    Yuna is the richest! She donates a lot of money to charity.

    Off topic.

    I'm always find that funny. She donated more than $2 mil, the number most of us just can dream of, it means she really much much more rich than that. But you will never know she is THAT rich if you just look at her in daily life (not in tons of CF), instead you will believe she is the poorest athlete "poor Yuna, you need fund immediately"

    If we compare Yuna with other athletes who also super rich, most of them live like a king, Yuna still live like an ordinary girl, it's say something loudly about her personality which is the main reason I became fan (not b/c her skating)

And why is Yuna the only non-American skater here? What about the Japanese skaters and Plushy, for example? Worthless list, but it does have some entertainment value
    What about those bags and designer clothes - or do you think he gets them for free or from some vendor off Broadway????? His husband or partner is a NY lawyer so one would think they aren't starving.

    Johnny is not worth worth more than Michelle Kwan.

    This doesn't seem all that accurate.
    Well Tara's dad is loaded. And remember the recesssion and housing market crash and S. Carolina isn't exactly Hollywood and Vine.

    Yes, many of Johnny's bags are in fact gifts from his fans--the same wealthy fans who travel around the world to see him skate--and some of his designer clothes are either borrowed or gifts from his designer friends. He does admit that fashion is his weakness and that he saves to buy an expensive fashion item, just like some people save for the latest pricey electronic gadget or an expensive trip. Unlike many self-proclaimed fashionistas he also wears the same clothes over and over again.

    I don't think the wealth stated in the article included the wealth/income of the spouse? Anyway, as far as Johnny's hubby is concerned, he was only recently adnitted first in the NJ and then NY bar, so he hasn't had an opportunity to contribute much to their wealth yet. I'm sure they make enough to live comfortably, especially now that they both have a job, but I'm pretty sure Johnny makes nowhere near what this ridiculous article suggests.

    And I still want to know why they think Plushy, Mao, Evan, and Witt, for example, are not doing well financially?

    Ah let's don't get carried way. Yuna's life while perhaps not that of a king is hardle spartan or impoverished. People don't send your children's college funds to help yuna or cry for her financially. She has many things which a lot of people wouldn't have and it carries on to her family.

    No no, of course she absolutely not poor, super rich instead. I just talk about her personality, while she is very rich but still live a very simple life, quite impressive for me

    Never seen "therichest.com" before -- but these numbers are crazy, joke numbers. Yuna, at this point, might be making millions, but most of these others are nowhere near that bracket.
