Do you need any more proof that Detox will probably never see the light of day? Forbes just released their annual list of the highest paid celebrities. Topping the list are the usual suspects of Oprah Winfrey ($165 Mililon), Michael Bay ($160 Million), and Steven Spielberg ($130 Million).

Surprising to some, Dr. Dre placed 5th on the list by pulling in a whopping $110 million dollars between May 2011 and May 2012. No other Hip-Hop mogul came close. Not Jay-Z, Beyonce, or Diddy. Dr. Dre cashed out heavily last year when his Beats By Dre headphones company was bought out by HTC for over $300 Million. As Forbes' Dorothy Pomerantz notes, he did make a good amount of money off of music but it "pales in comparison" to what he made off of his designer headsets.

Detox? Forget about it, buddy.
