Sean Combs, popularly called ‘Puff Daddy’ is the highest-paid entertainer, beating Taylor Swift to claim Forbes’ title this year.
P Daddy, who has released little music in past decade, is estimated to be worth a total of $820 million. The rapper turned businessman earned $130 million (£104.5m) in the past 12 months, which $70 million (£56m) came from selling a one-third stake in his Sean John clothing line.

Beyonce successfully secured the second position with $105 million (£84.4m), after her lucrative Formation tour, an elaborately staged set of performances that followed her Lemonade album.

Beyonce, who is expecting twins, is estimated to be worth $1 billion with her husband, rap mogul Jay Z, who himself was number 55 on the list.
