Diddy tops Forbes World’s Highest-Paid Celebrities List, Kylie Jenner makes debut (See list)

Forbes magazine has published the list of the highest paid celebrities in the world, and as expected, rap mogul Diddy leads the pack with a stunning income!

The rapper who first debuted two decades ago on the cover of the magazine, is tops with $130m income, and it is thanks to his  Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour, his partnership with Ciroc vodka and the sales made from his Sean John clothing line.

Other stars who shone brightly this year include Beyonce who takes no. 2 spot with $105m – thanks to her Formation World Tour and Lemonade release, the second-best haul of her career.  Author J.K. Rowling raked in $95m, Drake came next with $94m, and the list continues, with the youngster Kylie Jenner making her debut with a whooping $41m.
