#Melania Trump is a very rich woman and is a former model, but how much is her #Net Worth alone without her #Husband, who is worth billions of dollars? A new report broke down an annual filing of her income and has some figures that may shock a lot of people. While she's wildly successful, certain aspects of her own empire aren't as lucrative as one might imagine. In fact, one aspect of her business brought in less than $200 for the year.

Melania's numbers

According to Express, a May 2016 financial disclosure filing revealed that the first lady was able to earn between $15,000 to $50,000 in royalties last year from her businesses, Melania Timepieces and Jewelry, and caviar skincare products line Melania by Melania Trump.

Less impressive is Melania LLC, which produced less than $200 and is worth less than $1,000. It's hardly hurting Mrs. Trump's brand since her net worth is reportedly $50 million, celebritynetworth.com reports. Winning the libel lawsuit against the Daily Mail fattened her checkbook as well. She sued the publication for printing a story that she was a high-end escort. In the end a judge dismissed the case and she re-filed the suit in New York City. She settled for accepting "significant" damages somewhere in the neighborhood of $3 million.

First lady role likely to draw more income down the road

Melania's $50 million net worth isn't as staggering as her husband's billion-dollar revenue, or Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump's $750 million empire, but it's still rich by anyone's standards. Considering the lifestyle she's become so accustomed to, $50 million covers a small percentage of the vast expenses required to lead a jet-setting life.

Of course, Melania Trump will never have to worry. Even if she didn't remain with her husband, she'd have endless opportunities to make a huge amount of money. She's made her mark in the fashion industry as one of the most stylish first ladies to represent the United States. Moreover, her popularity has increased in the polls and she's become an even bigger global star. Nowadays, anyone who leaves the White House after serving as president or first lady is looking to get even richer with book deals, speeches, appearances, and the like. Just look at the Obamas and their multi-million dollar book deals. Barack Obama will command $400,000 for a speech he'll deliver at a Wall Street convention this fall, which is drawing outrage from critics and some Democratic leaders.

Are you surprised to learn what Melania's net worth is? Did you think it would be more or less?
