It seems Diddy’s income can’t stop and won’t stop. The Bad Boy mogul has been named the highest paid celebrity in the world by Forbes Magazine.

The business magazine recently published its’ annual “Celebrity 100” list and Diddy landed at the number one spot earning an estimated $130 million in 2016. This should come as no surprise considering what a monster past year he had which included The Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour, a thriving partnership with liquor distributor Diageo and selling off one-third of Sean John Clothing to the Global Brands Group for an estimated $70 million.

He reportedly beat out the likes of Beyonce, author J.K. Rowling, Drake, The Weeknd, Howard Stern and Lebron James. Forbes fame is nothing new to Combs as has been gracing the periodical since grabbing the cover alongside comedian Jerry Seinfeld in 1999; ironically wearing a Sean John t-shirt. We expect the upcoming Bad Boy Entertainment documentary to keep his winning streak going in 2017.

When Puffy said, “if I make forty million b**** my year was slow” on the MMM album, it looks like he wasn’t kidding.
