The Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling estimated in recent years by Forbes to be worth 1 billion dollars, and therefore one of only a few dozen British billionaires, is no longer worth 10 figures, according to the bean-counting magazine.

Turns out Rowling is just a really lovely person who paid her taxes, apparently they tax the 1 percent, a whole lot in Britain, and gave a hunk of her fortune, roughly 160 million dollars, away to charity.

The decrease in net worth, only means, the creator of the entire Harry Potter world has got less than 640 million pounds in the bank, according to London's Daily Telegraph.

Currently, JK Rowling is working on a new novel-for-adults.
