Sean Diddy Combs Can Thank Vodka For His Highest-Paid Celeb Position On Forbes List

The highest-paid celebrity on Forbes’ 2017 list managed to beat out Beyonce for the top spot—and he has vodka to thank for it. Sean “Diddy” Combs tops this year’s annual list, having raked in $130 million pre-tax between June 2016 and June 2017. That’s partially due to his partnership with Diageo Ciroc vodka, but there was also his Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour and his $70 million sale of one-third of his Sean John clothing line. The rest of the top 10:

  1. Beyonce: She brought in $105 million, the second-largest yearly amount of her career.
  2. JK Rowling: $95 million
  1. Drake: $94 million
  2. Cristiano Ronaldo: $93 million
  3. The Weeknd: $92 million
