All Rihanna sees are dollar signs!
On Tuesday, Forbes reported that the "Pour It Up" singer's Savage X Fenty lingerie brand is now worth $1 billion.
The company recorded revenue growth of more than 200% last year. It also "increased its active VIP member base by more than 150%," the company said in a statement to WWD.
The good news comes just days after Rihanna, 32, announced that she and French luxury conglomerate LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton mutually agreed to pause her Fenty ready-to-wear label to focus on the Savage line.
"LVMH and Rihanna reaffirm their ambition to concentrate on the growth and the long-term development of the Fenty ecosystem focusing on cosmetics, skin care and lingerie," LVMH and Rihanna said in a statement to WWD.

Savage X Fenty recently "completed a $115 million Series B fundraising round" led by L Catterton (the largest global consumer-focused private equity firm) to "support the company's rapid growth and upcoming expansion into retail," a press release noted.
