LONDON: Singer Cheryl Cole is the fourth richest young musician because her wealth has grown by 150 percent in the last year.
The singer, who is the face of L'Oreal Elvive hair care range and Coca Cola Zero, came fourth in the Young Music Millionaires aged 30-and-under list with earnings of $15.4 million.
She was beaten to the top spot by singer Charlotte Church, Katherine Jenkins and Leona Lewis, who are all worth $16.9 million.
Philip Beresford, who compiled the list, claims the statistics prove British women are working harder than ever and no longer need a man to be a success.
"The girls are showing you can make it big if you keep trying. It doesn't matter where you come from. Drive and determination can get you the Hollywood lifestyle," femalefirst.co.uk quoted him as saying.
"Britain's women superstars are showing they have the talent and drive to make it big in their bank balances. And they can do it without the support of overpaid husbands or hangers-on," he added.
