The World’s Highest-Paid Celebrities 2017

Diddy took the top spot on Forbes’ Celebrity 100 ranking of the world’s highest-paid celebrities, thanks to his Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour, a partnership with Diageo’s Ciroc vodka and selling one-third of his Sean John clothing line for an estimated $70 million.

Beyoncé is in the No. 2 spot: her $105 million payday, resulting from her Formation World Tour and Lemonade release is the second-best haul of her career. Author J.K. Rowling ($95 mil) returns to the list at No. 3, followed by Drake ($94 mil) at No. 4. Drake, who has jumped significantly from his No. 69 rank in the 2016 list, more than doubled his fortune, with most of it from relentless tour dates, plus endorsements with the likes of Apple, Nike and Sprite.

Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo, earning $93 million, rounds out the top five. Meanwhile, The Weeknd is sixth on $92 million, boosted not only by touring but by the massive growth in streaming. Elsewhere in the Top 10, Coldplay place eighth with £69.33 million ($88m) earned in the last year.
