Diddy has taken the top spot on Forbes’ annual list of the world’s highest-paid entertainers!

The 47-year-old musician and entrepreneur brought in $130 million last year, thanks to the Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour, his partnership with Ciroc vodka and the partial sale of his Sean John clothing line.

Diddy made the list just above Beyonce, who brought in $105 million from her Formation World Tour and the release of her Lemonade album.

Harry Potter author JK Rowling, who published a series of e-books last year, came in third at $95 million (£76m), making her the highest-paid celebrity outside of music.

She narrowly edged out Canadian hip-hop star Drake, Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo and Canadian R&B singer The Weeknd.

Guns N’ Roses entered the list at number 11, earning $84 million (£67.9m), after key members Axl Rose and Slash reunited for the first time in 23 years.
