Taxman knocks JK Rowling off Forbes’ rich list


Tragic news from Edinburgh – JK Rowling has dropped off Forbes’ list of world’s richest people. Apparently, she’s being taxed to the hilt, which explains why she has been forced back to writing in cafes. The Daily Telegraph details JK’s financial woes. Forbes claims she is no longer a dollar billionaire and has less than £640 million in the bank. (But how do they know?)

One of the newcomers to this annual list is American businesswomen Sara Blakely, the founder of Spanx slimming knickers. I never tried them. Apparently they work but leave a line on your tummy.

  1. Based on what she made I think she has much more than that. She just signed a major deal on her next work. But who knows the exact numbers.
