Diddy tops the highest-paid list
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.
