It’s that time again — replete with sports stars, musicians and the odd author of children’s books — Forbes‘ list of highest-paid celebrities is in. To no surprise, Diddy topped the annual ranking of the highest-earning entertainers in the world, banking $130 million pretax in our 12-month scoring period.
Coming a close second is Beyoncé, who accumulated $105 million over the year thanks to her lucrative ‘Formation’ tour and the release of Lemonade. Her husband, Jay Z, who she is expecting twins with later this year, came in 55th partly thanks to TIDAL.
The Weeknd made this year’s list at number 6, bringing in around $92 million; due in large part to receiving a tour advance of $75 million. Drake cracked the top 5 coming in fourth with $94 million, surpassing soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
