Madonna's A Billionaire Now, Thanks To Record 'MDNA' Tour Earnings (REPORT)

Madonna's Billion Dollar Achievement

Madonna's a billionaire now, according to a new report in the New York Post.

Her net worth jumped after her MDNA Tour brought in a whopping $305,158,363, making it the highest-grossing tour of 2012. That's not counting the $75 million in merch sales, nor does it include the $10 million in TV and DVD rights that came with the 88-stop jaunt around the globe.

The news comes amid a strong few months for the singer. Madonna made a bold statement at this year's GLAAD Awards, where she arrived to present Anderson Cooper with an award in full cub scout regalia. The costume was a comment on the Boy Scouts of America's gay ban, and drew the ire of the likes of Rick Perry.

Despite plenty of controversy and negative press, the singer continues to prove her staying power. In addition to the tour, "MDNA" notched a No. 1 Billboard debut (although sales tumbled dramatically in the following weeks). Madonna's 2012 Super Bowl halftime performance also drew in more viewers than Beyonce's did this past February.

According to Womens' Wear Daily, the 54-year-old singer's net worth had hovered around $700 million for some time.
