Forbes have named Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs number one on their list of highest paid entertainers. The rapper/music producer topped Forbes’ “Celebrity 100 List”, revealing Combs raked in pretax earnings of $130 million.
The music mogul is now the richest man in American music with an empire including partnerships with several liquor companies, Aquahydrate alkaline water, a stake in Revolt TV and a majority stake in Sean John – the company he founded, which according to Forbes does nearly half a billion dollars in revenue each year. Adding to his annual revenue for the past year was the $70 million he brought in for the sale of one third of his Sean Jean clothing line. Coming in at number two was Queen Bee – Beyonce – with $105 million in earnings, closely followed by author, J.K. Rowling, who raked in $95 million.
Singer Taylor Swift, who topped the list last year, dropped all the way to number 49 on this year’s list.
