Rapper Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs managed to grab the
top spot on Forbes’ Highest-Paid Celebrity list of
2017, released Monday. Even celebrities like
singer Beyoncé, author J.K. Rowling and rapper
Drake were not a match for the entertainer-cum-
business mogul who earned $130 million pretax
in Forbes’ year-long scoring period.
“It ain’t about spendin’ money, I ain’t foolin’
around. I’m recording albums. I’m opening a
multimillion-dollar restaurant. I’m building
assets,” Diddy had claimed in a 1999 interview
with Forbes after he appeared in the Forbes
Celebrity 100 issue.
