khloe Kardashian, 34, and Kylie Jenner, 21, know what will be featured on the series, it's still going to be painful for them to relive it.
