24. Marian Ilitch
NET WORTH: $4 billion
SOURCE OF WEALTH: Little Caesars

Continued; Mrs. Ilitch isn’t listed as the Tigers’ owner as the team is held in a family trust due to Mrs. I’s ownership of the MotorCity Casino.
It’s also worth mentioning that the Ilitches run Olympia Entertainment, Olympia Development, and several Foodservice companies in addition to Little Caesars.
