Just like last year when he topped the Forbes list of hip hop’s wealthiest artists, Diddy is once again showing that he hasn’t come to play as he has again topped the Forbes list of World’s highest earners in entertainment for 2017.

The music artist and business mogul who is worth about $130m is said to have made the bulk of his money from selling one-third of his Sean John clothing line for an estimated $70 million, a lucrative Diageo Ciroc vodka partnership and his Bad Boy Family reunion tour.

Also, the most junior scion of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, 19 year old Kylie Jenner joins the list for the first time as the youngest. She comes in at No 59 beating out stars like Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Britney Spears etc. Her $41million earnings come from endorsements, her family’s reality TV show, a namesake cosmetics company and a clothing line.
