Ed Sheeran

Heat (UK) - - Rich List 2018 -

HOW HE MADE IT: Last year, we had Ed’s wealth pegged at £52m. The scruff­bag trou­ba­dour’s nearly dou­bled that thanks to big bucks rolling in from third al­bum ÷ (6m copies sold) and ticket sales from his £225mgross­ing two-year world tour. De­spite this, he could be miss­ing out on £20m of roy­al­ties from

Shape Of You af­ter pay­ments were frozen due to an on­go­ing copy­right case.

HOW HE SPENDS IT: Since buy­ing his sprawl­ing Suf­folk es­tate in 2012, Ed has added a tree­house, cin­ema, “hob­bit hole” man cave and pub with its own un­der­ground ac­cess tun­nel. He’s also snapped up four neigh­bour­ing prop­er­ties to make the coun­try pile even big­ger (lo­cals dub it “Sheer­anville”), and bought a new £20m eight-bed­room Lon­don home, too. Doubt­less, he saves even more cash with his “High Five” Nando’s Black Card, which promises free chicken for him and five friends.
