Los Angeles Times - - CALENDAR - — Nar­dine Saad

It’s still all about the Ben­jamins for en­ter­tainer Sean Combs, who has been named the high­est-paid en­ter­tainer of 2017 by Forbes mag­a­zine.

Diddy, the veteran mul­ti­hy­phen­ate, earned a cool $130 mil­lion pre­tax in the fi­nan­cial mag­a­zine’s 12month scor­ing pe­riod and edged out singer Bey­oncé for the top spot in the an­nual rank­ings.

The 47-year-old mogul’s earn­ings hail from the sale of his Sean John cloth­ing la­bel, which re­port­edly fetched an es­ti­mated $70 mil­lion. Ad­di­tion­ally, the Ciroc-ped­dling rap­per-pro­ducer also banked hefty sums from his vodka part­ner­ship and the star-stud­ded Bad Boy Fam­ily Re­union Tour.

Mean­while, Bey re­port­edly earned an es­ti­mated $105 mil­lion with the help of her For­ma­tion World Tour and the re­lease of her “Lemon­ade” vis­ual al­bum.

“Harry Pot­ter” scribe J.K. Rowl­ing re­turned to the rank­ings in the No. 3 spot with $95 mil­lion, Toron­to­bred rap­per Drake earned $94 mil­lion and Real Madrid soc­cer star Cris­tiano Ron­aldo earned $93 mil­lion, the mag­a­zine re­ported.
