Ellen DeGeneres ‘made $84MILLION in 2020’ – despite show being rocked by ‘toxic environment’ scandal

ELLEN DeGeneres made $84million in 2020, making her the 12th wealthiest celebrity of the year.

Despite ongoing accusations of a toxic work environment on the set of her talk show, Ellen raked in $84 million as of June 4 2020, according to Forbes.

As well as her talk show, the 62-year-old owns her own production company, A Very Good Production, which produces Little Big Shots, Ellen’s Game of Games, Green Eggs and Ham and has several other projects in the works.

Kylie Jenner topped the list making $590 million while her brother-in-law, Kanye West came in second $180 million.

The 23-year-old Kylie Cosmetics CEO’s top spot comes after Forbes revoked her billionaire status and accused the mom-of-one about lying about the success of the conpany through forged tax returns.

Kylie has always denied the claims.

Ellen's new wealth comes after she was accused of allegedly overseeing a “toxic” work culture that included racism, bullying and sexual harassment.

In early July, Ellen employees revealed bombshell accusations they suffered from "racism, fear, and intimidation” on set.

Former crew members and guests have hit out at the host claiming that she's much different from her happy-go-lucky television personality.

Staff from the hit daytime series spoke to BuzzfeedNews about the “toxic work environment” but remained anonymous due to fear of retribution.

The outlet said some staff claimed to have been fired because they took medical leave or bereavement days to attend family funerals.

Others alleged they were instructed by their managers to not speak directly to the 62-year-old comedian if they saw her at the office.

A black woman, who once worked for Ellen, told the website that she experienced “racist comments, actions, and microaggressions” during her year and a half as an employee.

Executive producers Ed Glavin and Kevin Leman and co-executive producer Jonathan Norman were fired as Warner Bros. continues to investigate the allegations.

Following the ousting, the comedian, 62, spoke to about 200 of her employees in a virtual meeting and offered a "teary-eyed" apology.
